Like many great companies, Kona Tanning Company began in the kitchen.
In 2005, an enterprising young couple named Katie and Kenny returned home from their Hawaiian wedding, tired of striking out with tanning beds and smelly spray tans that didn’t complement Katie’s fair skin and freckles.
They decided to customize a formula just for her, and then went one step further by adding skin nourishing ingredients and extracts.
Out of personal necessity, Katie and Kenny have single-handedly raised the bar for sunless skincare, merging health, beauty and glamour into one perfectly bronzed package, called a Kona Tan.
They have developed their own products and techniques, fine-tuning Katie’s talents under some of the world’s top makeup artists, supermodels, and fitness legends.
During their journey they have also become advocates for sunless beauty and gentle skincare, and plan to never quit creating new products to enhance natural youth, without causing harm to the body.
