Yooma’s co-chief executive Ron Wardle said the firm is launching the product on the Beyond app ahead of upcoming sales events on Black Friday and 12.12 eCommerce events and that the launch provides “an opportunity for Yooma to have a direct connection to our key demographic customers while introducing them to the next generation of clean beauty brands incorporating cannabinoid ingredients".
