The origin of Yanga Natural stems from its founder, Reg Cole, who became interested in the complexities of the endocrine system after being diagnosed with an overactive thyroid. This curiosity led him to conduct extensive research and travel across continents to gain knowledge. Through his experiences, Reg discovered the importance of what we put on our skin, realising that it is just as vital as what we consume.
