The Five Element Line
5 Seasons 5 Elements 5 Sets of Skin Conditions 5 Basic Emotions
The five element line is "energetic" meaning it treats both matter and unseen vital energy because for true holistic beauty and vitality, we must recognize that the body is not only matter but vital energy almost equally so.
All products in the the five element lines (except for shampoo and conditioner) are quantum energetic (high vibrational. This means the benefits received from the Elemental line products will be even more remarkable as healing agents than our already outstanding energetic line was before.
This is at once an ancient concept and a very modern one demonstrated today by quantum physics. To understand the quantum healing concept, Deepak Chopra says it perfectly in Grow Younger, Live Longer:
Your body is a field of energy, information, and intelligence… capable of perpetual healing, renewal and transformation.
The “5” in PHYTO5 stands for its five element lines. "PHYTO" means our products are formulated with unique, natural, premium-grade plant-based ingredients—the result of integrating ancestral knowledge from traditional Chinese medicine with leading edge Swiss research.
These lines are formulated in harmony with each one of the five elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. The Elemental line follows TCM’s five groups of skin conditions, energetic seasons, and emotions.
The concept is simple and at the same time very personalized for you:
If your skin is balanced, keep it balanced by using the products of the current energetic season which is always shown near the top of every page of this website.
If you have a particular skin condition, meaning it is out of balance, use the products of the element that address the condition. The elements and skin conditions are shown in the left column of this page and also here.
