Yon-Ka The History

YON-KA THE HISTORY

1954 to 1967 : turning passion into creation
Pioneers in aromatherapy, Cécile, Ernst and Charles Muhlethaler are passionate about aromatherapy and in 1954 they found the Laboratories Multaler. At the time, the wealth of ancestral and empirical knowledge they were able to draw upon was shared only by a small number of scientists, chemists and doctors.

The Essential Oils
At first they focus on the subtle aromas of the botanical world, the essential oils charged with solar energy. They experiment on themselves, family and friends, the therapeutic properties of the plants: purifying, healing, psychotropic…
Their research leads them to a breakthrough discovery: “Quintessence” a unique combination of 5 essential oils from the Mediterranean which becomes the cornerstone of their future skin care line.

Plant and fruit extracts
But why limit oneself to the essential oils, when so many other wonders known for hundreds of years can be drawn from plants? 
They broaden their research, blend essential oils together with plant and marine extracts, in lotions, creams and massage oils, unveiling new synergies. Medical doctors, physiotherapists and aestheticians are involved in the evaluation and testing. Success is immediate and the professionals are appealed both by the originality, the pleasant feel of the products and the power of their balancing aromas only surpassed by their efficiency, their immediate and visible results and the positive feed-back from the users. Clients rave about this new sensations in simple words: “thanks to the treatment it is as if my skin is breathing again, I feel good and it shows”


From this moment on the products are available with the brand name YON-KA, a symbolic and mysterious name.

 

 Since 1968, growing from small-scale operation to international company with the same passion

Françoise Muhlethaler, a biochemist, and Catherine Muhlethaler, an aesthetician, daughters and nieces of the founders take the lead of this French family owned company in 1968. Driven by the same passion and values like their founding predecessors and parents, they bring the company to the next level both for the industrial processes and the commercial development. With pride and ambition for the brand, they open 3 subsidiaries: starting with the USA in 1987 soon followed by the United Kingdom and Switzerland in the early 2000.

Day after day they build relentlessly and bring the company to the next industrial level: the factory is set and organized according to the highest standards in the industry: products are manufactured according to GMP standards (good manufacturing practices) in a filtered air environment. They support and organize in house Research & Development, Quality and Applications with a skilled team of pharmacists, chemist engineers, biologists, bacteriologists, aestheticians, in order to master the development and production of the products and allow objective efficacy testing.
 

Based in the Paris metropolitan area, the company is now set on premises of over 86,000 square feet. It develops its own exclusive formulas, manufactures, inspects, controls and distributes Yon-Ka worldwide.
 

The Yon-Ka phyto-aromatic products have acquired an international recognition as experts in Phyto-Aromatherapy. They can be found in more than 50 countries present in more than 5000 of the most exclusive spas and resorts, collaborating with dermatologists and plastic surgeons. Yon-Ka today is the only brand that can offer a unique sense of well-being while delivering immediate long lasting results to the most demanding skins.

Nature how beautiful

Nature how beautiful

This weekend I had the pleasure of visiting another amazing and wonderful place in Australia.

The Bunya Mountains.

It took my breath away, the first day we arrived the weather wasn't on our side, but the beautiful log cabin and roaring fire, nice glass of wine, spending time with family it didn't matter what the weather was like, I knew behind the mist and rain there was an amazing view, I just had to wait, so I sat back on the sofa enjoying the company I was in.

The following morning we went out for a walk, the sun was out, it was cold and windy but the views were even more magical than I had imagined.   It was spectacular, I think everyone should take a step out in nature and just breath, enjoy the beauty around you.

Life is for living and enjoying every moment.

Bunya Mountains - Took my breath away.

This picture was an image of me having a glass of bubbles watching the sunset, it was beautiful as you can see.

YONKA - What the experts say about anti-aging !

Anti-aging focus:

Aging of the skin is closely related to each person's lifestyle. To stay young, YON-KA offers a double solution for every aging concern, providing a perfect synergy between home care products and salon treatments. By: Claire

an optimum anti-aging preventive action

 

From what age should you start using an anti-aging treatment to preserve your youthful appearance?

From the age of 25, use VITAL DEFENSE, an ally for all customers from the age of 25 who wish to protect their skin from aging caused by harsh environmental factors (pollution, cigarette smoke, exposure to UVs, climate variation, etc.). This "anti-pollution" shield, with Myrtle extract and Moringa peptides is also precious for anyone experiencing a dull or a muddy complexion and lifeless skin.

