Argania spinosa is the name of a rare and precious tree native to Morocco. Our signature line is based on Argan Oil, a nourishing and hydrating oil harvested from the fruit of the Argan tree, found primarily in Morocco. Argan Oil naturally enhances vital cell functions and is unusally rich in anti-oxidants (particularly Vitamin E) so it neutralizes free radicals and reinforces the skin’s defense system. Argan oil moisturizes, smoothes, and softens, while curtailing the effects of time.
Ghassoul is also called Natural T’fel. It is North African Clay. Ghassoul means “to wash and clean,” and is an ancient ingredient.
It is a natural way to clean skin and hair very thoroughly and carefully. It has been used for centuries in North Africa to clean and detoxify skin. We offer pure Ghassoul from the North African Atlas Mountain quarries in the salon. It can be a great addition to your skin care regimen. Ghassoul looks like dry flakes and can be recomposed with warm water to have a creamy texture. It is applied directly on a clean face (of course avoiding eye contour). The result is that large pores will appear smaller, skin will glow, the complexion will look more even, and your skin will feel smoother.
Our area of focus is skin care and waxing, as well as special treatments such as Peels and Microdermabrasion using cutting edge technology for maximum results.
We are located in Downtown Berkeley 2003 Milvia Street Berkeley, CA 94704.
