Who we are
All over the world, people are being re-educated with regards to the benefits of using all things natural particularly products with direct contact to the human body with special emphasis on toiletries, beauty creams, and all other products related to personal grooming and the general well being of our skin, our hair and our entire body.
Pharmascienta Egypt specializes in producing a line of 100% natural all handmade Egyptian accentuated body care products free from preservatives, chemicals, colors, and artificial fragrances.
The company was started in 1998 by Dr. Mona Erian A pharmacist by profession, Mona created her first natural body care product out of necessity. “It all began five years ago when my daughter used a shampoo which literally burned her scalp. I searched for a natural shampoo but could not find a single one. Since I am a pharmacist, I decided to make one myself using natural ingredients. I made a pure olive oil soap and was surprised by the result. I luckily got it right the first time.”
With a vision to increase the awareness of people regarding the harmful danger of chemicals in our lives and the benefits of chemical-free products, Dr. Erian’s passion for all things natural prompted her to start a cottage industry producing a small line of soaps, this line slowly expanded to include a multitude of natural products. The range of products is known as “Nefertari” – the most beautiful of them all. This line ranges from soaps, bath and body care products to a line of clothing known as the “Nefertari off white line”.
The idea behind Nefertari Products is to sincerely produce a healthy 100% natural, chemical-free, Egyptian accentuated body care product using natural Egyptian raw materials and natural untreated packaging to preserve the environment whilst contributing to the development of the marginalized communities in Egypt by enhancing their level of living and offering them jobs and sustainable incomes.
The Nefertari range also benefits from it’s “Egyptianism”, as all products have a very special Egyptian allure and are connected in several ways to the mystic l
and of the Pharaohs.
In fact, several of the products and ingredients were actually used by Pharaohs like the Nefertari kohl for the eyes from natural gum and Cleopatra’s milk bath – in the description of the Nefertari, goats milk soap and milk bath a reference made to Cleopatra and her use of goats milk soap in her daily beauty routine. Moreover, several of the packagings of Nefertari’s products are identical copies of the containers shown at the Egyptian Museum used by the Pharaohs Queens long time ago.
Additionally, we are keen to use all the dark blue color as the main color in fonts and embroideries as the color comes from a plant that used to grow on the River Nile called “el Nila” which was used by Ancient Egyptian to get the dark blue color which was used to paint the ceilings of their tombs.
The outcome is exceptional 100% natural chemical-free Egyptian body care products, beautifully packaged with a distinctive Egyptian allure. Nowadays so many people are afraid to label anything as “Made in Egypt”, but we at Nefertari are proud that all our products are hand made in Egypt.
“Nefertari means "the most beautiful of them all".
She was the favorite wife of several of the wives to Ramses II who was one of the greatest of the pharaohs.
“ The most exquisite of beauties was famous her captivating beauty and splendid waist long hair “
“This woman was exquisite. Her beauty was flawless. Her long, flowing, black hair made each male jealous that she belonged to another, Ramesses the Pharaoh. Nefertari, queen of Egypt, was the loveliest sight to see.”
“Poetry written by Ramesses about his wife is featured on some of the walls of her burial chamber. ("My love is unique—no one can rival her, for she is the most beautiful woman alive. Just by passing, she has stolen away my heart.")”
“Among Nefertari’s most famous titles is t3w nbw (lady of all lands), nbt im3t (lady of charm)...”
“Ramesses referred to his beloved wife as "the one for whom the sun shines."
Nefertari was also often referred to as Nefertari Merit-en-Mut, meaning "the Lovely One, Beloved of Mut."”
