About Us

Our Story

We are Kacadas (Kuh-sah-das) a natural, organic and vegan beauty boutique - offering carefully curated products for hair, skin and body.

After leaving a 25+ year management consulting career behind to begin my second act, I created Kacadas in 2013.  I am a wife/mother who LOVES researching, testing and reviewing natural beauty products.  Hand-in-hand with my husband, who equally enjoys being the beneficiary of said research – we have created a company designed to be the premier resource for people of every skin type, ethnicity, hair texture and age to purchase the purest green beauty products available. 

We believe our passion and enthusiasm are contagious, and armed with knowledge gained from both personal experience and research, we are excited to educate others about the chemical dangers inherent in many of today’s commonly used beauty and personal care products.  At the same time, we are happy to be able to provide alternative products that are not only safe and eco-friendly, but supremely effective at cleansing, moisturizing and protecting your hair, body and skin – and, they smell great!

Our Mission

The mission of Kacadas is three fold:

  • To educate people about the importance of making healthier personal care choices for themselves, their families and the environment - so that they can feel good about looking good;
  • To seek out companies committed to providing the highest quality natural, certified organic, vegan and eco-friendly personal care products; and
  • To be the main source for the smart shopper’s natural, organic and vegan beauty needs. 

Our Passion

Kacadas is devoted to making sure that as our business grows we remain faithful to our responsibility to “pay it forward”.  In addition to volunteering with several organizations in our local community, we gladly give back 1% of our profits to Charity Water, an organization that “water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries".

Our Products

Before a product makes it into our inventory, we scrupulously check it in terms of ingredients, origin, sustainability and effectiveness. Only products that meet our strict criteria and are proven in their ability to cleanse, nourish and protect your skin, body and hair are selected for our store.

To help customers make an informed choice, we disclose the ingredient list for each product we sell so you know exactly what's inside. In a nutshell, we favor plant-based, hand crafted, biodegradable products that contain:

  • No parabens
  • No petroleum / mineral oil
  • No phthalates
  • No sulphates
  • No pesticides or herbicide residues
  • No formaldehyde
  • No coal tar
  • No DEA/MEA/TEA
  • No artificial fragrances or colors
  • No animal testing or cruelty during product development

Is everything in our store certified organic or vegan? No; however, every ingredient and every product is assessed so that we can provide the widest possible choice and when non-organic or non-vegan ingredients are present, we ensure that performance and benefits outweigh the downsides.  Products in the certified organic and/or vegan categories are highlighted as such.
