Yon-Ka Paris is founded on the principles of detoxification and regeneration due to the use of solar-charged aromatic essential oils and plant extracts that rebuild and preserve tissue to promote longevity. When the brand launched more than 60 years ago, it developed Quintessence, a unique blend of botanicals utilized in each Yon-Ka product proven to deliver long-lasting results.

Developed using an artisanal Phytobio Integrate process unique to Yon-Ka, the elixir sources five aromatic essential oils from the Mediterranean basin and blends them with a vast array of plant extracts to energize the skin and promote skin longevity. The active-beauty concentrate includes geranium, for its anti-aging and skin balancing properties; rosemary, for its detoxifying and firming properties; lavender, for its soothing and regenerating properties; cypress, for its refining and balancing properties; and thyme, for its purifying and invigorating properties.

Here, discover how Quintessence became the cornerstone of the Yon-Ka ranges, providing an olfactory experience while providing the skin its daily beauty intake. Join Katherine Tomasso, national director of education for Yon-Ka Paris, as she discusses what’s new with the brand and more, live from Spatec by American Spa.
