Helleo is a small, creative, sustainable business located on the Greek island of Crete, producing high quality natural, handmade soaps and room fragrances from organic extra virgin olive oil.
Founder Manos comes from a family of olive farmers, inheriting his own olive groves from his grandparents. He has continued to cultivate these olive trees in the natural way, with no pesticides, tilling or burning. But instead of focusing on selling the raw olive oil, Manos has developed the business to make soap from the quality olive oil he produces.
He has also diversified the business to set up his own natural food forest where he grows fruit, flowers and herbs. Any waste is composted and used to feed the plants and trees. And it is these high-quality, organic ingredients that are used in the unique soap bar blends Helleo produces, along with other ingredients from small local farms, where they know the producers personally.
The uniqueness of the Helleo products and production process is illustrated on their beautifully designed packaging so that the customer can enjoy the story. All materials used in the packaging are plastic-free and 100% recyclable or compostable.
Olive Oil Soaps are some of the mildest, most hydrating and highest quality soaps that can be made. Helleo soaps are available in two sizes (120g and 30g) and 6 blends and to complement the soap bars, Helleo also produces an ecological and environmentally friendly Accoya Wood Soap Dish. Made from wood produced from sustainably managed sources, it is water-resistant and ideal for airing the soap between uses.
