Argan Oil, the Liquid Gold from Morocco
Are you seeking a powerful skin treatment that offers outstanding benefits for the skin? Then let’s talk about Argan oil which -in recent years- has become popular and its benefits have been the subject of numerous research studies.
It is a well known fact, that healthy and balanced diet is the best way to get the vitamins and other nutrients our skin needs. Besides we need to nourish our complexion to keep it healthy and glowing.

Thanks to its conditioning and repairing properties, argan oil works as a super-hydrating serum. It helps to rejuvenate skin. Berber women of Morocco have been using it for centuries and even today they are known for their exotic, youthful beauty.
Nowadays, Morocco is the only place where the argan tree (Argania Spinosa) is naturally found. The trees grow to 8-10m high and lives up to 200 years. Once a year the fruit is harvested by the locals, and oil is derived from the fruit kernel. Traditionally, women collect the nuts after they fall from the tree, or collect the nuts that goats spit out after they eat the fruit. Of course there are mechanical methods for harvesting but I like these authentic stories better.
The oil is rich in essential fatty acid and is more resistant to oxidation than olive oil. There are two types of argan oil: culinary and cosmetic. We are dealing now with the cosmetic version. Its benefits are quite impressive and include:
• phenolic antioxidants
Argan oil is often called as liquid gold.
Argan oil has moisturizing, protecting, nutritive and softening benefits. These factors all play an important role in the maintenance of healthy skin.

Clean your face and apply a few drops of oil to your skin. Argan oil is very light and it sinks into your skin without any feeling of greasiness.
Rejuvenating Face Mask
Argan oil is the natural way to pamper and rejuvenate your skin–without the chemicals. Apply a thin layer of argan oil to your freshly washed skin. Let the mask sit for 10 minutes before rinsing. Use as desired.
Have I mentioned stretch marks? Since argan oil increases skin elasticity, it is the ideal protection against stretch marks and sagging. Apply some argan oil to the stretch marks and gently massage the area for 5 to 10 minutes. Repeat it daily for a minimum of one month to notice positive results.
Body and Bath Oil
Create a luxurious bath oil from organic argan oil. Just a few drops into the water help to replace the moisture lost from the skin through bathing. If you prefer shower instead of bath, use it as a body oil. While your body is still wet, apply a thin layer of oil to seal in the moisture.
While nourishing the scalp, it will add moisture and shine to your hair and makes it softer and silkier. This african miracle helps to treat split ends and makes your hair more manageable.
