Beauty Benefits from the Argan Tree
By: Rachad Atat
Argan oil is extracted through a cold-pressing technique from the kernels of the Argan tree, which is native to Morocco. The oil has been used for centuries by Berber women in Morocco for health and beauty before it spread out to the world. Due to the increased deforestation, the Argan tree is only found in a small area between the Atlantic and Atlas Mountains, protected by the UNESCO.
Despite advancements in technological production methods, Argan oil is still extracted using primitive methods by cracking the nuts, extracting the pits and cold-pressing to get the oil. This labor-intensive work and the scarcity of Argan trees have all led to an increase in prices. Nevertheless, this oil is worth buying due to its regenerative and nurturing power to the skin. Argan oil is very high in Vitamin E, fatty acids, squalene, and carotenes. Unlike other oils which tend to be greasy, Argan oil is readily absorbed into your skin. By applying a few drops on your face, it can help moisturise and hydrate your skin reducing wrinkles and giving you a glowing skin. It also helps with restoring elasticity and fighting oxidative stress. Got Acne? Consider adding Argan oil to your acne formula to heal irritated skin.
I also use it on my hair to give shine, prevent hair loss, and eliminate frizz, making it more manageable and promoting hair growth.
Stretch marks are an issue for many pregnant women, but Argan oil is the ideal protection against stretch marks and sagging, puckered skin after birth. Argan oil’s softening properties are also ideal for brittle nails, dry hands and cracked hard skin on feet.
Remember, a little goes a long way. You only need a few drops to get these amazing benefits! When buying Argan oil, make sure you buy certified organic pure Argan oil for cosmetic uses.
