Extraordinarily innovative products from a company that believes in performance, safety and the protection of the environment.
Astra was founded in 1988 in Todi, as an idea of the pharmacist Giuliano Settimi. It is thanks to the work of his son Simone Settimi, current General Manager, and his wife Lucia Menghella, CEO, that the company continues to grow and develop, combining creativity and an Italian passion for beauty. Astra has always integrated sustainability into its business strategy, with the intention of implement further commitments in the area of CSR. All this thanks to a conscious company policy, which pursue operational and financial objectives alongside a clear vision on environmental, social and governance issues.
All the cosmetics are conceived, studied and designed in the heart of Umbria, assisted by the expertise of the best Italian and European suppliers, in order to enforce a made in Italy open concept, in full respect of a business model that considers local and global technologies and processes.
Astra offers a wide range of high performing beauty tools, where experience and passion follow the dynamism of current trends. Safety for consumers is the brand’s priority, which is why Astra has chosen not to use allergens, parabens, not to test on animals, and to treat heavy metals according to the minimum values recommended. In addition, the quality of the products is ensured by technical controls for safety and clinical efficacy, in order to constantly ensure a high standard of excellence.
The company is determined to cope with its environmental impact, in accordance with the latest trends in sustainability. Astra intends to reduce waste as much as possible, concerning the entire supply chain from the creation stage to the advertising of the products. The main commitment is to eliminate secondary packaging, in order to reduce paper and cardboard waste and shorten the production chain.
