BioAroma, an exclusive unit in the field of herbs, using their own organic corps and their own distillery for extracting the essential oils from their herbs, having an on-site museum and a botanical garden that anyone can visit in Ayios Nicolaos Crete, proceeded after a long study of the archaeological evidence in the Minoan perfumers together with old traditional “grandmother” Cretan recipes, in the production of 100% herbal handmade cosmetics, using raw materials form the organic treasures of Cretan’s earth like beeswax, olive oil, dittany, labdanum etc.
BioAroma is utilizing very ancient recipes in the production of creams and cosmetics. The Minoans, among the first producers of natural cosmetics worldwide, were preparing natural products and perfumes in special preparation locations, which were the “ancestors” of today’s cosmetic laboratories. In the Archanon palace, near the city of Heraklion, were found by archaeologist, aggregates on pottery that were solidified for thousands of years. After an extensive analysis , they have been recognized as herbs such as Dittany, the king of Cretan herbs, Roses or Labdanum together with residues of Beeswax and Olive oil.
The Minoan women were using those natural products and they were considered among the most beautiful women of the ancient world. BioAroma trusts those treasures of the Greek nature and reverses the modern cosmetology’s rules, in producing cosmetics without water “Water Free Products”.
The common cosmetic commercial creams are containing a 60-70% water and therefore in order to preserve the product they are using strong chemical preservatives which very often can cause either allergies or even cancer. Instead, BioAroma cosmetics are highly concentrated that can last 4 times more than a common cream , with no Chemical preservative.
Furthermore, due to their oily base, a natural lubrication is produced to the skin layers, maintaining a long lasting hydration without blocking though the pores and without making the skin feeling “heavy”.
Those advantages in combination with very reasonable prices, are making BioAroma cosmetics very popular around the world.
The founder of BioAroma is the chemist Manousos Pediatitis:
I am interested in having the women know the man behind the cosmetics they are using. I have studied Chemistry at the Chemistry Department of Crete University with a specialty in the produce of Natural Cosmetics.
The idea of establishing a unit of processing herbs and using them in cosmetic and healing products, was a challenge for me. My goal is to offer high quality cosmetics, without using any water in order to not dilute the ingredients and the women to enjoy real concentrated products with visible results.
The secret is behind the absence of water in the creams. This fact excludes the use of chemical preservatives and we, as a company, be proud to sell to the market 100% natural products.
It is not without reason we are using the phrase “Cosmetics so natural they can be …eaten”
