(judge for the Artisan Product of the Year 2018)

KENZA Pure Fusion Oil – Organic daily moisturizer 0.17oz – 1oz – 2oz

KENZA Pure Fusion oil is a daily moisturizer that combines the benefits of two organic Moroccan Oils: Argan oil with Prickly Pear Seed Oil. It is light, quickly absorbed, deeply moisturizes skin, brightens the complexion, and nourishes your skin with natural antioxidants (vitamin E, K) and essential fatty acids. We do not believe in cheap fillers and have a zero tolerance policy for toxic chemicals.

At KENZA International Beauty we call it the upgrade to KENZA Pure Argan oil and the ideal skincare for mature skin (and men love it as an aftershave).

With KENZA Pure Prickly Pear Seed oil – Night Serum – they have been our Best Sellers worldwide for the last six years.

Last June 2018 we decided to create a new version of KENZA Pure Fusion Oil (the upgrade of the upgrade) by incorporating two powerful anti-aging beauty ingredients: Helichrysum Italicum, Immortelle and Wild Carrot Seed Oil in addition to Prickly Pear Seed Oil and Argan oil.
KENZA Pure GLOW is another pure blend of potent plant-based botanical oils and essential oils that yields to the ultimate skin care.

Global Natural Beauty Rise

“Being natural is incredibly empowering for women because it’s just who you are. You’re embracing all the beautiful things about you from your head to your toes. Because when you mask so much of your natural beauty, people don’t get to see that.”

(Rozonda Thomas)

The singer-songwriter and early ‘90s member of group TLC is spot on with her quote about natural beauty. And a lot of people seem to agree with her.

According to a recent report by Grand View Research, “growing demand for organic and natural hair care, skin care, and cosmetic products is expected to augment” the growth of the global organic personal care market to $25.1 billion by 2025 as demand for organic skincare, haircare, and cosmetics drives consumers to look for natural and organic labels.

Because skincare (body lotions, sunscreens, and face creams) is expected to have the largest market share, followed by haircare, natural and organic skincare is expected to be close to one-third of the total global organic beauty market.

This phenomenal growth is driven by factors such as:

– Changing consumer perception towards organic products

– Growing awareness of harmful effects associated with chemical substances

– Rising demand for chemical-free skin and hair care products

– Changing lifestyle of consumers regarding organic personal care

– The ability of natural ingredients to provide anti-oxidation properties and improve skin immunity

– E-commerce as a key source used by consumers’ access to products that are otherwise unavailable in malls and retail stores

– Stringent regulations promoting natural product use in the skincare industry

The global cosmetic market is highly competitive due to many large cosmetic brands. Market leaders are launching new products and acquiring smaller companies to grow their product line and to expand geographically.
KENZA International Beauty has carved a niche in this ultra-competitive market by providing the highest quality natural beauty products to meet the increasing demand for clean label products by health conscious consumers globally.

We also supply many indie beauty brands around the world that proudly create unique cosmetics with our wholesale organic Moroccan oils
Argan oil and Prickly Pear Seed Oil) and Essential oils (Lavender and Lavandin oils) sourced from Provence, France.

Our customers are now free to use less or no make-up and let their natural beauty shine!

How to create your own Hammam SPA?

I love my Saturdays!
Taking time off should be taken without guilt.

Don’t you love the weekend when you get to relax, exercise, spend quality time with your family and friends and most importantly pamper yourself?

After a long week of work managing my business, taking care of my family and figuring out what’s for dinner, I make sure to take some time off and Saturday is my day. On that day, I am neither a mom nor a wife, I am Khadija and I make myself a priority. It may sound selfish but I truly believe that you can always give the best of yourself when you take time to decompress, change your mind and step out of your routine.

What I love is taking fitness classes or working out on my own at Equinox Fitness Club. After working out I love to treat myself, depending on how much time I have, with either a reflexology massage a manicure & pedicure or with a Moroccan Hammam SPA (my ultimate favorite).

