Our story

Nymfes cosmetics were literally born in the Greek nature. In the springs of Acheron river, the green valley of Vikos, the sunset on Egremni beach, the calm waters of Tsivlou lake, the enormous rocky mountains of Meteora, the natural pools of Samothrace and so many other beautiful Greek places. After years of traveling and staying as close to nature as possible you realize that you truly are a part of it. Next thing you want is all your creations to be in harmony and respect your general lifestyle. This is why Ι came up with the idea of a Greek, natural, eco-friendly cosmetic brand.

I always enjoyed handcrafts, the idea of creating something unique with your own signature. Being a chemist myself, it was only natural to turn to the cosmetic industry. It combines my love for science and humanity in the most creative way. An MSc in Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Industry gave me the necessary tools and experience to start crafting my own creations. After lots of studying on traditional and new recipes, experimenting with "green" methods and ingredients, trying and failing, the first products came to light. They looked nice... but don’t we always need a second opinion?

This is the point when Eri joined the team. A natural born hand-craftswoman and strict critic, she is the problem solver and problem creator. Always overflowing with new ideas, she knows how to calm down fears and anxiety and puts pressure when needed. Optimization is her thing.

Now our products needed a name, an identity. What better choice than the place where they were actually born? Greek nature, tradition and mythology. Nymphs in Greek mythology are divine spirits who animate nature, and are usually depicted as beautiful, young nubile maidens. We love Nymphs because they are ethereal but not immortal, beautiful but not perfect, in one word: Natural! So, every product was named after a Nymph, and the product's ingredients are connected to her story.

Our cosmetics started out as gifts to our loved ones, then came special orders, and before we knew it... it had already begun. Our own natural handmade cosmetic brand!
