History

From inception to action

For many centuries olive oil has been deemed to be an elixir of life and nourishment directly taken from mother nature. It is one of the best products nature generously grants us with and we think just as highly of it as our ancestors did.We were born among the olive trees hence we have come to deeply appreciate their therapeutic significance. Olive oil can act as a natural beauty product or even can be used for medicinal purposes. Initially started as small family business many decades ago, our business venture moved to the next level when we came up with this unique idea; as we had the key product already, all that was missing was the incorporation of another, equally important and valuable ingredient called aloe vera! Using organic olive oil and aloe vera combined with other natural ingredients we deliver what we have promised; natural skin and body nourishment beyond comparison.

Our mission goal and vision

Driven by our love for natural nourishment and our admiration for such miraculous natural ingredients our mission was to create products without using harmful raw materials such as vaseline,paraffin oil, propylene glycol and parabens. Our goal is to fully and effectively utilise natural ingredients, organically grown. Our vision is establishing a new, fresh perspective in terms of how you view nourishing and pampering yourself, all in a price you can afford.

Taken from the Greek soil

Products rich in history and tradition, grown under the Greek sun, they are chosen by many renowned brands both in Greece and abroad. This is due to their exceptional quality and high nutritional value. Thanks to the special practices and techniques implemented by Greek producers combined with our soil and climate, Greek products have made a name for themselves; their taste, aromas and colour distinguish them among other products in the market.

Olive oil, the cornerstone of Greek tradition

Since antiquity Greek olive trees have been the basis of economy, nutrition, health care and beauty. Olive oil is an extraordinary product with high nutritional value and multiple benefits to our health.

Aloe Vera, a vital natural ingredient

Aloe vera is a gift offered by nature and there have been reports stating that it has been a natural medicine for over 5000 years. Αloe vera is routinely used in modern medicine and also the cosmetic industry, due to its numerous antioxidant, antibacterial and skin rejuvenating properties.

Natural ingredients, from mother nature

When choosing beauty products, naturally derived ingredients should be the No1 criterion influencing our choice. Products that contain only the purest of ingredients and lack harmful chemical additives are not only great for the environment, but can also drastically improve the appearance of our skin.

In 2014, we took part in Cosmoproof Bologna, in Bologna, Italy, an exhibition known worldwide as one of the most important and well respected in the beauty and cosmetics industry. A year later, we took part in another equally well-established exhibition in Dusseldorf.
