Argan oil is a precious and relatively rare oil that comes from the nuts of the Argan trees that grow in some parts of Morocco. The nuts are picked by hand, shelled and then cold-pressed. The oil is then bottled in batches and kept at a cool temperature. This is a production process that maintains the integrity of the ingredients and keeps the oil fresh and unspoilt.
Argan oil one of the most popular oils today because of its remarkable ability to moisturise the skin. The oil is rich in omega 9, oleic acid and omega 6. It may help to reduce redness and swelling. It also has a high polyphenol content which is a powerful antioxidant. Argan oil is great for the nails and hair too and can be added to body moisturisers and conditioning treatments.
