Moroccan Beauty Ritual SPA

Perhaps you’ve been to Morocco and you were lucky enough to have experienced our Moroccan hammam beauty ritual and now you want to recreate this wonderful experience (and in our opinion, this is the ultimate self-care beauty ritual you can give to yourself). We can help you do that!

In Morocco women and men go to the hammam at least once a week to cleanse their mind, body, and soul. The hammam is a bathhouse, similar to the Turkish bath, where you go to get a whole body scrub to remove the dead skin, cleanse yourself and get a body massage.

When I go to Morocco I overindulge in this traditional beauty ritual and When I come back to my home in New York I enjoy recreating it because my body and soul miss it.

What is Prickly Pear Seed Oil?

WHAT IS PRICKLY PEAR SEED OIL (Barbary Fig Oil, Cactus Oil, Aknari or Opuntia Ficus Indica)?
 
The Opuntia Ficus Indica plant is a member of the cactus family and is commonly known as Prickly Pear (also known as India Fig Opuntia or Barbary Fig). Native to Mexico, it can now be found in various arid and semi-arid areas of the world such as Morocco. Also called the miracle plant for its ability to survive during long droughts and still produce healthy fruits, the cactus plant grows in open fields without exposure to fertilizers or pesticides.
 
 
The Prickly Pear fruit contains numerous small black seeds from which the precious Prickly Pear Seed Oil is extracted. The oil has been used by generations of Berber women to fend off the effects of dry desert conditions.

 
  
Prickly Pear Seed Oil is one of the most expensive beauty oils in the world. Its production requires a labor intensive and time consuming (up to four days) process manually handled by Moroccan women at cooperatives. The Prickly Pear seeds are separated from the pulp and are then dried before being cold pressed. Because each seed contains only 5% of oil, up to 60 lbs. of seeds (and a half a ton of fruits) are required to yield about 34oz. of oil.

 
 

Composition & Benefits
 
Prickly Pear Seed Oil has a high concentration of Tocopherol (Vitamin E) and essential fatty acids (Linoleic Acid or Omega 6). This oil contains more Tocopherol than any other oil available in the beauty care market (almost 150% more Tocopherol than Argan oil).”Tocopherols are molecules with strong antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties.”*
 

Prickly Pear Seed Oil is a potent non-greasy treatment (due to its high level of antioxidant and fatty acids) that is easily absorbed by the skin. Among its many natural benefits, KENZA Pure Prickly Pear Seed Oil:
 

– protects against free radicals ( highest level of vitamin E)
– nourishes, moisturizes, and softens the skin
– tightens pores for a smoother and refined skin texture
– prevents premature aging and wrinkles formation
– brightens dark spots and under-eye shadows
– erases hyperpigmentation spots
 

KENZA Pure Prickly Pear Seed Oil is ideal to use as a night serum for an intense treatment of the face, neck, and décolleté that leaves your skin with a healthy natural glow.
 
 
Fatty Acids In Prickly Pear Seed Oil**
Oleic Acid 20.6%
Linoleic Acid 60.5%
Stearic Acid 3.2%
Palmitic Acid 13.9%
Tocopherol 895 mg/kg
 
Our Organic Prickly Pear Seed Oil is available retail and wholesale in our e-store. We ship worldwide.

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 & Prickly Pear Seed Oil

Because we aim to promote and distribute the best Moroccan Argan oil & Prickly Pear Seed Oil, we are glad to see the world is finally discovering and appreciating Argan oil.

According to a just-released study by new report by Grand View Research, Inc:

– Global Argan oil market was 4,835.5 tons in 2014 and is expected to reach 19,622.5 tons by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 19.6% from 2015 to 2022.

– The product is considered one of the most expensive vegetable oil. This is on account of limited supply coupled with a high requirement. Expensive nature of the product is expected to result in high revenues over the forecast period.

– Cosmetics segment was the leading application segment and accounted for over 40% of total demand in 2014 and is expected to show significant growth in the coming years. The growth of personal care industry is expected to drive this segment over the forecast period.

– Medical and food application areas are expected to witness high growth rates over the forecast period. Product demand in medical segment is expected to be driven by its potential to cure diseases including cancer, inflammatory problems, cholesterol levels, and food digestion.

– Middle East & Africa was the leading regional market both in terms of production and consumption. Argan oil is majorly consumed by rural economy of Morocco, which is a major producer, therefore, demand rate is higher in the region as compared to others.

– North America is expected to witness the highest CAGR of 20.2% from 2014 to 2022 on account of its increasing demand in cosmetics for hair treatment and skin care products and in the medical industry for disease treatment.
