It has been a while since I have written about what one of my favorite companies, Kahina Giving Beauty. Since that time, the company has exploded with celebrities, skincare experts and people who really care about their skin; flocking to the brand. Kahina Giving Beauty continues to come up with new ideas using Argan oil.
Argan oil has high concentrations of nutrients like highly potent antioxidants. Argan oil neutralizes free radicals, reduces inflammation, minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and protects the skin from harsh environmental factors.
First a little reminder of what Kahina Giving Beauty is about:
Kahina Giving Beauty products have the purest argan oil. Berber Women of Morocco have been using argan oil for years to protect their skin the desert. Kahina is named for a Berber queen and prophetess who reigned in Morocco circa 700 CE. Kahina is a heroine to Berber women. Kahina Giving Beauty was founded by Katharine Phillips L’Heureux after a trip to Morocco where she discovered the effectiveness of pure argan oil. Kahina Giving Beauty is aptly names as it gives back 25% of the profits from the sale of Kahina Giving Beauty products to support initiatives to help these women.
Berber women extract the oil from the nut of the argan tree. These women actually reside in North Africa in the among the argan forests. Kahina Giving Beauty is helping these women in the argan cooperatives by providing them with their first chance at economic and social freedom. Many of them are learning to read and write for the first time through literacy programs provided by the cooperatives. Kahina Giving Beauty packaging is actually decorated with the signatures of some of the Berber women.
I have recently been using the Facial Cleanser which is nothing short of liquid gold for me.
High concentrations of Vitamin E and fatty acids in argan oil, coupled with organic willowbark and papaya extracts to:• Replace moisture loss• Eliminate toxins and impurities• Gently tone and exfoliate• Brighten skinWash away impurities without stripping your skin of its natural oils. This cleanser is naturally scented with neroli essential oils extracted from orange flower blossoms and herbaceous Moroccan blue tansy.This product is a beauty world darling. It is natural, smells amazing and gently gets rid of the racoon eyes we experience at days end. New England winter has nothing on this Facial Cleanser , which also marks the first time my skin is not chapped. Coincidence? I think not.
I use the cleanser, moisturize and then finish with the Kahina Eye Cream
High concentrations of Vitamin E and omega fatty acids in argan oil, coupled with North Atlantic sea fennel and white and green tea, help to:• Enhance moisture retention while boosting collagen production• Stimulate microcirculation to decrease puffiness and dark circles• Soothe and relax muscles around the eyes to reduce the appearance of fine lines• Fight free radicals that contribute to cellular damage and agingThe Kahina Eye Cream really does the trick. I have been plagued with under eye skin that peels every winter, which not only makes them super-sensitive, but embarrassing. This works wonders and is gentle enough to not burn my delicate skin.
Perhaps my favorite new product is the FEZ Body Serum
Mysterious, sensual and exotic, a complex blend of steam distilled essential oils evokes the sacred Imperial city of Fez, Morocco, in this moisturizing body oil rich in Vitamin E to replenish and restore dry skin.Rose and orange blossoms are mixed with citrus notes and layered over the scents of antiquity: patchouli, sandalwood and ylang ylang, with lingering hints of cumin and clove from the spice market.• High concentrations of argan oil help improve elasticity and skin texture while soothing redness• Watermelon, sunflower, olive and coconut oils deeply moisturize and absorb readily• Aromatherapy benefits: relieves stress, stimulates circulation, calms nervesI could literally drink this stuff. Can we say obsessed? I have lived in Saudi Arabia as a child and this reminded me of the souks. Nothing invigorates freshly washed skin like this. The scent does linger (in an enticing, not cloying way) which means you can even forgo perfume. My husband adores when I wear this. It does a wonderful job of keeping my skin smooth and supple.
Kahina Giving Beauty, be sure and check out the sets they do. The Spa Set comes with three of their must-have products in a gorgeous bag hand-loomed by seventeenth generation weavers in Fes, Morocco. The pouch is made from fibers of the aloe vera cactus plant, so it looks like silk but is 100% vegan and durable. I happen to be a proud owner of this bag and fits all of my cosmetics. It is beautifully made, and just like the products, a true work of art. The Argan and Aloe Set is another great option that comes with the toning mist and argan oil.
I look forward to using more items from this amazing brand. Giving really is beautiful.
