It all started with a team dedicated to studying, protecting, and celebrating the wonders of nature. Based in modern-day Israel, the Dead Sea region is rich in resources; scientists sought greater understanding of how minerals and botanicals could benefit the skin, giving rise to AHAVA in 1988.
AHAVA scientists strive to impact the environment minimally as we create our formulas. The pioneering water return process at the AHAVA manufacturing facility reflects our eco-consciousness by using local flora to filter waste and restore clean water to our desert home. It’s a further expression of our belief in a balance between nature and science.
