Why did we chooseArgan oil

Referred to as "Liquid Gold" by Moroccans themselves. This oil is a plant oil extract from the Argania spinosa tree, a tree that is endemic in Morocco. It is constantly extracted and used because of its cosmetic and nutritive value. It also claims to have a lot of medicinal properties. This amazing oil contains some major vitamins and minerals essential for one’s health. It is known to have Vitamin C and E which are great antioxidants for the body thus it can counteract the effects of aging. The oil contains rare plant sterols (schottenol and spinasterol), not found in other oils. It is believed that these phytosterols are unique in their combination and that there are no other oils with a comparable phytosterol composition.

Argan is considered an effective anti-aging oil due to properties such as the high levels of vitamin E/tocopherols (anti-oxidants help neutralize free radical damage, which is important for skin exposed to polluted Western environments) and saponins (skin-softening agents). Besides cooling and soothing inflammation, it is also reputed to help reduce wrinkles by restoring the skin`s hydro-lipid layer. Apply to any area of the body to relieve dryness, itchiness, inflammation or any other skin, hair or nail ailment.

Bridget Mclean

Owner of K-Bree, Bridget Mclean was born and raised in Alberta, Canada. During her first visit to Morocco, Bridget was introduced to Argan oil while traveling to the south of Morocco, where Argania spinosa trees grow abundantly. After falling in love with this all natural oil and returning home with a small supply which she herself help hand press with other local woman, Bridget's supply starting to become low. After searching endlessly for a quality affordable Argan oil, disappointment set in. There was nothing comparable to what she had brought back from Morocco and anything somewhat close was outrageously expensive. While complaining to her husband Zakaria about this problem, Zakaria and Bridget decided to find a way to provide others with this amazing oil at reasonable prices and K-Bree was born. Currently in Calgary, Alberta Bridget is receiving the imports of K-Bree's products and preparing it for distribution to you.

Zakaria Bakkal

Co-Owner of K-Bree, he was born and raised in Casablanca, Morocco. Zakaria Bakkal grew up experiencing the benefits first hand of using both the cosmetic and edible Argan oil. When realizing how limited the options were for purchasing 100 percent Pure Moroccan Argan oil outside of Morocco and knowing the amazing results obtained from using this natural resource. He teamed up with Bridget his wife and together they decided to offer this incredible natural product to you, in its purest form and at affordable prices! Currently in Morocco Zakaria is working hard to ensure the best supply of the fruit is readily available for K-Bree to produce. He over sees every step of the processing of our oil, from the harvesting of the fruit, to the filtering of the oil and securing the shipment to Canada.

how do we get our oil

Since the idea began, Zakaria and Bridget have travelled to many locations across Southern Morocco. Visiting the farms learning and experiencing first hand the entire process in producing the oil. By educating ourselves on the various problems associated with the sourcing of our seeds through local woman co-ops we eventually decided against purchasing through them, as the underlying situation within the co-ops, goes against what we stand for, as a socialy responsible company. This decision was best suited for our company and the values we stand by. At K-BREE we use the cold press method for producing our oil.
