The Brand Bio

Founder:

Ypatia Mitsatsou

Established:

2018

Headquarters:

Greece

Country of Manufacture:

Greece

Inspired by the ancient Greek word for the heart, κέᾰρ® (Kear) brings back to life timeless natural skincare. Ancient cosmetic formulas are now shaped into potent and unique products that meet the needs of today’s fast-paced daily personal care routine. The power of Greek elements, ingredients, and scents blend in harmony to create clean skincare that is safe, multipurpose, non-toxic, cruelty-free, and fit for all. Kear's skincare line includes thirteen-star products, all produced locally in Greece according to tradition and to EU regulations, in certified labs that have undergone all tests.

Founed by Ypatia Mitsatsou, Kear utilises and adapts ancient cosmetic formulas passed down from Greek scholars and philosophers to create their conscientious award-winning products. The brand reinvents the beauty heritage of ancient Greece and, as a result, is already acknowledged for its excellence in quality skincare by preeminent organisations worldwide.
