We are Soma, a natural skincare company inspired by wellbeing and botanical aesthetic. Through the art of skincare we combine new, up and coming ingredients with botanical and Mediterranean remedies for their skin healing properties. With ingredients ranging from Activated Charcoal to Blue Chamomile essential oil we create effective and unique formulations with pure botanical ingredients. Named after the Greek word Σώμα/Soma, we are located in Thessaloniki, Greece and we support the holistic approach to skincare through a healthy lifestyle and a calming mind and spirit. Natural beauty should become the expression of your unique spirit and personality, which rules the way you treat your body and set up your mind. Founded in Thessaloniki by Elena Poulopoulou, Soma brings you skincare that is natural and effective. We create products that are pure, effective and natural by combining essential oils, minerals and botanicals to restore skin to its optimum health and vitality. All of our products are always carefully handcrafted in small batches, mainly vegan, cruelty free and natural, free of artificial colors, GMOs, parabens and sulfates.
The Whole-istic approach
A holistic health approach simply means looking at and treating something as a whole, and not just parts of it. The underlying philosophy is that these parts are interrelated and interdependent – balance, and thus health can only be achieved if all the parts are working properly. It means looking for the causes as opposed to simply just treating symptoms. It acknowledges that our environment and inner imbalances (physical, emotional, mental) can have serious consequences for our health, thus we need to take everything into account if we would like to restore that balance. In the case of skin care, a holistic approach means that putting on an expensive moisturizer on our face is not enough. It only treats one part of the skin – the outer layer, and only temporarily. But the overall health of our skin (remember, it is our largest organ) depends on so much more than that. It’s not enough to treat it from the outside only. We have to nurture it from the inside as well. The status and look of skin depend on many factors – from ingredients we use, through our lifestyle choices (diet, exercise) and the environmental stressors we meet, to our emotional and mental well-being.
