Believing that beauty should be more than skin deep, she helps her customers find an added natural glow from supplements and positive thinking. Raised by her parents to help those in need, Connie has started a foundation that has been giving back to her community through numerous charities for children in the Houston area. In a recent interview, Connie answered some questions on her skincare line, charity work, and private life.

Q: What led you to create the CKW collection?

A: I strongly believe in giving back to the community, so I have decided to combine my two passions: beauty and charity. I will always donate part of my sales to charitable organizations. I believe inner beauty is as important as outer beauty, so I want to bring together the concept that looking pretty can also help us feel great when we are giving back to the community.

Q: What makes the CKW Collection different from other
skincare companies?

A: CKW COLLECTION is a skincare company with a holistic approach in achieving beauty. Believing in the idea of being “beautiful inside and out,” the company combines skincare products, supplements, and charity. To ensure the highest quality of all our products, ingredients and components, our company uses those that are not only on the cutting edge but are also natural and pure. By using natural and effective skincare products, consumers can see amazing results in less time. CKW COLLECTION is a pioneering brand and a trail blazer for the most effective skincare treatment by using this unique approach.

Q: Have you developed your skincare company for a particular
 type of woman?

A: My skincare products are for all women, young and old and for all skin types. We make products for normal, dry, oily and combination skin types. I have been in the skincare business for 18 years and have used my knowledge to develop the three-fold approach to beauty—skincare, supplements and positivity. I believe every woman can be beautiful by taking care of her appearance, and just as important is the added glow that comes from developing her inner beauty.

Q: I know that besides having your skincare company, you also have your own foundation—the Connie Kwan-Wong foundation. Could you please tell me more about your foundation?

A: I strongly believe that “giving is better than receiving.” So I wanted to strongly reinforce the concept that you should "love the people around you and help the people who need you." The main p urpose of my foundation is to raise awareness about the immediate problems and issues facing children in Houston, and about how best to address these issues. The foundation serves as a bridge between the Houston community and established children's charities to foster growth and community involvement in these wonderful organizations to help where needed.

Q: Which non-profit and charitable causes have you been supporting?

A: I have been supporting Kids’ Meals, Children's Defense Fund, Houston Children’s Charity, Boys and Girls Harbor and many other reputable organizations. Our focus is to raise awareness for different reputable charitable organizations to fight against childhood hunger and child abuse. We do this through scholarship awards, after-school enrichment programs, and adopting family programs. At Thanksgiving and Christmas, we especially like to participate in the holiday festivities by giving back at special events to brighten the lives of many children who are in need.

Q: What prompted you to get so involved in charity work?
A: From the time that I was just a young child, my parents always taught me to be sincere, to be honest, and to value friendship and family. That encouraged me to care about others and to help wherever possible. Once I met and married my husband, he further strengthened my commitment to be grateful and cherish the blessings of life and to spread those blessings to others whenever possible.

Q: Besides your business and charity work, what others hobbies
do you have?

A: I spend a lot of quality time with my friends and family. I like to meditate and exercise, and I also enjoy writing inspirational quotes.

Q: Have you ever thought of publishing your quotes as a book?

A: Yes, in fact, I have already finished my inspirational quotes book, and I am planning to launch it by the end of the year. Hopefully, my quotes wil l inspire other women to live a more fulfilling life.

Q: If people are interested in your product, where can they find
more information?

A: They may visit my website at

or send an email to

All things considered, the combination of Connie’s product line and charity work sets her business and reputation apart from most of her competitors. Her philosophy to help women obtain an outer and inner beauty has resulted in a growing company. Not only have her customers benefited from her products, but also countless children in the Houston area have been helped through her foundation. She is a testament to the power of one individual to make a difference in the lives of so many with her ability to combine business
and philanthropy.
