Kahina

Katharine Phillips L’Heureux started Kahina after a trip to Morocco, where she learned that argan oil — rich in vitamin E, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids — has great calming, hydrating, aging-beautifully effects. We’ve been fans of Kahina since the brand first launched in 2009, when facialist Julia March first told our founder about their organic argan oil (which we think is the very best on the market). 

Kahina was among the first brands in the US to package their products in the now-ubiquitous violet glass, and its founder was a pioneer in healthy beauty in every way — from her devotion to sustainability and social responsibility to her commitment to cleaner formulas. We’re proud to support this beloved, family-run company that’s been walking the walk for years.

Every item on our shelves was hand picked by our industry-veteran founder for its healthy ingredients, thoughtful development, and extraordinary results. You can't go wrong.

"Whoa. This is not your usual bath product. I was skeptical about how a sea soak could detoxify, until I found myself sweating in the tub and then feeling deeply relaxed, yet rejuvenated, afterwards. Whatever magic is happening here, I’ll take it."

Jill R.

"I ordered one on the day it came out. Then a couple weeks later, ordered another because I was already freaking out that something so good would sell out immediately and take a while to restock. It's the best all-around cleanser I've used."

Olympia T.

"The difference in my skin from April 2018 to now must be seen to be believed. Having never used oil on my face I wasn't sure what to expect with Dara's Oil, but I wouldn't return to a cream moisturizer for anything. This oil is light, penetrating, and not greasy."

Jill

"In all honesty, this serum has changed my COVID nurse skin. It instantly rehydrates, plumps tissue, decreases redness, increases elasticity, and leaves a subtle glow...friends and co-workers have positively commented on the change in my skin."

Karen W.

"I tried a lot of natural shampoo and finally found my holy grail. Bonus points, the scent of this shampoo is divine, so much so it enriches my shampooing experience."

Claire

"I hadn't gotten a good night's sleep in over two weeks and was at my wits' end. I kept waking up after 4-5 hours and unable to get back to sleep. Last night I took the sleep tonic and stress tonic with water before bed. I slept deeply and awoke feeling refreshed and full of energy!"

Andrew

"I absolutely love this serum. Every time I think about moving away from it, I keep coming back. I've tried countless other moisturizers (natural and not) and there is nothing that makes my sensitive rosacea-prone skin feel as hydrated, soothed and luxe as this one from Vintners."

Allison S.

"The BioRecept Total Lift Eclat serum works wonders on me. I may have described the effect to someone as 'It's like magical unicorns were nuzzling pixie dust into my face overnight.'"
