A new range of ethical skincare products has harnessed the powers of Moroccan argan oil - and it will do as much for your soul as it will for your skin.
THE SUNDAY TIMES
“Celui-ci qui finance l’ensemble des machines, et apporte sa caution financière sans contrepartie exige cependant des autorités locales une chose : le respect absolu de l’indépendance des femmes et leur libre disposition des fruits de leur travail.”
La promesse de revenus complémentaires et les prises de position simultanées du Roi visant à promouvoir le statut de la femme aident considérablement à la réussite du projet. Mais la Maison de l’Argan va aller plus loin encore afin d’affirmer sa promesse : elle ne demande en dehors de la fourniture d’une huile de qualité irréprochable aucune exclusivité, et décide spontanément de payer celle-ci un prix accru.
La beauté en mouvement :
ar457® was created by the Maison de l'Argan in 2003. The cosmetics group, already a pioneer in Argan, wanted to concentrate all of its know-how in a resolutely premium brand, and to concentrate all of the powers of Argan oil with innovative ingredients in uncompromising products.
ar457 stands for ar, Argan, 4 for 4 tocopherols, 5 for 5 phytosterols and 7 for the 7 biomolecules that complete its composition.
2004. George V Four Seasons
ar457 is chosen by the therapists of the Spa of the George V Four Seasons Hotel. The adventure continues today with a team of formidable professionals who are as experienced as they are benevolent.
Very soon after its revelation to the general public, ar457 joined the shelves of Sephora's flagship store alongside the most prestigious French brands.
Simultaneous launch of ar457 and SpaceNK in New York
After a successful launch in the UK through the SpaceNK chain of perfumeries named after its creator Nicky Kinnaird, ar457® was officially launched in the United States in June 2007 as part of the company's expansion into the US.
ar457 will support the development of SpaceNK in Boston, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
