Our Story

 

You can have your KAIKE and eat it too!  Well, your skin can.  Same thing, right?

Founded in 2015 by Keli Smith, KAIKE (pronounced ‘cake’), is a fun, plant-based beauty and skincare brand.  We believe in natural, vegan, and preservative-free products that encourage a celebration of our natural beauty. 

Born from the idea that less is more, we create fun, multi-purpose products with only the purest ingredients to solve a variety of beauty + skincare issues.  We get all giddy inside for healthy, nourished skin, especially when our skincare routine is enjoyable!  Just like the decadence and happiness found in enjoying a piece of cake, we believe in products with an ingredients list that reads like a delicious recipe good enough for your skin to eat.  Cake is usually found at the center of every celebration, and what better way to cultivate and celebrate healthy skin than with a #pieceofkaike?

Handcrafted in small batches in the northern suburbs of Chicago, our mission is centered around good, clean, fun.  We believe in creating products that are GOOD for you, in using only CLEAN all-natural + vegan ingredients, and in finding every opportunity to inject a little FUN into our skincare routine and lifestyle.
