WHAT MAKES KAHINA'S ARGAN OIL SO SPECIAL?
Not all argan oil is created equally. There are varying qualities of cosmetic argan oil on the market, as evidenced by the wildly differing prices of oil currently for sale.
Why is this so?
The most important factor in determining argan oil quality is the “goat factor”. The argan nut is a hard almond-like seed, encased in an external shell and a fruity outside pulp. The nuts that are gathered for oil must have the exterior pulp intact. If there is no pulp, it means that the nut has been eaten and digested by a goat (goats love to eat the nuts) imparting a foul smell to the oil. Often, these “goat nuts” will be sold at a low price and then the oil will be deodorised, a process that destroys the essential nutrients in the oil. This is typically the case of the lower priced oils on the market.
Other important factors include location and harvesting methods. It is essential to recognise that it is most often the women who do the hard work of extracting the argan oil who are undercut in the market for low-priced argan oil. It is crucial that these women receive a fair wage for their labour in order to make the money they need to survive. Kahina Giving Beauty CEO Katharine L’Heureux personally and regularly visits every cooperative that supplies their oil. This ensures top quality oil from top quality nuts and also the fair treatment and compensation of the women workers.
