It was on a 2001 sourcing trip to Morocco for her skincare line that Josie Maran first fell in love with the spirit — and supple skin — of a tribe of Berber women known for producing argan oil. (A Moroccan beauty staple, the oil is loaded with vitamin E and essential fatty acids.) Maran asked the women to supply her with the precious ingredient, and a happy partnership ensued.
Now she wants to give back to their community: Starting September 13, Maran is offering MC readers her three best sellers — the rose-hued lip and cheek tint, shimmering luminizer, and pure argan oil moisturizer — at a discount, with all proceeds benefiting the local nonprofit group Marocavie, which brings clean water and electricity to the villages of Biougra and Essaouira. Glowing skin plus helping others? Beautiful.
Josie Maran Natural Radiance Collection ($54).
Marocavie, a nonprofit that provides clean water and educational improvements to communities in Morocco.
Exclusive to MC readers by clicking here from now until Sept. 27. It will then be available at Sephora.
