Our Story


Renaissance Products Ltd is the largest Irish-based family owned distributor of leading professional skincare brands. We work only with dynamic manufacturers who continually push the boundaries to produce results-driven products and treatments, use only the best ingredients, and are continually researching and developing their products.

We are the Irish distributors of Yon-Ka Paris since 1991 and IMAGE Skincare since 2009, and have won numerous international distributor awards for professionalism, customer support and service, and results.

How it all began

Renaissance Products Ltd was established in 1991 by husband and wife team Tom and Rosemary Evans. They were joined later by their three children, Michael, Richard and Melissa, who now run the company in the beautiful seaside town of Howth, Co Dublin, together with a highly skilled and motivated team.

The story of Renaissance Products began when Rosemary discovered Yon-Ka Paris while training to become a skincare professional and began importing the aromatherapy-based skincare brand for use in her home-based salon.

Rosemary was so impressed with the results and feedback from her clients she and her husband Tom decided to distribute the range in Ireland.

Business grew quickly and moved from being home based to a much larger office in the original town hall building in Howth village which was renovated extensively to house the company headquarters and training facilities. A commercial warehouse was also aquired to accommodate the growing stock levels needed to supply the Irish market.

In 2009, the company secured the IMAGE Skincare brand for Ireland, which has been hugely successful, thanks to the brand's innovative, results-driven products and treatments, and Renaissance's concentration on high-level training for all therapists and clinic owners working with the brand. In fact, Renaissance has enjoyed so much success with the brand that the company has been awarded the IMAGE Skincare International Distributor of the year consecutively since 2011 out of 70 countries.

Today, Renaissance continues to grow, but always with a focus on providing Irish skincare professionals with innovative and superior products, brands and training. Renaissance Products are committed to working with only the very best skincare practices in the industry, clients and brands who share our passion for results-driven products and treatments that truly deliver to the discerning modern day consumer.
