What is Argan Oil?
Argan oil, also referred to as liquid gold for its powerful and wide range of uses, is a rich and highly nourishing oil extracted from the kernel of the argan tree fruit. This tree can only be found in Morocco, which explains why this oil is much more expensive than your average beauty product or skincare ingredient.
However, that’s not all there is to this luxurious oil. Argan oil is also celebrated for its unique ability to condition and nourish the skin, hair, and nails. It’s no wonder that this oil has been used for centuries in Morocco for both culinary and cosmetic purposes.
Nowadays, argan oil is a popular ingredient in many hair and skincare products. A source rich with Vitamin A, E and a selection of acids is just what your skin needs, especially when you sweat a lot during the summer or when the air is dry and you feel sticky. How does argan oil work exactly? Here are some of the main benefits that your skin gets from using argan oil-based products.
