$12 for $24 Worth of Natural Bath, Body, and Facial Products
Body products include soaps handmade in Israel, an exfoliating body scrub made with Dead Sea minerals ($30 for 360 g), shower gel in scents such as lemon ginger and red grapefruit ($22 for 500 mL), flavoured lip balm ($10 for 10 mL), and hand cream made with grape-seed oil ($12 for 50 mL). The eco-friendly company awards a $1 credit to customers who return empty Lavan jars to the store for recycling.
Lavan is open from 11 a.m.–7 p.m.
Lavan's nature alchemists collect herbs and fruit, vegetable, and flower extracts sourced from the Israeli countryside to blend into their all-natural bath and body products, which have been lauded in SweetLife and Fashion Magazine's blog for producing “silky results in an instant.” Mixed according to ancient recipes, the balms and soaps are hand-packed into recyclable glass containers before staffers arrange them on the shelves of Lavan's luxe downtown store. In the center of the space, a large, round sink sprouting multiple faucets whispers for customers to sample soaps and salt scrubs. Knowledgeable staffers serenely explain the benefits of the exotic ingredients, or direct men and women to salves specifically designed for their skin needs. All of products are hypo-allergenic, paraben-free, and never tested on animals, making them gentle enough to use on babies who take strong ethical stances on the treatment of animals.
