Behind the Brand - Ortigia
Ortigia Ortigia Ortigia
Ortigia is a small Italian soap company founded in 2006. Inspired by the cultural wealth and natural beauty of Sicily – the Ortigia Sicilian bath and body range uses plants indigenous to the area, to create evocative and innovative fragrances. Made from natural and traditional ingredients such as Olive, Palm Oil, Almond, Blood Orange and Lime, Ortigia uses traditional products with modern ethics and integrity.

The Ortigia range is made by a number of small family companies who pride themselves on the quality of their products. Both the scents and products are formulated by Ortigia, while the packaging is designed by owner Sue Townsend, which is highly decorative, and draws on exotic Sicilian images and colours.
Ortigia

The name Ortigia was given by the Greeks to the island south of the city of Syracuse, the greatest city in the Greek Empire. Situated on the eastern coast of the island, Ortigia is located in the area of Sicily known as ‘La Sicilia Orientale.’

Because of its proximity to Africa, this region of Sicily has an almost tropical climate. The only area where blood oranges are grown and cactus, eucalyptus, lemon and grapefruit trees are cultivated; almonds, pistachios, saffron, and olives thrive in the rich volcanic soil.


Black lava can also be found everywhere. In the soil and rocks and in building material of the majority of the buildings in Catania (even the cement of the houses is black). An ever present reminder of Mount Etna – Europe’s highest active volcano, the area is both beautiful and sinister – the realm of the God Vulcan and home to the Cyclops.
