Argan oil for skin & Argan oil for face
The argan tree grows and survives in semi-desert conditions. The deep roots and small leaves allow the tree to withstand hot winds and lack of water. A nut with a unique oil profile is a result. Argan oil is extracted from these nuts. Moroccan women use argan oil for glowing skin and healthy hair. They use the oil to heal and protect their babies’ skin.
Argan oil has become a star ingredient in many beauty products in the recent years. But its benefits for skin have been known for hundreds of years, here is why.
Argan oil for skin
Argan, argania spinosa, oil helps improve elasticity and skin texture while soothing redness.
Argan oil is rich in phyto-nutrients: fatty acids and vitamin E, an antioxidant that neutralises free radicals, helps prevent collagen break down. It has a very light texture and is called liquid gold for its beautiful colour and skin rejuvenating properties. Due to its richness in skin nutrients it is equally beneficial for any skin type.
As non-comedogenic this oil is beneficial for acne prone skin.
Naturally, oily skin has a compromised skin barrier from a regimen of conventional skincare products containing hash chemicals. Damaged skin barrier is overcompensated by sebum over production which can clog pores and cause breakouts.
But argan oil can help break the vicious circle.
It contains vitamin E, that acts as an anti-inflammatory agent for inflamed skin as well as it helps your skin to balance sebum production, soothe irritation and alleviate breakouts. At the same time antioxidants help soothing skin dermatitis and lift scars.
Argan oil for face
Argan oil is very lightweight and skin loves it: it absorbs rather quickly leaving the skin with a natural lustre, not a shiny film. Oil works as a moisture protecting barrier so smooth it on a slightly wet skin to seal all the hydrating components.
Practically, it is a hydrating, nourishing, softening, acne-fighting, scar-fading lightweight miracle in a bottle.
Transformative power of argan oil
It is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants helping to hydrate and soften the skin. Its revitalising power comes from the combination of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and vitamin E. It is a very powerful antioxidant, and protector against free radicals. Argan oil luxuriously hydrates the skin and smooths away the lines.
Only pure virgin and unrefined argan oil is beneficial for skin.
