But Pelliclub Health & Beauty goes even further by ensuring that all wellness and beauty rituals are performed entirely by hand. Slowly. Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella was founded 400 years ago as a laboratory of Dominican monks who used the medicinal herbs cultivated in their own gardens to prepare medications, unguents and ointments for use in the monastery’s infirmary. Florentine lords soon learned of the quality and effectiveness of the monks’ products and began buying them to treat themselves. This is how the therapeutic remedies and perfumes for noblemen using citrus essences and flowers came to be discovered by the public. After four centuries, Officina di Santa Maria Novella has become a true cosmetic industry, but one that has retained its artisanal soul.
