About KLASS

Our vision: “To share God’s love through KLASS ACT to create joy for those in need and enhance beauty by providing quality, healthy and environmentally friendly cosmetic and skin care products.”​

KLASS has been developed to meet our customers’ expectations and desires for the ideal cosmetic and skin care products. KLASS contains natural, paraben-free ingredients and is infused with essential vitamins to provide healthy and youthful looking skin with sun protection, anti-aging formula and hypoallergenic ingredients. All products are manufactured in the finest MANA laboratories in New York City, a company focused on industry inspired formulations for over 40 years. We offer high-quality formulas with very competitive pricing for maximum customer satisfaction.

 

KLASS is proud to be the first in the industry to provide a full-time charitable “Give Back” program known as KLASS ACT. For every purchase, the KLASS ACT Foundation will donate an additional item to an organization which sponsors women in need who would appreciate the opportunity to experience a luxury product. We believe, at the heart of our business, that charitable giving extends beyond monetary donations. We have chosen to spread love through KLASS ACT by gifting products to charities that empower women who are victims of domestic or sexual abuse, serious illness, and poverty. “Buy One, Give One …and share the gifts of joy and beauty.”

Crystal Knotek

Crystal Knotek, retired Sr. Vice President of Airport Operations & Customer Service for Northwest/Delta Airlines, is co-founder and CEO of the KLASS skincare and cosmetic product line along with her husband, Dr. Tim Knotek and Nick Raehsler. Together they share a faith-filled passion not only for creating inner peace and outer beauty through their KLASS brand, but also by supporting women of domestic abuse through their “Give Back” program called KLASS ACT.  For each KLASS purchase, a product is given to organizations that assist abused women in rebuilding their lives. 

 

Crystal has a Master’s degree in Marketing from the University of Minnesota.   She and her husband own the River Reflections Medspa and Salon in River Falls, WI where they currently reside.  They have four beautiful children and are also blessed with an amazing granddaughter.

This is an exciting time for Crystal and her husband Tim as they continue to honor Christ by enriching the lives of all who know them through KLASS and the KLASS ACT Foundation.

Romans 12:18 “Look for and see the beauty in everyone.”​


Dr. Tim Knotek

Dr Tim Knotek is a retired dentist who now provides cosmetic injectables (Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, Kybella) at River Reflections Medspa and Salon in River Falls, WI. After 30 yrs in dentistry, he decided to transition to the spa where he had the opportunity to work closely with his wife, Crystal. He loves to help create outer beauty and inner peace for his cosmetic clients.

 

Tim enjoys working with KLASS as the CFO where he keeps an eye on the “bottom line”, but most involvement is actually marketing, technical writing and assisting the implementation of KLASS ACT Foundation give-backs to organizations which empower women in need.  It always feels great to help people in your community!

Tim enjoys spending quality time with family, travel, golf, movies, reading, and coaching and watching his kids sporting events. Love for Jesus is his primary motivation and he strives to live the KLASS Vision: To share God’s love through KLASS ACT by creating joy for those in need and enhancing beauty by providing quality, healthy cosmetic and skincare products”.

As Dr Knotek likes to say, “Do things that make God Smile” !
