What is Argan Oil?

Argan oil, also known as Moroccan oil, is one of the most powerful ingredients found in nature. It also happens to be one of the hottest trends in today’s beauty industry. From adding shine to dull hair to shielding skin from disease-causing free radicals, argan oil is an all-in-one ingredient that can help you fix specific problems as well as improve your overall health. If you have never used beauty products with argan oil before, now is a great time to start. With choices that range from moisturising spray tans to nourishing body lotions, the wide selection of beauty products that are infused with argan oil makes it easy to get the benefits of Moroccan oil with only a few subtle changes to your beauty routine.

Where Does Moroccan Oil Come From?

The process of making argan oil starts with harvesting the fruits of Morocco’s native argan trees. The kernels that rest inside the fruits are cracked open and ground into a paste, which is then squeezed into argan oil. The reason argan oil is so highly valued is not only because argan trees are endemic to a specific region in Morocco, but the process of making premium argan oil is done entirely by hand. While mechanical presses are sometimes used during the first stages of production, the removal of kernels that are used to make argan oil is performed manually by local Moroccan women.

Benefits of Moroccan Oil

Argan oil is full of antioxidants, vitamins and other active ingredients that are beneficial to your skin, hair and health. Because of its high antioxidant content, argan oil is often recommended for protecting the skin from ageing and environmental damage. In fact, argan oil is considered to be one of the best anti-ageing ingredients available on today’s market, due to its unique combination of hydrating moisturisers and antioxidants. Both elements work together to help the skin retain moisture and prevent loss of elasticity. When used regularly, argan oil can make your skin soft and silky smooth.

Argan oil is also widely used in hair products. Its hydrating properties work best on frizzy or damaged hair that requires extra moisture. It can be applied to hair as pure oil or as a deep conditioning treatment.
