Healthy skin depends on its natural processes being in balance. Evolu nourishes and restores this balance, returning your skin to its beautiful best.
Established in 1997 , the seed for Evolu's creation was really planted years earlier when founder Kati Kasza worked as an internationat flight attendant and training manager for Air New Zealand.
Routinely dealing with drying air-conditioned inteeriors, endless timezone changes and countless hours of abbreviated steep, 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.
