The precious active anti-aging substances and the high concentration of herbs extracts, make the Vicus Tuscus cosmetics highly effective, fresh and with a great skin tolerance capability. The herbs from which the ingredients are extracted are picked and used fresh, according to the “0 Km” philosophy.
Vicus Tuscus, in synergy with Torraccia di Chiusi, retraces the ancient traditions of Tuscany and the valuable customs of the ancient people who used to live here.
The valley where the Torracia di Chiusi is and the Vicus Tuscus works is on the Via Francigena and it has been populated since the Etruscan age.
Here the archaeological evidence confirms that this was right the ancient land of Etruria, described by the ancient historians as the richest in vegetation and variety of officinal plants.
The cosmetic line “Vicus Tuscus” takes its name from the Etruscan district of ancient Rome, next to the Forum – today it’s Via San Teodoro al Velabro. During the Imperial Age, it has been the real “route of perfumers”, due to its Etruscan laboratories that would produce customized beauty lotions and perfumes for the rich Roman matrons.
Vicus Tuscus organic certifications are released by IMC (Istituto Mediterraneo di Certificazione), BIOAGRICERT e ICEA.
