Kenna's Story: My journey to healthy, glowing skin

I first began experimenting with ingredients and skincare formulations as a teenager searching for a natural solution for acne and dry and sensitive problem skin.

My search continued as a biochemistry major at the University of Guelph and ultimately led to breadfruit, grown in the tropics and incredibly rich in unique and powerful phytochemicals with antioxidant, soothing and protective benefits for the skin. The compounds scavenge free radicals that damage and age skin, provide anti-inflammatory and UVB-protective properties and replenish the skin’s natural protective barrier for a glowing complexion.

I developed a process to extract the active compounds from breadfruit flowers and formulated a cleanser, serum and moisturizer for a simple, all natural three-step skincare routine. All Altilis Beauty products, launched December 2017, are made with unique and powerful skin rejuvenating phytochemicals extracted from breadfruit (Artocarpus altilis) flowers, sourced directly from microfarmers in Samoa, where breadfruit grows in abundance. The products also feature other natural, beneficial ingredients like Gotu Kola, Honeybush, Aloe Vera and Trans-Resveratrol for additional rejuvenating effects.

Breadfruit has never been used before in skin care and it’s really rewarding hearing customers’ stories about the difference it is making. It’s like a tropical vacation for your skin. Try it - I’d love know how it works for you!
