Behind the Brand: Founder Katini Yamaoka on Creating Katini Skin

Katini Skin was founded by Katini Yamaoka. Katini’s cultural heritage and upbringing is interwoven through Japan, Africa and Australia. Raised plant-based from birth, and educated at a neo-humanistic school, Katini was gifted with an understanding of natural healing from a very young age. Going from the dense Australian rainforest to the cosmopolitan metropolis of New York as a working artist has given Katini an intrinsic understanding of wellness and design.

Katini Skin is committed to a responsible and sustainable path. Nature provides, so we have to protect and support the natural world with ethical best practices. We choose suppliers based on their sustainability credentials, that are fair-trade certified, vegan and cruelty free. We seek wild harvested ingredients whenever possible.

Katini Skin is deeply committed to positively impacting the natural world and believes every step must be carefully placed, from sourcing, production and packaging, to ensure we have a sustainable strategy.
