About Us

“For us, our customers are our family. They are the driving force of our development and share a common vision with us. After all, I believe that a company should not be a sterile organization producing financial results. It must be a place of creation and inspiration for the citizens. Even for those who are not its customers”.

Our History

Nemertes is a purely organic, Greek cosmetics company founded by Nikolaos Kontogiannis. Our vision is to offer people a better standard of living by introducing them to the secrets of wellness and well-being.
Our products are based on pure, superior quality extra virgin olive oils combined with precious oils, herbs and primordial healing materials from the Greek land. With this in mind, we are able to create products for personal use and pleasure in imaginative combinations, whilst collectively respecting the environment and mankind.

Our Philosophy

Nemertes is a mythological figure mentioned in the Iliad. She is the daughter of Nereus and Oceanida Dorida, granddaughter of the Ocean, nymph of the sea and one of the fifty Nereids. In this sense, our corporate philosophy expresses the people who follow and achieve their goals. The liquid element reflects human emotions. As the sea is sometimes calm and serene and sometimes stormy, so man is sometimes calm and sometimes sad and angry. Nemertes has been known since ancient times for her philanthropy and we endeavour to follow in her footsteps by building true and stable relationships, full of transparency with our customers, suppliers and the wider society.

    SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY

    One of the fundamental values and one of the most important operating principles of Nemertes is the contribution to the progress and prosperity of the Greek society. This is a very important factor since it largely determines the long-term and sustainable business activity and success of the company. The result of the adoption of these principles is the development of a corporate culture from which derives our intention to act responsibly in all areas that are important elements of sustainable development and include the market, shareholders, employees, society and the environment.
