All of your products are natural?
Our cosmetics contain natural ingredients in a large amount (over 90%). Just a low percentage of them are preservatives and fragrances. All the ingredients that we use are hypoallergenic, absolutely safe and approved by the E.U. Cosmetic Regulations.
Where do your ingredients come from?
Our ingredients are carefully selected and come from Greece and all over the world. The majority of them are edible. They are tested and approved by the E.U. In many of our products there is a percentage of organic oils and butters. Olive oil, the most important, is the greek “gold” for cosmetics, an ingredient produced all over Greece and a basic element of the Mediterranean diet.
Do Carystea cosmetics contain GM (genetically modified) ingredients?
Of course not! Our products are created by non modified ingredients. In addition they are paraben, propylene glycol, paraffin oil, silicones and mineral oil free.
Do you test on animals?
Definitely not! Our philosophy is against animal testing. The dermatological (patch) tests are performed exclusively on humans with no risk of their life. Plus, we support the campaign against animal abuse/ cruelty and we do not use palm oil that its cultivation is to blame for the destruction of large areas of tropical forests and other ecosystems with high conservation values.
Where do you produce your cosmetics?
Our cosmetics are produced in a lab approved by the national supervisory Organization and comply with the E.U. Regulations. Chemical testing, clinical and dermatological controls have been accomplished.
What is the shelf life of Carystea products?
Our products have a minimum of three years of shelf-life un-opened and 12-24 months (depending on the product). Of course, because of their natural composition, we suggest you keep them in s cool, dry and shady place.

Your products are suitable for vegetarians/vegans?
Our products are designed by us for us. For that reason the majority of them are vegan with some exceptions in which beeswax is used.
