Hello! We are Ana & Krsto Matulić.
Isolated life and untouched nature on Pašman island is a source of infinite creativity for our family. We base the quality of our handmade products on Pašman's tradition and locally grown and sourced organic ingredients.
Almost for a decade now, Matulić family, the owners of the organic cosmetics & food brand OPG Matulić is living and loving isolated island life in beautiful, untouched nature of Pašman island. They first started producing handmade soaps and now grew their brand to become awarded and recognized per their product quality and immaculate customer service all around Croatia but also in countries of European Union. They became a symbol of quality founded on island’s rich history and tradition.
OPG Matulić’s creativity and innovation have made their cosmetic and food products absolute must have’s. Ana who is charge of producing natural cosmetic products is following slow cosmetic movement. Her cosmetic products: soaps, shampoos, face creams etc. are hand-made out of olive oil and other locally grown ingredients in small quantities. The quality of Ana’s products was confirmed with her winning more then 20 island origin quality certificates.
"Untouched nature of Pašman island is the main source of our creativity and inspiration, our main motivation is our customer's need for knowing what is in the products they are using and how it effects their health. We come up with names for our products together usually during our Fall and Winter travels."
