Argan oil is one of the latest wonder ingredients of the beauty world, used in many beauty products like Moringa-O². But what does it really do?
What is argan oil?
Argan oil comes from the kernels found inside the argan nut, found in the fruit of argan trees. Commonly found in Morocco, argan oil was traditionally used to treat different ailments like skin dryness, acne, wrinkles, and joint pain. It is also used in cooking, with health benefits that include lower cholesterol and relief from arthritis.
Argan oil is often referred to as “liquid gold” because it is rich in essential nutrients such as vitamin E and fatty acids. Its properties make it highly beneficial to the skin and hair, which is why it is such a sought-after ingredient in many beauty products and cosmetics.

So what beauty benefits can you reap from this powerful essential oil? Here are just some of the ways argan oil can boost your skin and hair:
1. It’s a great skin moisturizer.
Because of its high vitamin E and fatty acid content, it makes for a great skin moisturizer. This oil is easily absorbed by the skin and is non-irritating, making it easy to apply on the body.

Using shampoo and conditioner with argan oil doesn’t just make your hair silkier; it also helps tame frizzy hair and treat split ends.
