Meet YASOU Skincare

May 10, 2019 | Vendor SpotlightComments 0



Summer at the West Lake Market is just around the corner! We conducted a Q&A with one of our exclusive vendors, YASOU Skincare!


Q: How long has your business been around and how did it start? 


A: I started about 6 years ago but actually launched about 5 years ago. I started from combining many things that were going on with me personally at the time.  For one, I wasn’t happy at my corporate job anymore, and I was yearning to reconnect with my Greek heritage because I had distanced myself from it at a young age. I also noticed a need to have a product that was filled with high quality ingredients that was really good for you, but also felt like the high-end products in the department store; a luxe wellness product.  My husband suggested I put everything together and do it myself, so that’s how it all started! 


Q: What are you most excited to share with West Lake Market shoppers? 


A: I’d like to share that YASOU hydrating body cream has recently been Environmental Working Group verified.  EWG VERIFIED™ recognizes products that meet the organization’s strictest standards for consumer health related to exclusion of toxic chemicals and corporate accountability.  I’d like West Lake Market shoppers to know that providing high quality ingredients is of the utmost importance to me!


Q: What’s your all-time favorite product from your business?


A: This is such a tough question because I really love all of them! I can’t live without my vegan night cream. Or my vegan lip elixir!


Q: When you’re not working, where can we find you (or what can we find you doing)?


A: I love to hang with my two best buddies: my husband Ray and my dog Buddy.  Love long walks and going to the movies!


Q: What has been the most rewarding part of your business?


A: The most rewarding part is hearing from people who tell me how much YASOU has helped them. Some have gone through Chemo and YASOU Hydrating Body Cream Aroma Free has kept their skin healthy during this process, or when someone with skin sensitivities tells me that YASOU doesn’t give them a reaction. I also love when someone tells me how good they feel after applying one of YASOU’s creams.  I love knowing that I have created something that is luxe and good for you and your skin!
