Yon-Ka… from aromatherapy to phytotherapy:
“Yon” is the river of living, purifying water, and sounds similar to “ion”, particle of energy.
“Ka” is the eternal part of every being according to Egyptian mythology.
Yon and Ka unites what seems contradictory: knowledge and mystery, science and nature, movement and rest, shadows and light. Together they form a symbol of constant regeneration and newfound harmony.
At the heart of the Yon-Ka formulas: the Quintessence.
This is an extraordinary synergy of five pre-dosed essential oils with a wide field of action. It is used in the composition of 70% of the brand’s products. Depending on its concentration, it is also a relaxing or energizing olfactory treasure.
- Fine lavender from Haute-Provence, with calming, healing and anti-inflammatory properties.
- Geranium from Egypt, with anti-inflammatory, antalgic and healing properties.
- Rosemary from Morocco, with antiseptic, regenerating and toning properties.
- Cypress from Provence, with decongesting and nerve-balancing properties.
- Thyme from Spain, an excellent stimulant with powerful antiseptic properties.
From roots to seeds, over 130 plants from the lands and seas of the entire world are used to compose Yon-Ka products and contribute to their effectiveness through targeted phyto-aromatic active ingredients.

In 1984 Normajean founded Equibal Labs, inspired by the childhood influence of her nature-loving grandfather. Equibal Labs produces a professional line of total beauty treatments that have become the standard for salons and spas around the world. Now Normajean is making her elite line of spa and salon tested natural beauty products available right in your own home.
Who is Normajean?
The face behind Nufree Nudesse finipil is Normajean Fusco, a Renaissance woman with a modern day twist. Normajean’s lifelong interest in chemistry began at the knee of her grandfather, Dr. Zenon Anthon Einik, a homeopathic physician and herbalist who formulated remedies and beauty creams in his lab with plants harvested from his own garden.
This early interest was the inspiration for Equibal Labs, which Normajean founded in 1984 to deliver high caliber non-wax, soy based depilatories and facial and anti-cellulite products that became the standard for spas and salons around the world.
Thirty years as an aesthetician gave Normajean experience in all aspects of the beauty business, first as a buyer for department stores in fragrances and cosmetics, then as a consultant to major cosmetic companies such as Revlon, Coty and Germaine Monteil.
After spending several years in Europe studying and teaching, she was among the pioneers who brought the European skincare and total beauty treatment approach to discerning women in America, incorporated into the concept of the day spa.
When Normajean isn’t busy creating in her lab or teaching the latest skin care techniques across the country, she can usually be found outdoors, riding her horses or painting some of the breathtaking landscapes that surround her home and factory in the Hudson Valley of New York.
