They say cleanliness is only next to godliness. As a child, I was nurtured to adore cleanliness. It is one of the instructions that is always repeated all over again. And naturally, clean spaces are always inviting. They beckon you to come and stay. Have you ever cleaned a house and felt unworthy of entering it because you will make it dirty again? Yet it is also human that at times we fail to bring to ourselves the things we dearly want.  That is where we at Yonja come in. We come into your usually busy lives to help you put “the house to order”. Yonja Multipurpose liquid detergent helps to ease your cleaning, leaving your space sparkling clean.

Origin of Yonja
Yonja was birthed when I was referred by one of my former bosses to work with a particular company given my academic background in chemical engineering. It’s from there that I picked interest in the various cleaning products and cosmetics, a couple of which I got trained in. I later decided to start making liquid soap. At first, it was for pleasure and I freely gave out liquid soap to my neighbors, friends and relatives. This to me was a season of experimenting until I decided that I wanted to make money from my new skill.
I started out with producing one and five litre Jerry cans of Yonja and have now expanded to producing 10 litres and 20 litres. The prices are as follows-one litre- 2000 ugx, five litres – ugx 10,000, ten litres –ugx 20,000 and twenty litre -32,000 litre. We are also working on producing Yonja Shower Gel and Yonja hand wash soon.

Meaning of Yonja
When you listen to yourself speak, you realize the word Yonja has an onomatopoeic reference to its literal version; to clean. And as thus, like they say, the apple doesn`t fall far from the tree. Yonja is simply all about cleaning; to clean and make clean. The name was born out of the desire to be unique with a global goal of cleaning and being clean.
2020 plans
Yonja is a young brand with intentions of growth. Hopefully into a household brand that goes on to live in every household. The dream is that big. However, we had to start somewhere and that is exactly what we are doing; creating cleaning detergent and making it available for consumption. To this we are casting our net even further, by training others on how to make simple detergents like liquid soap in March.
However, we are also tirelessly working to make our new products readily available on the market. Be on the lookout for our shower gel and hand wash all branded with the boldness that is the Yonja logo. 

Where can the products be found?
The products are produced in Lugala along Philip Morris road and one can place an order of any volume via a call on 0781838040/0703211939 and the order can be picked or delivered.

  1. And yes it is Yonja. From unbranded packaging to a beautiful package that is irresistible to the eye. I have used Yonja since 2017 and I must say it is not just for the house but everything including vehicles. Some people study because they have been told to but to see Chemical passionate about chemicals is an inspiration. My 20L needs a replacement, expect an order soon.

  2. I particularly enjoyed Yonja and its impact on all kinds of cleaning. At first I bought three (3) small jerrycans of 5L each as a sample. Shared with my neighbor and a friend. Trust me before what i offered got done, they were already calling for more and to share the address of where they can privately get the product. Prossy Namulindwa, your insight about using your knowledge and skills to come up with such a product has changed people’s lives! Now patiently waiting for Shower gel and other more related cleaning products!
