The Skin Care Benefits Of Argan Oil

Argan oil is an oil made from the nuts of the argan tree, which is a tree native to the country of Morocco and grows solely in that region. Argan oil is noted for its anti-aging and restorative properties, and is also known to help with a number of skin issues, such as acne, wrinkles, dull and dry skin, eczema and even psoriasis.

This rare oil, also known as ?Liquid Gold,? has been used by Moroccan women for hundreds of years. It is packed with phytoserols and vitamin E, which aids with diminishing scars and reducing the appearance of age spots. As a matter of fact, argan oil has twice the amount of vitamin E than the highly-nutrient dense olive oil. It also loaded with essential fatty acids, phenols and sterols, which are all needed to keep skin healthy and young looking.

In addition to its high concentration of vitamin E, it also has carotene rich vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential to combating fine lines and wrinkles as well as helping speed up the cell turnover process, which gives skin its healthy, clear, vibrant appearance

Argan oil readily absorbs into the skin, producing immediate, visible results. In addition, it has anti-inflammatory abilities, which is beneficial for those suffering from skin disorders such as chicken pox, arthritis and acne, as it heals old scars and prevents new breakouts. It is also a powerful antioxidant, which protects skin against harmful free-radicals and the sun?s UV rays.

Not only do argan oil?s beneficial properties soften skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and stretch marks, but its production is part of a fair trade cooperative. This guarantees that the oil, which is solely produced by the Berber women of Morocco, is 100 percent organic and free of fertilizers, pesticides or other harmful chemicals.
