In Tibet, Kate came across what would become Akar's two core ingredients sea buckthorn and goji berry and learned about their time-honed benefits. The raw, unadulterated nature of these berries touched her on a personal level. After incorporating these ingredients into her skincare routine, she felt the need to share her fruitful results and that was how Akar came about.

While her journey began as a result of her poor health, she feels that self-care should be part of our daily regimen. Skincare is a deeply intimate process that encourages you to set aside time and care for yourself. To Kate, Akar embodies these ideas of self-love; its Tibetan origins inspire clam to the touch.
