About Us

We are located in Limassol, the international business centre of Cyprus. Our beautiful island in the north-eastern corner of the Mediterranean Sea is within close reach of East and Western Europe, the Middle East, the Asian and the African continents. Throughout history Cyprus has always been a part of the important international trade routes.

At our clinic in Limassol, Dr Svetlana Verhoeven-Iliazova provides since 2007 a range of anti-ageing and aesthetic medical treatments including dermal filling and sculpting, mesotherapy, neuromodulators and chemical peelings (click here for more information about our clinic).

Aesthetic medical treatments, when performed by a qualified, trained and experienced doctor are very effective and yield excellent results but they are overall not cheap and they need to be repeated on a regular basis. Besides, aesthetic medical treatments alone are not enough to keep a young and attractive appearance if they are not combined with a healthy lifestyle and good skin care products.

Through our experience in the aesthetic medical market we have built up an extensive knowledge of good quality cosmetic products with active ingredients, commonly known as "cosmeceutics" or “cosmeceuticals”.

The term “cosmeceuticals” refers to the combination of “cosmetics” and “pharmaceuticals”: non-prescription cosmetic products which contain active ingredients that influence the biological function of the skin. Cosmeceuticals improve the appearance of the skin, combat skin irregularities, deliver nutrients which are necessary for a healthy skin and they help to withstand external stressors leading to premature ageing.

The cosmeceutical market is presently the fastest-growing segment of the personal care industry. As a result of society’s fascination with maintaining a youthful appearance and the global ageing of the population, this market is expanding at an accelerated rate and a large and fast growing portion of this business is happening online.

When we opened our clinic we decided to offer our patients a limited range of cosmeceuticals which are sometimes hard to find in the retail business. Cosmeceuticals are usually not sold by beauticians or perfumeries; rather by pharmacies and doctors. Our suppliers of medical products were found to be also importing and distributing a number of cosmeceutical brands, which we studied, tested and out of which we made a selection.

The result of that selection can be found on this website with a full guarantee that all the products we offer are original and genuine and purchased only from the relevant official brand importers and distributors. Another guarantee we offer is that we have tried ourselves and/or through our patients the reliability and efficiency of each and every product offered.

Products are sorted by brands, indications and areas of use. We also offer a number of sets or kits of products which we have composed, because sometimes one product can cure a problem, but a combination of different products can do so better and faster.

We aim to slowly, but steadily, increase the range of products we offer, always based on our above described philosophy, due to the worldwide growth of the market of cosmeceuticals and the appearance of new products, as a result of extensive and never ending scientific research by specialized pharmaceutical and biomedical companies.
