- OUR COMMITMENTS
The argan oil used in René Furterer hair care products comes from a partnership with a union of cooperatives that employ Moroccan women. A sustainable commitment that contributes to the support of Berber women by ensuring them sustainable resources and also helping to safeguard their skills. An ethical and responsible network that cultivates and harvests a high quality argan oil. A key ingredient in cosmetics, argan oil is bursting with vitamins and antioxidants. Its moisturizing and nourishing properties make it dry and curly hair's best friend. It also has a stimulating and revitalizing effect on the scalp that encourages hair growth. Argan oil is a key ingredient in the Karinga range, dedicated to curly and coily hair.
Argan oil comes from the fruit of the argan tree, a legendary tree that grows on the other side of the Mediterranean, in Morocco. More specifically, it grows on the Moroccan High Atlas, as well as in the semi-desert areas of the country, from Safi in the North to the furthest reaches of the Sahara in the South. It is part of the Sapotaceae family, scientific name Argania spinosa. Argan oil is extracted from the kernels of the fruit of the argan tree, and has been for thousands of years. Once turned into oil, it is particularly recognizable by its golden or honey color. Argan oil has always been used by Berber women for its miraculous properties, both on hair and skin. Natural cosmetic product and symbolic of the country, the argan tree and argan oil are part of both Morocco’s and humanity’s cultural heritage.
Argan oil has many beneficial properties for the body, so much so that it’s nicknamed "liquid gold". Due to its richness in antioxidants, specifically essential fatty acids such as omega-6 and tocopherols (Vitamin E), argan oil helps to prevent skin dryness and repair the skin barrier. It has protective, nourishing, hydrating and regenerating properties for hair. In fact, argan oil is particularly recommended for dry and dull hair, to repair the hydrolipidic film. It is a real miracle treatment for brittle and split hair. Throughout the year, our hair is weakened by our external environment and damaged by heat-styling tools such as hairdryers or straighteners. Argan oil is particularly adept at protecting hair from this exposure which often results in severe damage. Apply from the mids to the ends of your hair. Argan oil repairs damaged hair fiber with its strong moisturizing power.
It helps to protect and strengthen the hair and scalp when used as a mask, thus preventing breakage. Argan is the perfect oil for long, dry and curly hair. It helps to make hair stronger and silkier with its nourishing and revitalizing properties.
In addition to its moisturizing and nourishing properties, argan oil has revitalizing properties that encourage hair growth. It acts directly on the scalp and strengthens the hair fiber to help stimulate hair growth.
We recommend applying argan oil-infused hair care directly on the roots and massaging delicately into the scalp. Argan oil penetrates the scalp and acts directly on the hair bulb. To increase the benefits, you can combine this treatment with a scalp massage to activate blood microcirculation and boost keratin production. With argan oil, hair is full of vitality and grows faster and stronger.
Argan oil is at the heart of our Karinga line of products, which are custom-made for coily and curly hair in need of moisture. This type of hair is naturally very dry, fragile and vulnerable. This is why it requires specially suited products. The shampoos, styling creams and masks in the Karinga range enriched with argan oil have strong restructuring, protective and moisturizing properties. The essential fatty acids and antioxidants present in argan oil rehydrate curly and coily hair to restore shine and softness. Argan oil also helps with detangling of curly hair. The oil has an enveloping effect that coats and softens the hair fiber. Hair is supple, shiny, and easy to detangle and style.
The natural richness, scent and smoothness of argan oil make it a deeply sensory ingredient. Our argan oil-based products are not only moisturizing and repairing for the hair but they also have strong revitalizing powers.
