If you have been reading beauty blogs and magazines, undoubtedly, you have heard of argan oil. Argan oil is a miracle product of sorts for both hair and skin, but what exactly is this oil that comes from the far away land of Morocco? If you have read about this magical potion you may be wondering what argan oil is and what it can do for you.
The oil itself comes from the kernels of the nuts from the Argan tree. The extracted oil has been used in cosmetics and foods since as early as the 1500s! Anything that has been used for this long must have some redeeming qualities, right? Some people call this potion “liquid gold” or “the Gold of Morocco.” With names like this, how can you go wrong? The oil is rich in essential fatty acids and Vitamin E, and this is why it is said to be so nourishing for skin, hair and nails. The oil has twice as much Vitamin E as olive oil, and it also contains vital antioxidants. Wow! What’s not to love?
Here is a list of things argan oil can be used for: softening dry skin, minimizing fine lines, reducing blemishes and scarring, softening cuticles, repairing split ends and giving skin a fresh and renewed look. Wow! Talk about a multi-tasking product! Argan oil, with all of these uses, is definitely a product you want in your beauty collection.
