Inspired by her mother and heritage, founder Angela Jia Kim created Savor Beauty, natural skincare inspired by Korean beauty rituals.
"I wanted to incorporate the teachings that I grew up with. But as a busy mom living the gorgeous chaos of NYC, I wanted flawless skin in a New York minute."
The Savor Beauty Timeline
A former classical pianist, Angela Jia Kim's life changed minutes before a concert. She applied a "natural" lotion, and broke out in hives in front of hundreds of people. She later learned the lotion was loaded with chemical fillers and preservatives.
She researched, sourced organic ingredients, and created her own products. She began testing her creams on friends + family. They instantly fell in love and wanted more.
Start of an Adventure
After giving birth to her daughter Sienna in 2009, Angela began selling her skincare in a holiday pop-up shop in NYC's Bryant Park and nurtured relationships with her first clients (all while breastfeeding!)
Angela opened her first boutique spa in NYC's West Village in 2011, and she hired estheticians who used the products in the facials. 100% self-funded, she built the brand with the philosophy that the customers were her investors.
Made by Women in New York
As the brand started to grow, Angela opened the Beauty Kitchen in New York, and launched the "Dollars & Scents Program." This initiative, inspired by her mom, gave jobs to women transitioning back to work.
Loved by Estheticians
Angela opened her third boutique spa in NYC's Upper West Side. As more estheticians learned of locally-made natural skincare, Savor Beauty Pro was created to offer wholesale + support for women-owned spas nationwide.
Self-Care Every Day
In 2017, Savor Beauty was re-branded by Nobi Kashiwagi, Vogue Art Director, to offer the simplified numbered skincare system. Founded, led, and made by women, Savor Beauty is proud to partner with women-owned spas nationwide.
