Our story

Kate Porter

Originally from the North of England, I now live in Hertfordshire with my husband and our two children. Before creating Harborist I'd spent 14 years as an artist in the film industry, helping to create everything from death-eaters to an Oscar winning AI robot.


Sensitive, allergy prone skin affects my mum, my children and myself. The idea for Harborist was bourne out of frustration that the luxurious, ethical brands I enjoyed using were often the least suitable, while the best were bland and utilitarian.


With reports of sensitive skin as high as 40% worldwide¹, it seemed there should be more choice; products that felt good to buy and put on the skin, which would acknowledge the problems people like myself can have. By understanding the problem, we could make things better.
