“An ancestral tradition to rediscover”

Soap is a universal product used daily for washing, but did you know that Greece and Crete have a long tradition of making artisanal soap? This ancestral know-how is passed down from generation to generation, which has helped preserve the quality and benefits of this natural product.

How to choose a good soap?

To choose a good soap, it is important to check the ingredients. Greek and Cretan artisanal soaps are generally made from olive oil, coconut oil, sweet almond oil or even shea butter. These ingredients are natural and nourishing for the skin, unlike industrial soaps which often contain irritating chemicals.

What are the benefits of soap?

Soap is an essential product for personal hygiene, but it also has benefits for the skin. Greek and Cretan soaps are rich in fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants. They deeply hydrate and nourish the skin, leaving it soft and supple. Some soaps also contain essential oils with soothing or toning properties.

How to use soap?

The soap can be used daily to wash the body, hands or face. Simply wet the skin and lather the soap by rubbing gently. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and dry the skin by gently patting it with a towel.

In summary, Greek and Cretan artisanal soaps are a true wonder for the skin. Their natural composition and ancestral know-how make them a superior quality product to industrial soaps. So, why not let yourself be tempted by this ancestral tradition and rediscover the benefits of soap?
