A natural, therapeutic skin and body care line specializing in herbal plant chemistry with clinically proven results.

Originating from the beautiful and lush Galilee valley a remote, untouched region of Israel, a country known for its agriculture and green technologies, Lavido was born in 2003 from a passion for herbal chemistry and a need for natural products that work better than conventional ones.

Plant chemist Ido Magal is the founder and formulator of Lavido. Ido grew up studying herbal and plant chemistry, starting at a very young age in his grandmother’s organic garden. With a deep love of nature and plants, he began farming his land in the heart of the Galilee’s Jezreel Valley in Israel to study and practice herbal medicine. Not long after, his sister asked him to make a therapeutic cream for her baby’s sensitive skin, which soon became a highly coveted product among her friends and family. After quickly selling out of the miracle cream at a local farmer’s market, Lavido - named after Ido and his sister- was born.

The Gardens

With a heritage rooted and inspired by nature, we bring a deep gardening ethic to our formulation process. We grow many of our own ingredients in our Botanical Sanctuary in Israel that is also a renowned Education Center. People from all over the world come to learn more about the healing and aromatic properties of plants and herbs. The ingredients we don’t grow in our garden are ethically and sustainably sourced around the world where they grow abundantly, using less of Earth’s precious resources.

Our Expertise

Plants are the basis of every formula we create. From wild botanicals to therapeutic herbs to revitalizing fruit extracts, we’re an early pioneer of herbal and plant chemistry and our passion and expertise lies in developing therapeutic solutions from the very best of nature, including essential skincare products and our innovative Green Aid collection designed to target specific hypersensitive skin conditions.
