Ido Magal’s fondest childhood memories are of communing with Nature. From helping his aunt and uncle raise honeybees and horses, to tending his grandmother’s beloved organic garden, Ido has always reveled in the rhythms of Nature.
In his early twenties, Ido finished his studies in herbs and plant chemistry and opted to trade city life for country living to start a farm in the heart of the Galilee’s Jezreel Valley. Shortly thereafter, he made his first product, an all-natural baby cream, and Lavido was born in 2003.
Now, just ten years later, Lavido has grown to dozens of products based on organic oils and butters, an educational Lavido visitor center in Nahalal, hundreds of retail partners, and a chain of signature stores and distributorships around the world.
Lavido’s commitment to progressive technologies through innovation and research is exemplified by our use of ingredients such as plant-based hyaluronic acid, while the extraction methods we use ensure a highly effective product.
Lavido oils are diffused, infused, or cold-pressed using the most natural extraction processes including mechanical extraction, a non-chemical water-based distillation process that separates the vital oils from liquids. Mechanical extraction best retains the active essentials of the plant, nut, or seed being used. It is also a traditional form of distillation going back millennia. Lavido is equally committed to cutting-edge technologies, provided they meet strict natural guidelines, such as CO2 extraction. CO2 extraction is an eco-friendly chemical process that retains the active qualities of the plant and also allows for selective essences to be extracted.
