What is Argan Oil

Argan Oil is the “liquid gold” oil of the nut from the Argan tree.  It is extremely rare and only produced in a specific UNESCO protected region of Morocco.  Berber women hand-extract the oil in fair-trade cooperatives.  The process is tedious but the outcome is magnificent.  Argan Oil is one of the finest topical treatments for skin and hair as it restores radiance, strength and a youthful-like appearance.

Argan Oil, sometimes called Moroccan oil, is a phenomenal beauty elixir.  Unlike many skin, hair and beauty products, Argan Oil is 100% pure and direct from nature.  The rich golden oil has powerful age-defying properties derived from a range of antioxidants such as phenols, catechins, epicatechins, carotenes and squalene.  It is also bursting with plant sterols, Vitamin E and essential fatty acids including Omega-3, Omega-6, palmitic, stearic, linolenic, linoleic, and oleic fatty acids. 

Antioxidants and essential fatty acids found in Argan oil are quite possibly the perfect natural formula for beautiful skin.  Ideal for almost every skin type and skin condition, Argan Oil is the must-have product for glowing, youthful-looking skin.  It contains antimicrobials that gently clear away bacteria that cause blemishes and swelling.  It also rebalances the pH level of skin, which helps shield skin from sun damage. 

As a daily moisturizer, Argan Oil penetrates deeply to repair and rejuvenate dry or oily skin for a smoother texture and brighter appearance.  As nutrients reach deep into the epidermis, Argan Oil stimulates regeneration of skin cells which often slows with age.  Argan Oil encourages the production of collagen and elastin necessary for skin to remain firm, toned and wrinkle-free.  It can reduce itchiness, flakiness and irritation from dry skin, even reversing skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.  For oily skin, Argan Oil regulates natural sebum oil production to decrease incidence of acne and prevent scarring.  Argan Oil can be applied directly to skin or added to moisturizers, toners and cosmetics to enhance their nutritional value.

If you think the skin-healing properties of Argan Oil are amazing, just wait until you learn what it can do for your hair.  Much like skin, hair becomes dull, dry and tired-looking with age.  Argan oil helps repair heat, sun and chemically damaged hair by deeply moisturizing from root to tip.  A few drops of Argan Oil can nourish the scalp and relieve flakiness caused by dandruff.  It is often recommended as a leave-in overnight conditioner for intense hydration.  It can also be used as a styling product to tame wild strands, smooth course hair and add luster.

Beyond the face and hair, Argan Oil can be used for the entire body to relieve dry skin or manage oily patches.  It can be applied directly to the affected areas, blended with body gels or moisturizers or added to a warm bath for total body hydration.  Argan Oil is known to aid in the healing process of skin wounds and scars, and may even reduce stretch marks from pregnancy.  Dry cuticles and cracked nails can benefit from a drop of Argan Oil as well.
