At Borgo Santo Pietro we’re so passionate about wellness that we built a custom-made lab to develop our own line of entirely natural skincare, Seed to Skin, where our modern, scientific approach is firmly rooted in nature and a curative tradition dating back beyond 1129.
Situated a stone’s throw from the Borgo farm, where we draw key ingredients such as fresh sheep’s milk and raw honey, our state-of-the-art laboratory is the creative cauldron where owner and creative director Jeanette Thottrup (who is also a naturalist) and pharmacist and cosmetologist Anna Buonocore unite their two different systems of knowledge, producing a range of skincare that takes a 360-degree approach to beauty and wellness.
Available to guests as our in-house amenity set, our body range contains sheep’s milk from our very own Borgo flock, an ingredient that has been used since ancient times for its rich and skin-nourishing content of butterfat, vitamins and minerals, and gently exfoliating lactic acid that leaves skin soft and radiant. Nature’s perennial cure-all, raw honey has likewise been used for millennia for its intensely moisturising, soothing and healing properties, gathered from our Borgo bees who rove far and wide over our 300-acre organically cultivated estate.
We also harness the natural healing properties of thermal water and cultivate organic herbs for the extraction of essential oils that we blend into various healing formulas to uplift, ground and relax the mind and body.
