You might have heard of Quintessence when it comes to Yon-Ka products.  It is Yon-Ka’s signature ingredient that is used in different concentrations, and contributes to the effectiveness of each product.  You might be wondering, what exactly is the Yon-Ka Quintessence?  It’s an exclusive blend of five essential oils that are 100% natural, 100% pure and 100% active.  And this blend of essential oils is at the heart of every Yon-Ka product.  Each oil has unique benefits to ensure that your skin looks healthy, soothed and revitalised.

Lavender essential oil

The first oil in the Yon-Ka Quintessence is lavender essential oil. It has so many benefits, and is well loved for it’s relaxing, floral fragrance.  Many turn to the scent in times of anxiety and insomnia as it has shown to have calming and soothing properties.  Its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties make it effective on acne-prone, sensitive and reactive skin.   The antioxidants in lavender essential oil can help to detoxify the skin and protect it from environmental pollutants.

Geranium essential oil

This essential oil is ideal for those who want to help with aging skin.  It helps to tone, protect and balance the skin, helping to prevent sagging skin, wrinkles and blemishes.  As the skin ages, it can lose its suppleness and radiance, and geranium essential oil can bring that back, while comforting inflamed skin too.  It has anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties which help fight existing breakouts on acne-prone skin, while helping to prevent future breakouts too.

Rosemary essential oil

This essential oil has detoxifying, antiseptic and firming properties.  It can help treat skin issues including aging, sun damage and acne.  The antiseptic properties of rosemary shows that it can help in the treatment of acne by reducing oil production in the skin and fighting bacteria.  It protects the skin from sun damage and free radical damage which can lead to wrinkles, sagging skin and an uneven skin tone.  It promotes blood circulation, strengthens the immune system, and reduces stress.

Cypress essential oil

Cypress oil has the ability to treat wounds and infections, killing the bacteria to promote clear skin.  Its astringent properties works at detoxifying dull skin, oily skin and aging skin.   It can stimulate muscle tissue, helping to reveal firmer looking skin and is an ideal ingredient for those with orange-peel skin and skin that’s losing its tone.  Its refining properties make it an ingredient used for its effect on the lymphatic system, which in turn reduces water retention and the appearance of cellulite.

Thyme essential oil

Thyme essential oil is the final oil in the Yon-Ka Quintessence.  It’s both anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, making it an important ingredient for those with blemish-prone and rosacea-prone skin.  Because of these properties, it can be used as a more gentle solution to acne breakouts, compared to products containing benzoyl peroxide.  It is rich in vitamin K and manganese which are both powerful antioxidants.  They help the skin to fight the damage of free radicals, keeping the skin looking healthy.
