About Desert Daughter

A unique line of cosmetic and medicinal healing products founded by Mariam Abu Rkeek and crafted in the spirit and essential wisdom of Bedouin tradition.

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.
