ADVA is a story about people who love nature. Nature that allows people to reveal the natural treasure encapsulated in themselves.
ADVA produces natural cosmetics extracted from the natural treasures of our land. Natural soaps from Dead Sea mud and grooming products for the face and body. Every product is enriched with natural medicinal herbs that provide effective curing capabilities and fine essential oils that provide it with natural scents and effective cures for the body and soul.
Our body deserves the best! That’s why we don’t compromise on the quality of the raw materials we use, and use a cold-process manufacturing method to ensure we don’t lose the essential value and vitamins nature provides us with generosity and love.
Our factory is unique not only because of the unique products we create, but because of the unique, heartwarming story that stands behind its establishment. The factory was established with a goal to provide employment opportunities for people with special needs and to be an employment home filled with love, inclusion, and respect.
The story of ADVA (formerly Sabonato) started when Shlomo worked as an olive oil manufacturer at “Meshek Achiya.” While working there, Shlomo was exposed to the curing methods of olive oil and learned its unique qualities.
Love for the land, ground, and manual labor brought Shlomo to plant a high quality olive vineyard in the Benjamin Mountains. With a love for cooking, it was only a matter of time until the oil started to float on the face of the water and became incorporated into unique recipes….
After the olives were harvested and were pressed into oil, Shlomo used his love for olive oil and cooking to create a natural and healthy soap. He poured the oil into a pot and started to experiment with different compositions and combinations of oils and plants. Here, Shlomo started his journey into the world of natural soaps. For days and nights Shlomo worked diligently studying the soap-making craft. He prepared concoctions, infused plants, and mixed oils in an effort to develop unique recipes. Then, Shlomo started to manufacture high quality soaps, enriched with mud and salt from the Dead Sea. His relatives contributed to the work and couldn’t remain indifferent before the gentle texture, wonderful scents, and the influence of the soaps on the body and soul.
The Keshet family story has an older story to share, long before Shlomo was introduced to olive oil. Around 20 years ago, Naomi and Shlomo Keshet gave birth to their fourth son and discovered that they were rewarded with a beloved son diagnosed with Down syndrome. The parents understood that at this moment they received a lifelong mission, and decided to jump into it with all of their strength to help their sweet child, Elnatan, utilize his abilities just like they do with their medicinal herbs.
Elnatan works in the family factory. He and his friends make up half of the factory workers and earn a happy living through love and satisfaction. They wrap the soaps with love, just like they were wrapped from the moment they were born—each one with its unique qualities, each one with its fragrance
Not all the workers wanted/could have been photographed for different reasons, but they get to the factory every day and are part of our wonderful and unique team.
