Why We Use Icelandic Complex – and What Does ‘skyn’ Actually Mean?

Is stressing about not stressing really stressing you out?

If you are finding your skin to be lackluster, affected by aging, breaking out and irritated, it could be the effects of stress showing on your face. In your search for beauty magic you probably stumbled upon the only skin care line formulated to treat damage caused by stress, and now you’re here! We love skin, Icelandic ingredients, and natural remedies that actually work. Let us explain:

When you bought your first skyn ICELAND product, you may have noticed in the ingredients something called Icelandic Complex. Icelandic Complex is included in every product, and it is a mix of magical and effective Icelandic ingredients that fortify and transform stressed skin. The Icelandic Complex is sourced from Iceland’s pure and pollution-free environment. We wanted to break it down for you:

Icelandic Glacial Water: Sourced from pollution free glacial water in Iceland, this ingredient contains 6 essential minerals that detoxify and hydrate skin. Glacial Water has a pH of 8.88 and can help your body maintain a healthy pH level by reducing acidity in your body and restoring balance.

Arctic Cloudberry and Cranberry Seed Oils: These Arctic super fruits are rich in Omega Fatty Acids, vitamins and potent antioxidants. Vitamins A, C and E work hard to protect skin while fatty acids repair and brighten depleted cells. These oils contain tocotrienols, which are key ingredients to soothe itchy, irritated skin and relieve skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

Pure Molecular Oxygen: Encapsulated oxygen breathes fresh air into the deepest layers of the skin and boosts cell metabolism, along with providing cells with energy and nutrients.

The word ‘skyn’ in skyn ICELAND isn’t just a fun play on the word ‘skin’- it actually means “senses” in Icelandic! The goal of skyn ICELAND is to heal and protect stressed and depleted skin, and we can’t ignore the direct link between your senses reflecting on the way you look and feel. Every time you wash your face, moisturize, put on a mask, and take selfies in your face gels- we want our customers to feel the connection with Iceland and let the ingredients heal stressed skin.

    Thank you for your knowledge.
    I suffer from ptsd and carry a lot of stress, so I started with this brand for over a year already and I can’t complain. Today I am trying out Hydro cool Brightening face mask, so I’m hoping for dull look to go away.. I love the SKYN BRAND and won’t try anything else..
