What started out as a hobby making luxury lip balms in her kitchen turned into a luxury makeup and skincare line in 2011, after Kari was diagnosed with an autoimmune thyroid disorder. With a newfound clarity of purpose, Kari synched up with her longtime friend and business partner, Lisa Strain to launch a no-nonsense, pure and functional skincare and makeup line using only organic, wildharvested and non-GMO ingredients. Universally anhydrous, each product in the tightly edited system is formulated without water, fillers or synthetic preservatives and is designed to multi-task to reduce clutter and promote simplicity.
Consisting of 5 skincare formulas, Kari Gran is slow beauty that promotes simplicity rather than catering to marketing cycles. Affectionately referred to as ‘The Little Black Dress’ of eco-skincare, Kari Gran makeup invites us to ‘wear our skin’ with the same ease, comfort and grace as our favorite LBD.
