The art of essential oils and plant botanicals



Yon-Ka Paris, a skincare brand launched in 1954, focuses on the art of essential oils and plant botanicals. When the brand first began the wealth of knowledge they were able to draw upon was shared only by a small number of scientists, chemists and doctors. However, their continued research lead 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. This is their unique beauty secret which has unparalleled power and extraordinary synergetic properties. “Yon-Ka Quintessence”, makes up the DNA of the brand. Today, Yon-Ka blends essential oils together with plant and marine extracts evaluated and tested by doctors, physiotherapists and aestheticians.

The Experts

Every step in the production chain of Yon-Ka Paris’ skincare products from the development to the manufacturing, are controlled by an in-house team of expert scientists: doctors of pharmacy and biology, chemical engineers, biologists and bacteriologists.
