ABOUT THIS BRAND
Ayuna was founded by Isabel Ramos and Begoña San Juan, two seasoned beauty professionals with a vision for innovation. Begoña is a master esthetician, passionate beauty industry professional and expert in product development, Spa and Wellness therapies and aesthetic treatments. Dr. Isabel Ramos has a PhD in chemistry and is an expert in Green Technology and the development of natural cosmetics with a unique understanding the science of the skin, biochemical and biophysical mechanisms and the art of product textures.
Through Ayuna's essential skincare products, Begoña and Isabel introduce a whole new dimension to how to treat the skin based on topical fasting and well-aging. Topical fasting has the same basis as general fasting; eliminate overstimulation, limit intake and provide a balanced diet to allow for self-repair and self-regeneration mechanisms to be immediately activated. Well-aging applies the principles of epigenetics and the brain-skin connection to refocus our view of skin aging. Research shows that our thoughts, lifestyle and environment can alter our DNA. Ayuna skincare embraces this research, with a slow and intentional approach to aging that gives us the space to connect with beauty in a positive way and adapt the teachings of mindfulness to the realm of beauty. Begoña and Isabel’s experience in skincare, combined with their extensive understanding of the sophisticated beauty client, active ingredients and application methodology led them to a natural evolution in the field of skincare. From this alliance of knowledge and experience Ayuna, Less Is Beauty was born – an evolutionary scientific-botanical approach to cosmetics that favors simple beauty and a commitment to pure, effective and clean cosmetics.
I have heard people wonder, what justifies the price of Ayuna's products? After using them, I have concluded it is that they have more elegant and refined formulations than standard products on the market that try to achieve the same results. This purifying mask is much gentler on the skin than usual purifying or detoxifying masks. Any particles are extremely fine, so it isn't gritty or harsh on the skin. It goes on smooth and thin, and so there is not much glop to wipe off at the end. And the process only takes a few minutes before the mask is dry and results are achieved. More sophisticated and less drying than typical clay or charcoal masks for the same purpose. I was delighted from the first use.
