With our founding ingredients, Goji Berry and Sea Buckthorn sourced straight from the Tibetan Plateau, Akar Skin is grounded in the idea of ancient healing. Stemming from our Tibetan roots, Akar Skin has grown to sustainably harvest over seventy plant-based superfoods to protect, address, and alleviate skin concerns and slow signs of aging. With nutrient profiles that contain high concentrations of vitamins, fatty acids, proteins and minerals, all of our ingredients were hand-selected to deliver real results to your skin.

Sea Buckthorn and Goji Berries have been valued for centuries for their amazing healing benefits due to their high concentrations of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids. Kate witnessed first-hand the effects these plants had on her skin. From there, she envisioned incorporating these special ingredients into a reparative skincare routine she could share with the world. However, as Akar Skin grew, so did our ingredients list. We now use over seventy plant-based ingredients, all of the highest quality and standard to ensure safe products and effective skincare.
"When the skin is nourished, the heart and mind can be full."

“Akar” means white crystal in Tibetan, and symbolizes purity, wellness and new beginnings. Kate Chen, founder of Akar, sorely needed these three pillars when the stressful demands of her corporate banking career saw her hospitalized on a business trip to London.
This was a huge turning point in her life. Quitting her job and taking a much-needed break, she flew to Tibet to re-ground herself and heal. But it turned out that Tibet had more to offer than rest and respite. The ancient land was fertile with wisdom, and it was here where Kate learned that healing is a cyclical task that starts from within. This is where our three pillars meet.
Akar is committed to delivering the purest, nutrient-dense products created with only one thing in mind – your wellness. Present-day consumers are increasingly concerned with the origins of the ingredients they put on their skin, whether the packaging is recycled, reusable, and sustainably sourced; and whether the manufacturing carbon footprint is as low as possible. These are the standards that Akar is committed to, and are the values that you help support whenever you purchase one of our products.
