Kate McIver

Kate McIver, the founder of Kate McIver Skin, was a highly thought-of Aesthetician in the UK.  Kate was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer in November 2016 and went through 9 months of gruelling treatment, which left her skin dark and dry – a common side-effect of Chemotherapy.  

Kate decided to fight back and use her skincare knowledge to develop a serum using natural ingredients that specifically target the problem and promotes skin cells’ rejuvenation.   


Kate was cancer free for 12 months and, during that time, returned to work completing skin treatments for her clients – using her Secret Weapon Serum as part of those. In November 2018, Kate was given the devastating news that her cancer had returned and was terminal. She sadly lost her battle in March 2019, at the age of 30 years old. 

Kate’s legacy continues to gain momentum with the support of the Sunshine Group and Aintree Hospital.
