Semeli – Greek inspired natural skin and hair care range

Organic olive oil is the key ingredient in Semeli, a new range of unisex natural skin and hair care products made in Greece.

[UKPRwire, Wed Sep 27 2006] Exclusively launched in the UK by Scinatol, the Semeli range has organic olive oil as its base ingredient, combined with a selection of active botanical extracts. For centuries, olive oil has played a part in many beauty regimes. Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, olive oil is scientifically proven to offer deep hydration, toning and skin protection. Combined with a selection of skin-friendly herbal extracts, from Greek and international flora, Semeli nourishes the skin and supports a healthy, firm and youthful look.

The whole range is free from petroleum derivatives, contains no paraben synthetic preservatives and is suitable for vegetarians. Where possible, the subtle fragrances come from essential oils and are free of allergens. The products are produced in a licensed pharmaceutical factory and are dermatologically tested.

“We should be just as concerned about what we apply to our bodies on the surface as what we put in our mouths and eat, as a percentage of what we apply to our skin is absorbed into the bloodstream,” says Malcolm White, Joint Owner of Scinatol.

“Our aim is to offer products which are helpful to people of all ages – not just the glamour models shown on our screens. Both women and men have a right to good quality skin and hair products.”

If you’re fed up of having a cluttered bathroom full of products for him and her, you’re in luck. Semeli is designed for both men and women, so you can share products and cut down on clutter.

Invigorating, rejuvenating and regenerating, the range includes products such as Moisturizing Anti-Aging Day Cream for Dry and Sensitive Skin, with aloe vera, vitamin E and co-enzyme Q10 (£24.45 for 50ml), Shampoo for Oily Hair, with rosemary, nettle and green tea (£6.95 for 250ml), Moisturizing Protective Hand and Nail Cream, with vitamin E, sweet almond oil, shea butter and calendula (£10.95 for 150ml) and Revitalising Shower Gel with cedar wood and ginseng (£6.95 for 300ml).

The organic olive oil is obtained from the Agreco farm in Crete, which is where some of the first olive groves were founded thousands of years ago. The climate there is reputed to produce the finest olive oil in the world.

The products have been developed over a two year period, using the knowledge and wisdom of centuries of Greek beauty traditions, combined with modern scientific research. The result is a fantastic line of natural beauty products perfect for men and women of all ages who want only the best for their skin.

The Semeli range is available by mail order, from selected retail stores or online from Scinatol – Tel: 0845 838 5354 for details of stockists or to place an order, or email
