Argan Oil Organic, Argania spinosa (6642)
Argan Oil comes from the nuts of the argan tree which grows almost exclusively in Morocco. The trees grow in a harsh, desert environment and the oil provides protective properties to prevent moisture loss (a function which is also valuable for skin care). This oil is is amazingly high in vitamin E and essential fatty acids which make it useful for all manner of skin disorders and as a general skin restorer.
Argan Oil is light and penetrates the skin easily. It has anti-inflammatory properties and is also recommended for anti-ageing skin care. This oil is traditionally produced by roasting the nuts so has a slightly 'toasty' scent.
This is a pure natural therapeutic quality carrier oil from Morocco. Many carrier oils have significant benefit for maintaining a healthy and youthful skin. See also About Carrier Oils.
