At KAHINA™ it begins with Argan Oil, also known as Morocco’s “Liquid Gold”. We carefully source our Argan Oil from high in the Anti-Atlas Mountains and closely monitor the harvesting and extraction process to ensure the highest quality oil, the protection of the argan forest, and the livelihood of the women who do the labor to collect and crack the nuts prior to cold-pressing.

Lessons I’ve learned from the berber woman of Morocco

In 2018 I was invited by Net-a-Porter to discuss “wellness” with their staff during the company’s “Wellness Week”. After giving it some thought, I decided to focus my discussion on the “Wellness Lessons I’ve learned from the Berber Women of Morocco”. These women have touched me deeply with their way of life, their strength and their creativity. I am celebrating the achievements of the Berber women of Morocco who have inspired me in creating the KAHINA™ brand.

Kahina – Giving Beauty

For centuries, the hard work of extracting oil from the nut of the argan tree has been performed by Berber women, the indigenous people of North Africa, many of whom live in Morocco’s argan region. The work is extremely labor intensive. It can take one woman up to eight hours to crack the nuts for one liter of oil. This labor provides the women with an opportunity for social and economic freedom that they would not otherwise have.
