What makes us women?

What distinctive experiences do we collectively share as women? At Knours, we believe womanhood is defined by each individual’s personal struggles & successes with their body. The most impactful of those experiences being the 3 M’s: menstruation, maternity, and menopause, especially on
the skin.

Founder, Julie Chon

Julie spent 15 years working in hospitals as a physical therapist, helping patients get back on their feet both literally and figuratively. She quickly realized that there were obstacles her female patients faced because of the 3 M’s: menstruation, maternity, & menopause.

After she became a mother of two, Julie recognized the importance of using clean & safe personal products for her own hormonal wellness. She ventually joined hands with her husband to become pioneers in the growing K-Beauty phenomenon as exclusive distributors of Korea’s top beauty brands.

Many years later, as Julie struggled with the emotional & physical changes symptomatic of menopause, and the effects they were having on her life, she was reminded of the patients she met during her time as a PT. As she researched ways to alleviate the symptoms of menopause in her everyday, and especially on her skin, she was surprised to discover the existence of EDC’s (endocrine-disrupting chemicals) in many widely known skincare products.

The Birth Of Knours.

Using her knowledge & experiences, Julie set out to create safe skincare that didn’t pose a concern for toxicity or triggering hormonal shifts during the 3 M’s. She collaborated with dermatologists & herbalists to conduct extensive research and formulate the cleanest, most effective products for women with hormone-related skin concerns.

And in 2018, Knours was born.
