Organic Beauty Products & Etruscan Wisdom: In Italian the word Benessere (lit. Being Well: Essere Bene) is the translation for Wellness
Inspired to our Etruscan ancestors’deep knowledge of herbs, oils and plants properties for health and beauty, a Tuscan-made new organic beauty line for Ben-ESSERE has just been released. The line’s label is written using the Etruscan alphabet to mark its inspiration to Etruscan wisdom and it is composed by a small number of essential products containing ancient ingredients such as Myrrh, Honey, Amber, Grapeseed and Rose oils.
About one year ago I wrote about a young woman, Anastasia, a Russian Chemist, passionate about herbalism and beauty products , at that time working as therapist in a 5 stars Spa in the heart of Tuscany. Well, the very same young woman, after completing her Master in “Preparazioni Galeniche” at Siena University, has finally created her own line of organic products for face and body together with an Italian laboratory specialized in organic cosmetics.
In collaboration with a colleague who’s a Biologist also expert in Aromatherapy, Anastasia is now successfully presenting her 100% certified organic formulas, not tested on animals, containing only high quality ingredients, the very same ones that recent researches have shown were essential elements of Etruscan beauty products centuries ago
Ben-ESSERE beauty line is composed by face and hair oil, face mask, body scrub, face cream, cleansing milk and refreshing toner. Following the Etruscan footsteps, these products are strongly linked to Tuscany as ingredients come from the very same territory where Etruscans used to collect them.
The luxurious Body scrub is composed by pure Marine Salt coming from the Tyrrhenian Sea, the so called Etruscan Coast, Olive Oil and Honey comes from the area surrounding the Etruscan town of Volterra. Face masks use Argilla verde , sun dried Green Clay from Tuscany and the Grapeseed Oil used as base is produced in this region, famous around the world for its vineyards and wine production
@ Chiarastuscany we are happy to promote and recommend all of them. There has been a long and passionate research behind these products. A long research among Etruscan ancient recipes and many readings on natural remedies as part of the culture of this fascinating population, the very origin of the Tuscan people we meet now.
We are super lucky to have been able to try them all …and now…we are more beautiful than ever… we’ll need to post picture for that, I know you would like to see the proof…maybe for now just take our word for it !
