We’ve long been fans of model Josie Maran’s eco-chic skincare and makeup line, especially her pure argan oil products. I’m obsessed with the extra moisturizing oil, so I was thrilled when I had the chance to meet Maran last week and find out about her new limited edition argan oil set, which launched on Tuesday. The collection of three oils, called Model Citizen, features packaging designed by Maran and fellow models, Petra Nemcova and Angela Lindvall.

In addition to looking really cute, 10% of sales from each bottle goes to the charity of each model’s choice. Of the initiative, Maran said, “I really wanted to show that being beautiful isn’t just about a pretty face. I wanted to inspire girls and women to go out there and do something in their communities, and to know that that’s actually true beauty.” Maran’s charity of choice is Women for Women International, an organization that distributes aid, microloans, and other services to women survivors of war and conflict. A longtime admirer of the charity, Maran said she chose them because “the money really goes to change the world. For women living through torture or war, it gives them the tools to restart.” Proceeds from Nemcova’s bottles will go to her charity, Happy Hearts Fund, which rebuilds schools in areas affected by natural disasters. Lindvall is supporting Healthy Child Healthy World, which educates parents about how to protect children from environmental health risks. The limited edition collection is now available on Sephora.com for $48.
