After many years of dreaming and tireless work, we can finally take a
deep breath and feel that everything we learned so far, which we fought for and
which we stand for with our whole being, is about to be born. For us this is an
incredibly strong and exciting moment.
I started experimenting with skincare potions as a child in the form of
playing with my most beloved person in the world – my Grandma Ruskha. I will
never forget our moments together when we carefully cut different fruits and
vegetables, drained them and made beautifying masks. It was our ritual. When
I played outside after rain, my favorite game was to make mud masks.
I spent most of my childhood in the hair salon where my mother was
working. There I was observing the magic of beautification. I was very keen to
watch the moments before, during, and after, as well as the positive emotions,
self-esteem and happiness experienced by the ladies after the 30 minutes they have
spared for themselves. I was 10-12 years old, but I experimented boldly what I
learned, or rather, seen, on my friends – hair removal, haircuts, blow-outs, hair
coloration, curling, you name it. I was the beauty master…or at least I thought
My interest faded when growing up because the game time was over. I had
to focus on my educational and professional interests. What I did not forget was
the magic to take care of yourself and the emotion it brought to people.
This is how the dream of Ruskha Skincare was born, which we accomplished
together with Joro Plachkov and our team of professionals. Throughout the road,
we were led by the desire to bring joy, self-esteem, balance, and results. We
chose to create 100% natural products without a single drop of synthetics and
to incorporate extremely potent ingredients from nature. The final formulas are
the result of numerous experiments, studies and countless consultations with
professionals from various fields - botany, chemistry, biology, dermatology,
holistic medicine, etc. Each part of the formulas is designed to be universally
applicable - not to be irritating to sensitive skin, not to be comedogenic to
acne-prone skin, our products do not contain nut oils and extracts for people
with allergies, and our line can also be used by future and nursing mothers.
We emphasize on active ingredients in our formulations - ingredients
that are innovative, high-tech and laboratory-tested. We've been testing the
finals products on ourselves, on our friends and families, to make sure we can
offer to you, our customers, something truly effective.
What we can promise is that we will not stop developing, exploring and
offering only the best. We are working on new products that will complement the
beauty ritual and will bring extraordinary feelings to the user.
The substances you place on your skin penetrate your body. If you do
not believe this claim, think about the nicotine patches that people wear to
help them stop smoking, as well as menopausal women who are regularly
prescribed hormonal patches. This means that you potentially expose your body
to a whole range of chemicals without fully knowing what the effects they can
have on it.
Much of the traditional cosmetics abounds with 'fillers'.
These are ingredients that are of no value to your skin - parabens, dyes,
artificial fragrances, silicones, emulsifiers and oils derived from
petrochemicals. They are added to make the product cheaper, to last longer (virtually
eternal) and to be more attractive, but some reports show that some of these
chemicals can be found in engine degreasers and as well as in the antifreeze.
Who wants to put antifreeze on his face?
More active ingredients
Active ingredients are what makes a cosmetic product effective. They are
extremely expensive and are often a result from high-tech developments. In
traditional cosmetics, the choice of active ingredients is a marketing trick
and their incorporation is at a very low percentage in the
formula. At Ruskha we do not 'save' from active ingredients because
our main pillar is to produce efficient products.
Many people with sensitive skin accept the fact that they cannot use skincare products purchased from the store. Even people with normal skin can find that they get
rashes when they try out a new product. This is most often caused by a chemical
reaction. Although it is possible to be allergic to certain natural ingredients
- nuts and strawberries are two typical examples - it is easier to determine
what is causing your skin reaction if you can fully understand the ingredient
list of your product.
Organic products are produced using ingredients that are grown without
the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. This makes them better for
your body and better for our planet.
'Feed' your face
Our products contain ingredients that “nourish” your skin with vital
substances, so there are not only promises but results. Many products simply
cover the skin with a layer of synthetic additives or attack it aggressively
with a cocktail of chemicals.
If you carefully choose your skin care products
you contribute to a more socially responsible lifestyle. Organic products are
produced without harming the environment, animals or other people.
1. Few things can look good without being taking care of. Start taking
care of your skin, because if you cause irreversible damage to it, you will not
have a chance for a new one. Do not forget about your skincare regimen, even
when you are very tired or busy.
2. Cleaning and exfoliation is an important and indispensable part of
your regimen. There is a lot of dirt attached to the skin from the environment
in which you are - dust, particles of urban pollution, dead cells, make-up
remnants, and so on. To prepare your skin for the product which will nourish
your skin (whether for hydration, rejuvenation and / or your skin glow), it must be
well cleaned. Products put on clean skin are more efficient and easier to reach
the lower layers of the skin. That is why we recommend our 'Skin Awakening Cleanser' as a first step. It exfoliates without drying the skin out.
Then, put your bet on 'Concentrated Youth Elixir', which is a

4. Be patient with the cosmetics you use. There are no miraculous potions
which give results right away. The only initial result you can feel when
changing a product is only sensory, ie. to judge how it smells or how it is
applied. Most active ingredients require at least 2-4 weeks to show results.
5. Hydration is an extremely important step for radiant skin. Drink at
least 2-3 liters of water every day.
6. Skin is often a mirror of what's happening in your body. It may be
dry or prematurely aged because you do not take enough fluids, vitamins or
minerals. Consume unlimited raw and ripe fruits and vegetables, as well as
leafy plants such as lettuce, spinach and more. Always choose clean, organic
products whenever possible. Strive raw fruits and vegetables to be present in
every meal, and at least one meal of your daily menu should be from only raw
fruits, vegetables and leafy greens.
7. You are what you eat. Do not be fast, cheap, easy or artificial.
Waffles, burgers, carbonated beverages and any highly processed food do not
have a place in your mouth if you want to have healthy and young-looking skin.
8. Sports is a unique means of improving blood circulation and favoring

10. Take the necessary dose of sleep every day.
There is no better 'ingredient' for beautiful skin than good sleep.
