TERRA INKA - THE AYPA DIFFERENCE
Aypa, meaning Earth in indigenous Quechua language, stands for the respect and the values the Andean Incan culture hold towards Nature. For the Andean people, the Earth is considered their Mother: sacred and their source of life. She presides over planting and harvesting, nurturing and teaching them how to grow. In return, they honour by caring and protecting her. In harmony with the Earth, the Incas created an organic and ecological farming system by respecting seasonality, and holding sacred harvesting ceremonies in cadence with Nature´s rhythms.
As a result, and thanks to this respect for Nature since ancient Incan times, the land in Peru has been blessed with one of the richest biodiversity on the planet. Extremely diverse climatic zones in the region have harbored the organic growth of emblematic plants and exotic botanical species that possess extraordinary healthy properties, going from the Pacific coast through the high Andes Mountains and reaching the lush Amazon rainforest.
At Aypa, we are proud to be part of the heritage of this land and we want to share its richness by developing natural cosmetics formulated with these native precious organic ingredients whilst maintaining the utmost respect for the environment.
