Areca catechu (Betel) extract

Areca catechu is a species of palm believed to have originated in the Philippines and today it can be found in tropical Asia, the pacific and east Africa. Areca Catechu (betel) plant is also called “Maak” in Thai culture. The betel nut, which contains phenolics and alkaloids, has long been used for chewing by the elderly as it is believed to release adrenaline and the feeling of euphoria. Though less so today, the plant has played a big role in Thai tradition and culture. For example: - Areca Catechu leaves are used to decorate tray offerings in ceremonies in which students demonstrate their respect and gratitude for their teachers - From a religious perspective, the Areca Catechu tree is offered as a place for place for roaming spirits to inhabit or possess. It is also used in the wedding ceremonies in which the groom will offer the betel leaf and nut to the parents of the bride upon his arrival to the wedding. Medicinally, Areca Catechu has been widely used in clinical practice in China, India and other Southeast Asian Countries for antiparasitic, anti-depressive, anti-fatigue, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal effects. A study found this medicinal plant to help preserve collagen and elastin fibers against the degradation by hydrolytic enzymes. In a cream containing 3% of Areca catechu, the result shows an increase in skin elasticity. Another study shows the extract at concentration of 4% can stimulate collagen synthesis by 140%. The leaf extract is used as an active ingredient in Yen Heal & Hydrate to promote stimulation of collagen syntheisis.

Labisia pumila (Kacip Fatimah) extract

Kacip fatimah is a flowering plant that grows in the tribal area of Malaysia. The leaves are dark green and it thrives in shady places. Our wildcrafted Kacip Fatimah from the peninsula of Malaysia is licensed for harvesting once a year to preserve sustainability, prevent deforestation and protect the minority tribe called the Orang Asli, the indigenous people who live there. Their unique cultural heritage, religion, and belief in nature is inspiring. Medicinally, Southeast Asia has used the leaf extraction as a post-partum medication and an anti-estrogenic deficiency and -immunodeficiency diseases fighter. Kacip Fatima contains a high presence of phyto-estrogen (plant estrogen) especially isoflavones, which can act as an antiaging agent in the skin through the estrogen receptors or through increased production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and extracellular protein matrix. Also, phytoestrogens can increase the vascularization of skin and prevent the skin from experiencing oxidative stress and apoptosis. Apart from its outstanding plant estrogen, kacip Fatimah also possesses some anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties as well.

Tamarind Extract

The tamarind is a long living medium-growth tree which attains a maximum crown height of 40 to 60 feet. The fruit has been used in Thai culinary for centuries. There are two types of tamarind, sour tamarind, which is used as a replacement for lime or vinegar in a curry or cold salad, and sweet tamarind which is eaten as fruit. High in fiber, Tamarind aids digestion and is used as a laxative in Traditional Thai Medicine. Dubbed “botanical hyaluronic acid” the seed of tamarind contains a high level of xyloglucans, a type of polysaccharide (sugar) with highly effective wound-healing properties that help improve the processes of re-epithelialization and the remodeling of skin cells. Moreover, xyloglucan is considered to be a plant polymer that can create a film thereby forming a protective barrier on the skin to prevent bacterial adherence and moisture loss. It therefore, hydrates, plumps and smoothens the skin and fine lines. It is one of the vital ingredients in our best skin hydrating essence Yen Heal & Hydrate Essence Toner.

Love Story

Deep in Eastern Asia, the walls within a small bamboo cabin are lined with glass jars containing dry herbs. Each jar labeled with a hand written note of its properties and healing powers.

At some point in ancient times, the knowledge of plants and their synergies was discovered and began to be passed along for generations — I was fortunate to inherit some of that wisdom.

As a child I witnessed how certain plant combinations were synergistic and provided amazing healing capabilities. To me it was magical. As a result, I longed to create a powerful formula to share with you that would capture the carefully cultivated wisdom and power of the indigenous plants.

After a few years of formulating, finally, Yen was born. Yen is a testament to plant synergies and how plants can combine and transform – a completely self-efficient product that promotes a healthy foundation for your skin and creates a portal to reconnect you with your inner values.

