As we launch the KENZA International Beauty website:
www.Kenza-puremoroccanbeautyoils.com, I am filled with joy and gratitude for the love and support I have received throughout this undertaking.
I am still amazed how far the idea of creating a Corporate Social Enterprise has made it from its humble beginning. It steadily grew stronger with the help, involvement, advice, hard work, and encouragement received from my family, my friends, my Moroccan women cooperative team, and my suppliers.
While we pause at this time to thank all of you for being part of the KENZA “be generously beautiful”™ family and helping reach this milestone, we set our sights onto developing new and creative ways of fulfilling KENZA’s aspiration: “to broaden the meaning of physical beauty to also include generosity and its global impact.”
The video of my visit to the Tirizite Women Cooperative in Arazane, Morocco is ready!
Please watch this 12 minutes video of my visit to the Moroccan women cooperative that KENZA International will support and donate to. These are the incredible, courageous, and inspiring women behind our KENZA Pure Moroccan Beauty Oils that we all love. My video recording crew apologizes for the loud nut-cracking noise during the first 4-1/2 minutes, but the sound quality improves thereafter.
Although I have used Argan Oil for many years, I have to admit that it was not until earlier this year that I discovered Pure Prickly Pear Seed oil. This happens to be another beauty treasure from my native country of Morocco and which Europeans have been crazy about for many years already. It is a potent antioxidant beauty oil that it is currently the most sought after ingredient for the beauty and cosmetic industry.
Pure Prickly Pear Seed Oil is also 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 (or half a ton of fruit) are required to yield about 34oz. of oil.
Prickly Pear Seed Oil has a high concentrations of Tocopherol (Vitamin E) and essential fatty acids (Linoleic Acid or Omega 6). This oil contains more Tocopherol (molecules with strong antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties) than any other oil available in the beauty care market (almost 1-1/2 times more Tocopherol than Argan oil).
I am myself a user and a fan of this precious oil. I had two large dark spots on my face due to hyper-pigmentation. My dermatologist prescribed the usual chemical “bleaching” hydroquinone creams as treatment.
However, my face skin had a bad reaction to the creams and it turned dry, itchy, with red spots. I immediately stopped using the creams, cancelled my follow up appointments, and instead decided to try this organic, pure, and natural product. I applied it religiously every night and, after a few months, I can show you that this precious oil does indeed work. My dark spot have diminished and my complexion is even and smooth. Also, my eye shadows are brighter while my skin is deeply moisturized and has a healthy, natural glow.
For people that, like me, have suffered with skin imperfections that make us feel uncomfortable, here is a completely natural product with exceptional components that, used in a concentrated form, will give you results.
I used to have a Brazilian Keratin treatment done as soon as the summer starts just not to have FRIZZY, PUFFY (like an angry Blow Fish) hair. This summer I had a cheaper version: ARGAN Oil. It works wonderfully for the frizz and the puffiness you get at the beach, when it rains or just with the NYC humidity. Check out my hair at the beach on the picture and you know I have curly, crazy, thick hair.
