100% Natural Soaps Contribute to Sustainable Development of Afghanistan

Arghand is a skincare line of products that transforms the lush and exotic fruits and herbs grown in southern Afghanistan into luxury bath and body products, which stabilizes and preserves the premium products for export, to ensure sustainable economic development in the war-torn country.

Founded by Sarah Chayes who covered the fall of the Taliban for National Public Radio, Arghand Trust is a US non-profit on a mission to create economic opportunities for Afghan  men and women while growing the market for agricultural crops other than opium poppy. Ingredients used in the company’s natural soaps and moisturizers include  sweet and wild almonds, anise, pomegranate and wild pistachios, and through cold-press or steam distillation of these hand-harvested plants, unique oil blends are showcased.

All Arghand products are made of 100% whole plant ingredients from raw materials proven over centuries to protect and restore skin, and contain vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids that nourish and rejuvenate.

Through their skincare line, Arghand is creating a sustainable economic alternative to opium production and reinvesting all profits into the Arghand Cooperative in Kandahar to support equally men and women regardless of ethnicity or tribal affiliation. The company through their packaging and solar powered workshop also have a strong commitment to protecting the environment.
