Argan oil is produced by the nuts found on argan trees which are native to Morocco – these nuts contain between 1 and 3 oil-rich argan kernels which are then extracted by cracking and roasting the nuts to produce what we know as argan oil.
Argan Oil is a rich source of Vitamin E, essential for skin and hair. It also contains powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce inflammation.
Argan oil contains lots of beneficial ingredients for health, hair care, and skin care including:
- Vitamin E – helps maintain healthy skin and eyes, and strengthens the body’s immune system
- Phenols – found in plant-based compounds like argan oil, this acts as a highly effective antioxidant helping to prevent damage to DNA from free radicals
- Carotenes – this is converted by the body into Vitamin A which supports healthy skin, eyes, and boosts your immune system
- Fatty acids – help to produce the skin’s natural oil barrier so therefore helps to keep skin looking hydrated, plumper, and younger looking
