WHAT IS ARGAN OIL?
We use 100% pure organic quality argan oil as the base ingredient in all our oils, because the oil is very rich in both vitamin E and F. Vitamin E is known as an antioxidant that protects the body's fats from breakdown, and vitamin F consists of essential fatty acids that the body cannot produce itself. This means that the oil is rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, which are very healthy and can typically be found in nuts and seeds. Its Latin name is Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil.
In recent years, argan oil has become increasingly popular among beauty-related brands in the world – all the while the oil was already extracted and used extensively by Moroccan inhabitants several centuries ago. The oil is extracted from the argan nut, which grows mainly in the drought areas of Morocco, and has amazing multifunctional properties for your body and beauty.
If you suffer from fungus on your scalp, the oil is suitable for removing and preventing it. The oil has a cleansing effect that removes infections that give you fungus and at the same time prevents future mold formation. The oil adds natural shine to your hair and moisture to your skin, which many experience losing in the dry and cold air in the north. When you use our products with argan oil, you are using a 100% natural product without preservatives, additives or parabens.
Today, only Berber women in southern Morocco have the authority to pick the fruits from the argan tree. The Berber culture goes back several centuries, and it is also said that it is precisely this group of people who at some point discovered the wonderful effects of argan oil.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ORGANIC AND CONVENTIONAL ARGAN OIL?
It is crucial to distinguish between organic and conventional argan oil. If argan oil is organic, you get a 100% concentrated product with a unique effect. At the same time, you also support a more sustainable cultivation of the argan fruit tree. However, it is a slower process to produce organic argan oil, as the fruits on the trees - in addition to growing slowly - also do not yield much oil, as the fruits are generally smaller.
Most argan oil products on the market are blended products, so you rarely get 100% argan oil for your money. In many cases, the percentage of argan oil is very low, you can hardly believe that the oil is of good quality. We use a 100% pure organic argan oil as the base ingredient in all our oils and store our oils in a UV safe glass bottle to protect the oils and give you the best results.
WHY IS VITAMIN E SO IMPORTANT?
Vitamin E is an excellent moisturizer for your skin and prevents further water loss. It can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It's a great anti-aging agent that contains tocopherols that protect the skin cells that produce collagen and elastin (a protein that helps the skin keep its shape) and can soothe acne scars.
It is one of the most well-known and researched antioxidants for the body and skin. Vitamin E occurs naturally in human skin, but can be depleted due to constant environmental exposure in the absence of sun protection.
