About

The new generation of skincare. 
Highlighting and taking care of all the characteristics that make you, you. We create everyday essentials – no nonsense, non toxic. All natural, vegan and organic. 

Our products are driven by people, design and nature. 

Philosophy

Inclusivity and diversity is key to us. Our research is based on people from all ethnicities all around our planet. By understanding the skin types and conditions from a diverse group of people, we are able to put high quality botanicals together and create essentials that actually do good.

Next to creating effective skincare products we are a platform, an open-minded place to discuss and elaborate upon everything we as individuals encounter and pursue. 

We love to engage in conversations about art, design, culture, people and well-being. 

Background

At a very young age I didn’t feel represented in the beauty industry. I felt disconnected to the picture that was portrayed as beautiful. 

I fled to the Netherlands from Iran at the age of 4. As a young refugee in the Netherlands I did everything to be accepted – that’s when I found my passion to strive for a more equal, diverse and inclusive world. I started collaborating with youngsters and kids in different refugee camps.

Working in numerous refugee camps I concluded that there are so many people – like me – struggling with beauty standards mainstream media has created. 

In my own vision I saw this versatile group of youngsters as the most beautiful and diverse individuals I have had the pleasure to meet. 

From that moment my mission was to fight for diversity and inclusivity in the beauty industry. That’s when SKØN was born. 


Stay in touch. Take care.
