Kahina Giving Beauty Helps Support Berber Women

Berber women of Morocco welcome Katharine L'Heureux by tattooing her hands with henna.

This morning I had the pleasure of meeting Katharine L’Heureux, the founder of Kahina Giving Beauty, a line of organic skincare products based on 100 percent organic argan oil sourced from the women’s cooperatives of Morocco. Not only are her products amazing, but also 25 percent of her company’s profits go to the Berber women of Morocco who hand extract the argan oil using centuries-old techniques passed down the rough generations. The money raised is dedicated to literacy education and women’s rights programs. “These women can’t even write their own names, yet they produce the most amazing product,” says L’Heureux. “It occurred to me that I could help them while creating a skincare line that really works and that women can feel good about buying.”

The line is currently being carried in spas across the country, including International Orange (San Francisco) and various Exhale locations. To find out more about the product line and how Katharine is helping a great cause, click here.

    Wow! I didn’t know that. What a great example of better business practices. I love it. It’s more than business really. It’s community and we should all take notice of what L’Heureux is doing. Kudos to her and may we all apply it.
