When starting her own skincare line, Kate Chen, Founder of Akar Skin, knew she wanted to create healthy, all natural and clean products free of unnecessary chemicals that damage skin overtime. It wasn’t until Kate took a trip to the Tibetan Plateau that she felt truly inspired. With the Tibetan Plateau’s high altitudes, it is completely free from pollution and is considered the 3rd cleanest location on the earth, after the North & South poles.
Akar Means “White Crystal” in Tibetan.
Kate decided to base the skincare lines' name off of the white crystal because it is a symbol for purity; following her desire to create potent products that are pure and 100% natural for Akar Skin. Akar sources the highest-grade natural ingredients, all organic, wild harvested or gathered from the Tibetan plateau to ensure ingredient efficacy and limits ingredient exposure to pesticides and toxins from both farming and harvesting. Customers will never find mineral oil, synthetic fragrances or colorants, sulfates, parabens, phenoxyethanol, silicones, PEGs, PPGs, DEA, TEA, phthalates, GMO ingredients or artificial preservatives in any of Akar’s products.
Some of the ingredients used in their purest of forms are the following:
Rosa Centifolia (Rose) Flower Water – Used in the Lush Balance Toning Mist
The Lush Balance Toning Mist is formulated to protect skin from free radicals and help smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Vegan stem cells derived from saffron promote cell repair. Rose and neroli restore skin’s natural pH balance and tighten pores.
Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel – Used in the Mini Care Lip Butter
The Mini Care Lip Butter lends perfect hydration for even the driest lips. This refreshing whip of soothing oils and nutrient-rich extracts will smooth lines and keep lips soft, supple and glossy for hours on end. No need to constantly reapply.
Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil – Key Ingredient in the Nutrient Boost Eye Serum
The Nutrient Boost Eye Serum is a potent eye serum for your delicate eye area and is formulated specifically to reduce puffiness, dryness, dark circles and wrinkles. It contains goji seed oil that is rich in essential fatty acids, working synergistically with pumpkin seed oil, mushroom extract and a wealth of nutritive plant extracts to tighten and rejuvenate tired skin.
