For centuries, argan has been the beauty secret of the Amazigh people of Morocco. They call it “liquid gold” and use the oil for almost everything. It treats ailments like heart disease and rheumatism, clears breakouts, and deeply nourishes hair, skin, lips and more.The oil is incredibly versatile. It’s composed of mono‐unsaturated and saturated fatty acids, polyphenols, tocopherols, sterols, squalene, and triterpene alcohols. Read on to find out more about the chemical composition of argan oil.
Prevent and repair breakouts
“Argan oil is richer in Tocopherol (Vitamin E) than any other plant oils” explains Dermatologist Debora Landau. Tocopherol has an anti-inflammatory effect that both prevents the emergence of acne and fights existing acne. It also helps with cell regeneration. And it may sound counterintuitive, but using a natural non-pore clogging oil like argan actually helps regulate the oil production of your skin, which means you can say goodbye to excessive oiliness and hello to clear, breakout free skin. This makes it a wonderful post-workout treatment to keep skin clear and fresh.
Fight the signs of aging
The sterols present in argan diminish the cell membrane damage caused by UVA and UVB radiation. They also protect skin against cellular stress and promote cell regeneration. Argan’s proteins and peptides have anti-wrinkle properties. Argan’s antioxidants protect skin from free radicals and inhibit the enzymes that catalyse the degeneration of collagen and elastin. This means using argan can leave you with younger looking skin. Argan oil is great for all skin types and conditions but particularly powerful if you spend a lot of time working out outdoors in the sun.
Keep skin and hair deeply nourished
Argan isn’t just about skin. Argan saponins make hair softer and smoother. The combination of tocopherol, fatty acids and potent antioxidants mean that argan naturally restores shine to dull lifeless looking hair and helps to improve hair’s elasticity. Argan also works wonders at moisturizing skin; the fatty acids provide a deep hit of hydration while sterolskeep skin firm by retaining moisture. The best part is that despite being an oil, argan won’t leave skin feeling greasy or oily. It absorbs fast and leaves you glowing - perfect for an active lifestyle!
