It is 1965, Dr. di Massimo, pharmacist, after managing several pharmacies in various Italian cities, begins to formulate his own products, driven by the need to offer natural, phytocosmetic and phytotherapic products in its pharmacy.
In 1978 he moved with his family in the countryside: through the study, never interrupted, of plants and flowers, he deepened and researched their potential … the formulation transforms into a brand.
He leaves the pharmacy definitively and moves to Florence. Palazzo Vecchio Spezierie is born!
All products are carefully formulated with ingredients of the highest quality and without any chemical components whose cosmetic safety is not guaranteed. Instead, safe preservatives, sequestering agents, antioxidants and surfactants used are derived solely from plants— all ethically sourced. No animal products or testing are ever used.
Dr. Di Massimo created plant based beauty brands i PROFUMI di FIRENZE and la COSMETICA FIORENTINA — renowned for their highly concentrated natural active ingredients and Renaissance traditions of hand crafted excellence.
This Florentine historical inspiration comes from the Experimenti manuscript of Caterina Sforza De Medici-a Renaissance codex of cosmetic arts containing Caterina’s beauty and fragrance secrets. Her encyclopedic knowledge of natural raw materials with generous use of base notes are the indispensable factors for transmitting the absolute originality and enduring power of the fragrances.
In 2015 Francesca Di Massimo, the doctor’s only daughter, joins the company. Graduated in herbal sciences and with long managerial experience at an international level, at first she deals with optimizing the company in terms of organization, marketing and management control, then directs her training to deepen the formulation of fragrances with the study of raw materials and formulation laboratories at Cinquieme Sense in Paris; she then dedicated herself to the study of phytoterapy with a university master’s degree in Applied Phytoterapy in Rome.
Passion has become a project, the project inevitably turns into a mission: beauty, well-being, health, a paradigm expressed through products; the purpose is to address the need for people to seek physical and mental balance throughout the course of life.
The starting point is absolute and universal: Nature.
La Cosmetica Fiorentina is an innovative natural cosmetic line that uses highly concentrated plant-based and natural active ingredients whose effectiveness is scientifically proven.
