The exquisite organic skincare products are enriched with natural organic ingredients, plant-based, food-grade and cold-pressed oils, steam-distilled therapeutic-grade essential oils, and patented bio-active ingredients, which all come together to create powerful formulas that improve the skin’s appearance. Additionally, specific energetically-infused crystals with restorative power have been added to some products to help cells flourish on an energetic level.

The organic and high-quality ingredients are ethically sourced, and the products are cruelty-free, strictly free of synthetic ingredients, fillers and preservatives. The products are designed to support your skin’s natural renewal – to give skin just what it naturally needs to look and feel healthy.

The story

Spending all her childhood in the Bohemian Mountains, Krkonoše, surrounded by lush green hills, meadows full of wildflowers, deep woods and crystal clear creeks, founder Petra was always a child of nature. The herbal wisdom was passed onto Petra by her grandma and her parents. Every summer, they collected medicinal plants, herbs and mushrooms at their cottage. They would dry them, marinate them in oils and make special tinctures.

Petra’s interest in the power of natural healing was always present but escalated rapidly when her son was born with severe eczema. She struggled to find quality natural alternatives to mainstream chemical-based skincare products. Petra created Yage Organics in her quest to help ease her son’s skin condition.

Petra then moved with her family to the UK to be closer to the best experts in this field. She could work closely with the world’s best laboratories to deliver, what she believes, is the best naturally formulated products with a maximum of active ingredients.

Her strong Bohemian Mountain roots and working with the best experts in cosmetic science in London gave birth to Yage. In the company’s studio in London, ultra-effective, nutrient-rich botanical blends for the face are formulated and handcrafted.

The organic skincare range, created using all-natural ingredients known for their active properties, is the culmination of Petra’s knowledge and modern science.

About name Yage organic skincare

The word yage conceals the magical power of the Amazon. A yage drink is made by Amazonian Indians from the Kofan tribe from the Aguarico River, to which Petra’s father took her years ago. Yage is a mysterious force that transmits them to the unearthly world, where they can recognise the secrets of Mother Nature during sacred nights of drinking. Petra’s father has devoted more than 50 years to the Amazonian Indians and Amazonian nature with thousands and thousands of endemic plants containing rare oils, dyes, poisons, active substances or hallucinogens. Yage is for Indians, for Petra’s father and herself; a symbol of the pure, unspoiled nature of the Amazon, the largest tropical jungle on the planet, a reservoir of oxygen and many medicines.

Potent formulas with high concentrations of actives

At Yage Organics, ingredients matter. The company delivers some of the finest and most advanced formulations in luxury green beauty. Here, products marry innovative botanicals with results-driven active ingredients in generous concentrations for prime efficacy.

Many skincare brands and their products contain up to 90% water and cheap fillers. In fact, there is only a small percentage of active beneficial ingredients.

Yage Organics offers a premium natural skincare line in its purest form, containing organic and only active ingredients. From premium and rare botanical extracts to exquisite oils, the company sources high-quality ingredients that are sustainable, high-performance and selected for their hydrating, brightening, age-defying, clarifying, nourishing and protective skin benefits.

Yage Organics is intentionally formulated without using controversial ingredients, low-quality ingredients, cheap fillers and water as a base. Every ingredient is meticulously chosen and has a purpose and function to provide an exquisite sensorial experience with high levels of efficacy.

For instance, Yage face oil consists of approx. 18 different precious botanical nourishing oils, 14 other nourishing fruit and plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, phospholipids, essential oils and four different patented active ingredients. Yage serum Hello Beautiful just won the Gold Medal at the international Beauty Shortlist Awards. The serum consists of 77% of botanical extracts, and flower distillates such as horsetail, green tea, nettle, geranium, and rose of lavender instead of ordinary water. The serum is packed with unusually high powerful patented active ingredients to promote young and healthy glowing skin. The brand only uses 13% water, which is the minimum needed for the formulation process.

All of Yage Organics’ oil-based products are preservative-free, while water-based products are formulated with lower pH to prevent bacterial growth, with a combination of Ecocert-approved Pentylene Glycol or Sodium Levulinate with Sodium Anisate. While these products keep the products fresh for longer, they are not classified as a preservative as such, and allow Yage to maintain preservative-free claims for their finished products. The product’s active principle is a blend of compounds found in many plants in nature. Yage Organics also uses natural Vitamin E in some products to extend the natural shelf life and keep the oils in their freshest and most potent form.

Factors that set Yage Organics apart

Guided by founder Petra’s passion for innovation and excellence, Yage Organics is on a continuous quest to elevate the green beauty industry with organic skincare products that have been rigorously formulated to optimise the skin’s beauty. The company is committed to delivering some of the finest, natural and organic, consciously sourced, and sustainable ingredients to replenish the skin cells so that you can enjoy that much-wanted skin glow and the best possible skin health.

