THE DOLOMITE ARCHIPELAGO
What makes the Dolomites so different from other mountain chains?
The answer lies in the rock whose name has been given to our make-up and skincare products. Dolomite rock comes from the ancient fossil reef and contains a large amount of organic elements: seaweed and molluscs from the Triassic period which encouraged and characterised the dolomitisation process.
The area which inspired Dolomia and its philosophy is actually an ancient archipelago of coral atolls.
Just like a pile of books about nature, the layers in the Dolomite rock reveal the delicate balance between the biosphere and geosphere over the past 300 million years. The pages of this “rock book” tell of the evolution of this ancient environment, which witnessed the birth of new life but also great destruction.
It is thanks to these momentous processes that today we can source very special active ingredients in the Dolomites and admire them in all their splendour.
