The Yon-Ka Way: The Meaning of Clean, The Feeling of Pure


According to the December 2021 Global Wellness Summit, the global wellness economy was valued at $4.9 trillion in 2019 and then fell to $4.4 trillion in 2020, due to the widespread impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. There were many dimensions of wellness growth that faltered somewhat, but the personal care and beauty element did not, as it topped out at $955 billion. The wellness/personal care industry is one that highlights the few brands using the purest ingredients. And this industry showed that such growth is due to one concept: that mind-body personal care is tantamount to the concept of wellness. One feels well when one looks well, and vice versa.

There are few brands that have been in existence long enough to understand this concept of mind/body connectivity, using the knowledge that plant based products, created from natural elements, are better for cleansing the body, offer a natural skin exfoliator and creating a new sense of wholeness to mind/body harmony.

Yon-Ka is one of these brands.

As pioneers in aromatherapy since 1954, and with an understanding of the need for therapeutic plant property use from around the world, the Multaler Laboratories created Yon-Ka Phyto-aromatic treatments, encapsulating the power of Nature using sensorial formulas, and delivering proven efficacy and visible results.

The Yon-Ka brand is deeply involved in the idea that beauty and wellness lie in mind/body harmony. Thus, they have developed each treatment as a unique, multi-sensory and deeply personal experience. With these treatments, the mind revitalizes and reconnects with the body and environment, allowing a rediscovery of pleasurable living.

It is also one of those unique brands, Paris-based whose vision is embedded in its name:

Life-giving river with its cleansing waters, and phonetic link ION, or energy particle.

The part of eternity found in every being in ancient Egypt.

Together form a symbol of infinite rejuvenation.

Since Yon-Ka laboratories first launched, the company has pioneered the production of cutting-edge aromatherapy and phytotherapy formulas, merging botany, scientific innovation,  with wellness, and beauty.

The owners of Yon-Ka are sisters from France, and one is an aesthetician and the other a biochemist, creating a perfect product balance of science and sensuality.

Today, Yon-Ka is present in 55 countries Since Yon-Ka laboratories first launched in 1954, the company has pioneered the production of cutting-edge aromatherapy and phytotherapy formulas that merge botany, scientific innovation, wellness, and beauty.

Now, in an era of artifice, where beauty is often defined by botulism toxins, it is good to know that true spring cleaning – a  green exfoliation of the skin–can be accomplished by using plant extracts to repair the infrastructure of the skin, through remineralization, hydration, nurturance, and cellular repair and strengthening. Longevity is also included, through the use of telomere protections and ATP synthesis.

To that end, Yon-Ka is also one of the rare brands that has created Five Key Commitments: lasting promises, and motivations to maintain their brand, dedicated to the mind/body wellness of the client.
