Argan oil is the summer best treatment for common skin ailments.

Argan in Aruba

Because Argan oil is high in natural antioxidants, it helps protect the skin from environmental factors (e.g. polluting chemicals and sun damage), prevents free-radical damage, assists skin repair and rejuvenation, and gives your skin that hard-to-achieve “glow.”

Instead of using skincare product that may have diluted Argan oil with a long list of chemical ingredients, you’re better off purchasing the real pure Argan oil (the purity preserves the integrity of the antioxidant Vitamin E).


KENZA Pure Argan oil for all!

Fortunately, Moroccan Argan oil is available in its pure, concentrated, and unadulterated form.

KENZA Pure Argan oil – which is 100% pure and certified USDA organic – is an amazing, cost-effective, multipurpose skin care for all (women, men, and kids) and the summer best treatment for common skin ailments:

Bug bites
Mosquitos, bees, or wasp stings can lead to days of irritation. KENZA Argan oil helps soften the sting itchiness and puffiness and eases discomfort.

USDA Organic Argan oil benefits for Skin and Hair

KENZA Pure Argan oil 100% Pure - USDA Organic
KENZA Pure Argan oil
100% Pure – USDA Organic
It all about Argan oil lately. The name is becoming so familiar in the beauty market all over the world and yet shoppers can be confused. Honestly I was too few years ago, even if I been around this liquid gold for over three decades. As a Moroccan myself, it was a difficult task to get authentic, pure Argan oil even in Morocco. So my advise to you is to read as much as you can, look for products that are pure with International certification that are trustable.

Do you really know what is Argan oil or Moroccan oil? What is the difference between cold pressed and hand pressed? Why the prices range from $15 to over $70 for a 2oz bottle? What are the real benefits of using 100% pure Argan oil that is USDA organic and ISO certified for quality?

What is Argan Oil or Moroccan oil?

Argan oil, one of the oldest beauty treasures from Morocco, is a multi-purpose natural beauty care product that will enhance your beauty life. This natural wonder oil, used by Moroccan women for centuries, is derived from the fruit of the Argan (Argania Spinosa) tree in the Southwest of Morocco. The Argan tree can live up to 200 years in a dry arid region and produces an oval-shape green and yellow fruit. A single tree yields 8-13 lbs. of Argan fruit per harvest while each fruit contains 2-3 kernels. Almost 7 lbs. of kernel are required to produce about 34 fl.oz. of Pure Argan Oil.

The production of Argan oil is a labor intensive process that involves manual handling by Moroccan women at cooperatives. After the nuts are collected, they are cracked open by hand with a stone to obtain the kernels which are then machine cold pressed to extract the precious Argan oil. It takes up to 20 hours to produce about 34 fl.oz of Argan Oil.

Composition & Benefits

Argan oil contains approximately twice as much Tocopherols (Vitamin E) than Olive Oil*.

“Tocopherols are molecules with strong anti-oxidant and free radical scavenging properties. gamma-Tocopherols, the most efficient free radical scavenger of all tocopherols, composes 69 percent of argan oil total tocopherols content”**

Its high level of essential fatty acids – Oleic (Omega 9) and Linoleic (Omega 6) – associated to powerful antioxidants (such as Tocopherols and Polyphenols) makes this natural beauty oil an essential element for moisturizing, treating, nourishing, conditioning, and protecting your skin, hair, cuticles, and nails.

>KENZA Pure Argan Oil is a potent non-greasy treatment that is easily absorbed by the skin. Among its many natural benefits,
