Hungary – a land blessed with fruits, vegetables and herbs that draw they succulence from the soil and thermal hot springs of the Carpathian basin long known for being rich in minerals and trace elements found nowhere else on earth.
A country in Eastern Europe with a long history of using locally available ingredients in their healing treatments. Due to the soil, the somewhat dry climate and abundance of sunshine, Hungarian herbs and fruits are proven to contain higher concentrations of active ingredients and aromatic agents than the world average. From these ingredients a woman named Ilike Molnar, lovingly known as “Aunt Ilike” (i-lee-ke) began creating organic skincare products since the late 50’s.
Made from whole raw herb, fruit and vegetable pulps – not extracts – ilike products harness the full potency of herbal ingredients that only the rind, skin and seeds in combination with the juices can actively deliver. Every ilike product is full of vitamins, minerals, fruit acids, polyphenols and bioflavonoids. These combined with other active ingredients ensure that they not only indulge and pamper but also treat, nourish and beautify the skin. Rejuvenating begins from the inside out. And ilike’s products and passion are about a holistic means to healthier skin. Ingredients and products are certified organic (BDIH), paraben free, GMO free, gluten free and nut free.
Aunt Ilcsi combined the family knowledge of herbal remedies with schooling at Vienna’s highly renowned Aesthetics School. Upon graduation with extensive study in biochemistry she began researching and developing all natural and organic skincare products. She believes, as her grandmother the village herbalist taught her, that what we need to maintain health and beauty can be drawn from nature around us.
From this heritage come the professional products of ilike organic skincare from Szép Élet, made in small batches from organically grown and handpicked herbs, fruits and vegetables, and containing the highest possible levels of organic active ingredients. For over 55 years in practice and through extensive research these potent, natural ingredients have demonstrated their therapeutic and beautifying effects resulting in clear, balanced and glowing complexions.
