Yemanja Values

Waste minimisation

Yemanja is committed to a coherent and responsible vision.

Packaging & recycling

At Yemanja, there is no overpackaging. All necessary information can be found on the label.

Our parcels and packaging are limited to the bare minimum to ensure proper transport of the products, and of course no plastic! Even the tape is made of (reinforced) paper.

Our products are contained in miron glass, which is a high quality violet glass that acts as an almost total barrier to UV radiation. It is thus a precious ally for the natural conservation of the product. As a niche product, it is not currently recycled in industry.

In general, glass has an almost infinite life span. That’s why we collect your empty bottles through our partners, gather them and put them back into the production chain to minimise the ecological impact of their use.

A Yemanja display with several products on it.

Accessories

The accessories that accompany our products are governed by the same production and recycling requirements.

Our displays were designed by Laure Gremion, a designer from Neuchâtel, and are produced by an independent ceramist in Geneva.

Our paper and satin bags are made in the European Union.

This global vision guides our daily choices and provides a solid foundation for the coherence that we value.
