Kanzen Skincare was born out of a personal journey, deeply rooted in London-based singer and songwriter Katie London's struggles with her skin. While touring under intense lighting and consistently wearing heavy makeup, Katie grappled with severe acne. This challenge, combined with memories of her youth – a transition from confidence to shyness due to her skin condition – made her determined to find a solution. David, her partner of eight years, who had expertise in nano science and natural chemicals, noticed the toll Katie's skin took on her self-esteem, especially during her high-profile performances. Recognising an opportunity to merge their experiences, the duo embarked on a relentless quest to develop a natural product tailored for acne-prone, congested skin, as well as other skin conditions. Katie reflects, “Throughout our three-year development journey, David and I faced numerous challenges. Yet, the vision remained unwavering: to create affordable, non-invasive products that harmoniously cater to diverse skin types. Our aim has always been to help others feel their absolute best."

Teaming up with her long-term partner, David Connor, a celebrated music producer turned nano-technology enthusiast, the duo channelled their unique experiences into founding Kanzen Skincare.
