PEOPLE AND IMPACT
We’re deeply committed to sustainability and fair trade. As a values-based brand, environmental and social impact are at the heart of all we do. Ethical skincare and homegoods are the future.
AZARAN products have a beneficial social impact and make a difference in the lives of Moroccan people and communities. People matter, and every decision we make reflects that.
We form long-term, meaningful and fair partnerships with local artisans and farmers in different regions of Morocco to source all products.
FAIR TRADE COMMITMENT
Many of our products have Fair Trade For Life certification, and all of our partners are treated and paid fairly. We help collective social and environmental projects in Morocco.
NO MIDDLE PERSON
AZARAN works directly with artisans to ensure we understand and are able to meet the needs of our suppliers. Azaran products directly support Moroccan artisans and farmers.
We support and source from Amazigh women in Morocco.
We partner with women-led co-operatives to source material, and contribute to a Moroccan women’s economic development fund.
SUPPORTING SMALL FARMERS
With the popularization of argan oil, it is important that we continue to support small farmers. Our oils are sourced from small landholders in Morocco.
We’re proud to live and share Moroccan culture. As Moroccan goods become commercialized, we ensure and advocate for authenticity and accountability to Moroccan people and culture.
We choose partners who share our values. When engaging partners and suppliers, we look at their social impact, aiming to expand our influence through a network of sustainable partnerships.
Our social impact programs are a vital part of our business. All decisions and products are designed with people and fair trade in mind.
PLANET AND SUSTAINABILITY
We also believe in caring for the earth through pure and environmentally conscious products. Quality small-batch goods, natural ingredients and using fewer resources help protect the planet and support a better future for us all.
We ensure the natural resources we source are sustainable. For example, our argan oil is sourced from a UNESCO biosphere reserve, which ensures the protection and reforestation of argan trees.
Our products are packaged using the most sustainable methods. Each product page contains more detail on sustainability.
AZARAN customers can recycle their end-of-life skin and hair care bottles for 20% off their next order. Email email@example.com to return your bottles and receive your discount once you have two empty full-size bottles.
Organic products are good for you and good for the earth. Our ingredients are pure and natural, and we’re EcoCert Organic certified.
REDUCED CARBON FOOTPRINT
Thanks to life cycle analysis, we know the largest portion of our carbon footprint is transportation. We work with Moroccan argan oil farmers and non-profits to plant trees to offset this footprint.
Almost 90% of the rural economy in the argan region depends on the argan agroforestry system. Argan trees have also guarded Morocco against the expanding desert for centuries, protecting water reserves and keeping soil alive. By replanting argan trees, we support natural Moroccan ecosystems, which are deeply tied to Moroccan culture and economic welfare.
