At RYOKO, years of study and a deep appreciation of the skin have led to the creation of our products.
We understand that the skin is a barometer; it is a true reflexion of our condition. Rather than hide or misinterpret the signs or problems which appear on the skin surface, we offer in-depth natural skin care products, combining aromatherapy, plant and flower sourced ingredients, which treats holistically mind, body and spirit.
The skin is breathing and what products are put on the skin will be absorbed into the skin. With this is mind, all our products are made of natural ingredients. They contain no parabens, no petroleum, stabilising chemicals nor synthetic scents. They contain botanical essences from essential oils or absolute, the ‘soul’ of plants. And the only animals they have been tested on are humans!
Aromatherapy Inspired Products
In our products, we combine our knowledge of the importance of the olfactory sense in it’s healing potential.
When scent is inhaled, the odour molecules directly travel up the part of the brain, which is called our limbic system.
It stimulates then master gland to release hormones, which in turn affect our autonomic nervous system; the complex network of nerves that regulate the body’s unconscious actions such as heart rate, blood pressure, digestion and more.
Not only does this system regulate many physical functions in our body, it maintains our homeostasis, in other words our balance.
Calm and relaxation can be restored to our body, via our autonomic nervous system. And it is with the careful consideration of all these factors that our skin care range has been designed.
