100% Organic Virgin Argan Oil
Nourishes, moisturizes and improves skin elasticity. Oil effectively treats dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, acne and sunburned skin and is a great choice for inclusion in formulations for maturing skin. Its high content makes it a strong anti-oxidant and adds to the stable shelf life. Virgin Organic Argan oil possesses anti-inflammatory properties and is a highly beneficial addition to formulations intended to reduce swelling and ease muscular aches and pains.
The oil is pressed from the fruits of the Argan Tree (Arganta spinosa), a tree that is native to Morocco and known to live up to 200 years. For centuries, Moroccans have used Argan oil on skin care and within their nutritious diet.
Argan oil remains one of the rarest oils in the world. A very labor intensive process, performed primarily by Moroccan women, is required to shell and crush the fruits prior to pressing the oil. It is high in lipids including the omega-9 oleic acid and the omega-6 linoleic acid.
