5YINA was born from the art of being and the science of life.
Motivated by our passion as trained herbalists, we are on a mission to create revolutionary, clean products founded on the holistic principles of Chinese Medicine. Our products are formulated to promote your well-being through mind, body, and spirit.
As practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), we believe wellness and beauty are inherently intertwined. By integrating the wisdom of Chinese Medicine and modern science, we created a skincare collection that is effective and in harmony with nature.
Our beauty rituals go beyond caring for the skin; they help ground energy, enhance our self-healing capacity, and reconnect us to the flow of nature.
“Our skin is a reflection of our internal health. Growing up eating seasonal herbal soups has shown me the amazing healing properties of Chinese herbs.”

“As a cancer survivor, I personally witnessed the power of Chinese herbs - the effects are so profound that we had to create a skincare ritual based on the holistic principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine.”
Ervina Wu received her doctorate in TCM with emphasis in dermatology from Zhejiang Chinese Medical University. Her passion in medicine, travel, and beauty made her a master collaborator in product formulations and branding of the company.
