What is herbal skincare?

Herbal skin care is skincare made with natural ingredients that are gentle on the skin. Herbal skincare products contain scientifically validated herbal solutions that have been proven safe and effective in natural beauty herbal products. These plants have been used traditionally for their medicinal properties, and their safety and efficacy benefits make them a popular choice over synthetic chemicals. Herb-science products can be used for therapeutic infusion to treat skin conditions and natural beauty purposes to improve skin appearance.

Kapua Browning founded Honua Hawaiian Skincare in 2015 when the demand for her Hawaiian-crafted medicinal plants for skin care grew beyond her treatment room. Born and raised on O'ahu as an avid surfer and beach girl, Kapua began to notice sun damage and pigmentation in her complexion as early as her 20s. In an attempt to take care of her skin, she became passionate about herbal skin solutions and botanical ingredients. She began to train in aesthetics and learn about traditional Hawaiian healing, medicinal herbs, skin solutions and more. After a decade of experience as a licensed esthetician and extended training in skin care herbs and product development, Browning began the building blocks for her hand-crafted, luxury skincare brand, Honua Skincare.


The creation of Honua allowed Kapua to share her love for Hawaiian culture, botanical beauty, skin care formulations, and aesthetics with the world. Growing up around Hawaiian music, hula, language, and the Aloha spirit inspired her to infuse these therapeutic insights into her ultra-clean products. She aims to put "aloha," or love and compassion, into everything Honua, a radiant skincare brand.  


Honua is a family-owned botanical beauty brand with Kapua at the forefront. Her husband, Brandon, is equally as passionate about Hawaiian culture and has the drive to share it with the world. They have four children aged 5-18, raised in Hawaiian culturally based schools. Unfortunately, the family had to move away from Hawaii in 2014 due to the economic hardships that many Hawaiian families face. However, in June 2021, they moved back to Hawai'i permanently. Kapua has returned to the farms of Hawai'i and continues to help Honua to source and grow the best and most effective skincare ingredients for radiant skin and beauty.


Your natural skincare.


Mama Honua (Mother Earth) is the heart of Honua's company and where these botanicals are born. Their ethically made, ultra clean products are filled with Hawaiian botanical plant therapy magic, so they give credit to the true creator of this luminous skincare line.


Honua offers a new experience in conscious beauty and non-toxic skincare. Their herbal radiant skin therapy not only transforms skin but allows customers to experience a touch of Aloha everyday. From formulation to production, Honua Hawaiian Skincare incorporates the spirit of Aloha, and it shows in their natural anti aging skin care products. They share this special message inside every Honua box so that customers can also incorporate Aloha into their daily lives. The "Honua Glow" is contagious and is attributed to the daily care of the skin and soul!


 Honua's innovative, best cruelty-free skincare products combine traditional Hawaiian healing botanicals and skin care formulations with modern, green skincare technology. Focusing on the root cause of primary skin conditions, they have developed herbal solutions for radiant skin.


"La'au," or Hawaiian healing botanicals, are the reason Honua products can effectively treat the skin without the use of lab-created chemicals. Some of these superstars are, 'Olena, Noni, Alo Alo, Kukui, Kamani, Kalo, Wai Niu, 'Awa, and Laukahi. These skin-loving la'au are filled with vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and fatty acids and are some of the most potent anti-inflammatories and antioxidants available. Honua believes that some of the magic also lies in the soil where these plants are grown, so their skin care with natural ingredients is sourced from as many Hawai'i farms as possible.

A youth serum made with a unique blend of Hawaiian botanicals and enriched with Bakuchiol - a plant-derived retinol alternative. This is an excellent retin-a serum alternative. Designed for therapeutic integration to hydrate, smooth, brighten and tighten, this carefully curated blend will boost skin's immunity by providing the nutrients needed for youthful, best natural anti aging skin care. This unique antioxidant serum formula penetrates quickly into the skin delivering concentrated nutrition and leaving dewy skin fresh and glowing. Now available in 1oz and 2oz sizes!

This hydration face serum increases your glow factor as a new hydrating, antioxidant beauty booster. An anti-aging facial featuring red hibiscus, astaxanthin, and hyaluronic acid, this latest launch offers an instant boost coupled with long-term hydration.   


For the men after shave serum, the high end nā kāne does it all... protects the face from post-shaving inflammation & breakouts and helps to tighten enlarged pores. The therapeutic qualities repair sun-damaged skin and keep skin smooth, healthy & youthful. Your ultimate anti-aging and after-shave serum! Morning and evening, dispense a pearl-sized healing skin cream onto clean skin and massage gently all over the face. Nā kāne works well as an after-shave hydrating potion. Follow with 'ōlena oil or Māhealani Moonlit Glow Balm. We recommend the Malu protecting day cream during the daytime to achieve balanced moisture and sun protection.


Māhealani glow balm is the perfect addition to your winter skincare collection but will keep your skin glowing all year. While most of Honua's herb-science products soak in almost immediately to work on balancing skin's moisture at a deeper level, this one satisfies your craving for more dewy skin with deep surface hydration. It layers beautifully over the light and silky Aloha Youth Serum or the healing 'Olena beauty oil. Māhealani draws inspiration from the full moon, specifically the third night of the full moon. Among ancient Hawaiians, this special night was dedicated to sacred rituals. The ancestors used the moonlit glow of the Māhealani plant to ensure an abundant harvest, caring for their families. We created Māhealani to nourish your skin and highlight your natural glow. Like beautiful moonlight, a little goes a long way. You can use Māhealani at any time of day, but we love her best at night, following the Honua ritual, as her seductive scent and luxurious texture envelop skin and soul before you drift off to sleep.


face cleansing cream

This face cleansing cream cleanses and nourishes your skin & soul... Hawaiian cleansing salt and antioxidant-rich red hibiscus combine to create a gentle daily cleanser that will leave your skin feeling soft, smooth, and hydrated. Seaweed extract strengthens and renews the skin while accelerating natural skin repair. The Sakai cleansing face cream is excellent for all skin types - including yours! Now available in 2oz and 4oz sizes! This is a "you should treat yourself now" product!


The Malu sunscreen is completely palm-free, cruelty-free, vegan, and free of synthetic fragrances. This is the final step in your daily Honua self-care ritual and keeps your skin protected from the sun and daily environmental pollutants. Malu marries modern natural protectants with traditional Hawaiian ones and contains all reef-safe ingredients. Scents of jasmine merge with antioxidant Noni and nourishing Laukahi for a creamy, luxurious day cream that does not leave a white cast. We use non-nano zinc oxide, which is broad spectrum. A percentage of proceeds from Malu benefits sustainable coastlines in Hawaii, a non-profit that educates the community and keeps the oceans clean.

Their eco-friendly skincare products are filled with Hawaiian botanical magic, and they are dedicated to giving credit to the true creator of their skincare line – Mama Honua.
