What Makes Argan Oil Effective?
Argan oil, one of the rarest and most precious oils in the world comes mainly from Southwestern Morocco. The Argan tree goes back thousands of years and is under UNESCO protection as universal commonwealth.
The beneficial properties of olive, avocado, grapeseed, peanut-seed oils and shea butter can all be found in argan oil. It has anti-aging, antiinflamatory, repairing, and soothing properties. The high concentration of vitamins E, F and A makes it a great nourishing and regenerating agent.
Argan oil is the only vegetable oil that combines all of these properties. For both dry and oily skin, it helps restore a balanced skin pH and controls sebum production. Argan oil can also be beneficial for scarring, acnae and stretch marks.
Additionally, it helps repair the damage associated with the use of mineral make up and protects against exterior agressions, such as UVA rays, cold weather, chemicals and pollution. Arganat™ uses only extra-virgin traditionally-extracted raw argan oil.
