As medical doctors, we are formulating natural cosmetics that restore the natural balance of the skin, without chemical interventions, and reveal the "healthy beauty" at any age.
Our products intervene in the pollutant effective mechanism, thus reducing the potent effects of the toxic elements, provide the necessary vitamins and nutrients, strengthen the skin barrier, keep the natural balance and give skin its healthy appearance with respect to ageing.
The effectiveness of MontOlympe integrated care products is due to the healing properties and natural bioactive ingredients of herbs known in the applied medical and pharmaceutical science and specializing in the field of cosmetics.
-The Sideritis scardica flower is handpicked at an altitude above 1400m on Mountain Olympus. It has been lauded and documented by Dioscorides, since antiquity, for its healing, antioxidant and antimicrobial effects. This is due to its high concentrations on polyphenolic, terpenoids and hydrocarbon compounds found in the extractions. An antioxidant blend that can slow down the aging process due to environmental effects and help the skin look brighter and healthier.
It is incorporated by MontOlympe in products dedicated to the protection of the skin from the polluting environment and against the first wrinkles.
- The valuable medicinal properties of Olympus Cornelian Cherry were documented since Hippocrates Times. These juicy fruits are a precious source of many nutrients and their extract contains rich amounts of antioxidants and vitamin C that possess a natural antiviral, antibacterial and antioxidant activity. Olympus Cornelian Cherry is incorporated by MontOlympe in anti-aging products.
We are in constant interaction and collaboration with the Department of Pharmacy of the University of Thessaloniki and with the Institute of Genetic Improvement and Phytogenetic Resources of the Hellenic Agricultural Organization.
Our goal is to search and record the uncharted "biological value" of the herbs of Mount Olympus and to study how it is beneficially imprinted on human skin.
