Our Story

Founder’s Story

If you’re reading this, you probably have a skin problem. And everything you’ve tried hasn’t worked.

I know how you feel, because I’ve been there. And I’ve spent my life looking for a better way. My journey took me from Israel to California to Chengdu, where I studied with masters of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).

They taught me how botanicals, with their complex interplay of ingredients, can heal us by bringing our bodies back into balance.

And finally, my journey took me back to modern Western science, to verify in the lab and in clinical trials what traditional Chinese medicine had taught me.

The result is Kamedis, a unique collection of skin treatment products for eczema & dry skin, acne and dandruff that bring together East and West, tradition and innovation, safety and effectiveness.

Our journey isn’t over. At Kamedis, we continue to support the farmers and communities where our botanicals are grown and harvested. We continue to work with, and learn from, practitioners of alternative medicine as well as dermatologists and researchers. And we remain committed to helping as many skin sufferers as possible get the benefits of what we’ve learned.

As a small business, we apply all of our talent toward our products and our energy toward our consumers. Please connect and share your journey to better skin health with us. We take pride in getting to know our customers and hearing their stories.

Why the name Kamedis?

We often get asked how to pronounce Kamedis (Kuh meh dis) and what it means. As a skincare line that blends traditional Chinese Medicine’s proven botanicals with efficacious Western ingredients, it’s only natural that our name combines elements of both the East and West.

开 Kai, first tone - to open, to start, it can also be used to convey innovation. The symbol strokes also look like a gate, reflecting and emphasizing this opening, the ability to enter, to cross. The gate is powerful as a gate often protects what lies beyond.

Medis represents the medicinal nature of the products; they are designed to treat and heal skin conditions. It also reflects the scientific background of the brand, reflecting our commitment to research.

Together, Kamedis means “innovative medicine”.
