The Story - Behind the Product
Exotic Morocco is famed for many things, among them their unique spa experiences with ingredients found no where else in the world. Anti-aging argan oil is pressed from fruits grown in the Argan Forest. Attempts to produce these fruits in countries like Italy and Mexico have failed. Argan trees dot the desert region along Morocco’s western coast. These nutrient little fruits produce a nourishing, penetrating oil high in anti-aging vitamins A & E.
The berber women have long used the oil to protect their skin against the powerful Sahara sun. Their skin, even into their eighties is amazingly supple and smooth. They also use argan oil to condition and grow their hair. Shea Terra Organics has been importing this amazing oil directly from producers in Morocco for over a decade. The amount of fruit and labor necessary to produce this oil explains its high cost. In recent years, however, argan has finally received the recognition that it deserves. Sadly, this has also meant that foreign countries are now exploiting the oil, taking the control of the oil away from the women who monetarily benefitted from this oil for thousands of years. Tammie took her children on a journey to meet with their supplying group, a wonderful cooperative of women set up to preserve the womens ancient oil producing art. The oil she has selected is still stone made by the women to ensure that more women benefit from the argan sales.
Argan oil is combined with Morocco’s rare ghassool clay to produce an amazing bar that purifies the skin while cleansing the hair. Ghassool clay is unique in that it actually softens the skin while pulling out impurities. Its high silica content makes it healing to sores, wounds and even cracks in the feet. Incorporated into a blend of organic oils including 33% organic shea butter, Argan & Ghassool Shampoo + Spa Body Bar is an exotic, purifying skin and hair treatment.
