40 years of experience and 2000 years of knowledge

Hello and welcome to our shop.
We are a father-daughter team, Milan and Anika Plešec, with dedication to science and cosmetics and passion for history, art, nature and tradition. The products we develop are based on ancient wisdom combined with modern cosmetic ingredients. Our production company located in Slovenia has the experience of more than 40 years in the cosmetic field. Up to nowadays we maintain a small-scale production. Within the scope of a galenic laboratory all our products are hand-made and the whole manufacturing process is under professional pharmaceutical supervision. Our ingredients and raw materials are tested and certified to guarantee the safe use of our cosmetics. We self-collect plants such as yarrow (Achilea milenfolium), horsetail (Equisetum arvense), sage (Salvia officinalis), St Jonhn’s wort (Hypericum perforatum), immortal (Helichrysmus italicum) and others, as well as pine and spruce resins from nature in order to captivate the wild energy of our pristine forests and mountains and transform it to healing and beautifying properties of our cosmetics. In parallel to our production company we run a Museum of Pharmacy and Alchemy which was founded in June 2019 in the medieval village Radovljica, situated in the heart of the Slovenian Alps. The 200 m2 museum features more than 2000 items, which have been collected over 40 years by pharmacist Milan Plešec.

    As an anthropologist and technician in use of medical plants I traveled around the world researching ethnobotany and traditional medicine. I also studied medicine, aerial dance and yoga. In MiobaOldPharmacy I can explore the possibilities of combining ancient knowledge and modern recipes to bring safe and creative products to you.
