International makeup artist Munemi lists some of the fashion world’s most celebrated names among her clients, such as Vogue, ELLE and Harper’s Bazaar. During a brief illness, Munemi discovered the powerful benefits of natural ingredients in food as well as personal care and beauty products and embarked upon a journey to unite the worlds of fashion and sustainability.
A trip to the deserts of Morocco unveiled the secrets of the Prickly Pear cactus, whose seeds yield an exquisite oil that has been used for centuries to counteract the effects of sun and aging. The Berbers, the indigenous people who had settled the lands long before the Arab conquest in the 7th century, called the exotic fruit of the cactus, “Aknari”. Since the first fruits of the Prickly Pear rolled up onto the sands of Morocco’s coastline from the Canary Islands, they have become an essential element of the local Berber economy, especially for the cooperatives run by women.
MUN has partnered with these cooperatives to supply the raw ingredients for MUN's organic products. As a tribute to the Berber women who share their passion for sustainability and green development, MUN has chosen “Aknari” as the name for their wonderful, anti-aging Brightening Youth Serum. Just a few drops daily will restore and revitalize your complexion!
