At Kayvar.com, your happiness & shopping experience for the best Korean beauty products is our #1 priority and will always be.
KAYVAR, a 2-syllable word is pronounced Kay (the kay in okay) and Var (the var in varnish) and was thought of by Co-founders Shania Ng, Shantal Lim and Chanel Allison.
This, is Our Story.
With an initial team of 4 in 2016, co-founders Shania Ng & Chanel Allison led the team and went on a mission. The initial mission was not to find beauty products, to find out why Koreans looked different. Like many of us, if you're into Korean makeup, it's might have been because of this commercial featuring a Korean model with flawless skin that you've seen on the internet or TV, or maybe because you've personally visited Korea and have seen how their flawless skin can radiate even in the hottest time of the day.
Flawless skin, is not an exaggeration. Shania and the team were dumbfounded when they realised that there was something more to these Koreans and their flawless skin. It was these long stretches of Korean makeup brand shops in Seoul, the heart of South Korea. Imagine dozens and dozens of stores with different makeup brands all clustered together. It was like makeup-heaven. Or, the closest thing to Heaven if you have a complete makeup obsession.
The initial mission was to find out why Koreans look fabulous. Then the team found the makeup-heaven. I'm sure we all know what happened next.
[Just in case you didn't guess it, the team stayed in Korea for a whopping one month. Not just shopping, but learning about the 1001 things about Korean Beauty. What they learnt was all noted down but in small little notebooks. But since digitalisation, we've made them easy for anyone to learn about Korean beauty. You can find out more on our blog here. ]
Fast forward today in 2018, Kayvar.com is backed by a whole team of passionate beauty experts that only curate the best from Korea. We have a team who still visits South Korea once a month, just to make sure that we don't miss out on the newest products so you'll always get to try the best of Korean Beauty.
