Argan oil on the skin

IMG_5386-1 Argan oil on the skin

Argan oil is made from the kernels of the argan tree fruit that grows almost exclusively in Morocco. This oil is one of the rarest in the world due to the small supply and the limited growing area – hence the high price and the hype. Traditionally, the oil is produced by hand. First the soft pulp is stripped from the nuts, which are then laid out in the sun to dry. Stones are used to crack open the dried nuts so the seeds can be removed. Next, they’re gently roasted to give the oil a rich, nutty flavor. A little water is added to the roasted seeds and they are ground into a thick paste which is squeezed by hand to extract the oil.

Chemically speaking, argan oil consists of a blend of fatty acids (over 70% oleic and linoleic acids.) It is also rich in vitamin E, phenols, and carotenes. Historically, argan oil has been used in cooking, but since it’s so rich in essential fatty acids it has been found to be beneficial for hair and skin.

What are the benefits? The fatty acids in Moroccan oil make it an excellent moisturizer. It can improve the appearance of dry hair and skin and add shine to hair. In fact, there has been some research that indicates that argan oil may be a treatment for psoriasis (more research needs to be conducted though).
