The GRATiAE Story

Organic Beauty by Nature

In the 2nd century, the Roman Emperor Hadrian discovered a hidden natural thermal spring in the mountainous area by the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel. That mineral-rich thermal spring with water erupting at 125 degrees soon became a popular attraction in the entire Roman Empire and the natural spa of choice of the Roman royalty.
Thanks to the hot spring’s therapeutic, curative and rejuventaing properties, the Roman Emperor named it Gratiae – The Three Graces – after the goddess of charm, beauty and youth in the Roman mythology.
The natural thermal spring Gratiae has outlasted the Roman empire and even in the 21st century it is till a major attraction for visitors from all over the world who wish to bathe in it’s revitalizing water and regain their youth and beauty.

GRATiAE – Organic Beauty By Nature – is a skin care line with the sole purpose of anti-aging. It successfully combines GRATiAE’s thermal spring water with it’s exclusive minrals, flora native to the Sea of Galilee area and it’s organic plants.

GRATiAE delivers results of unparalleled luxury.

The GRATiAE Organic Philosophy

Organic Beauty by Nature

Why go organic? Because we believe it is better for you. Our skin is the body’s largest organ. It is a living, breathing, protective covering. Over half of what we apply to our skin is absorbed.
Many of today’s cosmetic and beauty products are made up of various mixtures of synthetically produced chemicals and these chemicals vary in their ability to penetrate the skin. Some are absorbed in small amounts while some easily reach the blood vessels below the skin and are transported around the body.
Many chemicals found in cosmetics do not cause obvious immediate signs of toxicity and might slowly damage us through repeated use on our skin and we have grave concerns over the long term effects this may have on our bodies.
We don’t think that our products need to contain lots of synthetic chemicals to be effective. Plants are nature’s natural healers.

We believe you should love your skin so we constantly seek out unique organic and natural ingredients from all over the world and we bring products bursting with effectiveness to enhance your natural beauty.
GRATiAE – Organic beauty by nature – does not contain any artificial colours or fragrances.
We steer away from Dioxins, Petrochemicals, Mineral oils, Imidazolydinyl Urea, Petrolatum, Hexane, Phthalates,  Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Aluminium and animal derived ingredients.
