READ Founded in 2006, the cooperative Takarkourte specializes in beauty and cosmetics products based on argan oil, the main ingredient in Moroccan beauty.
Located in Tahannaout, in the vicinity of Marrakech, this women's cooperative develops various products: cosmetic oil, lotion, cream, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and more. The quality of the raw material is a priority for Takarkourte, since it uses an argan oil base that is organic and extracted in the traditional way, without the addition of chemicals. Takarkourte also has a food range consisting of argan oil for cooking, amlou and flavoured honey.
