Joy in Simplicity

Every person is on their own unique journey towards healthier, happier skin. Yet, the rewards are universal – extending far beyond the surface – offering physical, mental and emotional well-being.

Kanso lets you tune out the noise and tune into your skin’s needs, guiding you towards a deeper understanding of what truly matters to you. Simple yet profound, Kanso advocates for intentional living as the foundation of healthy, radiant skin.

More than just skincare – it's a lifestyle that respects the interconnectedness of body, mind and soul. Because when you're free from distractions and aligned with your true self, you can focus wholeheartedly on discovering your own joy.

Our Brand Philosophy

Skin Health is a Journey

We believe in celebrating everyone on their skin health journey, no matter who you are.

The skin is like a canvas, each mark and blemish telling its own unique story. From moments of irritation to times of hypersensitivity, intolerance, or reactivity, your skin reflects the chapters of your life. Whether it's the stress of daily life or the changing seasons, we stand by your side through all the ebbs and flows.

We understand the struggles you face; we’re here to celebrate all your wins, big or small, and admire your strength on this journey to find your balance. We take pride in being part of this incredible community, which inspires us to look beyond sensitive skin as we strive towards healthy skin.

Our Formulation Approach

Founders' Story

Hello there! We’re Joanne & Deena, the duo behind Kansoskin. Our journey didn’t start with skincare – Joanne globetrotted around the world as cabin crew with Singapore Airlines, while Deena spent over a decade deep in the world of banking on Wall Street.

Growing up, both of us watched our siblings struggle with sensitive skin and eczema. We know firsthand what bad skin days are like – the flare-ups, the red patches, the discomfort, the silent hope that no one else notices. We’ve seen countless doctors prescribe topical medication and suggest dietary changes, but it always felt like something was missing.

So Joanne became a certified skincare formulator and crossed paths with Deena. Together, we realised the importance of treating skin as part of a bigger picture – the connection between skin, body and soul. This concept is not new, it’s recognised by ancient traditions like Greek philosophy, traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda.

Drawing from our rich Asian heritage, we believe that happier, healthier skin starts with balance – physically, mentally and emotionally. With Kanso, we tune out the noise to focus on what truly matters. Skin health is a journey, and for us, better is always better than more.

"Real skin has texture, pores and imperfections. Progress takes time. Have patience and trust the process. The goal is healthy, not perfect skin.”
