The story

This fantastic career was called to life by the lack of cosmetics in the 1950s and the professional ambition of Aunt Ilcsi. Her cosmetics made of various herbs were developed step-by-step and were sought by more and more beauticians because of their effects.

By the 1980s there was a great demand for her products and Aunt Ilcsi had the opportunity to start the family business with her son under the name Ilcsi Beautifying Herbs Ltd in 1984.

In 1988 as a result of Aunt Ilcsi's versatile experience the first electro-cosmetic device, Mini Face Lifting was created. Since that Ilcsi Beautifying Herbs has developed several different devices that enhance the effects of treatments and help beauticians achieve great results.

Aunt Ilcsi has always been committed to training the next generation of beauticians. In 1994 professional trainings were first held in the studio of Ilcsi Beautifying Herbs. Since then hundreds of professionals have been trained in Hungary and all over the world, including the USA, Australia and Japan.

Aunt Ilcsi

Mrs Ilona Molnar, lovingly known as Aunt Ilcsi is the founder of Ilcsi Beautifying Herbs. Aunt Ilcsi's view on skincare and how nature can help us to have beautiful skin was well ahead of its time. In the 1970s and 80s, when she was already promoting natural solutions, the industry was still all about synthetic ingredients. Her method of skincare has its roots in her early years. As a child, Ilcsi lived in rural Hungary, where people had a very close relationship with nature. Her village herbalist grandmother taught her how to use plants and herbs, that later helped her starting this unique and inspiring carrier.


At B&O Natural Cosmetics we believe that everyone deserves to have beautiful skin using natural products. The world-wide success of Ilcsi and ilike products and our personal experiences convinced us that this great brand should be available for those who prefer natural cosmetics in the United Kingdom.

llcsi Beautyfing Herbs knows that nature has a solution to every skin problem. These professional organic cosmetics therefore are always made of fresh herbs, fruits, vegetables and spring waters, active ingredients are used instead of extracts. They respect all forms of life, so during the product development they do not conduct any tests on animals and do not use animal by-products. Ilcsi Beautifying Herbs teamed up with WWF in Hungary to promote environment protection.

B&O Natural Cosmetics is proud to represent 'Ilcsi' in the UK as we support and appreciate the values and philosophy of Ilcsi Beautifying Herbs.
