ABOUT OUR FUNDAMENTAL CHOICE FOR NATURAL ACTIVES
Pioneer and visionary, Yon-Ka's expertise in aromatherapy, aromachology, phytotherapy and gemmotherapy has been recognized for more than 60 years.
Since its creation, Yon-Ka has chosen to always use natural actives, plant extracts, essential oils and ingredients issued from biotechnologies, as long as they deliver the same efficacy as other ingredients with the same purpose.
SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINE FOR QUALITY RESULTS
Yon-Ka is a firm believer in a rigorous scientific approach to achieve the best quality, efficacy and safety for its products.
From concept to manufacturing, Yon-Ka ensures the perfect control of the production process and full traceability. Each ingredient is carefully selected and controlled. The production takes place in a clean-room environment conform with pharmaceutical standards (with filtered air and abiding by the ISO 22716 rules)
EFFECTIVENESS AND VISIBLE RESULTS
Yon-Ka’s Research & Development is totally geared towards achieving fast and visible results. It relies on an in-house scientific experts committee (including PhD pharmacists, dermatologists, biologists, chemical engineers, bacteriologists…) and rigorous standards for the clinical evaluation of the efficacy of the products marketed.
PROFESSIONAL EXPERTISE - THE ART OF TOUCH
Yon-Ka has developed the most advanced manual and instrumental techniques. We are firm believers that the hand, sometimes helped with equipment, will always remain the finest judge of the skin and mind conditions.
Our exclusive techniques are shared by the brand with the large family that are the Yon-Ka professionals.
THE QUEST FOR HARMONY AND SENSORIALITY
At Yon-Ka, we believe that pleasure and efficacy must complement each other in order to create the most favourable treatment conditions. Therefore, the sensorial aspect of our treatments is at the core of all our protocols. Our rituals are designed to be providing true skin care ceremonies.
Because the skin radiance also comes from within, harmony and balance are the cornerstone of Yon-Ka's philosophy: tensions are relieved, the energies rebalance and mind and body are united again in underlying wellbeing.
YON-KA IS COMMITTED TO ENSURE THE QUALITY AND THE SAFETY OF ITS PRODUCTS
Our formulas rigorously abide by international rules and regulations, which become more and more strict when it comes to public health, and that are ruled and controled with the relevant authorities.
Our production processes are done under filtered air and respect the ISO 22716 GMP standards (Good Manufacturing Process). They minimize handling and air contact in order to secure optimal quality and safety.
We carefully formulate, manufacture, control and distribute all the products we sell, which allows us to ensure a total traceability from the raw material to the end-product at its retail destination.
Before beeing released for launch to the market, each Yon-Ka product is tested for its safety through:
- In-vitro tolerance tests and following recognized alternative methods which exclude all tests on animals,
- In-vivo tolerance tests under the control of an Research Doctor.
YON-KA SUPPORTS THE FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER
As Yon-Ka has always been drawing its inspiration in women's beauty and their needs, it seemed quite natural to us to support the research to cure breast cancer. For this purpose we fund the association "Le Cancer du sein, Parlons-en” (“Breast Cancer: Let’s talk about it”).
Indeed, during Pink October, Yon-Ka launches donation campaigns. In October 2018, for each Yon-Ka purchased, 1 € was donated to the association: "Le Cancer du sein, Parlons-en”(“Breast Cancer: Let’s talk about it”)
By doing so, Yon-Ka endeavours to help promote awareness amongst women regarding the importance of early screening which can save thousands of lives.
YON-KA TAKES ACTION FOR THE PROTECTION OF NATURE
Yon-Ka is committed to not using endangered plants or vegetals and/or that are essential food resources of local populations and/or necessary to their wellbeing.
In addition, Yon-Ka helps sponsor the implementations of beehives with the Association “Un Toit pour les Abeilles” (A Shelter for Bees”), in order to help support bees populations and combat the alarming loss of pollinating insects.
YON-KA TAKES ACTION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
When it comes to its packaging, Yon-Ka uses carton-board from trees that are managed and handled in a sustainable manner by a Swedish company which belongs in the top 100 most sustainably oriented companies in the world, according to the rating of the United Nations Worldwide pact.
Yon-Ka favours the cooperation with suppliers also committed to respect the pact of Protection of traditional indigenous knowledge especially when relating to biological and organic resources.
