8 Common Ingredients Found in Israeli Skin Care Products
Walk around Tel Aviv, and you'll quickly realize that Israel is a bustling, fast-paced, savvy country full of creative people. Those on the prowl for beauty loot, specifically, may find themselves instantly enamored by streets lined with boutique spas, tiny skin care stores, fragrance counters, and high-quality, innovative products lining shelf after shelf.
"Israel is small, complex, and challenged," says Joanna Landau of Vibe Israel, a nonprofit that works to change the world's perception of the country. "Despite this, and to a certain degree, perhaps also as a result of this complexity, the culture breeds so much creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship."
Landau explains that Israel is the number one startup country in the world, with more startups per person than anywhere else. You can imagine, then, that there are some exciting and fascinating things happening everywhere, and that certainly extends into the beauty and skin care realm as well. To give you better insight into that innovation, we're focusing on some of the most commonly used ingredients in Israel skin care — such as pomegranate oil, dead sea salt, and calendula — that you might not have even considered using before. All the products included here today are made in Israel as well.
