ABOUT THIS BRANDFounder Katharine L'Heureux discovered argan oil on a 2007 trip to Morocco where she became enchanted with the beauty traditions of its indigenous Berber women. Inspired to build a modern beauty line based on their traditional beauty rituals, she sources her ingredients through working cooperatives that directly benefit the women of this semi-desert region. Katharine visits regularly to gauge how Giving Beauty can best support the women of the region which so far has included funding the organic certification of a women's argan oil cooperative, providing housing and drinking water for girls in school, buying sheep to provide wool and milk and planting trees in rural villages. Each of Kahina Giving Beauty's argan-infused bottles bears the signatures of the women who extract the precious golden oil, recognized as the artisan heroines behind the brand and emblematic of the exchange of beauty and energy that make up this consciously crafted skin care line. Using its signature ingredient, argan oil, in conjunction with pure botanical actives, this sophisticated collection matches luxury with soul.
I use this after bath/shower for maximum results but also follow-up with a body butter especially for knees, elbows, feet & hands. For me, it goes on oily but absorbs quickly leaving a soft skin feel. The serum does have a strong, deep aromatic scent that smells earthy & woodsy at the same time but once the serums absorbs & quenches skin (melded nicely with my body butter) the scent lessens. For reference, I’m in my 40s & I usually do a fresh scrub with an exfoliating mitten once per week to get rid of dead skin (best results day when followed by the serum).
Hi Sharmine, We are so happy to hear that the Essaouira Body Serum is working for you, we just love everything from Kahina Giving Beauty. Thanks for sharing!
This is gorgeous. Everything Kahina does, they do extremely well. Beautiful scent but not overwhelming, melds well with other fragrances. Moisturizing but not greasy.
