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.

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).
