This article will enlighten you on some of the key elements from Moroccan culture and agriculture; on their origins, their benefits, and their uses.

Nowadays, the most attractive cosmetic trends are those that pay homage to the beauty secrets of our ancestors, from different regions of the Kingdom. There is a strong and growing consumer interest in natural cosmetics, a strength on which it would be interesting to capitalize.

Moreover, the key element that you choose for your ranges and products will add value to your brand, and will serve as a tool for differentiation in the market. In the international field of cosmetics, each of these elements has an International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients, or INCI. It helps distinguish each of them and identify compounds that can cause allergies. It would therefore be useful to mention it on the packaging of each of your products.
