Synempe Lab is a family laboratory based on the Greek island of Ikaria. Drawing on the expertise of a lab specialized in natural cosmetics, it produces handmade, plant-based soaps and cosmetics from local olive oil. Having a cleansing and moisturizing effect that comes from olive oil’s unique properties, the lab is totally aligned with sustainability and social justice ethics, using only olive oil exclusively produced by local farmers. Aimed to elevate the skin health while celebrating the planet’s natural gifts, Synempe has stripped down the skincare routine to its core, using natural ingredients to create simple and effective natural cosmetics that infuse the Ikarian nature’s benefits into daily life.
“We create our soaps using the cold-process method so that the oil does not exceed 30-35°C, and none of the nutrients are lost. With respect and appreciation, we receive what nature generously offers us and we transform it into healthy treatment, respect, and factual love towards our body, our belove and only vehicle in life”, says the team.
Ikarian natural farming olive oil of Lathokubi, organic certified raw honey, propolis, and beeswax by globally awarded Melisanthi apiary, natural rosewater, pure chian mastic, Ikarian medicinal and pharmaceutical wild plants, and specially hand-picked organic seasonal local fruits are some of the products’ quality components. Synempe Lab’s ingredients are extracted and processed according to natural and regenerative farming, green chemistry principles, sustainability, and environmental protection. The packaging is also reusable and the skincare products are suitable for all skin types.
SYNEMPE: Verb of Ikarian dialect meaning to realize, to be concerned, to perceive something that is already happening.
