I was delighted to read the article ``Israeli Cosmetics Firm Puts New Face on Dead Sea Mud,'' Aug. 17. Three friends and I discovered these products at Ein Gedi while on a trip to Israel. There has been so much demand for them in our area that a distributorship has been started. A firm in New Jersey is handling the products for the United States. I have long been an admirer of Israel and its people and was so happy to know that AHAVA products will be available products will be available outside of Israel. Phyllis L. Daniel, Denver
