When it comes to shopping in Tel Aviv, Forbes Travel Guide’s editors feel that Israeli-made products are definitely the way to go. Two products in particular worth seeking out are cosmetics derived from the famously mineral-rich Dead Sea to the south of the city, as well as sandals from Naot, which manufactures its famous footwear at a historic kibbutz factory to the north in the lush Galilee region.
For Dead Sea cosmetics, many feel that Minus 417 has set the new standard in spa-grade creams, masks and anti-aging products, while Ahava is another similarly renowned brand offering top-of-the-line skincare lotions and hand creams. Naot, famous for its sandals’ durability and comfort, offers a wide variety of open-toed styles – and since most Tel Aviv locals never wear anything other than sandals, you know you’re getting heavily tested, trusted goods.
