Argital was established in Milan in 1979 as a result of the fateful meeting of Giuseppe Ferraro, a young biologist bursting with new ideas, Graziella, his loving companion, and the bright and cheerful Pietro Bianchi, founder of Kl, the top firm in the distribution of organic products.  They all had one firm belief in common – their belief in the unique therapeutic properties of clay as an essential ingredient in the creation of a range of avant-garde cosmetic products.

Their choice of clay was that found in a deep pit in the southern coast of Sicily.

From there, with his deep understanding of Anthroposohy, which considers man as an harmonious being, consisting of body, soul and spirit, arose the idea of Argital.
