I wanted you to know I was featured in an article in The Guardian newspaper as a Moroccan entrepreneur that brings Argan oil to the United States:

USDA Organic Argan oil benefits for Skin and Hair

KENZA Pure Argan oil 100% Pure - USDA Organic

KENZA Pure Argan oil
100% Pure – USDA Organic

It all about Argan oil lately. The name is becoming so familiar in the beauty market all over the world and yet shoppers can be confused. Honestly I was too few years ago, even if I been around this liquid gold for over three decades. As a Moroccan myself, it was a difficult task to get authentic, pure Argan oil even in Morocco. So my advise to you is to read as much as you can, look for products that are pure with International certification that are trustable.

Do you really know what is Argan oil or Moroccan oil? What is the difference between cold pressed and hand pressed? Why the prices range from $15 to over $70 for a 2oz bottle? What are the real benefits of using 100% pure Argan oil that is USDA organic and ISO certified for quality?

What is Argan Oil or Moroccan oil?

Argan oil, one of the oldest beauty treasures from Morocco, is a multi-purpose natural beauty care product that will enhance your beauty life. This natural wonder oil, used by Moroccan women for centuries, is derived from the fruit of the Argan (Argania Spinosa) tree in the Southwest of Morocco. The Argan tree can live up to 200 years in a dry arid region and produces an oval-shape green and yellow fruit. A single tree yields 8-13 lbs. of Argan fruit per harvest while each fruit contains 2-3 kernels. Almost 7 lbs. of kernel are required to produce about 34 fl.oz. of Pure Argan Oil.

From nuts, kernels to Argan oil. At women cooperative in Arazane, Morocco

The production of Argan oil is a labor intensive process that involves manual handling by Moroccan women at cooperatives. After the nuts are collected, they are cracked open by hand with a stone to obtain the kernels which are then machine cold pressed to extract the precious Argan oil. It takes up to 20 hours to produce about 34 fl.oz of Argan Oil.

Composition & Benefits

Argan oil contains approximately twice as much Tocopherols (Vitamin E) than Olive Oil*.

“Tocopherols are molecules with strong anti-oxidant and free radical scavenging properties. gamma-Tocopherols, the most efficient free radical scavenger of all tocopherols, composes 69 percent of argan oil total tocopherols content”**

Its high level of essential fatty acids – Oleic (Omega 9) and Linoleic (Omega 6) – associated to powerful antioxidants (such as Tocopherols and Polyphenols) makes this natural beauty oil an essential element for moisturizing, treating, nourishing, conditioning, and protecting your skin, hair, cuticles, and nails.

>KENZA Pure Argan Oil is a potent non-greasy treatment that is easily absorbed by the skin. Among its many natural benefits,

“This oil has kept my skin moisturized and supple despite the windy autumn weather. It absorbs quickly into the skin and gives me a natural glow. I’ve accumulated some brown spots from my vacation in Thailand over the summer, and the oil, to my delight, is gradually lightening the spots. This oil will definitely be holding prime cabinet space throughout the rest of Autumn and Winter.”

- Blogger Megan of Seed To Serum: Argan for All!
“KENZA Pure Fusion Oil: This remarkable blend contains only two spectacular oils, argan and prickly pear. Wrinkles and dehydration are no match for these two nutrient-dense oils. This oil is perfect for purists looking for a little more oomph than argan alone can offer, but not willing to stray too far from the familiar. It is also wonderful for men because the scent is nutty, rather than sweet and flowery.”

Women entrepreneurs can boost the economy.

The Economist Business
Investing in businesswomen will boost the economy for everyone, says Tory Burch, chief executive and designer, Tory Burch
Nov 18th 2013 |From The World In 2014 print edition

This is an excellent article by Tory Burch that strongly resonate with me.

A brief summary:

Women entrepreneurs see the world through a different lense and, in turn, do things differently.

Yet they face a huge equality gap: while they own almost 30% of American firms, they employ only 6% of the workforce, and account for barely 4% of business revenues.

Narrowing the gender gap in employment would increase global income per person by as much as 20% by 2030.

The Tory Burch Foundation supports the economic empowerment of women entrepreneurs. It sees three top priorities for women entrepreneurs:

- access to capital
- mentoring and support
- entrepreneural education

Real men use Argan Oil!

I just had to share the recent Business Week article
“Yes, Real Men Drink Beer and Use Skin Moisturizer”
In summary, and as mentioned in the article, guys’ grooming products — hair serums, eye rollers, exfoliating scrubs — are reaching a wider audience than ever.


imagesMen Natural Shaving Kit

Shaving Kit

Although 90% of men spend a half-hour or less getting ready in the morning, there is a growing realization that men want to do more in the morning than just shower, shave, and shampoo. This explains why 70% of men age 18 to 24 use facial skincare products and why half of American men over 18 now use moisturizers, facial cleansers, or self-tanners as part of their daily routine.

KENZA - Scalp MassageMan

While it is true that men skin is generally thicker, tougher, and more oily, KENZA Pure Argan oil is the ideal skincare product to help to soothe razor burn, sun damage, oily skin, and acne. It can also be applied overnight to help fight wrinkles and crow’s feet around eyes and “shave” a few seconds off the morning routine. So, men don’t have to “eschew daily shaving” and sport faces with a few days’ stubble.

Unlike big name anti-wrinkles moisturizers/cream with a long list of (not organic) ingredients, KENZA Pure Argan oil is (surprise!) only 100% organic Argan oil.

Don’t let yourself go!! Use KENZA Pure Argan oil to “age well and put your best face forward” instead.

Pure Moroccan oils impact beauty and social change for women


Nice to read in this great article: African Oils, Exotic and in Demand
By TATIANA BONCOMPAGNI MARCH 12, 2014 in the The New York Times that many of our natural African beauty treasures are not only making an impact in the beauty industry, but also participating in social change at a global level.

…. “As part of an industrywide shift from chemical formulations to those based on botanical ingredients, many beauty companies are turning to Africa to find buzz-worthy ingredients. Among them are Clarins, which uses katafray, a tree extract from Madagascar, in its Double Serum ($85); Patyka, which added prickly pear oil from Morocco to its Supreme Defense Fluid ($90); and Colbert M.D., which relies on yangu, argan and marula oil for its Illumino Face Oil ($125)”.

….”According to a Nielsen study, the number of American consumers willing to pay more for products from socially responsible companies jumped from 36 percent in 2011 to 44 percent in 2013.
“This is not just a fad, this is a global trend,” said James Russo, a senior vice president for global consumer insights at the Nielsen Company”.

Khadija Fajry, Founder & CEO at KENZA International Beauty and a native of Morocco, envisioned the idea that pure beauty can also be generous and proudly offers her KENZA “be generously beautiful” ™ Skin & Hair line with two USDA organic, 100% pure Moroccan beauty oils: Argan oil & Prickly Pear Seed Oil that have been enjoyed by customers worldwide for their skin and hair care. And that are changing social responsibility to impact lives for women not only in Morocco, where women produce these beauty treasures but also in the US by partnering with Women’s foundations in the US to impact social change for deserving women fighting social inequalities, domestic violence and economic challenges.
