We love working alongside businesses who are focused on more than just making a profit and capturing the story of their product through our lens.

Akhal Beauty is one such company.

Based in Australia, this skincare company sells products whose materials are sourced from Morocco, such as Argan oil and Prickly Pear oil.  

As a company they are committed to eco-friendly and cruelty-free organic skincare with zero waste. More than that, they are having a social impact. For every product sold they donate one dollar to their charity partner, Education for All (EFA). Education for All focuses on making it possible for girls from the rural High Atlas Mountains of Morocco to finish their education. You can find out more about EFA here.

We traveled with the company’s founder, Myriam Baissa to the women’s cooperative where the Argan kernels and prickly pears are produced and harvested for Akhals organic products. There we photographed the process – from Argan tree to the women sorting the Argan kernels to the machines that coldpress the oil.

It was a pleasure photographing a company committed to providing a quality product while also focusing on its environmental and social impact.
