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 oil is rich in omega 9, oleic acid and omega 6. It is anti-inflammatory and may reduce redness and swelling. It also has a high polyphenol content which is a powerful antioxidant, so it can protect the skin and reduce damage, whilst also protecting the oil from rancidity. Argan oil is great for the nails and hair and can also be added to body moisturisers and conditioning treatments.
Argan oil is one of the most popular oils today because of its remarkable ability to moisturise the skin and improve elasticity, which is what’s given the oil its reputation for promoting youthfulness and preventing premature ageing.
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.
