| Skin | This wonder ingredient has been the beauty rage in the last few years, but many products contain only a small percentage of the oil itself. This 100% Pure Cold-Pressed Argan oil has natural skin benefits without additives. It smoothes and moisturizes leaving complexions looking healthy and glowing. High in both vitamin E and essential fatty acids, it can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Applied to the scalp it can reduce dry scaly patches and itching. Applied when wet as an after-bathing moisturizer, it softens and smoothes even dry areas.
| Hair | Argan oil is equally lauded for its effects on hair as on skin, and is used in many hair products. The pure oil itself can be applied to hair either as a deep conditioning treatment or to reduce fly away ends. Extremely nourishing and effective.
| Nails | A gentle moisturizing treatment, restores nail strength and conditions cuticles.
Argan Oil has been used for centuries as a moisturizer, hair conditioner, and body lotion. It helps fight redness and irritation. It is high in both oleic and linoleic acids and therefore has a good balance of both Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids. The high ratio of unsaponifiable oils are thought to contribute to its traditional use as a healing oil and the relatively high level of tocopherols are known for their free radical scavenging capabilities. The tocopheral content of Argan oil comprises 69% gamma tocopheral which is the most efficient free radical scavenging tocopheral molecule. (1) (2)

How to Use
| Skin | Argan oil can be applied sparingly to the skin without dilution. While suitable for all skin types, those with oily skin should use a smaller amount as the oil is extremely hydrating. It can also be added to your favorite body or face cream. Applied when wet as an after bathing moisturizer, it softens and smoothes even dry areas.
| Hair | After washing rub two drops into hands before running fingers through your hair, or apply sparingly to damp ends. To reduce an itching or flaky scalp, place a few drops on a cotton ball and apply to affected area. Wash hair to remove excess.
| Nails | Add a few drops on nails and cuticles to promote moisture.
| Storage | All our products are provided in glass amber bottles to preserve the integrity of the contents. Argan Oil is best stored in a cool, dry place away from light. Because our oil is 100% pure and natural and contains no artificial preservatives it should be used within 6 months of opening.
For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. As with all skin products, we recommend a 1 drop patch test on your arm 24 hours before first use.
100% Organic Argan (Argania Spinosa Kernel) Oil.
Unrefined and containing no preservatives or additives. This oil is suitable for vegans and cruelty free. Our product is 100% natural, free of parabens and any synthetic fragrance. It does not contain glutens, essential oils, or colorants. Pure Argan Oil has a slight natural “nutty” aroma which dissipates quickly on use.
| Cultivation | Derived from the kernel of the Argan Tree and rarely grown outside of its native Morocco. The kernels are harvested by hand and then cold-pressed to extract the precious oil. This cold-press method of extraction is critical to retain the efficacy of the nutrients. Many brands of argan oil on the market are derived using heat extraction which deactivates some of the beneficial compounds in the oil.
Produced in small batches.
