BEHIND THE BRAND
Marrakesh began as a small family business, operated by the Wachs family out of their home office, and has now evolved into an internationally recognized company which consumers trust to deliver high-end beauty products.
In 1996, Kevin and Mare Wachs started creating quality natural personal care products in their garage in Chatsworth, CA. Earthly body, the manufacturer of Marrakesh Hair Care is a respected family owned company. As the demand grew larger for their products, Kevin and Mare expanded their brand to not only include skin care but hair care as well.
In July 2013, they moved to a 50,000 square foot, solar powered facility in Chatsworth, CA.
Marrakesh Hair Care cares about the environment, the people, and doing the right thing always! As a result, Marrakesh hair care products are made with the highest quality natural ingredients. We leave the harsh, damaging ingredients out to give you gorgeous, healthy looking hair.
All products feature Argan & Hemp Oil Therapy to significantly improve the look and feel of hair.
Marrakesh Oil Hair Styling Elixir is one of the most sought after Argan Oil products on the market today, and the only hair product formulated with Argan and Hemp Seed Oil for added strength, protection, and shine.
We source our oil from women-led co-ops
Marrakesh’s Argan Oil comes exclusively from women-led Argan cooperatives in Morocco. Certainly, these co-ops not only produce sustainable Argan Oil, but it also helps empower the country’s female work force. Marrakesh Hair Care was able to see first hand how the Argan Oil is made and to speak to these women-led organizations on their expedition to Morocco.
For this reason, when Marrakesh Hair Care moved to their new facility and chose to install solar panels, they selected the most qualified all-woman firm to efficiently lead their solar-power transformation.
Caring for our environment
“The commitment to our planet’s sustainability has long been crucial to our brand. We are cruelty-free certified by PETA and Leaping Bunny. Our products do not include dyes, petroleum, parabens, or sulfates. Furthermore, we have transformed our headquarters into a fully solar-powered facility.
We believe that all aspects of our organization must reflect eco-friendly values” says Co-founder and President, Kevin Wachs. Every one of our products are proudly made in the U.S.A.
