Backstory: According to Founder Angela Jia Kim, New York, “Savor Beauty’s mission is to simplify Korean beauty rituals and offer holistic organic skincare that works. Our promise is products made with certified organic, natural or plant-based ingredients; locally handcrafted in New York in small batches; Leaping Bunny-certified, cruelty-free and full of the good stuff, none of the toxins.” Savor Beauty is also woman-led and operated.
“I wanted to incorporate the Korean beauty rituals that I grew up with,” said Kim. “But as a busy mom and wife living the gorgeous chaos of New York City, I needed flawless skin in a New York minute. And it must be organic and it must work.”
Why We’re Watching: The Savor Spas offer holistic facials, massages, and treatments using its in-house collection.
“Our estheticians and therapists are trained extensively to meet the Savor Beauty Standard of unparalleled five-star care for beautiful mul-gwang [water glowing] skin,” Kim told Happi. “We empower women by teaching them self-care rituals.”
What’s Next: Savor Beauty is partnering with women-owned spas and esthetician-entrepreneurs to offer clean facials, back bar and retail products to clean up the beauty around the world, one face at a time.
