Organic Argan Oil


Organic Argan Oil

Argania spinosa kernel oil

Produced from the kernels of the argan tree endemic to Morocco and is valued for its nutritive, cosmetic and numerous medicinal properties.  Moroccan Berber community refer to the argan tree as the “tree of life”

Argan Oil is considered a luxury (and, therefore, expensive) oil because it has a limited supply which needs to meet a growing worldwide demand, arising from a growing knowledge of the tremendous benefits associated with it.  It is one of Africa’s best kept secrets and treasures and one of the rarest and most expensive oils in the world.  Berber women have used Argan Oil for centuries to protect and nourish their skin, hair and nails from the harsh conditions in which they live

Argan Oil has extremely high levels of vitamin E and 80% fatty acids which, is believed, make it perfect for healing many skin ailments as well as protecting against premature aging caused by oxidation.  The active substances, ‘triterpenoids’, that occur in this oil are reported to offer amazing skin protection benefits such as tissue healing (scars), anti-inflammatory, sun-protective, and disinfectant properties

It is considered an effective anti-aging oil due to properties such as high levels of vitamin E and saponins (skin-softening agents).  In addition to cooling and soothing inflammation, Argan Oil is reputed to help reduce wrinkles by restoring the skin’s hydro-lipid layer.  It is further used to soothe skin ailments such as chickenpox, acne, psoriasis, and dry eczema.  And may be applied to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy

American actress, model and singer, Eva Mendes, is reported to have said that “Argan oil from Morocco is my total skin secret..... It’s spectacular!”  It is also a favourite with some of the catwalk’s hottest hairstylists including Orlando Pita
