This precious soap has captured light into a thousand gold sequins that sparkle in her transparent heart evoking a rare print of a sunset in the desert. This sumptuous soap enriched with nourishing argan oil is in contact with the water a fine creamy mousse touch. It releases an unforgettable fragrance of noble and powerful wood soothed by a subtle hint of orange blossom. Cedar wood plays with cinnamon before revealing the flower as well as gourmet chips fresh almonds.
The argan tree, endemic to south Morocco, plays a key ecological role in protecting the area from desertification and soil erosion. It produces an edible oil when its fruit is roasted, or a cosmetic plant oil if it is extracted by first cold pressing. Argan oil benefits from a PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) guarantee label which confirms its origin. In order to preserve its main active ingredients and pleasant taste, it must not be exposed to heat.
The economic sector for this oil is set apart by the fact that it involves women, who are often in a precarious situation. They harvest the argan, then produce this oil for small communities.
It is appreciated in cosmetics for its unique components, in particular omega 6 and 9, vitamin E and squalene. Its polyunsaturated fatty acids give it anti-aging and antioxidant properties which Berber women had intuitively known for centuries. Argan oil rebuilds the cutaneous barrier, limits skin water loss and increases collagen synthesis.
We also appreciate the shell of the stone – a residue from the manufacture of the oil – which, when dried and reduced to a powder, becomes an effective natural exfoliator.
This perfume is the fruit of the bold blend of white wood warmed by the sun, and gourmet, oh so slightly sugary notes. Strong and powerful cedar wood and cinnamon bark are soothed by the subtlety of almond and slightly reserved orange blossom which lifts the ambiance. This elegant creation flourishes in two foaming skincare products which really come into their own in contact with water vapor.
