Scents to boost your mood

We at Kinoko believe that good thoughts are half of your skincare routine. By this we mean, that skincare is so much more than just the products that you apply on your face. It’s obvious that the products need to be good and contain nourishing, effective and healing ingredients that support skin’s own functions. Beyond that you need to have a good balance in your life. Just looking at the surface of the skin and treating it alone is not enough if your mind and soul are anxious and unhappy. Holistic skincare is overall well-being and happiness, including everything from your diet and social relationships to self-respect and confidence. 

One holistic approach that we value and wanted to provide in the Kinoko skincare line are scents and odours that have a positive effect on mind and body. Kinoko products include three pure and plant-based essential oils that each have their own healing properties. We want to offer a skincare ritual that treats your skin, body, mind and soul:
