Lucid Communications welcomes Vancouver skincare brand, Kōv, to their lifestyle client roster

Lucid Communications is proud to welcome Kōv, the brand new Vancouver-based skin and body care line, to their client roster. Kōv's mission is simple— to create responsibly sourced, completely natural, and totally amazing products. Their streamlined collection features an incredible hand wash with a silky-soft lather, as well as a velvety-smooth moisturizing lotion filled with nutrient-dense organic oils and botanicals. Both product formulas have been thoughtfully developed to deeply nourish your skin, all while putting the environment first. No additives, no artificial scents, and no waste. 

At Kōv, they know that scent has the power to transport you. It can remind you of someone special, a great trip you took, or your favourite sunny knoll. While the environment remains the brand's top priority, they also care deeply about the sensory experience of their products. Kōv has developed an incredible signature scent that transports you to a west coast Canadian forest. Think rainy walks, a strong ocean breeze, and juicy spruce trees. It's subtle and fresh, yet totally invigorating. 

          


You might be wondering how Kōv maintains their commitment to the natural environment while also creating products that are lavish and incredibly effective. The secret ingredient? Kelp!

What grows two feet a day, is a floating party island for sea otters, and is a superhero for your skin and climate change? Meet giant kelp— an essential ingredient in Kōv's products. Kelp grows in a harsh marine environment, and because it is constantly exposed to sun and extreme temperatures, it produces compounds to protect itself against environmental stresses. These compounds make giant kelp a potent bioactive (and totally natural) ingredient for skin protection and care. Keeping the environment at the forefront of all they do, Kōv's giant kelp is wild harvested only once a year by a small artisan producer. 

In addition to using only small batch, organic, and all-natural ingredients, Kōv extends their sustainable efforts to their packaging. Their product and shipping boxes are made from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified cardboard and printed with water soluble inks— meaning they are fully compostable. Their products are also packaged in beautiful glass bottles that are intended to be refilled with their convenient refill pouches, and enjoyed for years to come. Bonus: the stunning blue bottles look amazing on any countertop or shelf! 

Kōv is a proud to partner of 1% for the Planet, which works to conserve habitats for marine life, and Raincoast Conservation, which protects the lands, waters, and wildlife of coastal British Columbia. 

Kōv can be purchased online and shipped within Canada and the US, or purchased from their various stockists

Offering a simple yet lavish collection, Kōv's products are thoughtfully designed to deeply nourish the skin while keeping the environment as their #1 priority. Their signature scent is reminiscent of the Pacific Coast's ocean breeze and fragrant spruce trees, instantly refreshing and invigorating the senses.

All of the Kōv's ingredients are completely organic, natural, and thoughtfully-sourced, allowing them to tap into the power of naturally-derived formulations.

Kōv was founded by Alicia Munro and her partner/Co-Founder, Miguel Quezada, in 2020. Alicia had been working in operations management, and Miguel had been working in Vancouver's restaurant scene. Both Alicia and Miguel were captivated by the power of local, high-quality, and sustainable materials and ingredients. As the pair were avid skincare users, they began to dive into the potentially harmful ingredients in their favourite products. After discovering that the majority of ingredients used were endocrine disruptors, and that only 9% of plastics had ever been recycled, they knew that there must be a better way. Alicia and Miguel began experimenting at home, creating products inspired by the wonder of the Pacific coast. Shortly thereafter, Kōv was born. 

Since the start, Kōv has made it their mission to create effective products that are good for both people and the planet. Beyond sourcing sustainably-harvested and natural ingredients, Kōv ensures that their shipping materials and packaging are completely compostable. Their beautifully-scented products come in chic blue bottles that look great on any countertop or shelf, and can be topped up using their refill pouches to further reduce waste.

Kōv is a proud to partner of 1% for the Planet, which works to conserve habitats for marine life, and Raincoast Conservation, which protects the lands, waters, and wildlife of coastal British Columbia.
