Argan: The gold of the desert

Argan Oil

A 3,500-year-old beauty secret is revealed, giving us the most precious and desirable ingredient in cosmetics.

Sourced from the kernels of argan trees (Argania Spinosa L.) in Morocco, argan oil is an extremely versatile ingredient. Commonly used in food and cosmetics, argan oil is quickly gaining ground worldwide as a skin care staple. At once nourishing, moisturizing, and soothing, argan oil is gentle enough for all skin types while providing some serious anti-aging benefits.

In this installment of our Ingredient Spotlight series, we’ll dive into the argan oil benefits in skin care and what makes it so nourishing.

Great Moisturizer

Argan oil is naturally very moisturizing and non-clogging. This means that it can provide your skin with the moisture it needs without clogging your pores with unnecessary amounts of oil. Argan oil very closely resembles the oil your skin naturally produces. Therefore, your skin will accept and absorb it best.

For All Skin Types

Whether you have oily skin, dry skin, or a combination of both, argan is the oil for you. Most facial cleansers and moisturizers are too harsh for skin and ultimately strip your face of its natural sebum, forcing skin to overproduce oil to compensate for the loss. By applying argan oil to the skin, you are balancing your natural oil production levels.

Excellent Remedy for Acne

Argan oil is an excellent remedy for acne breakouts. It’s high in linoleic acid content, making it perfect for reducing inflammation and redness when healing acne. What is linoleic acid you ask? Linoleic acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid that is part of the omega 6 fatty acids. This means that linoleic acid helps keep your hair and skin moisturized.

Great for Anti-Aging

Argan is packed with fatty acids and antioxidants, which makes it an excellent product to promote elasticity in your skin. This oil also naturally carries Vitamin E and A, which contribute to the anti-aging process. When used regularly, argan can help reduce the production and depth of wrinkles, while also fading age spots and reinforcing the regenerative properties of healthy skin cells.

Skin Healing Properties

Due to its rich natural formula, argan is deeply moisturizing and restorative to your skin and face. It can help reduce inflammation and heal wounds, creating a preventative remedy for scarring. Both women and men can benefit from argan’s ability to nourish and heal the skin. It can heal and moisturize a dry scalp, soften a scruffy beard, and double as a soothing post-shave product.
