Revolutionary Skincare by YonKa Paris
YonKa Paris is a company that prides itself on its natural approach. Founded near Paris in 1954 by botanists Charles and Ernest Muhlethaler, the company got its start by perfecting a new process for stabilizing essential oils in water to form a usable emulsion. They chose name YonKa by making a combination of Yon, a fast-flowing river of purifying water, and Ka, the mythological Egyptian principle of regeneration.
YonKa Skincare's cruelty-free product line is unique in that they are based primarily on aromatherapy and phytotherapy with the goal of providing skin with the maximum benefits of plant and marine extracts. Most products are composed of at least 90 per cent naturally-derived ingredients, and many feature YonKa's signature Quintessence formula, which combines 5 synergistic essential oils to reduce inflammation and to tone and rejuvenate skin.
With a wide range of personalized treatments for varying skin types (including a line formulated specifically for men), YonKa is especially well-known for their age correction and hydrating treatments, which utilize alpha hydroxy acids from fruit to eliminate dead skin cells and promote cell regeneration in order to make skin look fresher and more youthful. Their cleansers are also popular for their gentleness, which leaves skin feeling clean and fresh but not dry or tight. All of their products have the goal of correcting skin imbalances gently and efficiently.
