Argan oil comes from the kernels of Argan trees from southwestern Morocco.  Argan oil is one of the rarest oils in the world since it can grown in specific areas.

  • Vitamin E.  This vitamin is known to be the strongest anti-oxidant.  Anti-oxidants role is to protect our cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.  Vitamin E and other anti-oxidants are well known in fighting the signs of skin aging.
  •  Essential Fatty Acids.  Essential fatty acids helps improve heart and brain health, it also helps in variety of skin problems.  With the combination of essential fatty acids in Argan oil can help treat skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema.
  • Carotenes.  The predecessor of Vitamin A, or Retinol.  I’m familiar with Vitamin A for eyes, but as a composition for beauty products… hmm, I’m curious.  Upon researching more, I’m amazed to know that Vitamin A or Retinol can help clear up skin problems and premature aging from sun and warts, and improves durability and health of the hair.
  • Squalene.  I learned before that squalene are good for the skin, beneficial as a beauty supplement.  It has anti-oxidant properties too.  It is used to treat hair loss, prevent stretch marks and is even effective with healing scar tissue.  This Argan oil component is also found in variety of animals and plants.
Its Uses
Argan oil is a very popular oil because of what it can do.  Since it has great effects to users it is the most prized oil in the beauty market!

Argan oil, unlike other oils, it is easily absorbed by hair, skin and nails.  It works wonders on hair loss and scalp issues, such as dandruff; protects the skin by delaying skin aging; and, strengthen weak nails.

Being so effective with what they it can do, a couple of drops is more than enough.


Having learned so much about Argan oil, which I haven’t heard before, I’m wondering how much a bottle of Argan oil costs?  With the benefits it can do to our hair, skin and nails, would you think it’s expensive?
