Água Mole: hand-crafted cosmetics with unique essences
With the slogan “soft water, fragrances that embrace us”, this company based in Cabeço de Vide, Fronteira, has in Ana Paula Leitão its mentor. The Água Mole cosmetics are distinguished by the fact that they are based on carefully selected flower and vegetable essences.
This small family business creates and develops personal aromatic products and spaces from artisan processes, privileging the quality and guaranteeing the hydration of the skin.
In the year in which Acredita Portugal contest was considered the biggest contest of entrepreneurship in the world by the number of participations (more than 14 thousand), Água Mole, a project still in its embryonic phase, was finalist of the same. This was the biggest leverage for the company, which in the space of six months has extended its offer to a wide variety of different products, but which maintains standards of quality and efficiency.
Lavender, fig, cloves, lemon and geranium, rose and jasmine, orange and cinnamon and the exclusive Véritas are the aromas created by Água Mole for each of the products marketed, namely handmade soaps of virgin olive oil, which cost five euros, solid perfume (eight euros), air fresheners (15 euros), colonies (10 euros) and moisturizing creams (nine euros). Véritas is the exclusive star fragrance of the brand, corresponding to a mixture of floral and vegetable essences created and always used by the family of Ana Paula Leitão. The product design, which is marked by tradition and irreverence, is in charge of Daniela Gomes.
In addition to claiming 100 percent Portuguese and artisanal, Água Mole also ensures that it does not test on animals. The range of cosmetics of this brand is available on its official website. Currently, Água Mole both creates products of its own brand and develops unique aromas for spaces that reflect its DNA: delicacy, sobriety and personality.
