In the oral Cretan dialect, "Athos" means blossom. For us, the blossom symbolizes the creation, the evolution, the completion.
In athos workshop, based on organic Cretan extra virgin olive oil, in combination with pure raw materials of the Cretan land, organic herbs and essential oils, we create handmade natural personal care products.
In athos workshop we create soaps with the cold process saponification, creams with natural beeswax and herbal extracts. The basic ingredient of our products is the organic Cretan extra virgin olive oil, a part of which arises from our own olive trees. We also co-operate with local small producers which supply us with herbs, fruits, milk, honey and natural beeswax, necessary materials for our products production. We do not use preservatives, colors and synthetic fragrances.
We gather and process our raw materials with natural and mild mechanical methods without disturbing the ecosystem. We are inspired by the Cretan landscape, where olive trees dominate along with cypresses, herbs, fruit- bearing trees, bees and goats. It is a land with intense influences from many places of the world, which leads to combined choices for the creation of our products.
All our products are made wholly in our workshop in Angeliana village of Rethymno and we prepare everything in small quantities to ensure the excellent quality of the final products. Our desire is to care for people in absolute harmony with nature.
