For centuries, Moroccan woman have used organic argan oil to protect, nourish and enhance the quality of their skin. In 2007, KAHINA Giving Beauty founder Katharine L’Heureux personally experienced the benefits of this multipurpose oil during an extended journey through the Moroccan desert. Amazed at the results on her own skin, she brought back the rare oil, encouraging friends and family to put it on their faces, hair, and bodies. Through this simple gift, Katharine had found a way to connect women across the world through a shared beauty ritual. Since founding her company in 2008, Katharine has made multiple trips to Morocco to personally source the oil and ensure the ethical treatment of the women who work to extract the oil. As a testament to the essential role the female artisans play in the effectiveness and beauty of the Kahina line, their actual signatures grace the packaging on every product.
