Our story

Ivana Zagorec Kolednjak

Our History

Our story begins in Turčin (near Varaždin) in the year 1996, when my mother Đurđica, who is a pharmacy technician, presented her first natural products for health and beauty to the market. Growing up surrounded by various scents of carefully selected herbs, I fell in love with pharmacognosy at a very early age. My mother passed her passion for studying natural herbs and essences onto me, as well as her commitment to creating formulas. With a masters degree in pharmacy and by using know-how, innovation and creative contribution, I continued with our creative work.

Our Philosophy

The name BIOVITALIS® is a synergy between the two fundamental values - nature (BIO) and life (VITALIS). It is a reflection of both our identity and our genuine philosophy. We promote living in harmony with nature, because as a part of it, we have to pay attention to the nature's processes and we must avoid doing anything that could throw nature out of ballance. By respecting nature and by cooperating with it, we can achieve a balanced way of life.

Treat the Earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors we borrowed it from our children. Sitting Bull, Chief of the Sioux Indian Tribe.

Our Mission

The doctor treats, nature heals. Latin: Medicus curat, natura sanat.
