Why do I bring my Argan oil with me when I travel and especially to Morocco?

Why do I bring my Argan oil with me when I travel and especially to Morocco where it is widely available?

We all know by now that Argan oil or Moroccan oil is only sourced in Morocco. It is an oil that is produced from Argan nuts that grow only in the southern part of Morocco.

When you travel to Morocco you can see it everywhere and with its increased popularity this last decade worldwide, everybody got into producing and selling Argan oil in Morocco. Unfortunately not all products on the market are regulated which makes it difficult for you buyers to differentiate between good Argan oi, chemically processed and even fake ones.

How can you be sure you are buying pure, authentic, unadulterated, and unrefined Moroccan Argan oil?

That was my main mission when I decided to launch KENZA International Beauty. Those were my worries. How can I be sure to provide only the highest quality, 100% Pure and organic Moroccan Argan oil?

Being native from this country, knowing so well the behind the scenes of the Argan oil business led me to search for the only supplier that can guarantee the highest quality with not only laboratory tests analyses but also certifications like USDA organic and most importantly ISO9001 international quality certification.

Most production of Argan oil in Morocco is organic and has been handcrafted by Berber women at cooperatives for centuries.

How Moroccan Argan oil is produced is one question to ask but the main concern to have is how is it processed, what production requirements does it go through, how is it packaged and what are the procedures implicated to guarantee the quality of the final product?

This is why I found a supplier in Morocco, and one of the few here that is ISO9001 certified.
Every batch that enters the manufacture goes first to be tested for authenticity and quality. Every batch no matter how long they have been working with the cooperatives supplying them.

At KENZA International Beauty we offer two organic Moroccan oils: Argan oil and Prickly Pear Seed Oil that go through the extensive regulated process from production, packaging to shipping to guarantee that you are only using the highest quality products.

What is Argan Oil or Moroccan Argan Oil?

WHAT IS ARGAN OIL or MOROCCAN ARGAN 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.

What is Argan Oil?
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,

– conditions the skin hydro-lipid layer and locks in moisture
– improves skin elasticity
– treats scars, stretch marks, minor bugs bites, and rashes
– helps to heal acne and blemishes
– softens and strengthens nails and cuticles
– nourishes and conditions hair and prevents split ends
