  Manufacturing process   During the process of manufacturing we invest a lot of time and energy to ensure a gentle and totally natural processing of the precious materials. Therefore we create our products without boiling the natural oils, or adding chemicals. We consult and work with people that carry long-lasting experience and know-how in the field of manufacturing in order to ensure the best possible results.      Soap Bar Production   For our soap bars we use the cold process method of saponification, exactly because no heating is used and the glycerine which is produced is retained within the soap. Saponification is a long-lasting procedure that carries on for hours and hours inside the moulded soap. Consequently, our soap is rich in glycerine, pertains all the natural properties of raw unprocessed olive oil and is ecological and biodegradable. After saponification, our soap ages for 6-8 weeks in a special room under controlled atmosphere humidity and natural ventilation. Our soap-makers produce our soaps 100% by hand, applying traditional methods and reviewing every step of the production.  Finally, our soaps are cut, wrapped and packaged also by hand.

     Natural Elixirs - Ingredients    Almond Oil   Almond oil is made by pressing raw almonds. This is something you may have heard about in other health products, where something is “raw” or “cold pressed.” This means that little to no heat is used in the process, thereby preserving all the naturally occurring chemical compounds within the oil, so that they can directly benefit the skin. One of the biggest secrets behind the use of almond oil for skin treatments is the high level of fatty acids contained in the final oil mixture. Fatty acids serve as a natural emollient for the skin, and can help the skin lock in moisture by forming a protective barrier. Emollients are especially effective for conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis, or rosacea. One of the main reasons why almond oil is beneficial is because of its ability to hydrate the skin. Almond oil works as a natural face exfoliator to help to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of healthier skin. When used topically, the formulated almond oil for skin products or treatments is absorbed by the fatty cells of the skin. The moisture in the oil is then utilized by the tissues to repair damaged cells and give skin a more youthful appearance.   St. John's Wort Oil   The fresh flowers of St. Johns when infused in oil produce a beautiful and powerful red oil that is anti-inflammatory and analgesic. This therapeutic oil has so many uses that you can sum it up by saying if it hurts, soothe it with St. Johns Oil. It helps soothe, calm and heal sensitive or damaged skin areas. It is known as the most valued home remedy in Greece. The soothing nature of St. John’s Wort and the rich concentration of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds make it perfect for easing the muscle aches and in addition to gout, joint discomfort. The use of St. John’s Wort in topical application in the form of a salve or tincture, it can speed the healing process of burns, bruises, and scrape by stimulating circulation of oxygenated blood to those skin cells so that repairs can begin.   Rosewater   Rosewater has been used throughout history by women around the world. Rosewater was so popular in fact, even Cleopatra used it to keep her skin dewy and supple during her reign as Queen of Egypt. It was used as a means to cool hot angry skin in the summer heat as well as for its ability to smooth, nourish, and brighten uneven complexions. Rosewater is essentially a byproduct of rose-essential-oil making. When the roses are being distilled for their oils, it’s the water that is left behind. Rosewater is one of the most useful substances that you can include in your beauty routine. It removes make-up, impurities and clarifies the complexion for healthier-looking and glowing skin. Rosewater contains anti-oxidants and various vitamins which can soothe and tone your skin. Its natural aroma leaves you feeling relaxed and revitalized. Rose water is also quite antiseptic, so acne causing bacteria don’t stand a chance with regular use as a natural skin toner. It’s properties benefit sensitive, irritated, dry, and even oily skin complexions by controlling sebum production, reducing inflammation, and allowing the outer skin barrier to heal and repair itself. Rose water even tightens the pores making them appear smaller. It also helps lighten hyperpigmentation over time with regular use and is a popular companion in The Oil Cleansing Method.

We seek for the beauty of the moment and the beauty in timelessness, in rough nature and in simplicity.
