In a country where the sun shines 80 percent of the year, skin protection is a matter of paramount importance. We know the reasons all too well. The sun is responsible for premature aging of the skin and, more seriously, skin cancer. Without wishing to demonize the sun – don’t forget that it keeps us warm, improves our mood and contributes to the synthesis of vitamin D – we should realize that, in order to enjoy it responsibly, we must take proper precautions in a timely manner and use sun protection daily.

Greek cosmetic companies are here to help your skin. They draw on their experience and on modern advances in science to produce high-quality cosmetic products that are effective and easy to use.

Try some of the products from Apivita, Fredyderm, Carroten, Benostan, Solene, and Korres.
