The eighth day of March each year marks a global day of celebration for the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. International Women’s Day (IWD) has been celebrated for well over a century since the first IWD gathering in 1911 was supported by over 1 million people. Today, International Women’s Day is not restricted to a country, group, or organization but exists to celebrate the life and achievements of women everywhere.
French skincare brand Yon-Ka Paris celebrates the lives and achievements of women each and every year. Run by two women, this international skincare brand is an example and an inspiration for women around the globe who seek to make their mark on the world.
A Brief History of Yon-Ka Paris
Established in 1954, Yon-Ka Paris has grown into an international luxury skincare brand celebrating its 67th year of success in the industry. Originally founded by the Mühlethaler brothers Charles, Ernest, and his wife Cecile, the brand has been passionately led by the founder’s daughters since 1960. Catherine and Francoise Mühlethaler, a biochemist and an aesthetician, have pioneered the brand’s innovative and therapeutic skincare solutions for over six decades.
Inspired by the essence of female leadership and entrepreneurship embodied in the Mühlethaler sisters, Yon-Ka Paris continues to celebrate the greatness of nature with their clean, healthy, and regenerative formulas. With a vision of holistic beauty at the helm and the active synergy of Yon-Ka Quintessence at the core, this company has made its mark on the world, creating a multi-sensory experience that revitalizes the spirit and reconnects women with their bodies to boost well-being from within.
Empowering Women Through the Yon-Ka Partner Program
Not only is Yon-Ka Paris an international luxury skincare brand run by two women, but the company empowers women worldwide through the Yon-Ka Partner Program. Today, Yon-Ka Paris collaborates with beauty and wellness professionals worldwide in over 6,000 wellness and beauty locations. The Yon-Ka Partner Program gives skincare professionals at all stages of their career access to intensive hands-on training, online professional community resources, and continuous advanced education.
Yon-Ka Paris has always believed in the power of rediscovery. Rediscovering a sense of inner peace and balance by living in the moment while cultivating self-awareness and embracing the principle of self-care. Through their skincare products, the Mühlethaler sisters encourage women to feel empowered within themselves, no matter their age or circumstance. Yon-Ka’s regenerative products enable women of all ages to embrace their own natural beauty and youthfulness within.
Since 1954, Yon-Ka Paris has been driven by the desire to deliver the perfect alchemy of age-defying results and pure wellness supported by scientific efficacy. Under the dedicated guidance of Catherine and Francoise Mühlethaler, not only is this goal realized year after year, but thousands of women find their place in the industry under Yon-Ka tutelage and support.
The Beauty Of Women’s Innovation
The sister-founders of Yon-Ka believe wholeheartedly in the power of innovation and how it can be a way for women around the world to leave a positive impact on the world. They themselves have worked over six decades to bring new and pioneering products to the skincare industry—most recently being Glyconight 10%. Glyconight 10% delivers powerful anti-aging results as an overnight peeling mask. This product features pure glycolic acid as the primary active ingredient, which reduces the visible signs of aging while amplifying the skins youthful appearance.
