Often referred to as ‘liquid gold’, Argan oil is in a league of its own. It has superb properties that heal the skin, and can be used to maintain healthy hair too. It’s no wonder Moroccan women can’t stop praising Argan oil.
MOROCCAN BEAUTY HAS ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT SIMPLICITY
Everything about traditional Moroccan skincare is simple and down to earth, literally. People in Morocco exfoliate the body using African Black Soap, use natural kohl as eyeliner and mascara, remove dirt and impurities from their skin with mineral-rich clays like Rhassoul, eat fresh veggies and lean meats, and moisturise their body and hair using native argan oil.
HOW ARGAN OIL IS PRODUCED
Argan comes from the kernels of a fruit made by the Argania Spinosa (Argan) tree. The kernels are dried by the sun, then roasted as they’re grounded. The roasting produces a thick yellow/gold liquid, which is filtered to produce pure argan oil.
BENEFITS OF ARGAN OIL

- The fatty acids also help to reduce stretchmarks.
- It has anti-oxidants that delay ageing, making sure that your skin maintains its youthful glow.
- Argan oil has an anti-sebum property that prevents your skin from producing excessive oils that lead to acne.
- Argan oil is very rich in Vitamin E, which is suitable for dry skin, and it’s jam-packed with anti-inflammatory qualities which help to soothe irritated skin.
- It’s an emollient, which means it’s perfect for use all over your body as a moisturiser all-year round.
