A lifetime believer in the potential of beauty rituals to delight and empower, Katharine L’Heureux discovered argan oil on the first of many journeys to Morocco. Today, founder and CEO of Kahina Giving Beauty, Katharine has built a holistic regimen around this multipurpose ingredient that enhances the lives of both the artisan and end-user. Katharine continues to visit the cooperatives from which Kahina’s argan oil is sourced to ensure the fair and proper treatment of the Berber women who extract it—women whose signatures grace each package in the Kahina Giving Beauty line. Kahina Giving Beauty embodies Katharine’s dedication to preserving indigenous people and culture, protecting the environment, and giving back.
