Argan oil is extracted from the  kernel of the Argan nut. Argan nuts are harvested from the Argan tree that can be found growing only in Southern Morrocco.


The composition of Argan oil makes it highly suitable for use in cosmetic products. Argan oil helps to protect the skin and fights against aging of the skin. 

How does Argan oil help your skin?

Argan oil acts as an effective moisturizer for dry skin. Argan oil has more than 80 % of unsaturated fatty acids such as oleic acid and linoleic acid that helps to moisturize and rejuvenate the skin.

Argan oil helps to increase the elasticity of the skin and delays the appearance of wrinkles. It also helps to reduce inflammation and soothes irritated skin. 

Argan oil is rich in antioxidants that help to protect and fight against damage of skin cells due to free radicals. It also helps to treat stretch marks and tightens sagging skin.

Argan oil is non-greasy and is easily absorbed by the skin. Take a few drops of Argan oil and massage it gently into your skin. 

Argan oil has a high content of squalene that helps to prevent skin cancer.

If you are allergic to Argan oil do not use it on your skin.
