REINVENTING FOOD AS SKINCARE SINCE 2014
From Do-It-Yourself to DONE-FOR-YOU
We’ve got no secrets – we take the best DIY recipes passed down for generations, add our own improvements to them, and do the dirty work for you. Have confidence in your Katfood product, knowing it’s been freshly handmade for you with as much care and attention as if you made it in your kitchen yourself.
The Katfood way is nothing fancy, just never any synthetic chemicals, filler ingredients, artificial preservatives, alcohol, or fragrances.
From Our Kitchen to Your Skin
We use only ingredients you recognise and trust enough to eat in our products. As your skin absorbs into your body what you put on it, we believe that skincare should not be formulated any differently from food. We keep our ingredient lists short so you get more of the good stuff.
All our ingredients are raw, natural, unprocessed and unrefined for a beautiful, healthy you, outside and in.
