Luxury. Performance. Purity.
The Vapour story began with an experienced organic product design team in the remote mountain location of Taos, New Mexico, USA. Krysia Boinis owned this innovative organic skin care manufacturing company where Kristine Keheley was the product formulator. They’d been working together for years and had tucked away many unique formulas.
Meanwhile in New York, Eric Sakas, a long time prestige cosmetics insider and previous president of Kevyn Aucoin was searching for the next step in cosmetics – it had to be unique and effective.
It was love at first sight when Eric encountered a Vapour prototype. “The product felt light-as-air and replicated the look of dewy youthful skin like nothing I’d ever seen,” said Eric. When Eric found the source of the sample, he was pleased to find that the products not only performed exceptionally well, but they were made entirely from certified organic plants and minerals.

100% of proceeds from the sales of HONOR Elixir Plumping Gloss are donated to benefit breast cancer research at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute where they are working towards the first breast cancer vaccine.
Vapour Organic Beauty co-founder Krysia Boinis, botanical expert and young breast cancer survivor says, “The untold truth about breast cancer research is that nearly all funding gets funneled into additional research on traditional treatments of chemo, radiation and surgery. Virtually no money is allocated to adequately test alternative treatment or prevention options. It’s a cycle that keeps women’s options limited and we want to help change that.”
