What is Argan oil?

Organic Argan oil is extracted from the kernals of Argan fruit. Morroco is an almost exclusive home to Argan fruit, it originates from the south western region. With many scientific accreditations, Argan oil has coined the name “Liquid Gold”. It is rich in vitamin E and fatty acids giving it many scientifically proven benefits for your hair, skin and nails.

Typically, Argan oil is produced in two grades – “Edible” or “Cosmetic” [1]. The difference is in the extraction process. “Edible” is extracted from roasted, whilst the “cosmetic” is from unroasted kernels. In conjunction to preserving the fatty acids, the unroasted kernels have much higher Vitamin E levels.

With this in mind, it’s no surprise that Moroccans have been using Argan oil for many centuries! They use it to treat everything, from fine lines and wrinkles to dry skin and eczema.

Our top 5 organic Argan oil benefits:

1. The Oil Warrior: many people believe that using an oil to treat already oily skin is a beauty faux pas. However, did you know that Argan oil has anti-sebum effects? A study on twenty 17-50 year olds with oily facial skin revealed that a daily application of an Argan oil-containing cream for 4 weeks showed reduced greasiness and improved appearance of oily facial skin [2]

Tip: Warm a few drops of your organic Argan oil between your hands and lightly press onto your face. Do this gently until it’s fully absorbed into your skin.

2. The Youth Elixir: the high levels of antioxidants help the skin to maintain a healthy level of collagen; boosting elasticity and minimising the appearance of fine lines and sun damage.

Tip: Add 1-2 drops of your organic Argan oil to your foundation for healthy, glowing skin.

3. The Replenisher: Organic Argan oil is easy to absorb and non-greasy which makes it a great moisturiser. The high concentration of Vitamin E encourages skin repair with it’s healing properties. People with Eczema will particulary benefit from this additional boost of healing vitamins.

Tip: Add a few drops of your organic Argan oil to your body moisturiser for soft, hydrated skin.

4. The Wound Healer: Many of us have suffered from stretch marks and unwanted scars. Argan oil offers natural nutrients that the body can readily absorb and encourages healthy skin cell growth.

Tip: Add a few drops of your organic Argan oil to your body moisturiser for soft, hydrated skin.

5. The Hair Restorer: Organic Argan oil works hard to restore your hair’s healthy look. The Vitamin E and fatty acids protect the hair and scalp from heat damage caused by styling tools. For instance, Argan oil’s molecules are smaller than other oils making it easier to penetrate hair cuticles. This leads to softer, more manageable hair with less dryness and tangles.

Tip: Firstly of all, work a generous amount of Argan oil into your hair and scalp. Next, let it soak in overnight and wash it out in the morning. Repeat every 2-4 weeks on how much hydration your hair and scalp need.
….And just an extra tip for the road!: Add a few drops of Argan oil onto damp hair as a natural replacement to your heat protect, you should do this every time you apply heat to your hair.

The Bottom Line
