Most commercial cleansers are detergent-based and therefore they make the skin's acidic moisture alkaline, which directly results in the retention of dead skin cells. This in turn prevents regular skin detoxification and creates a 'mask' of dead skin cells. Use of the Yin Yang Skin Cleanser twice a day over a period of three weeks will exfoliate to reveal healthy skin beneath.

Apply on the face and neck with cotton wool, lightly massage and then remove. Repeat until the last piece of cotton wool remains absolutely white. When the skin is very alkaline, this cleansing routine may cause mild tingling as the skin adjusts to its proper pH.
Follow with an application of Orange Water Skin Toner over the face and neck, and an application of the appropriate Yin Yang Moisturiser, Skin Conditioner or pH-Amino Cream.
The YinYang product range was designed and formulated by skincare expert, Katie May.
With a background in the food industry, she began formulating her own range of beauty care products in 1972. Using food ingredients in the formulations was simply a natural progression from her professional background. If it's not good enough to eat, why would you wish to put it on your skin? Especially when you know it will be absorbed into the body, just as readily as if you had consumed it.
Katie is adamant that the ingredients should be as pure and natural as possible.
While the YinYang range was developed and continues to be manufactured in England, it was inspired by the ancient Chinese philosophy of ‘Yin’ and ‘Yang’, used to explain the changes that occur in nature.
This philosophy is described by the Yin Yang symbol: the black and white shapes within the circle represent the interaction of two opposing yet complementary energies, Yin (black) and Yang (white), which cause everything in nature to happen. While Yin would be dark, passive, downward, cold, contracting, and weak, Yang would be bright, active, upward, hot, expanding, and strong. The ancient Chinese observed the principle of opposites in the natural events around them: day and night, light and darkness, waking and sleeping, activity and rest, summer and winter, growth and decay, man and woman, hot and cold, heaven and earth, sun and moon, etc. The interlocking shapes of the Yin and Yang sections of the symbol actually give a sense of the continual movement of these two energies and their interrelationship. And so the concept of Yin and Yang shows how harmony is achieved by nature’s opposing forces.
Just as the YinYang symbol reflects the idea of perfection in nature, so does our range of unique natural skincare products. Thus, inspired by ancient Chinese philosophy, our motto is ‘Naturally Balanced Perfection’.
