from a dream to reality...
In 1890 the pharmacy of Evangelos Rafalias (1869-1936), was founded in Hydra, grandfather of the current owner and today’s pharmacist. The latter preserved in his mother's old notebook (which was from the first female pharmacists in Greece in the middle of the last century and wife of the Dr. Andreas Rafalias) recipes which she had created based on the Greek Pharmacology of 1924 and 1931 making creams, lotions and perfumes from pure materials, when she took over the pharmacy on May 1947.
Chamomile, jasmine, Arabic jasmine and gardenias, flowers of lemon and orange trees, honeysuckle were used to extract the essential oils and pure olive oil to produce perfumes and soaps. Unique and enviable creams with a grand variety of scents, essences of rose, peppermint, sandalwood, laurel oil, lavender.