  1. Sinziana

    “Of all your amazing products, I am perhaps most deeply in love with Yen. I am someone who has always skipped toners, seeing them as superfluous and with little tangible benefits for my skin. My view has been turned upside down by Yen, which is undeniably is one of the most incredibly healing and hydrating products ever to grace my skin. I love it and treat my sample like the liquid gold it is. Yen Heal and Hydrate Toner is another brilliant, transformative product that will amaze those lucky enough to try it.” – Anne

  2. Sinziana

    “I have been suffering from hormonal cystic acne, and I had just about given up on there being any topical solution… and then I used my sample of Yen. I saw amazing healing literally overnight. Yen outperformed every medicinal product I own. I never would have expected a toner to be the answer to my prayers, but it has been. Yen is a miraculous product, and I never want to be without it.” – Melissa

  3. Sinziana

    “I love the toner so much, it’s just incredible. You’ve formulated something really special!! And most important can I please order immediately!!! It’s like heaven on my skin, fixing some major dryness and breakout issues I thought I was going to be dealing with for days after a long international flight, lots of stress and no sleep. I don’t want to have to go even a day without using it when my trial size runs out.” – Tiffany

  4. Sinziana

    “I love the hydration and the scent is uniquely beautiful and light. Kaelin also felt Yen really cooled down her skin inflammation much more than other toners she’s used. We can both really feel the unique thickness it offers on the skin, like the film you talk about, that sinks in after several seconds. The ingredient listing is drool-worthy.” – Holly and Kaelin

  5. Sinziana

    “I got the products this week and I want to tell you whatever is in the little yellow spray is the best stuff I seen. I have scaled cracked skin from eczema that is painful and itches and in a few days it looks different, doesn’t itch and isn’t dry. What is that stuff and how much is it? Very good stuff.” – Roy

  6. Sinziana

    “This is my favorite toner! The consistency and scent is perfect… I have four or five bottles stocked!” – Brandi

  7. Sinziana

    “My must have toner!” – Mirna

  8. Sinziana

    “New to me and completely in love. Thick like a milky essence, smells like cucumber and herbs.” – Shannon

  9. Sinziana

    “Yen toner has a yummy, thick consistency that smells like mangosteen and passionfruit had an earthy baby. The texture is so thick and nourishing. With this, I don’t need to use a serum after and can go straight to oil/moisturizer. This product is available at many clean beauty retailers and is a definite re-purchase.” – Reagan

  10. Sinziana

    “It’s an absolute beautiful product! It balances my oiliness and really helps my skin glow. It’s like a toner/serum hybrid. And has too many beautiful ingredients to talk about them all… If you are searching for a hydrating toner that will bring out the natural glow of your skin, consider this one. I hope that your skin will love its healing properties as much as mine does.” – Ashley

  11. Sinziana

    “This is basically a serum in a bottle and is perfect for the dry, harsh winter months. I’m about to purchase my fourth bottle of this.” – Lydiadeliria

  12. Sinziana

    “Yen is my favorite toner to use AM. This toner is very hydrating, healing and nourishing.” – Jingjing

  13. Sinziana

    “I love Yen. I use it as a standalone or mixing it with the Twilight serum or other face oils. I’ve tried so many others and still love to try new toners or facial mists, but I always come back to the Yen toner… I just opened a new bottle after a month of taking a break to try out other products, and the first use was like taking a deep breath after a long drive. The hydration and moisture that Yen gives is incomparable in my opinion. The thick and wholesome texture is amazing. It has a strong scent, but the good thing is that it does not linger. Please don’t ever stop making it.” – Aleksandra

  14. Sinziana

    “This toner is so great! Especially for inflamed skin.” – Tonya

  15. Sinziana

    “Absolutely fantastic and exactly what my dry, sensitive skin needs for fall/winter months. This toner is packed full of very effective herbal ingredients (no fillers) and is much more moisturizing and rebalancing than other toners/facial mists that I’ve tried that mainly consist of water/hydrosol with a humectant. The aloe in this feels much higher quality than other similar sprays that contain aloe. It is a great first step after cleansing and allows for moisture to be added back to the skin before sealing in with a face oil. The smell is a very lush, tropical floral. Really perfect for dry skin and cold weather.” – Maya T.

