  • … round-shaped soap ensures that fragrance spreads evenly?

  • … you can recognize ‘real’ cava by the four-pointed star on the bottom of the cork?

  • … homemade bread is 30% cheaper than at the bakery?

  • … a completely bacteria-free environment is not healthy at all?

Most cleaning products contain toxic chemicals and kill 99% of bacteria, which might seem very healthy, but nothing could be further from the truth.

YOKUU's natural cleaning products are revolutionizing the not-so-clean cleaning world with billions of healthy bacteria.


Did you know that…

  • … 60% of the global calorie intake comes from just four crops, while there are 6,000 other types of crops?

Rice, wheat, corn and potatoes - these are the four crops that account for 60% of the global calorie intake.

Fortunately, game-changer Zenko is transforming ancient superfoods into sustainable, healthy and delicious snacks, so you can add more variety to your diet. Besides, this diversity is good for your health and immunity. Nothing but benefits!
