Using original formulas dating back as far as the 13th century, Officina Profumo — Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella is one of the world’s oldest pharmacies, founded in Florence in 1221 by the Dominican Friars. In 1612, the pharmacy opened to the public and although they have since introduced several new items, many of their original products still remain the most popular. Today, under the direction of Eugenio Alfandery, Santa Maria Novella products are all made at their own factory in Florence, using local ingredients whenever possible and never testing on animals. With a combination of old-world formulations and new methods and technologies, Santa Maria Novella bridges the gap between the traditional and the modern, resulting in an uncompromising end product of the highest standards.
