TRADITIONAL, HANDMADE, EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL SOAP FROM GREECE
We create pure soaps and balms, based on carefully selected natural ingredients. All our products, are handmade using traditional techniques assuring their truly high quality.
We use the cold process method of soapmaking. Our production is based exclusively on the highest quality Messinian and Spartan Extra Virgin Olive Oil. First pressed, mechanically and not thermally processed, this exquisite material provides by itself the basis of a very effective beauty product.
We create our soap, without boiling the natural oils, or separating their glycerin. During the cold process method, exactly because no heating is used, the glycerine which is produced during the saponification procedure, is retained within the soap.
Saponification is not achieved rapidly by utilising excessive heating, but it carries on for hours and hours inside the moulded soap. It is a slow procedure which requires a lot more time than the "hot process" method and this is the main reason it is not being used by industries where enormous amounts of production are required.
The cold method process is applied only to handmade soaps and requires a love for this art. Our soap, consequently is rich in glycerine, pertains all the natural properties of raw unprocessed olive oil, is environment friendly andbiodegradable.
Our soap is cut, stamped and packaged by hand, after it has aged for 8 weeks in a special room with natural ventilation.
We stand among of the rare few producers who use absolutely NO SYNTHETIC ADDITIVES or ARTIFICIAL COLOURS in our soaps. No other ingredient is being used in our standard production range, besides extra virgin olive oil, distilled water and lye in our soap base. The Extra Virgin Olive Oil we use, reaches 100% in all our standard production range soaps.
Our team consists of skilled in soap making specialists, with more than 40 years of combined experience.
We employ chemists to formulate and test our recipes before introducing each new product to the market.
Design and packaging professionals, who carefully choose only premium quality packaging materials and are ready to prepare any custom design you require for your brand (Private Label Design services).
Located in the rural area of Attiki, our offices and workshop are housed in 200sq.m. where our raw materials, packaging materials are kept and soap preparation (mixing-cutting-stamping) takes place.
We use natural ventilation to dry our bars and choose to do the entire soap making process by hand from start to packaging.
