What is Argan Oil or Moroccan Argan Oil?

WHAT IS ARGAN OIL or MOROCCAN ARGAN 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.

What is 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.

The path to Holistic Beauty

Find ways to let your mind discover other possibilities.
We all have it within ourselves to find inner peace, balance and happiness.

While attending the National Symposium of Holistic Arts Practitioner at Harvard University last week I learned that we have many ways to heal ourselves with what is available around and within us: oxygen, water, energy, frequencies, exercise, flowers, plants, fruits, vegetables, sea salts, minerals and crystals.
But our biggest and most powerful tools are our mind, consciousness, awareness and abilities to listen.

It is only when we allow our conscious mind to listen to what we need and why we need it that we can truly help ourselves achieve wellbeing and stop being fooled with toxic ephemeral solutions.

Holistic Beauty
KENZA International Beauty

We are surrounded by many holistic wellness optons or approaches to heal symptoms, diseases and overall well-being. It includes Naturopathy, homeopathy, massage therapy (deep tissue, Thai massage , Chi gong, Shiatsu, Ashiatsu) , meditation, aromatherapy, Ayurveda, Acupunture, Reiki, or even hypnotherapy.

I participated to this symposium without thinking that I was also a healer. After two days of listening to holistic experts talk, I understood that there are many ways to offer healing. I discovered that by offering beauty products made with natural, botanical active ingredients, I am also contributing to your well-being and therefore I am a healer.

This is the path that I want to continue exploring and by offering what nature already blesses us with, I want to be part of your well-being.

I am so grateful to all the participants for guiding my way by sharing their knowledge, passion and love of healing others.
