First of all, argan oil is a wonderful example of a natural skin care product that truly works. Researchers claim that pure organic Argan oil is beneficial for treating wrinkles, aging, acne, dry skin, hair treatment, dry scalp, hair growth, stretch marks, cracked feet and psoriasis. It was discovered a long time ago in Morocco by French and English tourists, however, for being pretty new to America, the oil has already established its credibility and is highly sought after. The Argan tree grows in Souss valley south east of Agadir and north east Essouira in Morocco. The argan tree lives longer than the olive and requires no cultivation. Traditionally, Moroccan women extract Argan oil by collecting the seeds and then pressing them. In order to obtain 1 liter of Argan oil, it takes about 12 - 20 hours of work by hand. For centuries Moroccan women have used Argan oil to nourish their skin, hair and nails. It's no surprise that it is being called "liquid gold".
It is high in vitamin E and essential fatty acids which are beneficial in protecting against premature aging caused by oxidation. Multiple researchers have been pointing to the hypolipemiant and antioxidant properties of argan oil. I've been using it for a couple of weeks, and I not only see the difference in my skin, but also people around me have noticed my healthy glow!
