Kate Porter, originally from the North of England, lives in Hertfordshire with her husband and their two children. Before creating Harborist she'd spent 14 years as an artist in the film industry, helping to create everything from death-eaters to an Oscar winning AI robot.
Sensitive, allergy prone skin affects her mum, her children and herself. The idea for Harborist was born out of frustration that the brands she most wanted to use were often the least suitable.
With reports of sensitive skin as high as 40% worldwide, it seemed there should be more choice - products that felt good to buy and use, which would acknowledge the problems people like herself can have. By understanding the problem, she could make things better, all with the mission of creating a better experience for your sensitive skin.
