Our Story

If you can't find a way, create one

KIVENS is a portuguese company created in 2020, dedicated to bringing you effective and caring products, specially designed for people with sensitive skin. It took us 5 years to carve this new path and to bring you the very best innovative and effective products.


Inspired by the founder’s personal experience, we have built a multidisciplinary team, formed by a chemical engineer, a chemist, and a pharmacy technician. This team started developing prototype formulations which resulted in high-performance products that respect and optimize skin’s natural mechanisms.


We want to help you feel comfortable in your own skin, allowing you to walk confidently. We stand for unique formulas based on high quality ingredients that are always dermatologically tested.


KIVENS is about quality and ingredient integrity, ‘less-but-better’ is our ultimate goal.
