The Italian Ambassador Hosts the Israeli Launch of the new line of Dr. Kleein Cosmetics
Ambassador of Italy to Israel H.E. Gianluigi de Benedetti and his wife Sabina hosted a cocktail party at their residence on Saturday, March 30, 2019, to mark the launch of Dr. Kleein Cosmetics, a new line of exclusive skin care products manufactured in Italy. Formulated by renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Dov Klein, Perfection Serum and Perfection Cream are made from two rare -- and expensive -- natural ingredients: white truffle (Tuber Magnatum) and saffron (Crocus Sativus).
According to Dr. Klein, the white truffle from Alba, Italy, is particularly rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that nourish and rejuvenate the skin. Moreover, the truffle’s synergy with saffron yields powerful anti-aging properties, resulting in improved skin tone, youthful elasticity and robust cell renewal.
Dr. Kleein Cosmetics will be available in Israel from select cosmeticians trained in Dr. Klein’s methods. Perfection Serum will cost NIS 439, while the price of Perfection Cream will be NIS 409.
The benefits of Dr. Kleein Cosmetics were outlined at the cocktail party in remarks by Dr. Nunzio Prestigiacomo, Director of Dr. Kleein Cosmetics in Italy.
A number of other distinguished guests also flew in especially from Italy for the launch, including Carlotta Maggiorana, Miss Italy (2018), and three leaders of the Italian pharmaceutical industry: Dr. Sergio Serraino, Dr. Maria Vittoria Di Lauro, Monica Chinaglia and Dr Raffaella Roventa.
Among the Israeli dignitaries attending the launch were Ambassador and Mrs. Oded Ben Hur, former Israeli ambassador to the Vatican; Yoav Horowitz, chief of the Prime Minister’s office; Ambassador Amos Radian; Dr. Sigal Tal, head of Assaf Harofeh’s radiology department; radio stations owner David Ben Bassat and Mrs. Ben Bassat; artist Nansy Brandes; and Attorneys Eitan Esrachi and Yab Gialgiuli.
The food served at the cocktail party was prepared by acclaimed Italian chef Emanuela Panke , who flew in to Israel especially for this event. In keeping with the theme of the evening, Panke whipped up an assortment of hors-d’oeuvres and white pizzas containing white truffle and saffron as ingredients, followed by a main course of risotto alla milanesa and an extraordinary dessert -- Sicilian cannoli.
