Argan oil is derived from the nut of an Argan tree in the southwest region of Morocco. The fruit of the Argan tree is small, and round. A thick peel covers the fleshy pulp that encases one to three Argan oil-rich kernels. Attempts to mechanize the extraction process have been unsuccessful, therefore to this day the oil is extracted by hand by Morrocan workers. Berber women often engage in this time consuming task. Argan kernels when roasted produce a culinary oil grade. Cosmetic Argan oil does not go through the roasting process of the kernels to avoid an excessively nutty scent.
The oil is high in antioxidants and vitamins A and D. I use a lot of hair color and often feel that my hair is depleted of it's nutrients. A weekly dime sized drop of Argan oil is the antidote to these problems. It prevents breakage and promotes smooth, moisturized hair. The antioxidants slow down the negative effects that breakage and damage can have.

About Rhada Beauty
Growing up in an Indian home in South-East Asia (Singapore), I (Rebekah Letch, Co-Founder of Radha Beauty) was constantly bathed in oils. Oil baths were part of my regime growing up. As a kid, my mother would adorn my hair and skin with different oils and create natural mixtures using spices and oils from turmeric, coconut, argan, lavender, peppermint etc which left my skin insanely soft, supple, blemish free and radiant. I would always get compliments on how healthy and radiant my long hair and skin were. Over the next 10 years, I worked with some of the world's best makeup artists as a professional ballet dancer and model. However, I noticed that after each session, my face would either break out, or get really dry and flaky. The more I learned about the toxic chemicals in most cosmetics, the more I wondered: did beauty have to be bad for us?
I couldn't accept that. I wanted cosmetics that embodied luxury and conscience -- cosmetics that were sexy and fun, high quality and organic, effective and good for Mother Earth.
In 2014, I started Radha Beauty a 100% pure & natural oils line and a natural skincare line. We combine high performance with natural and healthy ingredients and partner with earth-loving, women-empowering organizations, use Eco-friendly packaging, and we never stop striving to improve our products and our impact on the world. Radha Beauty embellishes beauty with the earth’s most natural oils and our natural skin care line. Our products are Cruelty Free and Not Tested on Animals. We believe that beauty does not have to be bad for us, as in our industry today, harsh chemicals are used in most beauty products. Our professional-level performance and luxe feel beauty line embodies luxury and conscience using high quality and organic ingredients which are effective and good for Mother Earth.
