Hi we’re Kani!

 

Nice to

meet you.

Kani was founded in 2015 on the belief that beauty isn’t built in lab by large corporations but found in nature, raw and uncompromised. We got our start as industry outsiders and created a female founded  beauty brand that values purity, sustainability and harmony.

We’re building a movement where everything starts with you. Instead of aiming for unattainable perfection we believe in embracing the natural beauty in everyone. We want to create the products you want and that make you smile when you use them. The result is a culture of inclusion and positivity, all while having a ton of fun.

Our mission

WHAT WE STAND FOR :

Each product that we produce is created with special consideration for sensitive skin and in keeping with understandable ingredients and compositions. We see our products as food for the face and body, so they should be as discriminating as the food we eat. Our low-volume batches, individually made by hand are each given the human touch, literally. It should go without saying that the goods we create should be something we’re proud of, and we are. We use them everyday. This simple yet incredibly sophisticated process celebrates the purity of plants. 

Transparency

Our line of products wants to celebrate natural and holistic rituals in every way possible, in doing so all of our products will always only contain natural ingredients sourced under the strictest rules. We feel that everyone should know what they are putting in and on their bodies.

Social Responsibility

Because we believe in the power of passing wisdom down through the generations, part of all our proceeds go to charity. Every so often we switch who we partner up to donate to. For more head to our giving back page.

Enviromental Impact

We live and thrive in our environment, because of that all of our packaging is recyclable. Every single component we use is recyclable and is targeted to have a lowest carbon footprint. We love our planet so lets keep it green.

Our promise

ALWAYS VEGAN + CRUELTY-FREE

We started Kani because we wanted an alternative to the beauty brands that only care about profits. These brands make products overseas and are able bypass certain regulations, some of those being hurting defenseless animals and people in the process. Because of this we will NEVER EVER test our products on animals. We love those furry little creatures. Kani means rabbit in Finnish.

AT KANI EVERYTHING WE USE IS RESPONSIBLY AND ETHICALLY SOURCED AND IS NEVER EVER TESTED ON ANIMALS. 

We love animals.

We have always been and will always be a vegan company. As an officially certified cruelty-free and vegan we vow to never ever test on animals.

As safe as it gets.

We take the quality of our products very seriously. Every single ingredient in our body care products has a top rating on the EWG Skin Deep Database, so you as a consumer can make the right decisions.

ORGANIC ALL THE WAY.

We take pride in our ingredients and sourcing. Most of our products have 95% organic ingredients or above with the Oregon Tilth seal as it is one of the strictest certifications to obtain.

INGREDIENTS WE DON’T USE IN KANI

AND WHY WE DON’T USE THEM.

PARABENS

Labeled as: methyl-, ethyl-, butyl-, propyl-

Preservative

Added to products to extend shelf life by inhibiting the growth of microbes, fungi and bacteria in order to. Parabens have been linked to increases in breast cancer by mimicking estrogen and causing endocrine disruption. They have also been linked to reproductive toxicity, neurotoxicity, immunotoxicity, and skin irritation.

PHTHALATES

Labeled as: DBP (dibutyl phthalate), DEP (diethyl phthalate), BPA (Bisphenol)

Plasticizer and Skin Conditioner

Banned in the EU, but commonly found in many personal care products sold in the US. They are used in cosmetics to help ingredients penetrate the skin, extend fragrances shelf life and maintain flexibility in nail polishes. Phthalates are highly toxic and are absorbed through the skin (and nails). They have been found to cause damage to the reproductive systems for both genders and affect the fertility and genital development in males.

FORMALDEHYDE

Labeled as: Formaldehyde, Quanternium-15, DMDM hydantoin, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Diazolidinyl Urea, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate

Preservative

Found in nail polish and hair smoothing products. Even absent as an ingredient it can be present from the combination of chemicals such as Bronopol and Quaternium-15 which work together to form formaldehyde releasing preservatives. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen, skin irritant and suspected to increase liver toxicity. It also can cause severe allergic rashes which become more likely with long term exposure.

TRICLOSAN

Labeled as: Triclosan

Anti-bacteria

Antimicrobial pesticide that may actually help create drug-resistant bacteria. Found in toothpaste, antiperspirants / deodorants and shaving creams. Triclosan has been found to be toxic to water environment and may harm the reproductive system as it is shown to disrupt thyroid functions.

SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCE

Labeled as: Fragrance, Parfum

Fragrance

Fragrances are considered to be “trade secrets” so brands are not required to disclose the actual ingredient list. Testing has found an average of 14 different synthetic chemicals in most well known products with added fragrances. These chemicals are known irritants, allergens and hormone disruptors. Long term exposure to these chemicals may contribute to increased immunotoxicity and allergic reactions. Be sure to read labels carefully, even products listed as “Fragrance Free” may still contain fragrance ingredients to mask other scents

SILOXANES

Labeled as: Cyclomethicone, Cyclotetrasiloxane, Cyclopentasiloxane, and Cyclohexasiloxaneand

Emollient

Primarily used to help smooth and moisten products like deodorants and facial moisturizers. Suspected to harm the reproductive system, potentially impairing fertility, increasing uterine tumors and changing hormone compositions.

SLES, SLS, ALS

Labeled as: BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) and BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene)

Synthetic Antioxidants

These two chemicals are typically found in lipsticks, moisturizers and even food products. They are synthetic antioxidants used to preserve cosmetics are also quite dangerous. Known to actually cause skin depigmentation, they have also been shown to cause damage to the liver and stomach

PEGs

Labeled as: PEG, Polyethylene, Polyethylene Glycol, Polyoxyethylene, Ceteareth

Surfactants, Emulsifiers and Skin Conditioners

A set of petroleum based chemicals, these are often found as cream bases in cosmetics because of their ability to thicken and soften moisture carriers. The main issue with these ingredients is that they frequently contaminated by 1,4-Dioxane, a known carcinogen that penetrates the skin and has been shown to harm the nervous system. It is possible for this impurity to be removed, but studies show it often isn’t.

PETROLATUM

Labeled as: Petroleum Jelly, Mineral Oil

Emollient

Found in 1 in every 14 personal care and beauty products in the market. There is concern that mineral oil hydrocarbons are a contaminant of the human body.

PHENOXYETHANOL

Labeled as: Phenoxyethanol

Preservative

Can cause skin and lung irritation. Also toxic to the kidneys, nervous system, and liver, and repeated, long-term exposure can cause organ damage. Toxic effects can occur through inhalation, skin exposure, and ingestion.

Zero junk fillers

NO LURKING PARABENS JUST INSANELY EFFECTIVE INGREDIENTS.
