Kimiko Foster obtained a double major in Anthropology and Environmental Studies in her back pocket and has developed an understanding of the patterns of people in the past, and the burden of the various global crises in the future. While working on her degree, she also worked at the local government as an environmental outreach assistant. For four years she went to events, businesses, and high schools to communicate various messages in sustainability. From business owners, to families, to children, to teachers, to high school students, the feedback was a passionate curiosity for change. It was through those conversations, Kimiko was inspired for the possibilities of the future.
The process of learning to make all of her own products was both infinite and humbling. She quickly became overwhelmed in the world of possibilities, and endless exotic natural ingredients available on the market and that is where Mikko Skin Co was born.
“The skin is our largest organ. It is connected to our intestines, and our lungs. It is a living, breathing membrane that is in constant communication with its internal and external environments. We believe that our skin deserves fresh food.
Education is the foundation of this business. Transparency is our promise. We want you to see right through us to our suppliers, and our ingredients. By using fewer ingredients, and including suppliers on our labelling, we hope to generate public curiosity around the ingredients we are ingesting through our skin.
Ingredients matter. We chose each ingredient to serve a purpose to the skin. There are no toxic ingredients. We chose glass containers because they are also non-toxic, and will not leech toxic chemicals into the product. We are here to shift the way we look at skincare, and offer a fresh product without preservatives and harmful toxic ingredients.
Miiko Skin Co is committed to providing you with safer skincare, naturally.”
