Kapua Browning, Founder of Honua Skincare has a family lineage known for protecting the land, water and farmlands of Hawai’i. Growing up, Kapua immersed herself in the study of Hawaiian botanical skincare, becoming a licensed esthetician and instructor. She and her husband Brandon, a Hawaiian Traditional Medicine practitioner, began crafting customized oils and tinctures for their clients using native Hawaiian botanicals.
In 2016, they birthed a Hawaiian skincare brand with only one given name: Honua. Through Honua, which means ‘earth’ in Hawaiian, Kapua channels her passion for expert-formulated skincare that incorporates native plants and farming rituals of Hawai’i, while giving back a portion of her profits to three organizations in her homeland: 'Āina Provide, Hoa 'Āina O Mākaha and the Hawaiian Legacy Reforestation Initiative.
The Box Review
"See New Skincare sent me heaven in a box this month. Honua is such a great brand and all of these formulas were fantastic. All of the products work in such a gorgeous harmony with each other for a complete routine, day to night. I found this curation absolutely lovely as someone already familiar with the brand, but I can only imagine what subscribers new to this Hawaiian treasure will think once they try these formulas out for the first time."
