„Abbate Y La Mantia“
Abbate Y La Mantia is an Italian family brand whose handmade shaving soaps, lotions and other body care products are known and loved around the world.
Each product of this brand is a separate interesting story in which quality and the past are intertwined. Abbate Y La Mantia has discovered a natural way to maximize the effects of saffron and turn it into cosmetic products with unique properties.
The discovery and development of ancient procedures and methods allows us to keep the active ingredients intact, providing natural everyday luxury every day.
Driven by passion, a family that has grown and harvested saffron using traditional methods for the last 20 years in the beautiful Maremma hills of Italy's Grosseto province, is able to maximize the cosmetic benefits of saffron.
Saffron pistils are obtained from crocus flowers, strictly hand-picked so as not to damage other parts of the plant. In order to produce a kilo of saffron, around 170,000 flowers have to be collected by hand, over a period of six weeks (flowering period) and must be picked early in the morning to preserve the properties of the spice.
This spice is the most expensive in the world due to its meticulous handwork. The use of saffron pistils in other fields arose from the rediscovery of cosmetic principles well known more than 3,500 years ago.
