The Place Where Mother Nature and Skincare Meet
Karibu365 is a Women owned Bespoke Skincare Company rooted in crafting premium quality, luxury skincare products from natural ingredients. We truly believe that Mother Nature has provided us with a plethora of gifts capable of helping us live healthy lives, naturally, and that incorporating these gifts into our daily skincare routines will help to maintain healthy, glowing skin.
“Karibu” is the Swahili word for “Welcome”. We selected the word because it represents the warmth and joy felt/extended towards a beloved guest when they arrive into our space. A warmth and joy we don't often extend towards ourselves. The number “365” is symbolic of the minimum number of opportunities we should take to pamper ourselves in a year - 365 days. Together, Karibu365 is meant to remind us all to be as kind, warm, loving and “welcoming” to ourselves as we are to those we love and welcome into our lives.
Karibu365 Skincare was founded by former English Teacher, Sandra Mullings. The body line was created to fulfill a personal need for high quality, luxury and natural skin-care options to incorporate into her self-care routines and rituals. It includes handmade soaps, body scrubs, bath salts and body butters.
The facial line was developed shortly after, when, for the first time in her 44 years, she experienced severe bouts of hormonal acne. After being prescribed medications by her dermatologist, and researching the side effects, she decided prescribed medication was not the route for her. A previous experience with an irreversible dose of medication, resulting in severe side effects, had turned her off from medication that was not “medically” necessary. After conducting further intense research into natural alternatives for healthy skin-care, KIINI and KAVU were born. The line includes a powder facial cleanser, clay face mask, hydrating face mist and moisturizing facial oil, as well as a floral facial steam.
It is no secret that what we put ON our bodies, is as important as what we put INTO our bodies. Karibu365’s products are based on this premise. Handcrafted from food grade ingredients in highly concentrated quantities, they are meant to infuse skin with the inherent properties of each ingredient. We focus on using 98% Plant Based ingredients, from mostly local and/or organic sources, to maintain the integrity of each product.
Karibu365 IS NOT just a skincare company. We are not only serious about providing high quality skin-care products, but also products geared towards Self Care. As such, we have crafted products that not only provide results, but encourage a spirit of indulgence. While some products can be used as a part of your daily routine, some are meant to be incorporated into a ritual for your skin AND your soul. Creating a ritual around your skincare will not just provide healing on the outside, but also a sense of well-being. Indulge all your senses with our 100% natural products.
As a part of our Self Care routines, it is equally important to ensure that we are also taking care of Mother Nature, the source of our ingredients. As a part of our mission, we aim to cause negligible impact to the environment. As a result, we strive to keep our packaging as minimal as possible, while still maintaining the superb integrity of our products. In this way, we reduce our after-market contribution to landfills. We also make a special effort to source raw ingredients that utilize minimal packaging, and reuse/recycle the packaging that we do receive. We also use sustainable practices, such as limiting our water and energy use to the minimal amount required to manufacture our products.