  16. Sinziana

    “I’m a believer! I wasn’t sure about this when it first came in my BH box. I was concerned the fragrance might bother me so I used it sporadically at first. Then I started using it every morning as part of my routine and I am in love with this stuff. The more I use it the more I appreciate the fast hydration it provides, the scent doesn’t linger and is actually lovely and my skin LOVES it. I think when I run out of this I will definitely repurchase just because it really seems to calm my skin and soothe it like no other toner I’ve used.You add a few drops of your favorite serum or oil to the mix and it’s skin nirvana.” – Alisha Q.

  17. Sinziana

    “Soothing bliss. I was so excited when I received this item in my first beauty heroes box-but got nervous when I saw the wheat ingredient on listing— I don’t eat gluten because of sensitivity to wheat and a family who suffers with celiac, but despite concern I went on to test – and ultimately feel more than just comfortable -on to pure enjoyment while using this toner. I use about a spray and half in hand and tap all over face. Has a really unique scent of cucumber and a uncommon combination of warm, (sweet bean-y) herbal, earthy very slightly floral scent. It feels cooling and slightly tacky to the feel – in a good way. It seems to really grab in the serums and products than follow the toner application. My skin is combination and prone to breakouts – this is definitely one of my favorite soothing, extremely effective products. So glad to have discovered this brand. Total game changer.” – Erin V.

  18. Sinziana

    “My fave toner for spot-prone skin. I tried this after receiving it in the monthly box. I used to use another natural toner for spotty skin that I was faithful to for years, but after using it for a few weeks this is my new favourite. It calms and hydrates like it promises on the bottle and plays well with makeup in the daytime and is the prefect prep for the balm from Siam Seas in the nighttime. I spray it into my hands and press it on. I think it’s expensive, but with skin that is so reactive, it’s worth investing in when it works so well.” – Marissa M.

  19. Sinziana

    “I wish I could give this 10 stars! I don’t know where to start with this review. This product is just beautiful- the story, the bottle, the scent, the feeling… everything. There is nothing I would change about this product. It’s definitely one of my all time favorites now. I seriously will have to keep this product in my beauty routine forever. I’m in my late 30s (minimal lines/ no wrinkles) with sensitive (reactive), combination (oily t-zone with larger pores, normal cheeks) sometimes hormonal acne, blemishes here and there type skin. I love what Yen does for my skin. It’s a toner/serum (and with this glorious consistency it will never be a mist- and I’m happy about that!). I simply spray two pumps into my hands and gently do a little rub-then-pat motion on to my face and neck. AHHHH. Delicious. Since utilizing Yen into my skin regime, I’ve been using less of my other products (serums, oils, lotions). Therefore, I’m saving more money not having to replace products as fast. I just love it so much!” – Melissa R.

  20. Sinziana

    “I had Siam SEAS BeCalm serum before I got this beauty box and I love it. I am 24 and have hormonal acne, large pores and oily skin. I usually stay away from “hydrating” products because my skin needs more balancing than hydrating, but WOW am I glad this was the full size product. It’s my absolute favorite part of my nighttime routine. it smells delightful and makes you legitimately GLOW. I spray 2-3 pumps into my hand, rub around, then pat into my skin. Gosh dang, this stuff is good. Siam seas hasn’t totally cleared my acne but it has DEFINITELY soothed it x100000. This will forever be a staple in my skincare routine just because of how luxurious and healing it is. 11/10 recommend.” – Courtney Y.

  21. Sinziana

    “Love it! Love the scent with a passion, love the feel, love the effect on my skin. It’s a very good first layer of skincare for your skin!” – Chloe B.

