Yemanja Values

Social commitments

Yemanja is committed to developing natural luxury cosmetics for the well-being of people, with respect for their health and the environment.

SOS Amazônia

SOS Amazônia is a Brazilian NGO that promotes biodiversity conservation and environmental awareness in the Amazon. Its main mission is to protect the Amazon rainforest and its inhabitants, both the indigenous population and the protected and endangered species.

SOS Amazônia is constantly fighting, educating and communicating about deforestation in the Amazon. They are dealing with this daily disaster both politically and on the ground; they are restoring deforested areas (already more than 110,000 trees replanted), managing protected areas (more than 100,000 hectares monitored) and are also directly involved with wildlife (more than 40,000 baby turtles reintroduced into the wild).

Les Cosmétiques Yemanja are proud to be recognized partners of SOS Amazônia, as the cause defended by this NGO is essential in our eyes and for the protection of our planet.

The Yemanja label

Our quality label is based on the commitments of the NGO SOS Amazônia.

We favour a global but precise charter for our products. Far beyond the requirements of contemporary organic cosmetics, we go further and consider every step of the production of our products: from planting to harvesting to packaging to the finished product, we think in terms of global and local environmental and societal impact.

During the development and production of our products, we take into account the production conditions of our raw materials in the same way as we minimise transport distances. We source locally wherever possible.

Our Mission

The fruit of a complex reflective process, the values conveyed by Yemanja cosmetics lead us to remain close to our customers and all our partners in order to accompany the evolution of human needs while preserving our planet.

Thus, the Mission of Les Cosmétiques Yemanja is as follows: human, authentic and naturally healthy products for Humans.

Or, if we were to put it more precisely: luxury cosmetics, naturally healthy, organic, vegan, and free of essential oils, gluten and synthetic fragrances, which are designed for both men and women, deployed through a succinct range and beyond the usual marketing contingencies.

We firmly believe that this is the best way to produce natural cosmetics of the highest quality.
