THE EVOLUTION OF SKIN CARE
CALITHEA, (beautiful goddess) the evolution of skincare, an online company, provides organic and authentically Greek products designed to enhance a woman’s inner beauty. Using 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the purest of ingredients, CALITHEA’s mission is to educate and empower women from all walks of life about proper skincare, based on our all-natural Greek products. By helping to strengthen a woman’s confidence and enhance her natural beauty, and not just her outward appearance, CALITHEA is focused on redefining healthy natural skincare with daily skincare routines for teens and women, starting at the age of 13. CALITHEA was created in 2016, by founders, George and Elena Kazas. A determined and passionate father-daughter combination, George and Elena were inspired to create a brand of natural and organic skincare products based on the virtues and proven results of ancient Greece. Because of its great health and healing properties, Greeks are known for using olive oil, donkey milk and honey to care for their body, skin and hair, some of the most natural ingredients for healthy, glowing, beautiful skin. CALITHEA was formed based on these two strong beliefs: That every woman should feel beautiful about themselves, since beauty is within each one of us, and that “all good things of this earth, come from this earth.”
