Argan oil

Argan oil is a special vegetable oil extracted from the fruits of the rare Argania spinosa, also called 'the tree of beauty'. Until 15 years ago, almost no one outside Morocco knew of the existence of argan oil, while Berber women have been using 'Moroccan gold' for their beauty for many centuries. But what is the secret behind argan oil and what do you use it for? We list the most important advantages and uses.

The nickname 'Moroccan gold' says a lot about the production and properties of argan oil. For example, argan oil owes its rare status to the time-consuming process of extracting the oil from the fruits of the argan tree. In addition, argan trees are becoming increasingly scarce and only grow in the south of Morocco. The word 'gold' not only refers to the rarity of argan oil, but especially to its special composition and the results it has on both skin and hair. The proof of its miraculous effect lies in the fact that argan oil is still used after many generations and is lovingly passed on to their children.


One of the most common beauty complaints is dry and thin hair. Let this be exactly the power of argan oil. Argan oil is a rich mix that includes fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamin E. This composition has the property of penetrating relatively deeply into the hair , making the hair more flexible. The linoleic acid also creates a protective layer, which makes your hair retain moisture better, shine and break less quickly. Finally, the antioxidants provide protection from the outside. By regularly using argan oil, you preserve your hair, giving it back its volume and shine.

For your hair, you can leave it on for a few hours or massage it into a dry scalp before washing it, or you can rub a few drops into your hands and distribute it over the hair for extra shine.

You've probably heard of them before: free radicals. These harmful substances play an important factor in skin aging and can be counteracted by antioxidants. Although these occur naturally in the skin , this decreases as we age, leading to visible skin aging. The amount of antioxidants in Argan oil, including vitamin E (tocopherol), support the skin's healing capacity and is therefore called a natural anti-aging. In addition, argan oil is a blessing for dry skin and is very suitable for caring for cuticles, hands and lips.

Argan oil can be used in many ways. Use it over your day cream as an extra serum, or simply where the skin feels dry to make the skin soft and supple again. There are also creams with argan oil that are very soft and nourishing. A few drops pure argan oil taking a bath also works wonders for dry skin.
