By now, you’ve probably heard of argan oil. But most people don’t realize that the buzzy ingredient has been a staple of Moroccan women for centuries—they use it to protect skin and hair against the fierce desert sun. For those of us who live in cooler climates, this 100 percent organic oil is no less of a lifesaver—it softens fine lines on our faces, adds suppleness to our strands, and protects against pollutants. You’ll be glad to know that Kahina™ gets its fair trade argan oil straight from the source: it’s sustainably produced by women’s cooperatives in Morocco using ancient harvesting techniques.
How it Works
High in nourishing omega acids and vitamin E, argan is a quick-absorbing hydrator with an impressive range of uses, from combating wrinkles to taming frizz. The purest of the pure, Kahina™’s premium organic version increases skin’s elasticity, deflects damaging free radicals, and helps repair hair damage. It also contains natural linoleic acid, a compound known to help skin and hair retain hydration.
How to Use
Don’t be afraid to get creative with this versatile oil. To use it as a face moisturizer, apply one to three drops (use more if you have a dry complexion) onto your clean face morning and night. You can also use it as a body oil, a hand treatment, or a shine-boosting hair serum.
