Committed to providing a healing, educational journey for all living creatures, Ian is the perfect celebrity for Josie's 2013 campaign. The Ian Somerhalder Foundation (ISF) believes in the interconnectedness of all living things. By collaborating with other like-minded organizations, the foundation channels its efforts into transforming our planet for the better. ISF focuses on initiatives that preserve natural habitats, promote "greener" technologies, and protect our animal population.

With the help of friends like Ian who want to better our world, Josie is inviting each of her customers to be model citizens: Ten percent of the purchase price of every limited-edition set will be donated to the Ian Somerhalder Foundation.

The limited-edition collection contains a trio of Argan-infused bestsellers, scented with intoxicating Honey-Chamomile-Lavender oils and enhanced with a radiant, luminescent shimmer:

  • 100% Pure Argan Oil + Radiance: A multi-purpose favorite, this shimmering luxe oil can be used as an ultra-nourishing moisturizer for the face, a conditioning treatment for split ends, or an all over body hydrator.
  • Argan Oil Hair Serum + Radiance: An ultra-replenishing treatment, this innovative, heat-protective serum instantly smoothes and repairs hair while also fighting frizz for long-lasting softness and radiant shine.
  • Whipped Argan Oil Illuminizing Body Butter: This velvety body butter soothes irritated, itchy patches, leaving behind touch-ably soft skin from head to toe. It offers intense hydration, delivering essential antioxidants and a hint of shimmer for supple, smooth, and radiant skin.
