Hi there!

New Sunscreen Products by Dr. Melumad

'Dr. Melumad' is an Israeli company specializing in unique plant-based skin products. The company was founded in 1979 by a third-generation pharmacist and a world-renowned researcher with over 50 years of experience in developing dermo-cosmetic formulations. The company is located in Beer Tuvia and has over 1200 products.

Now, Dr. Melumad's research and development labs have developed an advanced series of sun protection emulsions using PROTECT UV technology that combine ingredients for optimal protection against the strong sun radiation in Israel (both UVA and UVB), along with active natural ingredients that treat the skin and prevent signs of premature aging.

The protection against environmental and climate damage is achieved through a powerful anti-oxidant complex that helps neutralize free radicals preventing damage from air pollution, radiation, heat and dryness. The complex is combined with moisturizers and Vitamin E that aid in preventing dryness and restoring skin appearance.

The series includes 4 products that are available now at special introductory prices:

  • Sunscreen SPF25 in an economical family packaging, 250 mL (Summer Sale: 39.90 NIS).

  • Sunscreen SPF25 TOGO 60 mL | A small bottle to carry with you. (Summer Sale: 11.90 NIS)

  • After Sun skincare lotion in an economical family packaging, 250 mL (Summer Sale: 18.90 NIS).

  • After Sun TOGO skincare lotion, 60 mL | A small bottle to carry with you. (Summer Sale: 9.90 NIS)

The series is available at private pharmacies, perfumery, nature stores and the official Dr. Melumad website.

New Cosmetic Products by 'Lavender'

'Lavender' is an Israeli company located in Pardes Hanna-Karkur founded by a Chemical Engineer and a holistic therapist. As its name suggests it specializes in the manufacturing of cosmetic products based on 100% natural ingredients.

In light of the pending summer it is launching two sun protection preparations that correspond well with the brand values. Both products contain the only two mineral filters that the FDA has considered generally recognized as safe and effective for use in sunscreens, titanium oxide and zinc oxide. Neither contain SLS, petrolatum derivatives, preservatives or synthetic scents.

  • Mineral Natural Anti-Aging Sunscreen SPF30, 30 mL (Price: 229 NIS). The product is based on red kelp and in addition to the mineral filters provides astaxanthin, an anti-inflammatory agent extracted from the algae whose antioxidant activity helps prevent skin aging leaving it elastic and soft. The cream provides protection at a much higher UVA radiation level than the standard requirements.

  • Mineral Tevasun Sunscreen Cream SPF50, 50mL (Price: 90 NIS). The product is a natural sunscreen free of chemicals, concentrated 5 times more than the corresponding products on the market that protects from UVA and UVB and is suitable for infants from the age of six months and up. The cream creates an almost completely transparent layer and is not visible on the skin of the body.

The "Lavender" products are fresh, meaning that they are manufactured in small quantities and are valid for 18 months from the date of manufacture. It is "fresh cosmetics" just like fresh and high quality food.

The "Lavender" products can be obtained at the "Lavender" stores at the Karkur factory shop, Sarona Center Tel-Aviv, Kfar Saba City Mall and on the official Lavender website.
