You may be wondering what all the fuss is about Argan oil - having heard the ingredient mentioned constantly within the cosmetics industry for the last few years. Argan oil is an oil made from the Argan tree, found in Morocco. In Morocco, Argan oil is primarily used at breakfast to dip bread into, but in the west it's much better known for its healing and health-promoting qualities. It is a natural hair and skincare product, and over the past few years, has grown significantly in popularity all over the world.

Understanding the benefits of Argan oil

The benefits of argan oil for the face are endless. People suffering with eczema or dry skin can benefit from the use of Argan oil due to the fatty acids and vitamin E found within.

Argan oil also promotes healing and is well known for soothing angry, irritated skin so people suffering with acne could benefit from its healing qualities. It acts by reducing the level of sebum found in oily skin, fighting the acne, as well as reducing the risk of scarring.

Argan oil can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles and tired-looking skin due to the vitamin A and vitamin E found within the oil. The oil can be considered anti-aging as it ensures skin looks healthy and glowing. Thanks to all these benefits, it’s no surprise Argan oil has become a huge hit in the beauty community.

Argan oil is gentle and is certainly safe to use around the eyes and mouth area.