  22. Sinziana

    “Love at first SHOT. You have to spray this into your hand to apply- I put some in a travel size sprayer and found it to come out of that the same way so it must be the consistency of the product rather than the spray nozzle. HOWEVER this is my new favorite product! It is so soothing, doesn’t irritate my reactive skin, and seriously moisturizes and improves skin texture. I react to just about everything and I find this product to have a lovely minimal scent…herbal and cucumbery, and it doesn’t bother me in the least nor has my skin had an adverse reaction to it. The packaging is gorgeous but I referred to the website for instructions as it’s a bit difficult to read. I do think i’ve fallen in love for life :).” – Christine S.

  23. Sinziana

    “My New Must Have. Within days of using this product my skin was hydrated, soothed, and glowing. I’ve never used a facial spray that I felt this way about before. Definitely going to repurchase.” – Laura W.

  24. Sinziana

    “Great toner/hydration serum. I’ve never felt the need to use toners, so I was pleased that this one provides such long-lasting hydration that it is more of a hydrating serum with a similar finish to Honua’s Aloha Beauty Serum. The fragrance is strong but not overpowering and is a very lovely, powdery oriental-type scent. It does not linger too long after application, maybe 5-10 minutes at most.” – Laura L.

  25. Sinziana

    “Magic in a bottle. This product has been working so great for my skin. I have semi oily skin and some small break outs around the jawline here and there. Since I’ve used this, I’ve has no new breakouts form. The glow it gives my skin is like I went on a full juice cleanse. It gives that same glow. I love this product and the smell of it too. It has a smell I can’t describe because I’ve never smelt it before until this product. It is pleasing though. Floral and creamy at the same time. I love it!” – Sarah S.

  26. Sinziana

    “Really liking this! I have enjoyed using this and I can see a difference in my skin. My skin feels soft and is definitely hydrated from what it was before. I love the scent!” – Shelley S.

  27. Sinziana

    “Divine. This is the best facial spray I have ever used: very hydrating and soothing for my dry and sensitive skin, and the scent: It is just divine. I will definitely repurchase.” – Julia T.

  28. Sinziana

    “This is a sophisticated toner with some serious soothing and hydration capabilities. It has a very unique and beautiful scent, sort of wildflowery and grassy.” – Sonia R.

  29. Sinziana

    “Obsessed. This aloe gel and turmeric toner reminds me of a Korean essence. It’s so juicy and plumping. I just spray into my hands and pat on my skin. If it’s humid, it works as my moisturizer. So good for my dehydrated skin!” – MissMack

  30. Sinziana

    “Magical. This toner is magical!! I must say I used the toner a year ago but did not really realize how effective and amazing it is until I started using it again! It’s very gentle, soothing and helps repair and protect skin barrier… I use the Seas balm and Twilight serum with this toner and the best part is the toner can be used standalone on very hot days:):) the scent is just beautiful like in a flower garden. Thanks Farah and Supadra!!!!!” – Bhavani

  31. Sinziana

    “This toner is divine. The smell alone is therapeutic but as an airport shift worker I delight in anything that helps provide protection from the environment and pollutants. I spray it on my hand and pat it on my face before and/or after oil/balm. It really is very versatile as I would use it in summer instead of a serum which would make it especially great for traveling too. This range is just incredible.” – Irina

  32. Sinziana

    “The Yen toner? Really more of an essence, which is yet another product I don’t usually jump to because I just love the experience of misting my face. Proven wrong again. Amazing ingredients, addictive sent just like the cleanser, super hydrating. I finished the 50ml and didn’t even play around when I went to repurchase and got the 100ml.” – Shannon

  33. Amy Day

    I have never found a toner that I liked, they all seemed to do nothing and they usually had some sort of fragrance on top of doing nothing that irritated me and seemed unnatural, so I always skipped it. This one is amazing though. It feels very light, super natural and it seems like it really does help my skin absorb more moisture. Even my daughter told it’s one of her favorite products as she has been coming in my bathroom and borrowing my products. I never skip my Yen toner.
