For centuries, native Hawaiians have practiced the art of la'au lapa'au, a holistic approach to healing and wellness that uses native plants and minerals to address minor and major medical conditions. Honua harnesses the unique power of these same healing botanicals in every product we create with love.
Kapua Browning founded Honua Hawaiian Skincare in 2015, when the demand for her Hawaiian crafted products grew beyond her treatment room. Born and raised on O‘ahu as an avid surfer and beach girl, Kapua began to notice sun damage and pigmentation in her own complexion as early as her 20s. In an attempt to take care of her skin, she became passionate about beauty and began to train in aesthetics and learn about traditional Hawaiian healing and medicinal herbs. After a decade of experience as a licensed esthetician, and extended training in herbalism and product development, Browning began her own hand-crafted skincare collection, Honua Skincare.
