We really adore our products and wish to communicate this passion to more people that share the values of natural, handmade, chemical-free personal care. Our aspiration is to expand our range without ever losing the handmade personalised character, always adding our personal touch and always offering the highest quality that we can.
I always loved a good bar of handmade natural soap and was intrigued by what goes into making one. The critical point of drifting into the world of DIY (Do It Yourself) came after I decided to enroll in a perfumery course which runs on the philosophy of all natural ingredients.
This acquainted me with designing formulae, building recipes, and following through the completion of a fully developed, safe and pleasant end-product, after many trial and error. From there it was only a small step to handmade soap.
It took a lot of studying, experimenting with different oil combinations, and many, many trial soap bars to grasp the full details of the art. And still learning of course..
While studying and researching on raw materials, botanicals, essential oils, we realised that Greece, being a Mediterranean country extending from mountain to sea, is the ideal cradle of top quality oils, herbs, grains, roots and resins! Why not exploit nature’s gifts and offer handmade products made from the best ingredients? After all, our country’s best assets are products of its land and sea!
So we designed our recipes trying to express what is Greece to the contemporary visitor? Emerald crystal waters, windy beaches, rocky seashores, an urchin entangled with seaweed, a ripe fig dripping syrup, sweet blood-red tomatoes, a royal watermelon, golden grape juice and Krokos, aromatic mastic, the sweetest oranges and yoghurt and honey, a superb combination. Finally, the eternal olive tree and excellent virgin olive oil cannot be!
All of the above are not only super foods but also exquisite raw materials for our handmade fantasies!
We always use very good quality Greek virgin olive oil which holds the highest percentage in my recipes. We also use pure essential oils and carefully picked fragrance oils from well-respected suppliers. We colour our soaps with natural oxides.
The end product was received with great enthusiasm from family and friends and ever since the circle grows bigger. We soon went on to liquid handmade body wash, hair conditioner and body creams & lotions.
What would be our motto after these 5 years of hard work? Keep the product simple, a good well-designed formula and top quality ingredients are all you need to make an excellent product!
Best regards, Charis Makri.
