Buy this limited-edition Natural Radiance trio for a cool $54 and help provide clean water to Berber women in Morocco.
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 2011, 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.
