I have used argan oil products on my hair for a few years now and seen how it benefited greatly. One thing I was not sure of was how ethically sourced my argan oil was. This was until I discovered Kahina Giving Beauty (www.givingbeauty.com). This range of natural beauty products have argan oil at the heart of them and was launched by Katharine Phillips L’Heureux following a trip to Morocco.
This range uses pure argan oil that is hand extracted by the Berber women in Morocco. The organic ingredients are ethically sourced and 25% of Kahina’s profits go back to the co-operatives they work with. A simply yet beautifully designed product also displays the signatures and marks of the Berber women on it.
In my Travel Basics pack contained 30ml bottles of the following products
- Argan Oil – 100% organic and Ecocert certified
- Facial Cleanser – Ecocert organic and natural
- Facial Lotion – 100% natural and 95% of botanical ingredients are organic
I like this beauty regime as it is simple, effective and also can be changed depending on skin’s requirements. I started off with the Kahina Facial Cleanser which I applied to my dampened skin. It is quite easy to use in the shower as well. After massaging it in for a little bit I removed it with a cloth. I found this worked well. The blend of argan oil, papaya extracts and aloe vera leaf juice is a great combination. Papaya is well know for it’s exfoliating qualities, leaving my skin brighter but without stripping the skin of its natural oils.
The Kahina Argan Oil is 100% organic and is a true multi-tasker. The box recommends it being tried on the face, the body, in the bath, on the hair and also on your hands as a cuticle treatment. I decided to try all of them. Great product. I used it on my face after the cleanser and also tried it as a extra boost to the Facial Lotion. This wonder product is certainly a way to help cut down the amount of products you take away on holiday. My skin felt nourished by the vitamin E , meanwhile the antioxidants and essential fatty acids helped the condition of my skin whilst protecting it. I used it on my hair as a alternative to my regular hair tamer. I only used a very small drop but noticed a difference. It did not leave my hair limp but left it shining nicely. I will be honest and say I would never have considered it for the bath or as a body oil, but it was a treat. It soaks in easily without leaving my skin greasy. I also loved it as an alternative to a hand and cuticle treatment. The fragrance of the argan oil is delicate and not obtrusive. My nails have been getting painted more frequently this summer and the oil was a welcome relief to my hands.
This brand has a great ethos. The women who extract the oil are truly at the heart of the brand and their design. I love the simplicity of the products. I also love that they have opened my eyes to using ethically sourced argan oil and using it in a number of ways. Truly beautiful products. Great simple packaging that does not leak. 5* Fifi Friendly luxurious product.
