  • WHAT IS ARGAN OIL?

     

    Argan oil is a natural plant oil derived from the Argan tree, native to Morocco.

    Rich in essential nutrients, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds Argan Oil is suitable for all skin types. And due to its mid weight formula it is not too heavy on the skin and is easily absorbed.

  • HOW DOES ARGAN OIL WORK?

     

    Argan Oil can be applied directly onto skin and hair for amazing benefits.

    Many of the benefits of Argan Oil are due to the high fatty acid content, mainly from Oleic (apporx 1/3rd) and Linoleic Acid (approx. 1/2). Oleic Acid, which can be found in more familiar items such as olive oil and avocado is known for its positive health benefits.

  • HOW CAN I USE ARGAN OIL?

     

    • To Maintain Healthy Skin: Fatty acids in the oil can improve the moisture content of skin helping to make dry, tired skin feel hydrated. This can also improve skin elasticity helping the anti-ageing process.
    • To Reduce Skin Scaring: Argan is high in Vitamin E which makes it a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that can help prevent and reduce stretch marks and scarring on the skin.
    • Acne and Breakouts: Argan Oil can also be used to help acne and breakouts due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capacities. It does this by reducing the redness and irritation that acne can cause skin.
    • Hair and Scalp Treatments: Argan Oil is an amazing treatment for both your hair and scalp.  The high amounts of Vitamin E in the oil is said to help you grow strong and healthy hair. This is because the antioxidants found in the Vitamin E can boost cells and encourage more hair growth.  Great for taming frizz and fly-away hairs but also nourishing split ends and building stronger, healthier hair.
    • Moisturise the Scalp: The fatty acids in Argan Oil can also help to moisturise your scalp, helping to defeat dandruff and itchy dryness in that area.
