It’s not long been launched in the UK – and is an organic treat for dry, dehydrated skin… at £35 a pot – the Kahina Fez Hand and Body Balm contains high concentrations of the increasingly popular ingredient, Argan Oil. It also has the relieving and medicinal properties of calendula (or “Mary’s Gold” as the Greeks used to call it) and the plant-derived butters of; carrot seed oil, shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil and mango nut butter.
Kahina Giving Beauty donates 25% of their profits to the indigenous women of Morocco who harvest and produce the Argan Oil at the core of their products. Argan oil is a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree and is endemic to Morocco.
“For centuries, the hard work of extracting oil from the nut of the argan tree has been performed by Berber women, the indigenous people of North Africa, many of whom live in Morocco’s argan region. The work is extremely labor intensive. It can take one woman up to eight hours to crack the nuts for one liter of oil. Read more HERE“
The Kahina product sourced from Morocco and created in New York – claims to never use artificial preservatives, parabens, artificial colorants, artificial fragrances, petrochemicals, harsh detergents, DEA, TEA, toxic ingredients, or animal testing and is encouraged for use on severely dry, chapped skin..
But what’s it like you ask?! With this product – a little goes a long way – with it’s delicious smelling soothing aroma – the warm spicy balm is calming not only for the hand but also works its magic on the mind. Chapped from the cold weather and washing detergents (not good!) my hands have been suffering from general daily duties. This beauty balm is exactly what it claims on the box – it feels luxurious and offers the sexy comeback my hands need after a hard weekend of DIY.. a few drops of lavender on the pillow – and a small amount of Kahina Fez and one feels instantly relaxed and on the way back to repair.. heaven in a pot.. lush!
