Kapua Browning founded Honua Hawaiian Skincare in 2015, when the demand for her Hawaiian crafted products grew beyond her treatment room. Born and raised on Oahu as an avid surfer and beach bum, Browning began to notice sun damage and pigmentation in her own complexion as early as her 20’s. In an attempt to take care of her skin, she became passionate about beauty and began to train in aesthetics and learn about traditional Hawaiian healing and medicinal herbs. After a decade of experience as a licensed esthetician, Browning began the building blocks for her own hand-crafted skincare collection, Honua Skincare.
The creation of Honua allowed Browning to share her love for Hawaiian culture, botanicals and aesthetics with the world. She places the highest value on the traditional ideologies of Hawaiian ancestry and aims to put “aloha” or love and compassion into everything Honua. Her wish is for people around the world to enjoy Honua’s natural products, take care in skin rituals and pass along the aloha spirit to the next person.
Honua Skincare’s developed four-part ritual offers a beautiful, glowing, vibrant complexion with the Pa’akai Cleansing Cream, Hawaiian Beauty Water, ALOHA Youth Serum and ‘Olena Oil. For men, Honua offers the Na Kane Men’s All-In-One Facial Care. From concept to creation, brainstorm to bottle, every product worthy of the Honua Skincare name comes to life under the watchful eye of Kapua Browning.
