Wholly Natural Skincare | 8th round

My first job as a chemist was in one of the largest companies in the cosmetics industry in Athens. During that time I learned how to control the production, packaging and compliance of products with the legislative standards. As I deepened into the world of ingredients, I wanted to learn more about the composition of cosmetics. So I acquired a qualified diploma in the specific field and I started researching, studying and compiling formulas. Soon the joy that I felt when I was composing and creating my own products became the driving force to become an entrepreneur. My goal was to develop a skin care line of high quality and natural components, using herbal ingredients that are gentle for all skin types, even the most sensitive.

After years of research and development, the scientific part has almost been completed. I joined Venture Garden to set the right path in order to successfully launch Wholly Natural Skincare.

Venture Garden has been a great value for me. I met distinguished members of the Greek business ecosystem and I learned great things from their success stories, and most of all from their difficulties along the way. I shared my goals and anxieties with them and I realized that I was not alone in my entrepreneurship journey.