Of course I bring all I need: Beldi soap (Moroccan Black Soap), kissa (exfoliating glove), a hair mask, a facial scrub (that I also use as a mask because it has dry rose petals powder, honey and Argan oil. Soon available in our e-store), and my Argan oil, Fusion oil and Eye Serum. Oh, I forgot I soak my hair the night before with my Hair oil Treatment too.

I have to admit that it is nice to have a facility like Equinox where I can do all of this but you can create your own Hammam SPA at home as well. Here is how:

MOROCCAN HAMMAM SPA RITUAL

KENZA Beldi Soap & Kissa Exfoliating glove.

• In a Moroccan Hammam SPA or your bathroom warm up your body with a hot bath, shower or steam for 10 min to open pores.

• Set up your ambience with essential oils, a diffuser and candles. kenza-aromatology-1

• Apply generously (1 tablespoon) KENZA Pure Moroccan Black Soap all over your body. Let it penetrate for 5 to 10 min (it is important to stay in a warm environment). Rinse off with warm water (no soap).

• Soak your KENZA Kissa Hammam Glove in hot water to soften it before use.

• Rinse the glove and start massaging gently skin (body only) in a circular motion. After few minutes layers of dead skin and impurities will roll off the body onto the “Kissa” exfoliating glove. (Wash and dry your KENZA Hammam Glove).

• Soak hair with KENZA Pure Hair Treatment Oil, wrap with a towel or plastic cover. Leave 30min (or the night before).

• In a glass bowl mix a cup of KENZA Pure Rhassoul Lava Clay with 1/2 cup of KENZA Pure Rose Toner , few drops of KENZA Pure Lavender Oil and add warm water or milk until you get the right consistency of a paste to all over your body and face. Lie down, let it dry for 15-20 min. Rinse the clay off.

• Wash with your favorite KENZA Soap (SPA Bar Soap or Moroccan Oils Soap) and shampoo hair.

• Indulge in a rich, fragrant and sensual KENZA Pure Marrakech Body Oil and apply your favorite KENZA Facial oil (Argan oil, Prickly Pear Seed Oil, or Fusion oil).

Moroccan Argan oil and social change for women

Argan Oil: A Moroccan Craft
Argan Oil: A Moroccan Craft

My fourth annual visit to the women coop in Arazane

In late September, I traveled to Morocco to visit the Tirizite cooperative in Arazane for the fourth time in as many years. In addition to my support of the New York Women’s Foundation and of Turning Point for Women and Families, I try to help the cooperative Tirizite as much as I can as part of the KENZA International Beauty socially responsible mission.

My fourth annual visit to the women coop in Arazane

After an 8hr bus ride from Casablanca to Agadir and another 2hr car drive, I arrived at Arazane. As soon as I pulled into the parking lot of Latifa’s house, I could hear the women singing a welcoming song in their Berber language. It brought tears to my eyes and warmed my heart.

Every year the coop makes some progress. Latifa, the coop Director, informed me the coop has joined a union of cooperatives in the Taroudant area (this will allow it to pool some resources, to share best practices, and to have a stronger market presence); has been certified NormaCert which guarantees the Argan oil origin and quality; successfully underwent an inspection by the Moroccan Department of Health; and it will be showcased in a fair in Germany representing Moroccan products. These are all great news but have expenses attached.

Cooperative Tirizite Arazane Morocco

On the other hand, new challenges always arise. I also learned the women had not been working for some time because the coop had run out of Argan nuts and it could not afford to buy any more. Therefore, this year KENZA International Beauty donated the coop a lump sum to buy about 3,000 lb. of Argan nuts and to cover other expenses. This aid helps the coop provide jobs for the women so that they can be more productive and financially independent.

Argan oil Social change

My assistant and I spent the day with the women to learn more about their work and responsibilities at the cooperative. Here are two videos that we hope you will enjoy and see how the Argan oil process is not as easy as it seems. We value the hard work of all the women working in cooperatives in Morocco producing many products that we all love.

We are grateful for your continuous support, for being loyal to our brand: KENZA“be generously beautiful”™ and for allowing us to spread more LOVE-BEAUTY-GENEROSITY
