Q& A with Kim Walls: Furtuna Skin, Co-Founder
1. City of residence:
2. Place of birth:
3. In under five sentences, define your business:
Brands tell a story. I create and support brands and products that tell stories worth telling. Through business, I work to help solve social and environmental challenges connected to the things I care about, like issues of mental health, violence, financial instability, and the plastic in our oceans.
4. What is one skincare practice all women should implement in their daily skincare routine?
Wash your face every night. Every single night.
5. Out of all the products you produce, which is your favorite? Why?
I have favorites, but not just one. Too many to choose just one.
6. If you could share just one piece of wisdom with the world, what would it be?
Remember that if you are deeply angry with someone or about something, you are most likely angry with yourself. If we could all look inward with honesty, integrity and vulnerability before we strike out, then we might just have world peace someday.
7. What book(s) are you currently reading?
Fantasyland, Terrors of the Table, When Healing Becomes a Crime
8. Quote you (try to) live by?
Do unto others as you would have done to you. (Boring but true.)

10. What is one random fact that most people don’t know about you?
I collect gargoyles.
