From Musical Motions to Organic Lotions with Angela Jia Kim


Episode Summary

The lights of the concert hall dim. The audience grows silent in anticipation. Angela Jia-Kim, a talented concert pianist, sits in front of her piano and begins tickling the ivories like usual until hives start to appear all over her body. For a piano virtuoso, your hands are your life, so she began her investigation into what caused the outbreak –  her skincare. Armed with new information and a reignited passion, Angela began making organic Korean-inspired skincare in her home.

In the following years, this “accidental entrepreneur” developed her own Korean-inspired skincare line Savor Beauty, founded the New York luxury spa chain Savor Beauty + Spa, became a mother to her tween Sienna, and authored the book Radical Radiance (12 Weeks of Self-Love Rituals). Her skincare line and luxury spas have been featured in The New York Times, Vogue, Elle, People, Allure, and Well+Good. The change from musical motions to lotions and potions was not intuitive, but she knew she finally found her passion.
