Letter from Grace

One of the beautiful things we love here at Australian Organic is meeting the founders behind the brands we certify and hearing their stories about why they do what they do. It’s no secret that gaining certified organic status is a challenge and it takes passion and determination to see the process through.

And, wow does Grace Culhaci, founder and CEO of zk’in certified organic skincare have an inspiring story to share…


Like many women, I have faced a few challenges in my life. While these challenges are sometimes hard, they help define us women in a positive and beautiful way. Two of the challenges I faced have positively changed my life forever.

After developing a skin condition during my first pregnancy, I was inspired to take a closer look at the ingredients used in personal care products. In one evening I removed every product from my bathroom that contained a toxic ingredient. That one evening changed my life forever.

I discovered that products that claimed to be organic, natural or dermatologically tested frequently contained known carcinogens and toxic ingredients. This lack of honesty was deeply saddening, but the inspiration I needed to make a difference, not just for my skin but for the skin of the many other women who had placed their trust in the products they bought. I learned to create certified organic skincare products and, through their use, my skin condition cleared.

During my second pregnancy I was diagnosed with an inoperable tumour on my optic nerve. This condition, undiagnosed for many years had affected the vision in my right eye. While troubling, this hurdle focused my attention on healthy living with an organic lifestyle and a B17 vitamin nutritional program. Through the honestly beautiful products we have created and healthy, organic living I now live an honestly beautiful, pain-free life.

But more important than my story, is that the products we have created are clinically proven to work for all types of skin. There is no need for needles, toxins, parabens and sulphates to look and feel amazing. zk’in is certified organic, cruelty free, vegan and 100% honest with clinically proven, beautiful results. We call this honest beauty.

Every woman is faced with challenges. Deciding which products to trust to put on our skin should not be one of those challenges.

I hope that you too can enjoy the honest beauty that I enjoy through the certified organic and clinically-proven benefits of zk’in.

Yours in beauty,
