One of our BFFs: Yon-Ka
Hey BFFs, welcome back to BFF Blog! Today we wanted to shine a spotlight on another one of our partners, Yon-ka! We will touch on a bit of background, who they are and some of the treatments we offer that focus on their products!
Yon-Ka is the combination of the 2 words:
Yon, representing energy and perpetual renewal.
Ka, the subtle healing energy inherent in every being, party of eternity.
Yon-ka was founded by sisters Catherine and Francoise Mühlethaler as phyto-aromatic brand in France. With Catherine being an aesthetician and Francoise being a biochemist, they combined their passions of the plant kingdom and their career paths to create a brand that merges botany and scientific innovation to create a wellness and beauty brand. Launching their first laboratory in 1954, Yon-Ka had been on the cutting edge of aroma therapy and phytotherapy.
Now, what is phytotherapy? It is the use of extracts of natural origin as medicines or health promoting agents. It is plant cell actives that are the key to their exceptional products. The plant extracts help remineralize, hydrate, nourish, repair, and strengthen.
But, best friend, what is aromatherapy? It is the therapeutic use of essential oils to restore your skin. The perfect blend of essential oils can take a good product and make it exceptional. In addition to the benefits that different essential oils can bring, they also add a sensory effect that can be felt in the body and mind. Now, speaking of essential oils, Yon-Ka is also famous for their 5 essential oil blend, which is known as the quintessence, which is the perfect blend of lavender, geranium, rosemary, cypress, and thyme. Together work to treat, heal, and restore the skin. 70% off the Yon-Ka products contain this quintessence blend.
Geranium: Anti-aging and balancing properties
Lavender: regenerating and soothing
Rosemary: Detoxifying and firming
Cypress: Refining and balancing
Thyme: Purifying and invigorating
Now that you know how amazing they are, let’s address how their products come into play with our treatments? We actually use Yon-Ka products as a part of our facials. The combination of naturally hard working products mixed with an aromatic experience make it one of our go to products for our facials. No matter what your skin care concern is or what your time frame looks like Yon-ka has a facial for you, from helping with acne, to dark spots, from 30 mins to 1.5 hours, there is something for everyone.
