Hi, my name is Ieva, in this shop you will find handmade natural, organic and vegan skin, body and hair care products developed and made by me.
My brand Quincessentials focuses on the utilization of the Japanese Quince since it is one of the most underutilized fruit species with great potential when it comes to available bio active compounds in our Baltic region. My company is fully licensed for the production of cosmetic products and all of our products are registered according to international law.
I am in charge of research and product development. I have a background in the health and cosmetics industry, hold bachelor and master degrees in biology and neuro-biology and a PHD for my research on “quince biologically active substances and quince waste free processing technology development.” This research has proven the excellent properties of Quince derived materials for skin and health care applications.
This studies and its research results have shown a great opportunity for us to develop natural, organic, sustainable and healthy skin care products based on locally abundant resources.

I hope you enjoy our products and if you have any questions about any of the products or if you need some personalized skincare advice feel free to contact me.
What is Quincessentials
Quincessentials is a natural product research, development and production company under Alcula Group UAB. We develop, produce and market zero waste plant based products, in particular using the fruit of the quince.
Quincessentials are taking purity and efficacy to a new level by using the highest quality, artisan ingredients. With 100% organic materials sourced directly from organic farms and certified organic suppliers, for handcrafted products with love, integrity and unparalleled purity

Quince is one of the most under-utilized species of fruit in our region. Quince contains a group of nutrients that have a positive benefit to human health. All parts of the quince develop various antioxidant types that protect the body from oxidative stress, a cause of diseases and skin disorders.
Scientific and clinical studies have already demonstrated the potential of quince in pharmaceutical products. The use of quince helps to protect the skin from the harmful effects of the environment while lending itself to environmentally friendly processing technologies.

Why isn’t Quincessentials organically certified?
Since we don’t necessarily always agree with the governing bodies, we find the idea of paying them to use their symbol for marketing purposes unappealing. In regard to certifications in general, we are sure there must be some with integrity, but that search to find one hasn’t been a priority for us yet.
The materials used in our products are natural and local where possible. In many cases, we know our individual farmers and don’t just trust a certifier. Each ingredient is selected on its properties based on scientific research. We believe our standards are above and beyond any certification that we’ve come across.
Natural Product Research and Development is a cutting-edge life science for the development of products. Through utilization of contemporary science and technology with a strong focus on organic plant, animal, microbial, biological polymers and other natural resource products. For further resource identification, extraction, analysis , modification or synthesis, by means of research, through published papers, lab trails, reviews or reports, development trends, etc. All this subject across biology, chemistry, biochemistry and pharmacology, from basic theory to the application of the latest technology.
We will report the latest results of natural product research and development with regard to the use of natural materials in our products, and promote academic exchange. To strengthen research, development, production processes and communication with strategic, forward-looking and innovative partners. Towards future technological achievements in order to promote our health and sustainability. To go to our research blog, click here.
