Katari started out as a dream to connect the world. I’ve traveled the world for most of my life, and met some truly amazing people. I learned about their cultures, their histories, and their struggle to continue their ancestors’ work in a new world of technology. When I settled down, I knew I wanted to share their work. I founded Katari with a team of like-minded artisans, non-profits, and families from the Mediterranean, to sell their time-tested skin-care products. These recipes have been handed down for generations, and are made the same way today.
I personally source every product, traveling to the Mediterranean often and meeting with each and every artisan. I learn their stories, meet their families, and immerse myself in their communities. I make sure that every product only uses a single natural, organic ingredient, that can be found right there in the Mediterranean. From Tunisian Green Clay in our Argil masque, that is hand-picked in the Atlas Mountains of Tunisia, to the Barie serum, made from the seeds of the red delicious fruit that grows on the top of prickly pear cacti, I ensure each product is of the highest quality. There are no preservatives. No additives.
I buy all of our products directly from the artisans and from the non-profit organizations who employ women in the isolated Tunisian villages. There is no third party, no corporate meetings or overheard. It is just my team and I, and the artisans. I want to keep it this way - intimate, flexible, and responsible.
Not only are we buying our products directly from these artisans, employing them and their families, we also donate 5% of all sales directly back into their communities. We buy food, equipment, and any other necessary supplies they need. This kind of charity is more impactful, more immediate relief for those in need. It is help where it is needed most. We will continue to help one person, one family, one community, at a time.
