Pronounced KHIT-AH-VAA, Kitava is a real tropical island, located off the coast of Papau New Guinea, where acne does not exist amongst its inhabitants. While genetics is likely one of the causes, researchers believe the lack of acne could be attributed to their simplistic, plant-based diets and healthy lifestyles. This island is our inspiration.
