About the Founder

Kapua Browning founded Honua Hawaiian Skincare in 2015, when the demand for her Hawaiian crafted products grew beyond her treatment room.  The creation of Honua allowed her to share her love for Hawaiian culture, botanicals and aesthetics with the world.

Kapua was born and raised on Oahu as an avid surfer and beach bum. After noticing sun damage and pigmentation in her early 20’s, she became passionate about studying skin care which led to her career as an esthetician.

It was only natural that Kapua found her way back to her roots to blend traditional Hawaiian healing practices and modern technology to formulate a hand-crafted skincare line made with ALOHA.