The highly-rated organic skincare brand comes with a full repertoire of stand-out features, including:

HIGH-QUALITY INGREDIENTS: Every ingredient included in Yage Organics’ products is there for a specific reason. The luxurious blends contain natural ingredients, plant-based, food-grade, cold-pressed oils, steam-distilled, therapeutic-grade essential oils, and many certified organic ingredients. They are filled with some of the most powerful natural antioxidants, precious oils, marine & phytonutrients, vitamins, phospholipids, skin firming phytoceramides and collagen. The botanical formulations are 100% synthetic and filler-free, meaning that the products are packed with high concentrations that are rich in potent, active ingredients.

NATURAL: Yage Organics uses the finest natural ingredients it can find. This includes herbs, extract, butters, clay, and natural oils. Even the brand’s hyaluronic acid is special – it goes through the natural fermentation process to create different weight molecules. The only synthetic ingredient is retinol – used in the night oil Sleeping Beauty –  due to its unquestionable benefits. In other products, Yage Organics has replaced it with the natural substitute Bakuchiol so it can be used even during the day.

HIGHLY CONCENTRATED: Every ingredient in the various formulations is included for a specific reason. Yage Organics does not use fillers of any kind, meaning that almost every ingredient in the products is an active ingredient. This results in pure, highly concentrated and effective formulas that are a rarity in today’s skincare and cosmetics.

INTELLIGENT FORMULAS: Renowned for its intelligent formulas that are both effective and indulgent, Yage Organics always delivers results in the most effective way possible. With ingredients ranging from French pink clay to Brazilian gemstones, the company combines essential vitamins, precious oils, minerals and botanicals in order to restore your skin to its optimum health and vitality.

RESPONSIBLY AND ETHICALLY SOURCED INGREDIENTS: Yage Organics selects ingredients known not only for their unique properties but also for their ethical provenance. The company sources its ingredients from around the world with respect for our natural environment and its resources, carefully selecting only the purest, most vibrant, raw and unrefined ingredients from only the most trusted sources who share the company’s ethics and values. Yage Organics tries to outsource locally whenever possible, and the company always checks with its supplier that the ingredients are from sustainable resources. That is why you will never find any palm oil in the company’s products.

WATERLESS FORMULAS: Most of Yage Organics’ products do not contain water. There are a few reasons for this. You receive a highly concentrated product with 100% of active ingredients, and the company does not have to use any preservatives. Waterless skincare is also considered to be more ecological. The company substitutes water for hydrolats, fruit water or bamboo water.

HANDMADE IN SMALL BATCHES: For optimum freshness and effectiveness, every precious potion is handmade in small batches weekly. Skincare is the most potent when fresh, and the formulas have not been weakened by time-related breakdown.

HOLISTIC: The mind and spirit, as well as the body, should be in balance. Yage Organics sees beauty and wellness as a holistic process; this loving ritual should be a divine way to take time for you. Working with natural ingredients and using the power of natural oils attuned to the vibration of gemstones means working holistically.

BASED ON KOREAN TRADITIONS: Yage Organics believes in the power of Korean skincare traditions. Traditionally in Korea and other Asian countries, beautiful and flawless skin is considered very important, resulting in one of the most developed skincare systems in the world. Using this as inspiration, Yage Organics has numbered the beauty process of how to use our products so you can benefit from this rich ancient knowledge. It is easy to think of the Yage ritual as separate layers, yet each product works synergistically with one another to deliver optimal results. For full flexibility, you can also choose and enjoy your favourite product without following all the steps.

CRYSTAL INFUSED: Yage Organics’ exquisite botanical skincare products are infused and amplified with the high vibrational healing energies of crystals and gemstones. Crystals have been valued and used for their healing capabilities for centuries. Each one has its own different vibration and healing energy that balances the body and mind, harmonising us both inside and out.

Precious stones like rose quartz, tourmaline, lapis lazuli, rainbow fluorite, honey crystal calcite, garnet, amethyst, aquamarine and carnelian help harmonise emotions and make your skin younger. Thanks to the high vibrations of crystals, Yage possesses active energy. This is beneficial for both the body and the mind.

COSMOS APPROVED: COSMOS is the internationally recognised standard that sets certification rules and requirements for organic and natural cosmetic products in Europe. They are an independent organisation with strict rules and standards in place to ensure that each product is certified correctly.

Gaining a COSMOS ORGANIC or COSMOS NATURAL signature means that a company has met several in-depth criteria to ensure consumers that their products are genuine organic or natural. These criteria are not just focused on the ingredients themselves but include checks on various processes at the brand’s studio, how the ingredients are sourced, ensuring that products are not tested on animals and the sustainability of the brand’s formulations and packaging.

Yage Organics is only using COSMOS approved ingredients. This means that you can be confident that each product was sourced, created and produced to be genuinely organic, and designed with both the planet and your skin in mind.

TESTED: The products are tested in laboratories in UK and Germany for purity.

VEGAN & CRUELTY-FREE: The skincare line is vegan. Yage Organics is a 100% cruelty-free brand that does not test on animals or allow other parties to test on their behalf.

FREE FROM: The organic skincare products are free from Synthetic Colours and Fragrances and ingredients like Palm Oil, Alcohol, synthetic and harmful Preservatives, Emulsifiers, GMOs, Pollutants, Mineral Oils, Phthalates, Fillers, Inorganic Salts, Heavy Metals, SLS/SLES, Sulphates, DEA, TEA and PEGS, Silicones and Additives. Most of the products are preservative-free.

