Why use essential oils and herb extracts in skin care products?
Essential oils and herb extracts have wonderful properties and are fantastic in skincare products, below are just some of the benefits and uses for them. Not only do they have great benefits on the skin, the essential oils work on the limbic system (which is the emotional part of the brain) so can help to balance us emotionally and lift our spirits. They can have uplifting or calming/sedating effects on us and so all K2A products have been specially blended and formulated to include ingredients which would not only soothe the skin but also create a spa experience for when you use it. We call this our skin ritual.
