Prai founder talks about Today’s Special Value


Cathy Kangas from Prai Prai beauty is back at QVC Towers today with another fabulous skincare Today's Special Value. It includes everything you need to tackle signs of ageing.

We caught up with Prai's founder, Cathy Kangas, to find out more out Prai's philosophy and their skincare products…

For a new customer, how would you describe PRAI's philosophy? 

PRAI Beauty is a world-renowned collection of luxurious, age-defying beauty products infused with our signature ingredient Prai root essence. This historical botanical was used in secret recipes, reserved for royalty, and is now brought to you via advanced skincare formulations that make skin feel and look beautiful.

I also like to think we are a 'beauty brand with a cause' as Prai is active in their support of animal charities and organisations by donating a certain percentage of our proceeds.

Prai Today's Special Value Do you have any tips on how to get the most from Today's Special Value?

Begin with Pure Prai Serum to help improve the elasticity of your skin. Next, apply Crème Royale for continued hydration and to tackle fine lines, wrinkles and dehydration lines. It's great for prevention too. Finish with your Ageless Throat & Décolletage Crème. Apply with sweeping, gentle upward strokes from below the bust up through the throat area making sure to cover all décolletage areas. 

Cathy’s skincare tips:  Create a customized skincare cocktail by taking Crème Royale and adding a drop of Pure Prai Serum, then mix and apply. You can do the same with the Ageless Throat & Décolletage Crème

How did you come across prai-based formulas?
The story began with a Journey into Thailand with a CNN crew working on an ingredient that the Thai monks used for healing – Prai Root Essence. Together with state-of-the-art technology we have produced unique skincare.

What skin types would Prai formulas suit?

All skin types – for those who look to prevent as well as repair the signs of ageing.

What are your three top products from the range?
They would have to be Ageless Throat & Décolletage Cream, 24K Golden Caviar and Pure Prai Serum. Oh, and a new favourite of mine is Freeze Frame!

    Hi Cathy,
    I love your range and was just about to purchase the cleanser and toner and found that they had been removed from the QVC site. Will you be bringing them back so that we can have the full range available to us?
    Best regards,

    Hi Cathy
    What would you recommend for a scar on my lip. I know that I will never be able to hide it completely. I would be happy if I could camoflage slightly

    How long is the ‘shelf life’ of the serum in the TSV?
    Thank you

    Hi Cathy,
    Will the Prai Serum in the TSV diminish existing brown pigmentation marks caused by sun damage and hormonal breakouts? Is it suitable for oily skins?

    Hi Cathy,
    Is this range suitable for people who have just started to notice the signs of ageing? I’m in my late 30s.
    Kind regards,

    Are your products or ingredients tested on animals and do they have any animal ingredients
    in them.

    I have combination skin with enlarged pores on my nose & cheeks. Would todays TSV be right for me or would I be better with the oceanic serum?

    Hi Elizabeth,
    I am thrilled you are enjoying your products. To answer your question: YES we will be bringing the cleanser and toner back!! With Love, Cathy Kangas

    Hi Edna,
    I am sorry to say but we don’t have a product in our line that you actually apply to the lip (except lip gloss). I would recommend the Ageless Lip Line Filler for the area around your mouth. I really wish I could have helped you more.
    With Love, Cathy Kangas

    Hello Margaret, it is great to hear from you. The shelf life is 2 years.
    With Love, Cathy Kangas

    The Pure PRAI Serum is suitable for oily skins especially if you are using it for spot treatments (on the lines/wrinkles only) but it won’t diminish brown pigmentation marks.
    You should try our Silk Serum and/or Platinum de Luxe to help even tone the skin.
    With Love, Cathy Kangas

    Hello Ann,
    PRAI does NOT test on animals nor use animal ingredients. I am very involved with Animal charities and even created Beauty With A Cause to continue to help the animals. Thanks for asking a great question.
    With Love,
    Cathy Kangas
