Kahina Giving Beauty



Of all the beauty brands I have come across, none are more special to me than the ones I discovered while on a different mission. So it was a couple of months ago when I walked past a new counter at Robinsons, Kahina Giving Beauty which is a holistic line of organic skin care named for a Berber Queen and prophetess, a symbol of empowerment and a heroine for the Berber women.

The core ingredient in Kahina Giving Beauty products is Moroccan Argan Oil. The founder of Kahina Giving Beauty, Katharine L’Heureux personally experienced the benefits of this multipurpose oil during an extended journey through the Moroccan desert.

Katharine founded Kahina Giving Beauty in 2008 and since then, she has made multiple trips to Morocco to personally source the oil and ensure the ethical treatment of the cooperative members. As a testament to the essential role that the female artisans play in the effectiveness and beauty of the Kahina Giving Beauty line, their actual signatures grace the packaging on every product. A percentage of profits from the sale of every Kahina Giving Beauty product goes to support programs that improve the lives of these women.

These are the star products in Kahina Giving Beauty:-
