On the basis of ancestral formulations from the traditional Mediterranean pharmacopeia, the Island’s companies have developed primordial plant extracts and elixirs. Essential oils and plant oils, 100% pure and natural, royal jelly and honey as well as goat’s milk all play their part in skincare and beauty. Organic, natural ingredients are guaranteed to be free of artificial colouring, mineral oil, animal raw materials and pesticides.
