Tilia

Tilia’s beeswax products are all-natural cosmetics inspired by the traditional Greek “keralifi”.

Discovery

 

Tillia, a brand renowned for its pristine beeswax products, approached us to include them on our site and I am delighted we did so as their soothing and remedial cosmetics are of excellent quality. The packaging is designed with a bold aesthetic and vibrant colouring. 

 

Tilia are environmentally friendly as the brand is deeply invested in nature and does not use any synthetic source materials or chemical processing. Tilia is against animal testing and cruelty and constantly monitor the quality control of their producers and suppliers. Additionally, they aim for sustainability by using only recycled and recyclable packaging.

Most of their products use extra virgin olive oil and beeswax as a base, ingredients that have been used for millennia, not merely for beauty but also for healing purposes.

 

Tilia products have a distinctive anhydrous recipe. This means that none of their ingredients contains water and thus act in an undiluted form.

The brand features a Multi-Purpose Skincare balm a solution for deep skin hydration and intensive care for small burns and insect bites, a non-chemical Nature Inspired Deodorant, a Wondrous Serum and a Mum and Baby All Natural beeswax butter. 

 

 

Memory



Tilia’s two founders, Thanassis Fotou and Natalia Bazaiou, used to work together in the construction sector, one as a civil engineer and the other as an architect. They decided as a couple to change careers to invest their time and effort in Tilia.

 

It all started when their very young son developed a skin irritation, they tried every product on the market but could not find the cure. Then they decided to follow their grandmother’s suggestion and make their very own balm based on a simple recipe of a traditional wax salve and their son was healed. “We always embraced the natural way of living, yet even we could not believe how immediate the results were”, Natasha says.

After a lot of research and many trials they were able to evolve the original recipe into a finalized product. Thereafter, they enriched their product team with specialists, visual artists, marketeers, and other professionals as their range grew.

Narration

 

The inspiration for Tilia is the trusted Greek tradition of “keralifi” with an investment in the selection of raw materials. The couple knows their producers personally, the way they work, and avoid collaborating with suppliers who favour large production. The beeswax and olive oil they use come from two single producers.

For Tilia’s founders their most exciting challenge is the improvement of their current products and the design and development of new ones. In the future they want Tilia’s family of products to grow with new items, like scrubs, pumice, and semi-precious crystals.
