The research work titled "Aromatic & Medicinal Plants Protect Our Health and Preserve Our Cosmetics" has begun.
Mellifora's goal is to be able to create cosmetics without chemical preservatives or other harmful substances, rich in natural ingredients that boost our health and wellness without side-effects. We have been able to produce with care and zest pure, natural, herbal cosmetics without chemical preservatives and that is why they have a short expiry date. Now, we are investigating the antimicrobial action of substances that we extract from the aromatic plants of the greater Olympus area.
The research investigates: a) the effectiveness of ingredients in the fight against skin micro-organisms that cause skin acne problems and b) the effectiveness in fighting bacteria and fungi in the product itself in order to increase its durability.
The first results of the survey are already very encouraging. A first announcement of these results will be held at the 15th Pan-Hellenic Scientific Conference of the Hellenic Botanical Society, which will be held from 14 to 17 September 2017 in Crete. The research on the antimicrobial activity of our herbal cosmetic products was undertaken by Dr. Mamoucha S. and Dr. Prompana A., from the National Center for Research in Natural Sciences "Demokritos", as well as the Deputy Director of the Department of Microbiology of the NIMTS and Liapis B. Part of the experiments will be carried out in the Department of Pharmacy of the University Of Athens.
