The Argan oil used in Garnier products comes from a sustainable sourcing, near Tioute. Since 2008, a partnership has been developed with the supplier BASF and the local NGO Yamana to ensure cooperatives a fair return with fair price and capacity enhancement, through the sustainable use of natural resources.
Yamana has been working closely with the Targanine cooperatives which not only provide employment but also shared decision-making in order to help the empowerment of previously unemployed Berber women.
The program contributes to the overall economic and social development of the area. Women have increased their financial autonomy, reinforced their managing power and improved their social status. Their working conditions have been improved, as well as their access to healthcare and literacy.
