The History of the Firm
Barbalbero Aromatario is an artisan laboratory that produces natural
cosmetics. It began as a company producing natural products for
personal hygiene. These products are elaborated and prepared with
total respect for the environment. The name of the company refers to
Barbalbero, the oldest tree in the forest in the “Lord of the Rings”
trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien. This tree provided restorative lymph for
the Hobbit. “Aromatario” refers to the descriptions that were used
to identify herbs, plants and essences in the first University of
Bologna in Italy (Alma Mater Studiorum), and the Aromatario is also
mentioned on the ancient stone that was found on Mount Donato.
So, we like to think that ancestors watch over this production of
ancient science mixed with modern formulas - ancestors that look
remarkably like the present owners of the laboratory!
