The Project OLIÓFORA has started in 2013 by two friends: Elisabete and Dasha. One born in Trás-os-Montes, Portugal, and the other in St.Petersburg, Russia. We are both in love with Portugal and its generous fruitful land. The idea was to start our own agro-industrial business and make a different use of some wonderful raw materials that grow abundant on the North of Portugal and sometimes even end up lost in garbage after being processed for other purposes, like for example, wine production.
We carefully learnt about the current market needs and resolved to go towards eco cosmetics industry. These days people opt for high quality ingredients that come from nature. We all surf internet to search for more information about what exactly we use to nourish our body. Most of cosmetic brands include various plant oils as main ingredient in all sorts of products: face, body and hair oils, creams, shampoos, soaps, etc. We formulate all our products on the basis of our oils, so even hygene products do not make your skin dry.
Portugal has an amasing microclimate on the North of the country that is perfect for growing grapes and nuts like almond, walnut and hazelnut. Moreover whatever you put in this soil will grow and flourish! Elisabete was born in Vila Flor, Bragança region, that is famous for its olive oil, maybe the sweetest in the world! She knows the land and, most important, she knows people who work on this land. Bragança region is well known for its almond groves. We process almonds directly from "bio friendly" farmers and in the nearest future will be planting our own trees.
Our small plant is located in Amarante, beautiful white town surrounded with mountains. We are using only the best machinery, equipment and materials to ensure the highest quality of our products and we look forward to send you the samples for testing.
