The Community of Vegans in Cyprus will definitely love this movement as its the first online store on Cyprus to offer 100% Vegan products with no animal products or by products.
All the products are handmade by Marina G. Roussou. She is the creative mind and formulator. Marina founded this business because she wanted to share her passion and knowledge about natural ingredients in skincare, and show people the great results that can be achieved with them. Marina is always striving to deliver freshly developed products with all botanical goodness and at the same time make products you can afford. She is also the founder of Spirituality in Cyprus: A New Consciousness and through her efforts now has a community related to Spirituality in Cyprus on her facebook community page.
Vegenero strives to produce skincare that is away from a chemical lab, and using simple wholesome ingredients with all the botanical goodness found in nature. She creates products that are gentle and nourishing to the skin.
Marina measures, weighs, mixes, stirs, pours, and cuts every product she makes. The small variations in the shape of the soap bars are a testament to the handmade nature of the production. Marina makes soaps the old fashioned way with the very same technique our ancestors made from the very beginning of soap making. Marina use both the Cold and Hot process method of making soaps. The only difference in both of these methods is just its appearance. The Cold process method gives a smoother, more sophisticated bar of soap and the Hot process method gives the soap a raw, rustic and textured look.
Cold vs. Hot Process Method Soaps:
The curing of both methods can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks. Making soaps is indeed a slow process that Marina does not like to rush, and like all good things it is worth the wait.
Our products are Vegan, free of toxins and harsh chemicals, free of Palm Oil, Mineral Oil, Petroleum, SLS, SLES, & Free of Parabens.
Vegenero only uses Pure Essential Oils and we DO NOT USE Artificial Substances like Fragrance Oils & Synthetic Perfumes. Ingredients that you can read and understand and always tested on my friends and not on our furry animals.
Vegenero makes a conscious effort to use environmentally friendly packaging materials. The majority of our products come in aluminum tins and bottles and for practicality and cost savings to our customers we had to make the decision to use some PET containers for some of our products. PET plastic, unlike PVC is fully recyclable and if it is put in landfill degrades without leaching any chemicals into the soil. The energy used in recycling a PET plastic bottle is about 1/10 of the energy used in recycling a plastic bottle.
