About Us

Founded by Kelsey Kawamata, Ocean Skin is a small online Korean skincare shop based out of Honolulu, Hawaii.  We believe people are the most beautiful when they feel confident, happy and healthy. 

We combed through and researched hundreds of products to bring you the products with the best benefits.  We hope to make Korean skincare more accessible and affordable for all skin types across the U.S.

As an authorized distributor for all the brands we carry, you can feel confident adding our products into your skincare journey!


A Letter from Kelsey:

First and foremost, I would like to thank you for being here at Ocean Skin and supporting my small business.  Opening Ocean Skin has been a dream come true and I am so excited and happy to continue putting my everything into this shop.  None of this would be possible without my family, friends and most importantly- You.  Thank you again for all your support and shopping small! 💖

I struggled with eczema for as long as I can remember.  During the end of high school and throughout college, my eczema, dryness and sensitivity to products had increasingly become worse.  I soon began to realized just how much it affected my confidence.  When my skin was at it's worse, I discovered the Korean skincare regimen.  That moment was a turning point in many aspects of my life.  Not only did the products not irritate my sensitive and dry skin, but aided it in improving!  My confidence improved and I became obsessed with researching different Korean products and their ingredients.  I knew this was something I wanted to make into a career.

I hope to connect people in all skin situations (whether that's improving, maintaining or just looking to try new products) with products that will help reach their skin goals & bring them confidence, just as it did for me.

Love always,

Kelsey Kawamata
