What is Argan Oil? and why you should use it daily?

For a long time Argan oil has been known as being very valuable; it is a traditional beauty product and a healthy edible oil. For these reasons and its scarcity the bar for its value is set very high. The trees which produce the fruit and the seeds, from which this rare oil is produced, grow only in Morocco, on the far north-west of the continent of Africa.

The reason why Argan oil is so prized as a beauty product is because of the nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals it contains. Research has shown Argan oil carries many lipids, the structures that form a ‘water barrier’ at the uppermost layer of the skin and help to promote softness and hydration. Argan oil also contains many fatty acids that can promote positive effects in skin, such as oleic, palmitic and linoleic acid. As if that weren’t enough, it’s a natural source of antioxidant compounds (the substances that are crucial for fighting free radicals in the body) as well as Vitamin E. In particular, Argan oil is a rich source of ferulic acid, a natural antioxidant that is also present in rice bran pitch.

Because its contents are so rich in skin-loving substances, Argan oil is great for moisturising and healing skin and promoting greater softness, elasticity and suppleness.
