Our Story begun...
... in a KitchenPlease allow us to introduce Hermann Gourmet Cosmetics, a vintage inspired line of hand-made beauty products from the beautiful Mediterranean island of Cyprus.
Philio Hermann started our adventure in her kitchen in Nicosia, with a dream, a desire and an inspiration; balms (based on a 2000 year-old recipe), face & body creams, face& body scrubs, perfumed soaps, handmade face soaps, luxury perfumes and candles that combine ancient beauty recipes with active ingredients of the latest beauty technology, with a sprinkle of timeless vintage elegance and charm.
Today, after several years, we have become an enthusiastic team of top experts, including dermatologists, cosmetologists,chemists, botanists and beauticians, operating a small factory located in the island’s capital. The Flagship store of Hermann Gourmet Cosmetics opened in 2019, on Mnasiadou 11H & Stasikratous corner, in the heart of Lefkosia.
Made exclusively in Cyprus, our cosmetics consist of primarily domestic, Fair Trade, biological raw materials supporting local professionals and small production units.
Our elegant, vintage-inspired collection includes balms (based on a 2000 year-old recipe), face & body creams, face & body scrubs, perfumed soaps, handmade face soaps, luxury perfumes and candles that combine ancient beauty recipes with active ingredients of the latest beauty technology, with a sprinkle of timeless vintage elegance and charm.
We are constantly inspired by our rich legacy and try to reflect the allure of our island in every possible way through our brand. We create signature scents of Cyprus like gardenia and jasmine, while Cypriot women who lived in the 1930s jewel our packaging. We also have a soft spot for our local flora and fauna, as shown by the feathers on the packages of our handmade face soaps and the wreath on our awarded Bee Eye cream that features matsikorida, moshokarfia, myrofores and other local flowers.
Childhood memories, scents, timeless elegance, inspiration and love for what we do are the secret ingredients in our cosmetics recipes. That is our true passion.
From Hermann's kitchen, with love to the world!
