Philosophy

The Starting Strenght

The Ahura Laboratory was created from the experience of three women united by their consideration in the antroposophycal field and in the professional research in the areas of bio-dynamic agriculture, phytotherapy and natural cosmetics. The Laboratory started its activity producing phytotherapic supplements extracted with the spagiric method. This phase was carried out by initiating a series of fruitful collaborations with natural medicine professionals – doctors, physiotherapists and wellbeing operators – people distinguished by an open attitude and the ability to harmonize the experience of the traditional European herbal medicine and homeopathy with the latest developments in the natural research field. The following phase, which led to the creation of professional cosmetic product lines of the highest quality, is realized as a coherent development of the phytotherapic and spagiric production, which gave rise to one of the strength points of the new productive bearing. Underpinning this transition there was in fact the confidence of obtaining the same quality reached in the internal use products also for cosmetics and skin care.

Cooperation and fair trade

The Ahura Laboratory sources raw materials originating from the fair and socially responsible trade circuit, a choice deriving from the determination of guaranteeing to producers and their employees a fair and predetermined price, whilst ensuring the protection of the area of provenance and production.
To this regard a fruitful collaboration between the Ahura Laboratory and the Equomercato Cooperative has been active for the last few years, which allowed launching production initiatives with African social cooperatives run by women in the sphere of solidarity economy.

Smaragdine Tablet

This true without error, certain & most true.
That which is below is like that which is above & that which is above is like that which is below to do the miracles of one only thing And as all things have been & arose from one by the mediation of one: so all things have their birth from this one thing by adaptation.
The Sun is its father, the moon its mother, the wind hath carried it in its belly, the earth is its nurse.
The father of all perfection in the whole world is here.
Its force or power is entire if it be converted into earth.
Separate thou the earth from the fire, the subtle from the gross sweetly with great industry.
It ascends from the earth to the heaven & again it descends to the earth & receives the force of things superior & inferior.
By this means you shall have the glory of the whole world & thereby all obscurity shall fly from you.
Its force is above all force. For it vanquishes every subtle thing & penetrates every solid thing.
So was the world created.
From this are & do come admirable adaptations whereof the means (or process) is here in this. Hence I am called Hermes Trismegist, having the three parts of the philosophy of the whole world
That which I have said of the operation of the Sun is accomplished & ended.

The logo

The Ahura logo is inspired by the Mercury seal devised by Rudolf Steiner for the capitals of the grand round chamber of the first Goetheanum of Dornach.
The large dome of the building was supported by seven pairs of columns. Each of these represented in a symbolic and artistic form one of the shaping powers of terrestrial evolution and was related with one of the planets of the solar system. The sculptural language of the columns synthesized the metamorphosis of the Earth starting from the spiritual world, until its current physical state.
