After one of the most difficult years in living memory, it’s fair to assume a mother of three-slash-entrepreneur-slash-expat might not be feeling her best
“I just feel really proud of where we're at,” Kerr tells me through a sip of celery juice. “That we were able to really pave the way for so many people that are interested in clean beauty.”
Since its very small launch back in 2009, all of KORA Organics’ products have not only been ‘clean’ but certified organic—a rarity in the beauty industry then and now.
“Certified organic wasn't just because I wanted to use healthy products, I wanted to use really powerful, highly effective, healthy products,” she says.
Initially, Kerr had to ask a chemist if creating such a line was even possible, as she had never come across certified organic products as a consumer.
“I worked with organic chemists for three years developing KORA, and then we just launched at the end of 2009 in Australia. At the time, I was working crazy hours and travelling around the world—it was like a hobby project.”
