How Stress Affects Skin
Everyone’s experienced it: stress from work deadlines, school projects, uncertainty in the world, late nights with the girlfriends, ferrying the kids around…it’s a part of everyday life, right? But have you ever wondered how all that pressure and anxiety affects your skin?
Several published studies in the area of psychodermatology – the scientific study of how emotions affect skin – have shown that stress can actually compromise the skin’s ability to function properly, to heal wounds and to fight disease. Coupled with the fact that more than 4 out of 10 adults experience adverse health effects from stress, it’s no wonder our skin is suffering.
Our Iceland Connection
Our inspiration comes from the pure, unspoiled natural resources of Iceland. What makes Iceland special? The clean air, deep fjords, mineral-rich hot springs, untouched glacial rivers, antioxidant powered berries, and immune-boosting botanicals represent a peaceful and balanced oasis compared to the overscheduled and often overwhelming tendencies of modern life.
Iceland is also home to some of the world’s purest and most potent natural ingredients. We’ve sourced and enhanced these ingredients with cutting-edge skincare science to create products that help transform stressed skin that is exhausted and irritated.
In the Icelandic language, “skyn” means “senses.” Our products will also indulge your senses, bringing an overall sense of calm and bliss back to you and your skin. Our goal is simple: to create quality products that will help you feel as good as you look so that you can take on the world.

Sourced from Iceland’s pure and potent environment, it contains pollution-free Icelandic Glacial Water, Arctic Super Fruits, and Pure Molecular Oxygen.
Botanicals Sourced from the Arctic
Iceland and the Arctic have a short growing season due to it being light only part of the year that, in conjunction with the region’s mineral-rich volcanic soil and unpolluted air, creates plants with hyper-potent properties.

The same is true for the marine elements and algaes that are able to survive in sub-zero temperatures due to their special protective properties that protect them from freezing. These unique botantical ingredients are used across our various products, differentiating us from other skincare brands.
