¨We were expecting a building in an industrial area of Siena and a cold-like feeling of a multinational-style operation. But, nope, not at all! Instead as headquarter we have found a super cute little Tuscan village. Biofficina Toscana has renovated a housing complex in the cute town of Rapolano Terme and made it into offices, which reflects perfectly their philosophy. The team is focused, genuine, sincere and extremely passionate about what they do. The beauty of Biofficina is that, even after 10 years operating in Italy and abroad and many international recognitions and awards later, retains the fundaments and principles as if it was the first day.¨

The Story

This is a  family story which started with two young women and developed in a family dimension, with a synergy of ideas, backgrounds and different yet complementary energies.

Starting from scratch: Biofficina Toscana started from scratch (a garage used as a warehouse and some excel spreadsheets instead of an ERP…). They´’ve grown with time, every single step has had and continues to have an important value!

 

Women as leaders

The founders of Biofficina Toscana Eva and Claudia, are two young women. Their first empolyee was a very young woman and the majority of collaborators are women… for creative female cosmetics that nevertheless show no shortage of the more rational male part!