In a salon, pair it with: The VITAL DEFENSE preventive anti-aging booster treatment – 1 hour.
Anti-oxidant and anti-pollution, Vital Defense is the ideal preventive treatment to protect against harsh environmental factors and preserve your skin's youthful glow.

Result: an optimum anti-aging preventive action

•    What is the best treatment for dull or uneven skin?
The FRUITELIA emulsion and the renewing anti-wrinkle concentrate ALPHA-COMPLEX, with its perfectly dosed fruit acids, gently eliminate aging cells and favor their renewal. They refine the skin's surface, brighten the complexion and restore its glow, while smoothing wrinkles and fine lines.

In a salon, pair them with: The ALPHA VITAL resurfacing fruit acid treatment – 1 hour 15 minutes
Through the action of controlled fruit acids, wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed. Your complexion is brightened. Your skin becomes softer and firmer, visibly younger.

The result: a brighter complexion. Wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed. Your skin is left soft and silky.

•    My skin is less firm, what can I do?
Opt for the OPTIMIZER DUO, your closest ally. Thanks to the unique association of plant extracts rich in Hibiscus and White Lupine peptides, the Firming, Anti-Aging Program ADVANCED OPTIMIZER provides a complete and undeniably innovative solution against skin slackening. The SÉRUM and CRÈME act in tandem to boost the skin's natural reconstruction process, slow the destruction of supporting tissues, repair and protect the epidermis.

In a salon, pair them with: The firming-tightening treatment OPTIMIZER – 1 hour 15 minutes.
An exceptional treatment, which acts as a true, firm skin "coaching" for a visibly younger looking complexion and redefined facial contours.

The result: skin is visibly younger, firmer and smoother. Your facial contours appear redefined.

•    How can I prevent wrinkles from becoming deep and set?
Choose ELASTINE JOUR and ELASTINE NUIT, the ultimate twin treatment! These two complementary day and night creams with 19 essential amino acids smooth the epidermis and help restore its elasticity.

The result: skin is perfectly hydrated, nourished and protected. Superficial wrinkles and fine lines are diminished.

•    What can I do about deeper, set wrinkles?
With its Boswellia and Dill extracts, the STIMULASTINE JOUR and NUIT program, counters the deterioration of elastin fibers, smooths and restructures your skin. Its elegant texture is comforting.

In a salon, pair them with: The VITAL ELASTINE smoothing/restructuring anti-wrinkle treatment – 1 hour 15 minutes
All Yon-Ka's anti-aging expertise has been implemented in this treatment with two levels of action. The Vital Elastine treatment acts both on superficial wrinkles and deeper, set wrinkles which it visibly diminishes thanks to targeted and personalized techniques.

Yon-Ka The name!

Yon-Ka

Where did the name come from?

These two syllables form a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

  • “Yon” is the river of living, purifying water, and sounds similar to “ion”, particle of energy.
  • “Ka” is the eternal part of every being according to Egyptian mythology.
  • Yon and Ka unites what seems contradictory: knowledge and mystery, science and nature, movement and rest, shadows and light.
  • Together they form a symbol of constant regeneration and newfound harmony.

 

How beauty is that on how the name yon-ka was discovered.

Not only is the name beautiful but so are the products.

The Cuticle! To Cut or Not to Cut?

Cuticle!!!!!

Cuticle are so important for your nails, they help protect us from germs and bacteria.

So why do we feel the need to cut them?

My advise is try not to cut them just push them back, sometimes I know they get out of control, but try to keep pushing them back so you are not tempted to cut them.

If you do feel they need to be cut get a professional to look at them and decide if it is necessary. There will be less chance of any damage to the cuticle.

Try putting some oil on the cuticle it will keep them soft while feeding the nails, look for product that have jojoba and  vitamin E in them to help with hydrating the cuticle area.

So here's to some happy hydrated cuticles.....

Time out?

Time Out?

How often do we take some timeout from our busy days. Just to sit in the silence and look at the beauty around us, this week I booked in an appointment with myself, yes with myself I give myself two hours of me time.  You know what it was the best time I have had in a long while. I got myself a lovely coffee, a good book, and headed to a beautiful lake.  I sat here in silence watching as the duck feed in the lake, families played in the park, some birds rested on my table.  It was lovely to just stop and look at the world around us it really is so beautiful.  If we could just put down the phones and step away from being a mom, dad, grandma, grandad, sister, brother, daughter, worker the employee, etc.  STOP book in some me time today.  It really gives you that opportunity to count your blessing and realise how lucky we all are.
