μινωικό — Ancient Greece + Mythology

Minoan / μινωικό was an early Greek civilization of the Bronze Age (around 2000 BC), living on the island of Crete in the Mediterranean Sea named after the mythical King Minos, a son of Zeus.

The legend of the Minotaur and the labyrinth located in Knossos – the bull-headed monster slain by the hero Theseus was a myth that originated from the Minoans.

Minoan civilization was remarkable for its great cities and palaces, its extended trade and its use of the earliest form of writing - Linear A, a symbol based written language extremely important for Greek linguistics. It represent the oldest known Greek dialect, elements of which survived in Homer's language as a result of a long oral tradition of epic poetry.

Our hero ingredient in our Minoan range is Cretan olive oil, home to ancient Greek Olive trees, known for producing superior Greek olive oil - the Mediterranean’s liquid gold. With 5,000 years of knowledge, each Greek olive is hand picked, sorted, and cold pressed to conserve its vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. The Minoans used this olive oil over 4,000 years ago in skincare and now its crafted with intention for you to use today.


Use water to create a silky lather to wash hands, body, face + hair and rinse thoughrougly with water. This natural soap will gently cleanse and hydrate - no need to moisturise unless you want to.

Do not leave this natural bar of soap sitting in a pool of water or an area that will constantly get wet as it will soften prematurely. If you keep this soap dry between uses it will last a long time
