This pH-balancing essence renews the skin's vitality and supports a healthy microbiome.

Papaya and Pumpkin Seed enzymes promote skin renewal to smooth skin while optimizing pH levels. Turmeric and Licorice Root are rich in amino acids and have purifying properties that calm skin and defend against environmental stressors while Wild Cherry Bark, rich in antioxidants and polyphenols, help tone skin.

The principles of nutritional biochemistry applied to skin care.

As we know, the fruits and vegetables we eat every day work in synergy with our body to heal us. We take these similar principles and apply them to our skincare to support the skin's natural healing cycle and increase the effectiveness of every Kat Burki formula.


Kat Burki , CEO and Founder

Our formulas are developed by a founding team that leverages three decades of research in health and nutrition


Kat identified three primary healing principles from Nutritional Biochemistry and applied these to a line of quality, efficacious products for the body’s largest organ - the skin. She works with the industry’s leading formulators to create products with complete ingredient synergy that reduce inflammation and optimize absorption for maximum health and healing of the skin.


After graduating Undergraduate studying Nutrition, Kat Burki received her Juris Doctorate in Healthcare Law.  To focus her career on Policy and Disease Management, she earned an additional Masters degree, studying Epidemiology.  Creating every product herself, she has revolutionized the view of skincare with her Nutritional Biochemistry approach to formulations.


Kat Burki Skincare is the culmination of over 10 years of research into nutritional biochemistry. Every formula is based on award winning research and is backed by clinical studies.


Where others focus on a hero ingredient, we look to the whole delivery system of healing, integrating the science of what we put in our bodies with the science of what we put on it.

Though each formula targets specific skin concerns, all Kat Burki solutions share three common goals: to maximize ingredient synergy (In other words: every ingredient supports the other), to suppress inflammation, and to optimize absorption to ensure the most effective delivery of the formula for your most radiant, rejuvenated, healthy skin yet.

    Love this for under Vitamin C cream

    I use this under the vitamin C cream every other night, and I really like it. It helps keep my skin soft.

    Fewer breakouts, happier neck

    This is a light, cucumber-y essence that feels good right after my toner. It's moisturizing without being heavy. I don't have totally clear skin, but I do have fewer breakouts than before. This is also the only thing I've tried that my neck actually likes.

    Great into to the KB Brand

    If you have been thinking of trying something from KB I would start with this beautiful essence! It tones and adds radiance to the skin, as well as light hydration. I use it every morning after cleansing and before serums by massaging a couple of pumps into my skin. Love love love how juicy and plump it makes my skin look. Also, the packaging is a beautiful frosted glass with a metal cap.
