Katima’A has strived to design the most beautiful and efficient skincare so that people
worldwide can benefit from this rare beauty treasure.
Argan, the rarest oil in the world
Amongst all its natural treasures, Morocco shelters the essence of Berber women’s beauty.
There, at the heart of a unique forest surviving the never ending summer, the fruits of the
Argan tree have revealed a precious oil gifted with outstanding beauty promoting proper-
ties: Argan oil.
Coming from the South West of Morocco, where the climate is particular, the Argan tree
is a unique phenomenon, having never produced fruits anywhere else in the world other
than in its native region. The Argan forest, once threatened by extinction, has stood as the
last rampart against the desert’s expansion for millenaries, until in 1999 it was classified as
a world biosphere by UNESCO.
Wanting to be part of preserving such a precious and natural inheritance, LA MAISON DE
L’ARGAN chose to put Argan oil at the forefront by making it the key active ingredient of its
entire skincare line: Katima’A.
La Maison de l’Argan
From the beginning, LA MAISON DE L’ARGAN has committed itself to the Argan cause by
creating and supporting feminine cooperatives in Morocco, thus, protecting a 800 000 ha
Argan tree forest. Truly respectful of the millenary and traditional production “savoir-faire”,
LA MAISON DE L’ARGAN has developed unique patented extraction processes in order to
increase the oil quality whilst contributing to the timelessness of a nature miracle.
To achieve the best Argan oil quality, LA MAISON DE L’ARGAN has set rigorous quality
controls at every fabrication step, from the selection of Argan Nuts from the tree, to
the oil extraction. Rigorously selected, the fruits of Argan undergo specific laboratory
manufacturing processes to reach an incomparable quality whilst preserving its cosmetic
Katima’A formulas are designed in their own laboratory in France using a unique procedure
that preserves all the qualities of the ingredients involved. This patented process has been
created and perfected by their pharmacists. The fabrication method uses limited energy,
water consumption as well as limited production waste. In this way it consumes 50 times
less energy than the normal hot temperature manufacturing process commonly used by
the millenary Beauty Elixir
This natural golden fluid, Argan oil, stands as one of the best cosmetic dis-
coveries of the century. An active ingredient, that has long been the se-
cret guardian of Berber women’s beauty, is now unveiling its secrets to the
Extremely rich in unsaturated fatty acids and gifted with a high percenta-
ge of linoleic acids, Argan oil is able to delay the skin ageing process in an
unprecedented way. Containing the highest proportion of tocopherols of
any oil in the world, (three times higher than olive oil), Argan has outstan-
ding antioxidant and anti free radicals properties; crucial in the prevention
of wrinkles and fine lines. Ensuring a global anti-ageing action, Argan oil sti-
mulates the regeneration of skin cells and actively preserves the hydro lipid
layer; thus favouring the key factors to a firm, soft and radiant skin.
the meaning behind the name
Katima’A literally means “a woman who carries a secret”. This has been kept at the very
essence of the range, with delicate fragrances, textures and formulas whose ingredients
are found throughout the world. Katima’A redefines femininity and glamour as it was
known, a luxury cosmetic line where synergies and concentrations of active ingredients are
More than a cosmetic, Katima’A is a fusion of many influences where each product comes
to be a unique work of art, unveiling the first skincare line where both efficiency and ethical
concerns work in harmony.
Katima’A is the fulfillment of a dream to blend history and nature with performance and
luxury; an original creation in which art and design are mixed with generous and rich
formulas. Katima’A stands as the symbol of a new cosmetic era where rare active ingredients
act in synergy to provide the skin with unparalleled anti-ageing prevention and repair.
Since the beginning, quality and efficiency have been amongst LA MAISON DE L’ARGAN’s
most important concerns.
To enhance the global anti-ageing action of Argan oil and convey specific actions to every
product of the line, revolutionary active ingredients coming from all around the world are
selected and incorporated within the formulas. From Padina Pavonica to rare algae extracts,
Aloe Vera, Chitosan succinamide, Tapioca, Anise extract, Quercus Robur (oak extract).
behind the scene
“How can one freeze a movement, a curve or even density whilst preserving
its might? The movement exists only during the time you make it; a curve
finds its place in a definite space in the immediacy. Might is situated between
the beginning and the end. Strength is in its spontaneity, its timelessness.
The ephemeral doesn’t give you a thing to possess but only to keep a trace
of it. Something suspended in the time”.
Dimitri Audren, Artist
These words from Dimitri Audren, the artist who contributed to Katima’A’s unique
design, are the reflection of Katima’A’s philosophy, a line in which products are
the fruit of a passionate and audacious plea for freedom and constant innovation.
