Our Ethos is deeply rooted in the concept of "Kallos"
Greece was the first place on earth where Wellness was scientifically described since antiquity, as the best possible physical state of Mind & Body that man can acquire and maintain, according to Hippocrates. Today, on behalf of Greece, we claim the identity of the "authencity" of the wellbeing experience. The first Health Tourism Destinations of the west, the first spas of the wold, were the thermal springs of Ancient Greece, the Asklepiia, where Holistic Medicine for the treatments of soul, mind and body was applied and taught. Nowadays, the main approach of modern science is the Wellness of Greek Kallos.
Kallos had no gender in Ancient Greece and wasn’t confined to the external appearance either. It embraced both physical beauty and the virtues of the soul, representing the harmonious balance between the body, soul, and mind. Greeks knew how to pursue it through rituals that were offered as a symbol of hospitality, care and faith to the gods. This ancient wisdom recognised the therapeutic effects of self-care, which remain important in our lives today. At Onar, we aim a bespoke path to define and embody your 'Kallos' on a personalized journey of self-discovery and inner harmony inspired by ancient rituals and developed by the latest scientific innovation.
Speaking the language of the ultimate, ideal wellness - the one that radiates true balance of body, mind and soul.
Onar speaks a different language. It is the language of “Kallos” – the ultimate wellness you dream of –, built with the alphabet of skin wellness. Its vocabulary focuses on achieving true balance of body, mind and soul, since this is where beauty originates from; and its grammar consists of recipes that ideally combine ancient Greek knowledge, nature’s wisdom and modern cosmetic technology. This language requires no learning – it is a beauty and wellness experience you feel, through products and services purely organic, strictly sustainable, humanely created, truly luxurious, ever luminous.
