The Kingdom of Morocco is a country on the northwestern tip of Africa. I had the privilege to explore Marrakech for a week, the City of Red and one influenced by its French colonial times and a unique mix of Arabic, Berber, European and African cultures.
Just about 350 kilometers away from the city of Marrakech is Tinghir, the foothills of the Atlas mountain range and an enclave of beauty secrets of the Moroccan people. Rich in natural ingredients native to their country, my journey from Tinghir to the Sahara saw me some of Morocco’s best ingredients.
Argan oil is derived from first picking the fruits of the Argan trees native to Morocco and drying them in the sun. The nut is extracted from the fruit and hand-cracked with stones and pressed by a rotary press stone.
Argan Oil is rich in Vitamin A and E and antioxidants. The oil is an amazing moisturizer, absorbed quickly by the skin and will not clog pores. It’s moisturizing properties work very well on damaged or coloured hair, reducing frizz and making it look luxurious and soft.
