3. SUPPORT OF ARTS AND TRADITION
According to scientific reports, new generations tend to abandon traditional crafts, facing the economic disadvantages in comparison to the rapidly growing industrial production of low cost products, in massive quantities.
Art crafts such as pottery for instance, survive nowadays in a form of free time activity, as human needs of everyday life are satisfied by the industrial production.
Unfortunately, other types of traditional arts such as the loom, face the real risk of disappearing.
Aura Kritis respects the Cretan tradition and acts towards its conservation. Natural cosmetic in Aura Kritis are prepared utilizing methods deeply rooted in Cretan tradition, with soap making being the most notable example.
“All our soaps are produced following the traditional home soaping method, known today as the cold process. The soap created is allowed to dry patiently for at least a period of two months. This is how our ancestors did it and this is the tradition we follow”.
Moreover, Aura Kritis wishes to support Arts and underline the value of creativity, through handmade designs decorating the outer packaging of our natural skin care products.
Our team in Aura Kritis feels deep respect for all the passionate and skillful artisans. We believe that every talent must be supported and strengthened; every occupation that brings joy must be encouraged.
