Skin-soothing and anti-aging properties, the raw organic Argan Oil is purchased from a women’s cooperative that works within a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, ensuring the protection and reforestation of argan trees, as well as supporting the social and economic welfare of the women involved. When used on a regular basis, Argan Oil smoothes wrinkles, softens skin, and increases skin elasticity. Vitamin E, one of the most powerful biological antioxidants, is found at very high concentrations in Argan Oil. Vitamin E holds the ability to neutralize free radicals and help protect cell membranes from lipid oxidation, thereby slowing the aging process and sustaining your skin’s youthful appearance. Argan Oil also contains exceptionally high levels of essential fatty acids, including linoleic acid (omega-6), which protect and repair the skin by stimulating intracellular oxygenation, helping to restore the vital balance of water and fats in the hydrolipidic film of the skin. As such, Argan Oil is effective in treating and soothing acne, psoriasis, eczema, and cold sores.
Your hair and scalp can also highly benefit from the restorative and protective properties of Argan Oil. By mending split ends and repairing dry, damaged hair, Argan Oil will strengthen the protein-bonding structures of the hair and restore elasticity, shine and luster, making the hair smoother and more manageable. It will help treat and soothe dry, flaky scalp conditions, as well as nourish and promote healthy hair growth. Apply the oil on dry or wet hair from tip to root, and finish with a light scalp massage. Wrap a warm towel around your head and leave the oil on for 30 minutes or multiple hours. Wash and style as usual. To further smooth hair texture, mend split ends and moisturize, a light layer of oil may be applied on the bottom three quarters of your hair length just before blow-drying; the heat will then help the oil penetrate even deeper, and give the hair more luster and shine.
Even dry, brittle nails can be addressed with Argan Oil. Soak your nails and cuticles in a mixture of equal parts of Argan Oil and lemon juice to soften your cuticles and strengthen your nails, and finish off the perfect manicure with a luscious layer of Argan Oil all over your hands.
