In the oral Cretan dialect, "Athos" means blossom. For us, the blossom symbolizes the creation, the evolution, the completion. In our 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 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.
