YUNI was founded by natural beauty pioneers and yoga teachers, Emmanuel Rey and Suzanne Dawson. YUNI creates healthy, natural solutions that save time, enhance performance and relieve stress – so active people who pursue life with passion can do more, live more and find more joy in every moment.
YUNI’s products embody a philosophy we call responsible beauty. Because we believe that people should be empowered to take responsibility for their own wellness, we select natural ingredients that enhance health and avoid artificial ingredients that may be harmful. That’s why our formulas are non-toxic, plant based and free of parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde, petrolatum, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates, mineral oil, synthetic colors or fragrances, GMOs, PABA, EDTA, or PEGs. Because we believe that people are responsible for the health of the planet, YUNI products are biodegradable, compostable, tested on humans (never on animals) and that’s why the organic, natural ingredients we use are consciously and sustainably sourced. Because we believe that people are responsible for the social and economic effects of their choices, we strive to select fair trade natural ingredients for all our formulas.
We’ve dedicated our lives to the seeking of good. In fact, we are so committed to this idea that we’ve even integrated it into our company tag-line. We are passionate about attracting people who feel the same way about their Yoga practice, and about life!
In 2012, we both completed our Ashtanga Yoga teacher training in Amorgos, Greece. During those weeks there with our fellow Yogis, we took the opportunity to learn a lot about how and why they valued their practice so deeply, and what they yearned for to possibly enhance their Yoga experience. Those conversations led to the development of YUNI.
