Our Founder, Mariam Skalli, shares her story behind Skalli Essentials natural Moroccan beauty products:
"Every culture has their own age-old beauty traditions that have been passed on for generations. In Morocco, where I am from, that would be Moroccan argan oil. This cult-favorite beauty oil is so valuable because pure argan oil can only be found and produced in Morocco. I grew up using argan oil in both my food and my skincare. I decided to purchase argan oil from a brand that claimed it was 100% pure argan oil from Morocco. This brand is very well-known, so I did not hesitate to try incorporating it into my skincare routine. But when I used it, I realized it was not the argan oil I grew up using. It was impure, deodorized, and so heavily processed. Then I did some research and found that the top argan oil brands do not even purchase their argan oil from Morocco! It comes from a factory where they dilute the oil with other oils, and process the oil to remove the natural scent of pure argan oil.
As you can imagine, I was so disappointed. These companies are not selling the real argan oil that I know and love. I decided to start a truly Moroccan skincare brand where all of our products come straight from Morocco. No nonsense ingredients. That's how we started sourcing REAL argan oil from my country through Skalli Essentials."