NUMBERED: Each product is numbered to guide you through your daily routine. You can use all ten or a combination of these for your individual concerns or if you are in a hurry. The products have been specifically formulated to complement each other, and the best results are achieved when used in conjunction with one another.

ECO-RESPONSIBLE MINIMAL PACKAGING: Yage Organics’ premium dark violet glass preserves the potency and shelf life of the brand’s organic botanical products. The protection from sunlight reduces molecular decay by filtering out damaging rays of the visible light spectrum and allowing portions of the energising UVA and infrared waves in. Yage Organics only uses packaging that is recyclable and often reusable.

The brand’s hero products

While we could wax lyrical about all of Yage Organics’ products, some of the hero products are:

Yage Organics Sleeping Beauty is an intensive night facial oil serum. This is a wow product, which I will use for the rest of my life. This ultra-luxurious, hand-blended oil combines 15 of nature’s most potent botanical oils alongside 11 nourishing fruit and plant extracts, vitamins, and phospholipids. Plankton and Retinol help diminish the appearance of fine lines and age spots. Blackcurrant, with its optimal ratio of omega-6 and three essential fatty acids, is our hero for healthy skin. ALGAKTIV® Zen is an exclusive microalgae blend; it prevents DNA damage and cellular ageing by inhibiting key stress signals – cortisol and adrenalin. It decreased wrinkle depth by 15% and skin scaliness by 13% in just 15 days, thanks to its revolutionary relaxation action. It improved skin radiance and glow by 10% in 15 days.

Magical phyto retinol elixir from Yage Organics

Another stand-out product is the Magic Elixir with Phyto-Retinol, a rejuvenating oil for the eye area. This exquisite oil combines 13 of nature’s most potent botanical oils alongside ten nourishing fruit and plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, phospholipids, and essential oils. It is led by the extremely powerful Iris, Algae, Bakuchiol (a natural alternative to retinol) and Coenzyme Q10. The unique composition is complemented by precious oils such as Cacay, Blueberry, Cranberry, Tomato, Blackcurrant and Argan that supply the skin with deeply-penetrating antioxidants, vitamins, and essential omega fatty acids. Working in synergy, these precious plant oils and extracts deliver noticeable results, instantly illuminating, hydrating, and nourishing fragile skin without exacerbating puffiness. In time, this oil led by Iris and Retinol like Bakuchiol helps boost collagen production for firmer texture and elasticity and encourages skin cell regeneration. It protects against premature ageing and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and age spots.

Aqua Splash, a multi-molecular hydrating essence/serum with spirulina, is another cult beauty favourite, thanks to the acclaimed hyaluronic acid. But the brand’s hyaluronic acid is not like standard hyaluronic acid.

Yage Organics’ hyaluronic acid is vegan and mainly fermented. This guarantees the formation of different molecular sizes, which means maximum similarity to the production of hyaluronic acid that takes place in our body. Unlike laboratory production of hyaluronic acid, which produces the same molecular sizes, Yage Organics’ fermented miracle has considerable variability in molecular size. It can therefore penetrate deeper into the epidermis while remaining on the skin’s surface. It is simply more effective both inside and on the surface. It offers deep hydration, reduces wrinkles, modulates sebum production, improves skin texture, plumps and elasticities the skin barrier, and has an anti-inflammatory effect. The antioxidant properties of the stable form of Vitamin C and Copper from malachite help fight free radicals and damage caused by UV radiation. The topical application of niacinamide improves skin barrier function for increased skin hydration.

The Au revoir wrinkles, an anti-ageing facial oil serum, is another must-have product. This exquisite oil combines 18 of nature’s most potent botanical oils alongside 14 other nourishing fruit and plant extracts, vitamins, minerals, phospholipids, and essential oils. It is led by powerful Algae, Plankton, and Coenzyme Q10 with proven anti-wrinkle activity. Precious oils such as Cacay, Sacha Inchi, Marula, Rosehip, Camellia, Blueberry, Sandalwood and Baobab fill the skin with deeply-penetrating antioxidants, vitamins, carotenoids, and essential omega fatty acids. Working in synergy, these precious plant oils and extracts deliver noticeable results, instantly illuminating, hydrating, and nourishing skin.

Face oils from Yage

Hello Beautiful is a holy-grail collagen and protein anti-ageing botanical serum. A natural anti-wrinkle serum loaded with the most effective and powerful botanical extracts to fight wrinkles. It acts as a blue light and pollution protector. It contains an antioxidant-rich Lingonberry, anti-inflammatory Prickly Pear blend with the powers of line-smoothing African medical plant Bulbine and Lupine peptide, which activates the production of high-quality collagen.

This silky, age-defying serum is clinically proven to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles instantly. Also, the new production of collagen and glucosamine glucans is accelerated. It mimics the action of collagen but uses plant cells to impart greater elasticity, more resilience, and a youthful look to the skin.
