Potent blend of hyaluronic acid, peptides and high-performance native fruit and flower extracts to stimulate collagen and elastin, plump, firm and enhance skin luminosity and vitality.
Hyaluronic acid – We use a high content of newly developed form of hyaluronic acid that has both a high and low molecular weight. The low molecular weight is less commonly found on the market, it is a smaller particle and therefore penetrates the skin more effectively, yet it still has the same capacity to hold and bind the same amount of water as the high molecular weight form. Hyaluronic acids claim to fame is that it has the capacity to hold 1,000 times its weight in water, therefore plumping the skin. Our body naturally produces it, but the productions starts to decrease in our early 20’s. The results of its diminished production become visible around age 30. iKOU Hyaluronic Acid is plant sourced and suitable for vegans.

From the sanctuary of the Blue Mountains, an Australian couple spreads the relaxed holiday vibe throughout everyday life. iKOU Founders Naomi and Paul Whitfeld have created a brand that inspires health and happiness.
Both keen travellers, their global experiences have influenced the brand’s culture in many ways. Paul and Naomi’s travels created an awareness of the impact that business has on the environment, people and animals. This prompted them to hand make their own product, so that manufacture would fit iKOU’s philosophy, and that they would know exactly what ingredients were utilised. They researched ethical options for production, purchasing of ingredients for their products, as well as fair trade and supporting charity groups.
