EVERYTHING YOU NEED, NOTHING YOU DON’T
Our products contain only ingredients with a purpose. Just as in nature, we leave out fillers that are of no value and hand-select ingredients that are synergistic and effective. KRS formulas will always be free of dyes, artificial fragrances, parabens, and harmful chemicals. Our guarantee is clean, safe formulas using actives that work.
HONEST SKINCARE FOR LIFE
We believe in honesty – you should know exactly what’s in your products with no hidden ingredients – that’s why we publish a full ingredient list with every product, including necessary preservatives.
We deliver fresh, potent actives, every bottle, every shipment by formulating in small batches. Fresher is better, so that’s what we do.
HIGH QUALITY, WITHOUT A HIGH PRICE
We minimize operating costs by building our business organically. The majority of new clients are referred to us by word-of-mouth, editorial, and blogger referrals, enabling us to deliver high quality without a high price. We invite you to compare our ingredients and prices to the most exclusive cosmetic brands in the country.
INGREDIENTS WITH INTEGRITY
Our products contain only safe ingredients that you can trust and nothing else. KRS ingredients will always be 100% cruelty-free.
All of our products are developed and supported in close collaboration with a team of professionals, including our world-renowned biochemist, esthetician advisors, expert formulators and laboratory technicians. Our team approach and small business philosophy allows us to stay on top of the most current science in skincare, and to bring those advances to you quickly and reliably.
WE BELIEVE IN:
HONEST SKINCARE FOR LIFE
Great skin is not the result of a “miracle product”, or even one great ingredient, no matter how powerful or beneficial. Healthy, beautiful skin comes from a consistent daily skincare regimen, using a synergistic blend of scientifically proven, active ingredients. We are strong advocates for our core ingredients, but also believe that no single active provides all of the nutrition our skin needs for optimal, long-term health. Just as a healthy body requires nutrients from many sources, the key to your “best” skin is feeding it with many different actives, each with a different purpose and benefit.
Each of our formulas contains a core blend of antioxidants, providing protection from free-radical damage. Nutritional ingredients work to repair past damage, and provide for the basic needs of the skin – cleansing, exfoliation, and moisture. We believe everyone deserves to have healthy skin that feels comfortable and gives him or her a feeling of confidence. A goal of our company is to keep our quality products affordable for a greater number of people, and always provide real value and results.
HEALTHY SKIN IS BEAUTIFUL—WITH OR WITHOUT MAKEUP
With four young children, makeup isn’t always (make that rarely) an option for Erica (see our story below), nor for many others, either due to time constraints or personal preference. Healthy skin radiates natural beauty and requires little or no edification. Makeup should be optional – designed to enhance and enjoy rather than cover flaws. We believe that a high quality, consistent skincare regimen can help most women achieve this.
EMPOWERING EVERYONE TO STAY YOUNG
Skin that radiates good health and youth is not just for women. More and more men are discovering the benefits of an easy, uncomplicated, daily skincare regimen. Shaving bumps, loss of tone and elasticity, breakouts, fluid retention in the eye area, are all common issues for men that can be addressed with a good set of core ingredients. KRS created an initial set of unisex products with male-specific labeling. The core of our Men’s line – hard working, proven ingredients, simple daily regimen, no fragrances, no frills, just noticeable improvements. While we advocate for taking good care of your skin at all stages of life, we also believe in the restorative power of nutrients and antioxidants. Our skin is a renewable resource, constantly turning over, making new, healthy cells. It’s never too late to start taking good care of your skin; our skin responds very well and pretty quickly to high quality nutrition and hydration. All KRS products, even our cleansers, are designed to protect the long-term health and youth of the skin, using potent antioxidants and anti-aging actives. We believe in caring for the skin in every step of your skincare routine.
WORKING HAND-IN-HAND WITH PROFESSIONALS AND STATE-OF-THE-ART PRACTITIONERS
We endorse the great treatments available from estheticians and medical practices. Our philosophy is that clients achieve optimum results by combining a program of regular professional care with a consistent at-home, skincare regimen. We believe that using quality skincare actives at home extends the beneficial effects of professional treatments. Great nutritional products prescribed as after care can also provide a calming effect for the skin after more aggressive peels or procedures. KRS advocates for a comprehensive, holistic approach to achieving beautiful, healthy skin. Our blog features timely articles on nutrition, healthy habits, and general wellness as a primary skincare foundation that is enhanced by our high-quality topical formulas.
INSPIRED BY EXPERIENCE, CARING,
AND A DESIRE FOR SAFER AND BETTER
Kate Ryan Skincare is a mother-daughter partnership and business, thus representing two generations of women and two distinct perspectives. They use their own generational experiences with skin care—Erica a mother of four in her 30’s and Bev in her 60’s—to create products that speak to the full spectrum of age, skin types, and specific concerns.
As an Intensive Care Nurse, Erica has always had a passion for physiology, chemistry, healthy lifestyles, and empowering people to live better—which led her to a specific interest in natural beauty, and cosmetics.
During Erica’s first pregnancy, healthy living became a priority, especially eating real food and minimizing exposure to chemicals common in processed foods. She wanted skincare that was professional quality and strength, produced the results she was looking for, but most importantly, knowing that what she was feeding her skin was safe.
Failing to find an acceptable solution, Erica and her Mother, Bev, teamed up with scientists who shared their passion to create something better—higher quality actives, topical nutrition at effective potencies, powerful antioxidants, anti-aging actives that work — without fillers, fragrance, dyes, or harmful chemicals.
