Ilianna Vrouvaki was born in the small town of Chania, in Crete. Being always attracted by the island’s miraculous Nature and guided by her desire to offer to society, gradually the dream was born: to create natural cosmetics, enclosing the beneficial properties of Cretan flora.
She devoted happily to this goal for years, with dedication and enthusiasm. Today she is a top-of-the-class Chemist, awarded by the Association of Greek Chemists, with a Master’s degree in Pharmaceuticals - Cosmetic Technology and a remarkable series of research publications in international reputable scientific journals.
In fact, her work on nano-carriers of essential oils won an award at the NanoBio International Conference and was recently published in the prestigious journal Pharmaceutics.
Now, she is dedicated to her childhood dream: the preparation of natural cosmetics from Cretan land, bearing the signature "Aura Kritis”.
