Creating the Perfect Natural Healthy Skin Care
We all know that we should be taking care of our skin – both men and women alike. Having clear, vibrant, youthful-looking skin is a desire we all have. But, taking good care of our skin is more than just a “looking good” issue, it’s also a health issue. It isn’t uncommon to hear about the risks and dangers of skin cancer these days. The most important thing we can do is to protect our skin adequately, everyday, after cleansing and nourishing (moisturizing). Because it is an organ it needs food to function, and doesn’t it deserve the best nourishment and care?
UNIQUE FEATURES OF KANDESN SKIN CARE AND COSMETICS
SQUALANE BASE! (from 100% Virgin Olive Oil)
- Kandesn is the only line of skin care and cosmetics using SQUALANE as a base.
- Squalane comes from 100% Virgin Olive Oil
- Note - Squalene – with an “e” – comes from whales and is NOT what Dr. Chen uses
- Squalane chemistry matches the skin’s own sebum oil so it can be absorbed to moisturize and nourish the skin and allow the skin to breathe.
- There are NO mineral or lanolin oils in Kandesn. Mineral oils lubricate, they do not moisturize. Mineral Oils do NOT allow the skin to breathe.
- 99% of all cosmetics are mineral oil based – this CLOGS PORES.
- Squalane costs $100.00 per pound – mineral oil costs .50 cents per pound and “Pig Grease” costs pennies per pound.
NO INGREDIENTS DERIVED FROM ANIMALS AND NO ANIMAL TESTING!
NUTRIENTS FOR THE SKIN
- Kandesn contains herbal extracts rich in nutrients that can be absorbed and utilized by the skin.
- healthy skin needs to be nourished but it cannot digest herbs like our stomach can.
- Ground herbs in other skin care products will do nothing for the skin.
- Sunrider extraction techniques put herbal nutrients into a usable form for skin absorption.
REGENERATION OF SKIN
- Kandesn provides the moisturizers and nutrients needed to regenerate the skin.
- Aging skin is degenerating.
- Poor skin care practice and products will degenerate skin.
- Healthy, young looking skin needs Kandesn as much as problem skin.
- Skin is naturally acidic (5.5 to 6.5 on pH scale) and requires acidic products like Kandesn.
- Germs and bacteria cannot grow in acid conditions (natural protection)
- Alkaline products strip the skin’s natural protection, exposing it to dehydration and stimulating excessive oil production (combination skin)
- All soaps and most skin care products are alkaline or neutral.
- Kandesn is one of the few products which are truly acidic.
Kandesn Cleansing Cream

Alpha Hydroxy Acids
Several of the Oi-Lin Signature Line products contain plant-derived Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), which is one of the hottest ingredients on the market, encouraging new cell growth. While it can be found in many other competitive products, it should be pointed out that not all AHAs are created equal. There are four types of AHAs: lactic acid, citric acid, malic acid, and glycolic acid. The AHA complexes in the Oi-Lin products are extracted from sugar cane, citrus fruits, apples and green tea. Glycolic acid has the smallest molecular structure and therefore penetrates deeper. Kandesn’s AHAs are safe, balanced, and time released. Sunrider tests the different AHA compounds for efficacy and relative irritation and uses a carefully formulated blend of different types of AHA resulting in a 33% increase in cell renewal with no irritation. Tests have shown that to achieve that same level of cell renewal, any of the individual AHAs, used alone, will cause irritation. Other products like Retin A, Retinol, and Renova (prescription) have harsh side effects and thin the skin. OI LIN REBUILD CREAM in the Kandesn Line has the most AHAs. Benefits of Alpha Hydroxy Acid include:
· Exfoliates – breaks down glue that bonds old dead skin cells to the surface of the skin
· Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
· Clarifies and brightens skin
· Smoothes, softens skin
· Combats sun damage and photo-aging
The Kandesn Skin Care products are “Simply the Best” available anywhere for the best price! in particular, the Oi-Lin Signature Line is the “crème de la crème”. These products offer the best in exotic herbal and botanical extracts, as well as the latest in scientific and technological advances. Meticulous care is taken to create the products of the highest quality, using only pure and natural ingredients. Absolutely no animal testing or animal by-products are used in the development or manufacturing of any Kandesn product. All Kandesn skin care products are pH balanced to protect the skin, helping to form natural barriers against bacteria and environmental pollutants.
- Skin is the largest organ of the body
- Skin is an outside surface and protects our body
- Skin is part of our immune system, protecting our body from harmful bacteria, etc.
- Skin has an invisible protective barrier, called the “Acid Mantle”
- Acid Mantle protects skin from harmful bacteria, keeps moisture in, and keeps oil content in balance.
- Skin normally has a pH between 5.5 and 6.5
- If you want to have clearer skin, drink more. The body eliminates a lot of toxins and wastes through the skin. Drinking more Calli and Fortune Delight can really affect our skin in a positive way.
- Skin needs to breathe! – Skin has been called a “Third Kidney”. The body excretes as much Uric Acid through skin as through urine. “Breaking out” is an alternative method of eliminating these toxic wastes when skin is suffocating from mineral oil, lanolin, mink oil, Vaseline and “occluding” cosmetics.
pH BALANCE - ACID MANTLE
Skin should be at a pH of between 5.5 and 6.5, which is more Acid. Note that water is at 7.0 usually.
Ø Clinique Cleansing Bar rates at 10.0 on the pH Chart – extremely Alkaline
Ø If you have an 8.5 pH rating that is 100 times too strong.
Ø If it is 9.5 – 10.0 that is 1000 times more harsh on the skin.
