One woman’s mission to bring beauty to the art of giving is now supplying women of the world with the highest quality pure, organic, nutrient-rich argan and prickly-pear oils.
Khadija Fairy, founder of KENZA International Beauty, helps support women’s cooperatives in her native Morocco, with the gorgeous skincare products in her brand. We sat down with her to learn more.
What sparked the birth of KENZA International Beauty?
My Moroccan pride and the desire to sharing the best with the world!
I was outraged when I started seeing products advertising in big, bold letters the name Argan oil or Moroccan oil while offering primarily synthetic ingredients infused with just a drop of real Argan oil. When you read the ingredient list and see Argan oil or Argania Spinosa kernel oil all the way at the bottom, it means the products contain a drop. To me that was wrong and disrespectful to our Moroccan Argan oil.
How did you turn your passion for pure Moroccan Argan oil into a business?
I started to research the most reliable supplier in Morocco, one who could guarantee the highest quality Argan oil. I had also tried a sample of organic Prickly Pear Seed oil and it removed my hyperpigmentation, so I decided I wanted to invest in this precious botanical oil, too.
In 2012, I launched five products with certified organic Argan oil and Prickly Pear Seed oil: Three facial oils, a hair treatment oil and a bar soap. I then started receiving requests from indie beauty businesses to offer my products wholesale. Now I offer over 40 products under our brand name KENZA be generously beautiful™ to retail, wholesale and private label worldwide.
You mentioned that the Prickly Pear Seed Oil cleared your hyperpigmentation, can you tell us more?
Prickly Pear Seed Oil is the amazing beauty oil that all mature skin needs! When used in its pure, concentrated form, it has the abilities to super moisturize skin while brightening it and give it a natural healthy glow. A few drops leave the skin silky soft, plump and radiant.
Pure Prickly Pear Seed Oil has a high concentration of Tocopherol (Vitamin E – Antioxidants: phenols, flavonoids, essential fatty acids (Linoleic Acid or Omega 6) and carotenoids. This oil contains more Tocopherol than any other oil available in the beauty care market (almost 150% more Tocopherol than Argan oil).
