At Best oLive we like anything related to Nature, beauty, vitality and well-being!
We initially used some well-hidden recipes of our grandmothers for soaps and herbal cosmetics from natural products and tried to make our first products several years ago. And here we faced the first serious difficulties because, in order to make real quality herbal cosmetics, we need not good packaging, but good content, good natural raw materials that simply did not exist in the Market.
However, they have always existed in Nature, as long as someone deals with it and cultivates it! And at this point we faced the reality… we inevitably had to get our hands dirty with soil, buy agricultural tools, hire land workers and cultivate our land if we wanted to have first-class goods of good quality and controlled cost and quantity for our own use. So it happened..
Having realized the importance and value of Greek herbs, local olive trees and organic aloe vera, we decided a few years ago to actively and in a special way utilize our estates in Methana. The volcanic peninsula of Methana, in addition to the famous Thermal Springs, is also famous for the fine variety of olive trees that thrive in our area, the Koroneiki – Manaki variety. This olive oil, in addition to being a fine culinary delight, is the key ingredient for the production of our cosmetic products, thus properly “nourishing” the largest organ of our body, our skin!
At the same time, we installed organic cultivation of certified Aloe Vera plants of the Barbadensis Miller variety, a cultivation completely unknown to the general public at the time. The reasons that led us to this “alternative” cultivation were many and important. So, with a lot of passion, love and the valuable support of the scientific community of Cosmetology, we started with slow but steady steps to produce fresh Greek cosmetics with the highest quality characteristics. The ideal combination of these two ingredients just started to surprise us!
