Kenko Chat: Tailor with Sara Quilter

Tailor Skincare Products -Tailor Skincare

Welcome back to our monthly Kenko Chat!

Skin care is never an outdated topic - especially now that the cold winter weather has arrived. Our special guest today is a skin care expert and the founder of a boutique natural skin care company in Wellington, New Zealand.

Let’s meet Sara Quilter - founder and CEO of Tailor!

Sara’s skin care story began when she discovered the benefits raw and natural ingredients have for the body, particularly our skin, which is our largest organ. Keen to know more, she began researching and making her own natural skin care products in her father’s shed.

Harnessing her dedication and passion for skin, she created Tailor Masque and eight other natural products for all skin types, which are now loved worldwide.

Tailor’s products are all made with high-quality natural ingredients and environmentally friendly materials, with animal cruelty-free principles driving everything. You can learn more about Sara and Tailor’s products at:

Sara is here to talk with us about natural skin care, share her tips on creating a healthy and beautiful skin care regimen and also let us know what she thinks of matcha!

Q: Can you tell us about yourself and your blog?

Sara Quilter, founder and CEO of Tailor Skincare

I’m Sara and I have a boutique skin care business called Tailor. Natural skincare is important to me because the skin is the body’s largest organ and it needs nutrients just like the rest of your body to be healthy. In my blog I take a holistic perspective where a healthy diet, regular exercise (yoga for me), lifestyle and natural skincare are the best way to achieve healthy skin.

Q: What do you think about the growing trend of natural skin care today?

I think it’s great so many customers are beginning to understand that putting synthetic materials onto the the skin is not the best way to keep it healthy. After all, skin is your body’s largest organ and it’s full of holes making it a direct pathway into your bloodstream.

Q: What do you think about matcha as beauty regimen?

I think it’s important to maintain a healthy diet as part of your skincare regimen and matcha has a boat load of antioxidants which can be great for the skin.

Q: How did you first hear about matcha? How long have you been using it?

I first discovered matcha while in California doing market research for an organic fertilizer company. During my time I became obsessed with health and wellness, making it my mission to seek out new and exciting ingredients. I found kombucha ,which I love, as well as matcha which is the best drink to have in the morning.

Q: Have you used matcha for your skin? How do you like it?

I do like to indulge in a matcha masque from time to time by mixing ½ tsp of matcha in with my Tailor Masque blend for a antioxidant rich detoxifying masque.

Q: Do you also use matcha in your diet? Which one(s) are your favourite matcha recipes?

I’m pretty plain and love a matcha latte. I make mine at home with a little oat milk and some New Zealand manuka honey.

Q: Are there any tips you want to share with us about skin and beauty care?

It’s important to be gentle with your skin and to use products which support it’s natural health and vitality. I love Tailor Oil Cleanse which is a gentle way to cleanse the skin and remove make up. It works by absorbing the dirty oily buildup without stripping the skin of it’s protective oily layer. It leaves your skin feeling fresh, clean and moisturised.


Thank you Sara for the lovely chat and your helpful skin care tips. It’s great hearing about your story and what you are doing. We wish you and Tailor all the best!
