According to legend, the goddess Aphrodite rose from the foaming & frothy waters off the coast of Cyprus. The Cypriots so enamored with the goddess gave her a name in honor of their shared home, Kypris.
Unlike the common retellings of Aphrodite’s stories in which she is beautiful yet haughty, the ethos of Kypris has retained Her pre-Hellenic, divinely feminine roots. War never conquered Her. The goddess exudes sensuality voluptuous with love & wisdom, a bastion of sisterhood & family. A healing & inclusive energy. She derives her Beauty from communion with Nature, both within and of the Earth, one & the same. Detoxifying contemplative baths. Anointments of exotic oils & unguents. Her renowned Beauty has always been & still is the ecstasy of Being.
"I founded KYPRIS upon the truth that feeling Beautiful is a birthright. That Beauty is not some reductive, externalized goal, but a vital spiritual experience of Love, acceptance & pleasure. When we take time to properly care for ourselves, the joy we feel infuses our wellbeing & days, resonates throughout our families & communities & exponentially enhances our quality of life. I want this for myself & I want this for you.
As I work with our team to source ingredients & create offerings, every decision made for our formulas & marketing are guided by the principle that Beauty can only be created from Beauty itself: Beauty from Beauty.
I am of the very strong opinion that to create an effective, truly sustainable selection of products, the powers of green science must be selectively implemented in formulas along with a re-focus on authentic, luminous Beauty. For some of us, at different times for different reasons, our Beauty, that potent lens, is more challenging to locate. Beauty comes from within in the sense that how you feel & experience yourself & the world is of vital importance. I see KYPRIS offerings as tools for loving self care rituals that make people feel amazing. You are the magic ingredient & gentleness is the alchemical elixir. If your desires are expansive, actually loving & wellness-enhancing, these are worth taking seriously & delivering upon.
What makes KYPRIS entirely unique is the inextricable alignment of KYPRIS creations with the reconciliation of each of these values. These tools for self care are one way to fulfill the divine desire for a beautiful experience of ourselves without a hint of compromise to our health or integrity. A truly sustainable luxury that creates & offers wellness & an experience of your divinely unique Beauty..." - says Chase Polan, the Founder of Kypris.
Often sustainability refers exclusively to ecological concerns. As a holistic brand, KYPRIS recognizes sustainability as both an environmental & social imperative.
KYPRIS ingredients come from both the US & from sustainable sources around the world. Some are propagated in labs, yet most are grown in fields, sometimes in remote places with developing economies.
KYPRIS love their certified organic ingredients. Yet, occasionally the company feel comfortable sourcing from suppliers who do not have certification even though no questionable chemicals are used to produce the crops & raw materials. This allows KYPRIS to purchase from small farms & co-ops throughout the world. In some cases, an ingredient supports an entire community & in others it provides opportunities for additional income.
When procuring KYPRIS ingredients & creating products, the company work to offer you the best of science & Nature while simultaneously honoring the communities from where they come and, in turn, honoring you.
KYPRIS is GOLD certified by the US Green Business Association, California Prop 65 Compliant, a member of LOHASIA & a member of The Green Spa Network of which KYPRIS founder, Chase Polan, sits on their Personal Care committee.
