Katie May, Founder of Yin Yang Skincare

Katie May is the founder of Yin Yang Skincare and with over 40 years of designing and formulating pure botanical products, Katie continues to drive the style and development of our products.

Katie's interest in skincare began at the very start of the 1970s, when after a first career in the aviation sector, working on the Concorde project, Katie embarked on a two year programme focused on the use of plant materials and fermentation techniques in the food sector. As she came to understand the techniques that could release valuable amino acids from plant proteins, Katie realised that here was a technology that could be incorporated into skincare products, to nourish the young skin cells with the very building blocks of all protein. An interest in essential oils and herbs and their production in organic farming systems followed, and from this fusion the Yin Yang range of products was created.

Based at Beechgrove Herb Garden on the Oxfordshire Gloustershire borders, Katie continues to research the science of botanical actives in the care of the skin. If you have queries about caring for your skin or questions about Yin Yang products, Katie would be happy to hear from you: email her at
