Our philosophy is simple... why would we apply chemicals to our skin that we wouldn’t feel right about them?
There’s this idea that man-made ingredients are more powerful. But when my child, Sarit, was suffering from atopic dermatitis, I saw first hand that it’s just not true.
I’d been a biotech engineer and senior formulator in the global pharmaceutical and dermatological industry. From the lab, I knew that any active pharmaceutical ingredient would have side effects. That worried me.
And yet, the natural products I’d tried weren’t effective. Nothing I could purchase soothed her hypersensitive skin.
That’s when I stopped thinking only as a mother, and started thinking as a bioengineer. When I tried my own complex of natural ingredients, I saw an immediate effect The redness and swelling faded away. As a professional, what I saw took me by surprise.
In Israel, where I live, we have some of the best biotech in the world. But nature is still ahead of our scientific knowledge. Plants and minerals contain sophisticated compounds that we just can’t yet reproduce.
From that first success, I knew that I could use my R&D knowledge to make better natural skincare - to make products that harness the power of natural ingredients with high-impact effects. It started with my very first custom cream… and the rest is history.
The Story Behind Malka Cosmetics
When I saw my first formula work on Sarit’s dermatitis, I knew I couldn’t stop there. I wanted to create products I’d feel confident using to protect my skin from aging. But there were no chemical-free products on the market that showed visible results after just one application
With most natural skincare, women can’t see the effects, and so they turn back to pharmaceutical-made skincare. The truth is that despite big promises, most chemical ingredients are no more effective than a placebo.
Many people are unaware of the natural bioactives that can transform skin, without the harm of chemical ingredients used in standard cosmetics. Plants manufacture these phytochemicals for protection from the sun, to renew cells and delay aging. When we extract these sophisticated compounds - including polyphenols and other active antioxidants - we can use them in skincare with powerful results.
I left my job as a biotechnology engineer to create an ideal natural skincare line. Everything I know from 14 years in product development, I’m applying to botanical and mineral ingredients.
