Argan oil is obtained from the seeds of the argan tree fruits. For centuries, people from the south of Morocco have extracted the oil for cosmetic and culinary purposes. Nowhere else does the argan tree grow in the world. It is used worldwide for cooking and cosmetics but also for medicinal purposes as it offers a variety of health benefits.
Argan Oil Beneficial Properties
Argan oil contains high concentrations of unsaturated fatty acids such as oleic and linoleic acid. These make up the bulk of the fat content in the oil. It is full of vitamin A and it contains three times as much vitamin E as olive oil!
Argan oil has a hydrating effect thanks to its high fatty acids content and this makes it super hydrating for the hair and the skin. In addition to that, both vitamins A and E have healing and anti-inflammatory properties. They are also powerful antioxidants that help decrease the negative effects of free radicals that damage our hair and skin on a daily basis.
Linoleic acid found in argan oil is essential to preserving healthy skin and hair. Research indicates that applying argan oil can help slow down aging by reducing inflammation and oxidative stress as it facilitates restoration and preservation of healthy hair and skin. It has been shown that argan oil penetrates the hair shaft and lubricates it while retaining the moisture.
