Ingredients: 100% Pure Tunisian Green Clay (pH-neutral 7.24; hypoallergenic)
It took us over a decade to trace a clay with this chemical composition. It is not a typical clay. Naturally pH-neutral and not reactive even for most sensitive skin, Katari Argil has extreme pulling power for drawing out impurities, black heads and clearing skin of excess oils and acne. Its mineral composition is packed with minerals that work on a cellular level to help regenerate skin and balance it out whether it is dry or oily.
Argil works well on all skin types. Nothing needs to be added except for warm water and the easiest is to use it for 5-7 minutes under steam while in the shower, rinsing it off last and following up with a moisturizer (Hoba is perfect for it).
Argil can be used as often as needed. If redness occurs, it is a normal (though rare) reaction and means that Argil is doing its job by improving blood circulation. It is not an allergic reaction.
Katari Argil can be stored in an air-tight container indefinitely. Temperature or light do not affect it. Argil will absorb smells and moisture out of the air if left uncapped. Please use Katari non-metal sustainable utensils or other non-metal utensils to avoid oxidation.
Ingredients: 100% EURO Organic Jojoba Plant Wax (aka jojoba oil)
When I say Katari Hoba | the purest jojoba oil has no comparison, your only way to believe it is to try it.
Hoba or jojoba oil has been a steady beauty staple in Europe for a long time. Why? It is simple, it is hypoallergenic, it does not clog pores (is non comedogenic) and it works on ANY skin, body and hair type.
Using Hoba, which is a carrier oil as your natural makeup cleanser is a perfect way to keep your skin healthy and smooth. And for acne-prone skin, Hoba is an incredible natural oil cleanser to help normalize skin oil production.
Katari Hoba is not an ordinary oil. We source it to each seed and work with the artisans in the Mediterranean who mastered the ancient and modern oil cold-pressing techniques and pride themselves on the most incredible quality. Our Hoba is 100% single-ingredient, pure and unrefined.
Daily Regimen with Katari Jojoba is very simple and feels clean and light -
Ingredients: 100% EURO Organic Certified Prickly Pear Cactus Seed Oil.
When Botox is not an option, there is actually a pretty good natural option we call Barie. It is a super rich oil filled with Omega-3, 6, 9 and 12 and all tocopherols and fatty acids, which make a very complex and powerful Vitamin E serum.
It is a hard process to make this oil and it takes millions of seeds and hundreds of hours to create just a quart. We suggest using Barie on fine wrinkles, on lashes and brows (to grow them), on decolete and neck and everywhere else where you need a lift, a boost and visibly more plump and smooth skin.
As a pro-tip, try using Barie on wet skin (spray some Geranium or Rose water) or apply it right after washing skin. Oil and water actually mix quite well together, allowing oils to seal the moisture in the skin better and spread. Best time to apply Barie is in the evening to allow this precious oil to do its job and not to shine on the face.
Ingredients: 100% Pure Vapor Distilled Tunisian Rose Water (rose petals + water)
Skin lift in one spray - that is Roseau. I am personally obsessed with it and don't leave for any trips long or short without a little bottle of this incredible toner. It is light, naturally fragrant, it has just the essence of rose petals distilled to most decadent perfection in its ingredient list.
It is perfect to set makeup, to shrink pores, to lift and tone skin and make you feel like a million bucks. The ladies who make Katari Roseau have done it for countless generations using the same ancient tedious process of vapor distillation. This is means there is no alcohol, no oil and only pure, naturally fragrant rose water drawn from the petals of freshly collected roses produced just one week in a year. It does not compare to anything else in how light and good it feels.
We recommend using your rose water within two years but it is really stable for a very very long time and it does not get affected by time, just like fine perfume.
Ingredients: 100% Pure Vapor Distilled Geranium Water (geranium plant + water)
All hydrosols (flower waters) are made different. Katari Geran is a single-ingredient moisturizing flower water made out of Geranium stems and leaves. It is not a mixture of geranium oil, water and alcohol, but a small batch vapor distilled artisanal flower water.
The process of distillation is taking the essense of geranium plants under high temperature steam and distills it drop by drop into a decadent naturally frangrant water without adding any other fragrance or oils. Is one of a kind moisturizer and anti-inflamatory, redness reducing hydrosol.
It is easy and effective to use on all skin types and is best to spray directly on the skin area that needs some care (after waxing, after peels, sunburn, any procedures that make skin angry and irritated, reducing inflammation related to hormonal imbalances and just simply to keep it moisturized. You cannot misuse or overuse it. Spray Geran directly onto skin for better penetration.
Flower water cannot be or should certified organic, as organics by definition contain carbon and water does not have any. Therefore, we use the purest water and the purest geranium plants grown in the Tunisian North and create the most concentrated flower hydrolat out there. Geranium water is naturally stable and can be used for many years, just as any fine perfume (produced in the same way Geran is).
The accessories set contains:
The age of plastic is gone. Instead we assembled handmade mixing accessories. Each is proudly made using thousand-year old techniques and some of these techniques are protected by UNESCO as ancient crafts. Read here more about our accessories and people who make them.
Apart of beauty and functionality, there is a reason we went out of our way to create a kit for mixing beauty products. Most clays contain metals and will oxidize when mixing in or with metal utensils. A lot of other products are reactive to other products and environments. You can have the best ingredients in the world and use them in a way that diminishes their effectiveness. We want our ingredients to outperform your expectations and offer our handmade accessories for mixing Katari or any other recipes at home.
Each kit contains a beautiful bowl made out of edible clay, a sustainably made mixing utensil our of hardy olive wood, a natural sea sponge for cleansing skin and a brush to apply a masque (brush is not handmade - on purpose).
