First Bedouin cosmetics label in the world.​​

In the Bedouin town of Tel Sheva, located in the Negev desert near the Israeli city of Be'er Sheva, Maryan Abu Rakayek has set up a natural cosmetics company.

Using methods learned from her grandmother, and passed down in the Bedouin community from generation to generation, Maryan transforms traditional herbs and other natural ingredients into cosmetics, soaps and other treatments. "Desert Daughter" is a growing company, and the first Bedouin cosmetics label in the world.​
