If you have made it to our blog then you already must know that our passion is helping as many Canadians as possible unlock the most vibrant, healthy versions of themselves through high quality, nutrient-dense foods. At Raw Elements, our mission is to help you conveniently discover and incorporate wellness-supporting whole foods into your daily life. We truly believe in the old saying, “You are what you eat.”
But why stop there?
If you have made the decision to eat conscientiously and fuel up with unprocessed foods, it is safe to assume that you’re aware of how certain things serve you and your body, while others do not positively support your health and wellness in the same ways. What you put inside your body matters tremendously – without a doubt – so why not apply that same logic to what you put on the outside of your body?
We recently announced that we added Lavido’s line up of raw and organic plant-based skincare products to our website and we could not be more excited to partner with a brand who, like us, prioritizes and values the natural over the synthetic. So far, the response from our customers and friends on social media has been incredible! Given the quality and care put into creating these products – and the clinically proven results they offer – we are not surprised by this warm reception.
If you’ve been searching for effective skincare products that don’t use ingredients that you can’t pronounce, read on to learn what makes Lavido so special.
Lavido is an Israeli-based cult beauty brand that was founded in 2003 by herbalist Ido Magal.
This line up of natural face and body care products is formulated with raw and organic plant-based ingredients, including certified organic essential oils. Inspired by nature, Lavido is committed to progressive technologies, innovation, and research. This is exemplified by their use of ingredients such as plant-based hyaluronic acid.⠀
Lavido products feature essential oils that 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. ⠀
Lavido is 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.⠀

Example Routine Using Lavido
Here’s a daily skincare routine using Lavido that is perfect for these chillier winter months when the weather has a tendency to dry out our skin, making it look and feel dull.
Cleanse. During winter, it’s important to use a cleanser that is effective but gentle enough that it won’t cause or exacerbate drying. Lavido’s Hydrating Facial Cleanser is a great option because of its organic ingredient profile and inclusion of nourishing essential oil. No hidden synthetic fragrance, dyes, or ingredients that will dry out your skin.
Exfoliate. Exfoliation is crucial for maintaining an even texture and appearance – without it, dry skin will stay looking and feeling dry. Lavido’s 2-in-1 Purifying Facial Mask & Exfoliator helps refresh the skin with pomegranate seed, and macadamia and lemon oils. Simply massage it into skin in circular motions and rinse off. Note: Depending on your skin, you may not need to exfoliate every day.⠀
Spot treat/use serums. This step is optional, but if you’re experiencing extreme dryness or enjoy using serums, Lavido’s Replenishing Facial Serum is a great choice. Its highly concentrated formula works to aid moisture restoration and retention. Clinical trials showed that 97% of subjects experienced a significant increase in skin firmness, smoothness and decreased wrinkle depth.⠀
Moisturize. Even if you have combination or oily skin, it’s important to moisturize daily – especially when the temps turn frigid! Lavido’s Ultra Daily Facial Moisture Cream is rich in Omega 6 acid, vitamins and organic evening primrose oil. This clinically proven formula feels both rich yet lightweight, so your skin will feel hydrated and replenished.⠀
Apply sunscreen. Optional but HIGHLY recommended! Lavido does not offer a sunscreen at this time but protecting your skin from the sun’s powerful rays is important to good skin health.
