Ingredient : Argan Oil
What is Argan Oil?
Argan oil is a high-value product that is extracted from the seeds of the Argania tree that only grows in the Arganeraie UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in southwestern Morocco. It is mainly procured from women’s cooperatives in Morocco that are engaged in the production of this oil from the seeds. Argan oil is golden-yellow in colour and similar to refined vegetable oil in consistency. It can be applied directly to the skin or consumed orally to receive a variety of skin and health benefits.
What are the benefits of Argan Oil for skin?
- Argan oil contains naturally occurring antioxidants that protect your skin from free radical damage caused by the sun. In the short term, this prevents problems like sunburn and hyperpigmentation. It is believed that this may, in turn, prevent the development of skin cancer in the long term as well.
- Argan oil contains significant amounts of Vitamin E, which is a naturally-occurring compound that promotes water retention in your skin. Applying this to your skin promotes greater water retention and therefore keeps your skin feeling supple, soft, and hydrated.
- Argan oil has powerful anti-sebum effects, which means it controls the amount of naturally produced sebum on the surface of your skin. This helps prevent the formation of most types of acne, promoting a smoother and more even complexion.
