The name Kosmida takes its inspiration from the Greek island of Kos, in the heart of the Mediterranean region, where Hippocrates was born and began working, and where he formulated the first principles of scientific medicine, which gave rise to a tradition that became part of Roman society.

The knowledge and techniques of the tabernae mediche and the temples themselves - hospitals where genuine specialist medical and pharmacological activities were practised - were used in ancient Rome alongside the culture of spas and the treatment of the whole person as the first rule of wellbeing.

The progress achieved during the thousand years of Roman history spread throughout the known world and has continued to advance through great western societies to the present day.

The great wisdom of medieval monks and tireless Renaissance researchers, who conducted increasingly sophisticated experiments which led to discoveries that are the source of modern dermatology and latest generation disciplines such as cosmeceutical and nutraceutical science, have been revived in Kosmida today.

Hippocrates, the father of western medicine
For many years, before the advent of pharmaceutical industry and modern dermo-cosmetic and nutraceutical technologies, remedies for personal health and the beauty of the skin were administered by practitioners of Galenic medicine, such as herbalists, apothecaries and phytotherapists.
