Mojeh spotlights Kahina Giving Beauty Argan Oil and founder Katharine L’Heureux.
“It’s this same philosophy and outlook that retains the backbone of Katharine L’Heureux’s product range, Kahina Giving Beauty. “When I discovered argan oil on a trip through Morocco in 2007, I knew I had found the superstar ingredient that I was searching for. When I learned how the oil was helping women in need in rural Morocco to earn a living, I decided to build a brand that would make a difference in their lives,” says L’Heureux. From cleansers to night creams, argan oil is an essential component – along with other harvested ingredients. “[It] only grows in the Southwest of Morocco, although there have been efforts to grow it elsewhere. Shea butter grows on the other side of the Sahara in West Africa. Blue tansy, which we use in our Facial Cleanser and Lip & Face Balm is also known as Moroccan chamomile (ours is produced by a women’s cooperative in Morocco). Some ingredients sourced from Morocco, while found elsewhere, such as our Prickly Pear Seed Oil and our Rose Damascena, are superior in quality to varieties grown in other regions.”
