Israel is hot and dry in Summer. To take care of their skins, local people have been seeking natural materials to help their skins resist the harm from the dry weather for thousands of years, and royal families welcome their skincare treatments from Eurasian Region, the Middle East. Sal-Vento is one of them, which can provide excellent treatment for skins. Sal-Vento products have always been the first pick for royal families as gifts to send to each other. Sal-Vento has always persisted in small container production mode by hand to guarantee the quality of its products. Especially, its soaps are handmade even nowadays. Another skincare brand, Intensive Spa, will also be shown to the public. Materials of Intensive Spa products are the combination of extracts from mineral salt mud of the Dead Sea, plants, and multiple vitamins, which will provide thorough nutrition and moisture to skins.
