Our Story


Established in 1997, the seed for Evolu's creation was really planted years earlier, when founder Kati Kasza worked as an international flight attendant. Routinely dealing with drying air-conditioned interiors, endless time-zone changes and countless hours of abbreviated sleep, she struggled with unbalanced, depleted skin that was crying out for rescue.

Determined to find a balanced solution, one that would naturally renew, restore and protect her skin, Kati drew inspiration from her Hungarian family upbringing in New Zealand: her father was a pioneer winemaker, her mother an expert herbalist.

Imbued with their botanical knowledge and passion for the beneficial properties of plants, Kati brought to life her unique vision: skincare that would not only restore natural balance, but also be a pleasure to wear.

Our commitment

"My childhood was steeped in nature and the outdoors, planting and harvesting food, cultivating herbs for their medicinal benefits, drinking the nectar from flowers and fruit. My life has been informed by botanicals; their wisdom, their beauty, their power. Now I spend my time translating that into products and practices everyone can benefit from.

At Evolu, our commitment is to you and to nature. We promise to balance effectiveness with best ethical practice. We promise to always do the best for your skin; to enhance, protect and nourish it.

Excluded for good

We promise to never test our products on animals, to avoid chemical nasties, and to always consider the environmental impact our packaging has.

We promise to continue to act responsibly and to maintain our CarboNZero status which validates how seriously we take our role as business-minded environmentalists.

We believe in bringing the kind of satisfying, transformative, sensorial experience we created with our  first formula to every person who uses an Evolu product.

Twenty years on and thousands of loyal customers later, and we’re still bursting with new ways to delight and deliver real results for the skin.

We also commit to being kind, being grateful and remembering to relax and have some fun!

With love...
