Alive with skin-loving nutrients, Argan oil helps to heal and is said to protect from the signs of aging. Argan oil is light and easily absorbed into the skin, making it a crucial ingredient in nourishing and hydrating skin care products. Argan oil contains tocopherols and phenols, carotenes, squaline and fatty acids, making it a truly luxurious oil. It is often used in skin, nail and hair treatments to deliver deep hydration, strengthen brittle hair and nails and to prevent blemishes. Works well in lotion and cream formulations, or when used alone. Unlike many commercially-available varieties of argan oil, ours is not deodorized and does have a pungent aroma. Keeps well when stored in a cool place and away from sunlight.
