Katini Skin, developed in partnership with Black Progress Matters’ Black-Owned Business Incubator, is the home for the highest quality facial oils that will transport you to a place where ancient wisdom is the source of beauty and truth. Founded by singer-songwriter Katini Yamaoka, the collection of premium facial oils is derived from native ingredients from Japan, Africa, Australia, and beyond.
“Growing up across three different continents, I was able to experience and learn beauty secrets from women around the world. A source of constant inspiration for me is the attention to subtle details from Japan - the land of the rising sun, the depth and wisdom of Mother Africa - the cradle of humankind, and the sacred richness from the soil of Australia - the land down under. Our ingredients are from natural, wild harvested and organic flora from around the globe. We are strongly committed to sustainability and giving back.” – Katini Yamaoka, Founder, Katini Skin
In the recent Business of the Beat Podcast “Everyone Has a Purpose in This World,” Katini discusses her career journey from pop music artist to beauty entrepreneur and highlights the bridge that her biracial culture has infused across her music and her brand. With Saks Fifth Avenue as her first retailer, followed by Thirteen Lune and a physical presence in Bergdorf Goodman, Katini shares her plans to expand globally and intentionally to her home countries of Japan, Africa, and Australia.
