Our Story

Good day fun and fearless lady!

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I am Carna van Niekerk, and I am the founder of Skoonsuster to give you access to quality products that I have come to love.

Not so long ago, I worked in a hard-core, emotionally draining and environmentally challenging environment. And no, it wasn’t the Company that I worked for. I am a Site Engineer, so it comes with the territory. Needless to say – my life revolved around my work – leaving extraordinarily little time for myself. And without really noticing it, I lost a part of myself. Little by little.

Although I was motivated and loved what I did, it was the small things that started disappearing from my life – including physical health, which then affected my emotional perception about myself.

Then it hit me, I wanted something more out of my life. Not another career – just more. And I knew I had to make a change in order to balance on this delicate tight-rope we all have to walk on daily.

So, I took the first step on my journey towards living a healthier and happier lifestyle.

Although I craved instant results, I knew that living an optimal well-balanced life meant having the courage to pursue a new way of doing things. And like you are doing now, I turned to solutions and products to assist me in my quest.

I was bombarded with so many different products that I couldn’t keep track of my mind or my budget. So, I followed my inherent love for research, and I sourced quality products. It took a few tries and tests, but then I found that I didn’t have to force disgusting concoctions down my throat, starve myself or try to do something that isn’t right for me. I just had to focus on what I wanted, which is to enjoy the journey. Because I knew that if I enjoyed it, sticking to it would be a joy too.

And so it started…

No – I didn’t get any instant results! But I quickly started feeling better, and shortly thereafter I started looking better. I realised that a healthy lifestyle isn’t just diet and exercise, but about overall wellness. And now I am on this voyage of living a better life with you.

To me, overall happiness means taking care of your mind, body and spiritual wellbeing. This new healthy way of life has given me a better-quality lifestyle, it has increased my confidence and improved my self-esteem, and it has given me a new excitement about being part of this world.

So, I am on a quest to continue sourcing quality products that work for me, my friends and family and hopefully for you too. I try, test, taste and evaluate each and every product before it is launched on the website!

Health isn’t a destination. It’s a thrilling, infuriating, and worthwhile journey. And once you get started, you won’t want to stop.

With love,
Carna
