I have two words for you: Argan Oil.
Argan Oil is truly a gift from Mother Nature that is prized for its nutrition value, anti-aging effects on the skin and the numerous medicinal properties its capable of. Argan Oil is produced from the nuts of the Argan tree which is found exclusively in the southwest region of Morocco.
Beauty stuff aside, Argan Oil does a lot of amazing things for the community that manufactures it. All of the Argan Oil sold today is produced by a fair trade working women cooperative in Morocco. This cooperative is designed to provide fair wages, steady income, good working conditions, health care, literacy and education programs and a true sense of empowerment to these women who live in a traditionally male-dominated society.
In addition to sustaining the community, the cooperative also works closely with the Moroccan Water and Forest Authorities. This relationship helps to protect the Argan trees from becoming extinct by planting nurseries. The nurseries not only enable optimal tree growth, but help to nurture the land on which they grow on.
Argan Oil is a ingredient that both your skin and your social conscience will feel good about using.
