Moroccan khol is an eye make-up product made from natural ingredients. The use of khol is very popular in Morocco, although its use is also widespread in Arab countries and India.
Its origins date back to the Bronze Age (3500 B.C.), when it was already used against various eye ailments and to darken the eyelids as protection from sunlight, as well as in Ancient Egypt both to beautify the face and for its bactericidal properties.
This Moroccan makeup is a great choice because it has medicinal properties and prevents possible infections and eye irritations, in addition to moisturize and protect against external agents such as wind, sun.
Today Moroccan khol usually has a base of organic carbon, soot from nuts or olive stones to which is added a mixture of herbs and spices.
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MOROCCAN KHOL AND KAJAL
Moroccan Khol: it is a dry powder that can go from dark grey tones to intense black. It is applied with a thin rod of plastic, glass or wood, depending on the brand you choose.
Moroccan Kajal: its composition is the same as khol but vegetable oils and/or butters are added to obtain a paste that can be applied with a brush. We can also find it in the form of stick or bar to make it easy and convenient to apply.
The effect of Khol and Kajal is an irresistibly deep and lasting look. In the Arab world they are considered an essential element for seduction. It highlights the whiteness of the eyes, gives power, depth and mystery to the look.
