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.
The Facial by Ayuna is a GAME CHANGER. I've been using the high potency one for about a month and my skin loves it. I've previously used Herbivore Botanicals' The Prism serum but decided to switch it up as I've been curious about the Ayuna brand for some time. I didn't see any immediate results but about 10 days in, my skin was smooth and glowing like crazy. Also I appreciated that I didn't undergo any breakouts or skin purges as can happen when using new chemical exfoliators. Combine with Ursa Major's face wash and Maya Chia's pressed serum and I'm looking refreshed and aging gracefully. And before you get sticker shock, consider this. This bottle comes in at 6.8 fl oz while other exfoliating serums I've used might cost half but come in at 1 fl oz. So it is worth its weight in gold. Have been telling everyone I know about this one! Get it, you won't regret.
