In the rapidly evolving world of cosmetics, where creativity and ambitions converge, a name that stands out as the epitome of resolve and self-empowerment is Kiran Sandhu, the founder of Skin Konnection, a holistic skincare brand. Donning multiple hats, a beautician, an author, and a fashion designer, Kiran is a true visionary in every essence, embodying strength and empowerment in every facet of her journey.
From a young age, Kiran’s fascination with the world of beauty had no bounds. She would lose herself in the pages of beauty magazines, savouring every article and beauty secret they held. Post graduation, Kiran’s relentless curiosity led her to pursue a diploma course under the mentorship of the “Queen of Herbal,” Shahnaz Hussein, a luminary in the field.
Kiran’s enduring passion for the beauty industry and her extensive studies in the field naturally culminated in her desire to create her own skincare brand. Inspired and resolute, she boldly envisioned the creation of her very own skincare brand, a testament to her unwavering determination. Being a military child, the resilience and discipline ingrained in her now served as her companions on this exciting new journey.
Driven by the determination to enhance her expertise, Kiran made the choice to enrol in a prestigious cosmetology course in Mumbai. Each lesson and hands-on experience in this program allowed her to delve deeper into the intricacies of the industry, further fueling her fervour for crafting exceptional skincare solutions. After her marriage, Kiran’s aspirations, however, took a temporary backseat as family responsibilities and her children became her first priority.
As time flowed by, and with her children grown into independent individuals, Kiran found herself consumed by a passionate yearning to rekindle her entrepreneurial ambitions. The support of her loved ones granted her the liberty to make decisions without the burden of stress, allowing her to pursue her aspirations with a resurgent and resolute spirit. And that’s how Skin Konnection came into existence.
Embarking on the journey of establishing a cosmetics business demands meticulous research and careful planning. Kiran’s commitment to these principles formed a strong foundation for the creation of Skin Konnection. Drawing from her wealth of personal experiences and expertise, she made a strategic choice to develop an ayurvedic face serum as the flagship product for Skin Konnection.
Comprising pure Ayurvedic herbs such as tulsi, mulethi, harida, neem, aloe vera, gotu kola, Shaimali, and more, known for their profound effects on the skin, this serum addresses a multitude of common skin concerns. From pigmentation and fine lines to wrinkles, dark circles, blemishes, and breakouts, it provides holistic solutions. The serum’s hydrating properties nourish the skin, leaving it rejuvenated and revitalised. Skin Konnection, under Kiran’s dedicated stewardship, brings this transformative product to the world.
The incorporation of Kumkumadi Tailam and Kashmiri Kesar, celebrated for their potent antibacterial and antioxidant properties in the serum, makes it stand out from the competition. These ingredients are renowned for their ability to improve skin tone, facilitate cell repair, boost blood circulation, and impart a radiant complexion.
Amidst the plethora of products available in the market, Kiran asserts that her product stands out due to the dedication they have put in and the use of genuine, high-quality ingredients. She firmly believes that it will carve a distinct niche for itself and earn its place among the competition.
When asked to define success, Kiran shares, “Success is not solely measured by the profits accumulated over the course of a financial year. To me, it’s about the lasting impact we have on others, and it’s a continuous journey.” She proudly notes that her brand, “Skin Konnection,” has already garnered two prestigious awards.
Beyond her work with Skin Konnection, Kiran also oversees a boutique named “Kiran Kreation.” Additionally, she’s the author of the informative book titled “Customise Your Beauty Now.”
When discussing her future plans for the company, Kiran reflects, “I’ve observed numerous companies that started on a good note but, over time, compromised their standards for commercial success and profits. Our company is committed to maintaining customer-friendly pricing while upholding the authenticity of our ingredients. In the coming five years, I envision Skin Konnection becoming a cherished household name, present in every home.”
