Why YASOU Skin Care Does Not Add SPF to its Vegan Day Cream

YASOU natural skin care makes a conscious choice not to add SPF in our cellular day cream. Here are some reasons for why we made this decision.

1) YASOU cellular day cream is a water-based skin care product that works on a cellular level. That means it penetrates beyond the skin’s outer layer.

2) We want to keep the ingredients clean so they can enter the inner layers of the skin and do their job keeping skin healthy, smooth and resilient.

3) We believe that SPF should be the last layer of the skin care regime. To be effective against UVA and UVB rays, sunscreen must be reapplied every two hours. That’s right, sunscreen protection wears out after two hours. Who wants to reapply a face cream every two hours? That is not practical. For all day facial protection we recommend applying a powder sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.

4) During testing we found that putting SPF in our day cream made the texture uneven. We like a smooth glide that provides a good tactile experience.

5) SPF is in so many products now. Read your ingredient labels and make a decision on which product with SPF you like and which is practical for your lifestyle.

Below is an infographic from The American Academy of Dermatology on what to look for when selecting a sunscreen. Their list of frequently asked questions about sunscreen provides answers to common questions.

Check out the Environmental Working Group Skin Deep Sunscreen Guide for more information about sunscreens. Simple, practical solutions for protecting your face from the sun are to wear a hat and find some shade.

Use about half of a teaspoon of sunscreen on your face. Don’t forget your lips! The American Academy of Dermatology recommends applying an SPF of at least 15 to lips when spending time outdoors

Introducing The Best Natural Facial Oils To Hydrate, Protect & Rejuvenate Skin

Our skin tells a story. Sometimes it’s a dramatic show, sometimes a quiet tale.

act-1 ACT I: The Quest. What does skin crave? It wants antioxidants to act as protectors of surface layers and lock in moisture. Vitamins, minerals and fatty acids too. Sounds like what the stomach might want, but your skin needs nourishment too. Pure, natural oils contain properties good for your skin’s surface layers and also act as carriers delivering vital nutrients beneath the skin’s surface to a cellular level. The plot thickens. What are the most effective natural oils to hydrate, protect and restore skin?


Act-2 ACT II: Main Characters. We believe the star characters in the best skin story are certified organic extra virgin olive oil and certified organic jojoba oil. The CO extra virgin olive oil, referred to by some as “Liquid Gold” is a natural moisturizer. It contains fatty acids, including oleic acid that strengthens cell membranes and fights free radicals. Olive oil contains similar content to the oils that the skin produces naturally. It absorbs quickly and delivers vitamin E, a powerful anti-oxidant. Its anti-oxidant component is known to help protect against skin cancer. Hydroxytyrosol is a rare, powerful antioxidant found in olive oil and a key component in YASOU’s Calityl-O Complex.


CO Jojoba oil holds a chemical structure similar to our skin. Containing zinc and copper along with vitamins B and E it strengthens skin by carrying healthy ingredients deep into the skin. It also absorbs quickly. Known as the “Gold of the Desert” Jojoba oil is a liquid wax that is an excellent moisturizer. It penetrates the skin like no other natural oil. Coconut oil is a supporting actor in the story of beautiful skin. It’s a powerful moisturizer that helps restore dry skin. It supports skin tissue and helps eliminate dead skin cells. Containing vitamin E, it can help delay wrinkles.


Act-3 ACT III: The Dilemma. Which oil should you choose? How do you apply it? Is it messy? YASOU skin care products combine these oils so you don’t have to choose one over the other. Certified organic extra virgin olive oil and jojoba oil soothe and moisturize the skin. The oils form a protective barrier that traps moisture on your skin while vitamins, minerals and fatty acids promote elasticity and radiance. In YASOU day and night face creams these good for your skin oils carry other beneficial ingredients to your skin including extracts from grape seed, cucumber, fruits and green tea. To get all the benefits in a simple package order a YASOU skin care product.

If choosing to use a natural facial oil alone, apply a small amount before your moisturizer. Buy only cold pressed, unrefined, pure oils.


Act-4 ACT IV: The Story Doesn’t End. Always be ready. Natural facial oils help make-up stay in place. You’re on and you look great. Whatever happens, your skin will live happily ever after.
