skin care guides

At Kari Gran, we believe that every woman, regardless of her age or skin type, deserves an honest, easy-to-maintain skin care routine that nourishes her skin effectively with naturally derived ingredients. We believe there’s more that unites us than divides us, yet the beauty industry has been playing to our differences for as long as anyone can remember; with a new product for every little worry and formulas that treat symptoms rather than providing the nourishment that skin truly needs. Kari Gran offers women a clean, honest alternative to skin care because we believe that Mother Nature knows best when it comes to the care and feeding of our skin. We believe that the best skin care products are made with pure, simple ingredients such as organic botanical oils.

In our skin care guides, we’ll explore healthy lifestyle choices, skin care trends, current noteworthy literature, popular wellness rituals, and much more. We are committed to helping women find an elegant skin care solution that adapts to the needs of real life and places value on health and hydration over youth and perfection.

The Power of Pumpkin Seed Oil for Skin

Pumpkin seed oil is also known as "green gold" —some have called it the greatest thing since coconut oil.  We won’t get into that debate, but it’s undeniably an effective and healthy nutrient for skin. I do love an ingredient you put in and on your body.  At KGHQ we leave little bowls of organic pumpkin seeds out for snacking as they are a great nutritional source of magnesium, protein, zinc, and iron. Just look at what...

The Benefits of Amla Oil

Amla, otherwise known as Indian Gooseberry had long been on my list of ingredients I wanted to use. If you’re familiar with our line, you know that we don’t come out with new things on the regular. Only when I feel like there’s something really missing and that I would truly use every day, does it make it into the lineup. That is why I created our Body and Bath Oil. Amla oil had intrigued me for some time. It’s a marvel at locking in moisture. And is naturally rich in Vitamin C, Omega-3 and Omega- 6 essential fatty acids. ...

Sesame Oil for Your Skin

Ever wonder what tops my “Favorite Things” list? A luxurious soak in the tub. I’ve always been a bath girl.  Not only does it feel a bit indulgent but it also allows time for me to multitask and get my meditation in.  It’s one of the best ways I know to be calm and clear. Cut to the production room, I carved out some time to create my idea of a perfect blend of ultra-moisturizing oils for the body, (many I hadn’t played with before) making sure it felt like they were related to the skincare line but just a...
