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.

The Goods:
Josie Maran Natural Radiance Collection ($54).

The Cause:
Marocavie, a nonprofit that provides clean water and educational improvements to communities in Morocco.

The Deal:
Exclusive to MC readers by clicking here from now until Sept. 27. It will then be available at Sephora.
