Sabon Michal, Tsfat
Founded in 2013 by husband-and-wife team, Noam & Michal Levy, Sabon Michal is an all-natural cosmetics company. After working as a chef in Manhattan, Michal returned to Israel to be closer to family & to live a more spiritual lifestyle. She studied Agriculture, Food & Environment at the Hebrew University in Rehovot & applies these principles to her brand, using organic herbs, plants & flowers purchased from small growers in Israel. Sabon Michal utilises a handmade, slow, cold manufacturing process so as not to comprise the health properties through exposure to heat & chemicals. A “green” company, all materials are clean and do not pollute water or harm the skin. The products are wrapped in recycled paper made from orange peels. The Levy’s live in Tsfat and their factory is located in Dalton, one of Israel’s 6 industrial parks built by billionaire philanthropist, Stef Wertheimer, whose aim was to create jobs in the periphery.
