Nefysi takes pride in having the best natural skin care in Australia. Our products are handcrafted with care and formulated with nature’s most powerful vitamins and nutrients to cleanse, nourish, heal, and revitalise the skin. It’s the Greek way of taking care one’s self. Greeks are known admirers of beauty and the ancient Greeks really worked hard to achieve such beauty and flawlessness using Earth’s natural resources.

Not only did the ancient Greeks use Earth’s bountiful resources to enhance their physical appearance or heal any condition, but used them to promote overall well-being. Their beauty routine involves regular use of valuable oils, cosmetic powders, skin glosses, paints, and other beauty essences. They even concocted their own skincare products using natural ingredients that we still use today.

Essential Ingredients of Greek Skin Care

Three main ingredients that were used by the ancient Greeks still play major roles in promoting healthy and attractive skin in today’s organic skin care products. These are olive oil, honey, and yogurt. Olive oil and the olives were used as exfoliants and moisturisers; the oil lends that sheen and makes the skin look healthy, adding a little bit of glowing colour.

The honey along with milk and yogurt make for a younger-looking skin. The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties make the skin supple. The honey itself helps treat certain types of acne. Yogurt, on the other hand, is a natural moisturiser that is rich in vitamins and minerals, plus probiotics and proteins—this makes a great anti-aging mask. Yogurt also revitalises the skin and treats eczema.

Other Ingredients Being Used Today

o Sea salt. Ancient Greek women mixed sea salt with olive oil to scrub and exfoliate, after scrubbing they go for bath soaks to relieve and soothe the skin. Sea salt helps in reducing inflammation and in detoxification.

o Pomegranate. A very good cleanser that balances oily skin and cleans the pores, pomegranates help people maintain a healthy complexion as they age.

o Aloe vera. Another skincare ingredient for the body, aloe vera helps keep skin soft and moisturised very well. It treats stretch marks, age spots, and skin dehydration, among other things, for better-looking skin.

o Goat’s milk. For nourishment and hydration of dry skin, the ancient Greeks used goat’s milk on their skin. Paired with olive oil, the mixture makes a great moisturiser!

o Organic oils. Aside from olive oil, many oils and their extracts have healing and nourishing properties to help maintain a healthy complexion. You can check out our Pinakes, our list of ingredients, to see where the oils came from and their descriptions.
