One of the greatest things about Yon-Ka skincare products is the blend of natural ingredients included within each product. Our “Quintessence”, a synergistic expression of 5 aromatic essential oils includes lavender, rosemary, geranium, thyme, and cypress oils. This sensual blend is the heart and soul of every YON-KA Product. These essential oils provide unique benefits to ensure your skin looks healthy, soothed, and revitalized. Below you’ll learn exactly what makes our Quintessence so special…
You may be surprised to learn that lavender oil contains both anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. If you’re someone who suffers from acne, lavender can help smooth and rebalance your skin. Being anti-inflammatory and antiseptic means it can help fight the bacteria that cause pesky acne blemishes and prevent inflammation in the skin.
Lavender oil is also great for treating eczema because it can help soothe any itching or irritation associated with this skin condition. The antioxidants within lavender oil can also help to detoxify your skin and rid your pores of the environmental toxins and pollutants we encounter on a daily basis.
Rosemary oil contains many great ingredients that benefit your skin. It can help treat issues such as aging, sun damage, and even acne. Rosemary has been shown to support healthy collagen levels due to the iron, calcium, and vitamin B6 it contains. It’s also a rich source of manganese, which can help minimize the appearance of wrinkles. Rosemary can also protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun and free radicals. This is extremely important because damage from the sun and free radicals leads wrinkles, sagging skin, and an uneven skin tone.
Due to the antiseptic properties of rosemary, it can even be helpful in the treatment of acne by fighting bacteria and reducing oil production. Rosemary promotes cell renewal and hydrates the skin, which is sure to leave you glowing!
If you’re looking for something to help with aging skin, geranium oil is another great ingredient you’ll want in your skincare products. Due to its anti-aging properties, geranium oil can be used to prevent sagging skin and wrinkles. It can even be used to speed up cell renewal, which you’ll find helpful if you have scars or skin spots you want to fade.
Also great for treating acne, geranium oil has anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties to help fight active breakouts and prevent future breakouts. It’s a must-have skincare ingredient for promoting clear, youthful-looking skin.
You’ve probably used thyme while cooking dinner in the kitchen, but odds are you’ve never thought about using it on your face! Thyme oil is both anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, making it a fantastic ingredient in your skincare. It can be used to prevent acne breakouts while causing less irritation than products that contain benzoyl peroxide.
Thyme oil is also rich in both manganese and vitamin K, which provide your skin with the antioxidants it needs to fight off damage from free radicals and keep your skin looking healthy.
Also an antiseptic and anti-bacterial ingredient, cypress oil can be used to heal wounds and infections, including those in the form of acne. If you’re suffering from various types of pimples, including pustules, try cypress oil for treating the area. It does a great job at killing the bacteria to promote clear skin. This oil can even help regulate oil levels in the skin, which can help prevent acne breakouts.
Cypress oil can prevent the signs of aging, as it can stimulate muscle tissue. The end result will reveal firmer looking skin and reduce the appearance of sagginess.
