Our love for pure and true ingredients began from the memories we have of our early years with our grandmother, who put oil in her face, resulting in her flawless and luminous skin. Years later we began seeking the means of production for handcrafted products for skincare in the most natural way. We began by making soaps, which gift us with cleanliness, wellness, health and newness. Wax salve for protection, hydration, nourishment and regeneration, with natural ales, butters, essential oils, vitamins, etc. for ourselves, our children, and our friends.
Our products had such resonance that after long research and experimenting we, the family, decided to gather our strength and, in 2012, create the company “Laurus Nobilis”.
Certainly, what helped us were the favorable conditions that have been developed in recent years in the field of cosmetics from pure natural materials. The herbs we use stem from our lands. We use virgin olive oil and pure raw beeswax by local producers.
For flavoring we use essential oils, natural herbs, fruit juices and herbs. The coloration is achieved with herbal substances, spices and herbs. They are ecological, biodegradable and do not leave any waste. We are animal-friendly and we will never allow animal testing.
We have gift packages for loved ones, corporate gifts, gifts for special and social events such as baptisms, weddings, etc. We are at your disposal to design your unique requirements along with the same pure recipes.
Most of our products contain herbal substances, the beneficial parts of the plant that are dried for pharmaceutical and cosmetic use, in which all the healing effects of the plant are concentrated. Wild rose, aloe, rosemary, laurel, eucalyptus, lavender, lemon, peppermint, sable, chicory and chamomile are some of the plants either cultivated by ourselves or purchased from local producers, by collecting their valuable ingredients.
We produce our products in the laboratory located at Shimatari MD of the Municipality of Tanagra, (60 km north of Athens). At the foot of the municipality, there is the City of Ancient Tanagra, with the famous Tanagra figurines.
The Tanagra Figurines are ancient Greek works of terracotta art. They present women in a standing or seated position, and come from the so-called molding workshops of Tanagra, in ancient Boeotia. They are models of ideal beauty and fashion. The costume is luxurious and elaborately folded while emphasizing the beautiful lines of the body. The head and neck keeps all the aristocratic features, even when covered with a scarf. They come with stylish and precious accessories such as earrings, fan coils, hats and more. It was a tribute to the goddess Aphrodite, who represented the ideal of feminine beauty. They served as a talisman or lucky charms, and that is why they accompanied women throughout their lives, from childhood to death. In 1872, they were first exhibited in the Louvre, and in 1873 all of Paris bowed before the grace of Tanagra.
Our love for natural products, made us look for ways to create natural soaps that offer beauty, wellness and care of the skin. Our products are all made with passion, they are unique, original, luxury and used for personal hygiene, cleanliness, freshness and health.
We promote the natural handmade soap as a pure traditional product.
