About iKOU

Born from the journey of healing a stressed skin condition, founders Naomi & Paul Whitfeld’s quest for wellness led to a passion for combining innovative, botanical skincare with conscious home spa rituals to treat skin, mind and body as a whole.

Their inspiration for iKOU came in 2007 after a blissful spa treatment in Ubud, Bali that ended in a flower petal bath. “This is the moment that touched our lives forever and inspired us to create a brand that encourages daily rituals to bring the spa holiday feel into everyday life, creating moments to rest, relax, restore.”

From humble beginnings making products in their Blue Mountains kitchen, iKOU has flourished to become the international brand it is today, synonymous with a fusion of modern, organic skincare and ancient global spa rituals that transform the way you feel.


The iKOU ethos was founded on the philosophy that skin is an outward reflection of health and emotions. We believe you get the best results when you treat body and mind as a whole, creating rituals to de-stress and relax, and nourish your skin with modern organic skincare.
