Pure, undiluted, cold hand-pressed VIRGIN* organic Argan oil. Exceptional quality - this oil started off as an important ingredient in one of our original products - Deep Hydration Conditioner. We decided to begin offering it as a standalone product due to its superior quality and wonderful results as a standalone product after trying multitudes of other Argan oils that didn't even come close to this in potency and effectiveness.
A little of this nutrient dense oil goes a long way for both skin care and hair care needs. It did not get its nickname "liquid gold" for nothing! Excellent for maintaining radiant, healthy skin and hair. Recommended use for skin - apply in the evening to clean, dry skin. Recommended use for hair - use a drop or two, rubbed between the palms, and smooth onto hair to tame flyaways and frizz, and add moisture to dry hair or to refresh hair between washings.

Why give our Argan oil a try as opposed to the multitude of other brands out there - or for that matter, other types of oils? The level of quality and purity in this particular Argan oil is evident in that the characteristic smoky, earthy scent with a fruity "fig" like undertone that the purest Argan oil should have is very much present. *Please note the scent of raw, unprocessed VIRGIN argan oil is strong. This is not a de-odorized (deodorization destroys beneficial compounds and properties), overly refined or processed version. It is in its rawest "virgin" form for maximum potency, retention of essential fatty acids and vitamins - and most importantly - maximum effectiveness and superior performance.
More about this truly amazing oil and how to use it for hair or skin:
Argan oil, also known as Moroccan oil since the tree nuts from which it is pressed grow on a tree native to Morocco, is one of the best oils you can use for both your skin and hair. Used nightly as a facial oil (and don't forget the often neglected neck and chest "decolletage" area) and wake up to smooth, supple glowing skin. Another area this oil can really help is the forearms, which are exposed to sunlight and often begin to show "crepiness" similar to the crepiness on the neck and facial skin due to the simple fact this skin is highly exposed during the summer months.
As far as nightly use, many users notice their skin’s color and tone looks better after using Argan oil overnight. It can be hard to get used to using an oil as opposed to a cream or lotion on the skin at night, especially if you previously had issues with acne in your youth, however it does sink in, and it can really add a whole new level to your skincare routine as far as moisture infusion and retention.
For hair care, depending on length and volume of your hair, you can also use a half to a full squirt to smooth frizz for glossier, more manageable hair. Simply rub between your hands and smooth from crown to ends for even distribution. Especially useful if you've gone a few days between washing and conditioning to add lost renewed luster until your next wash. This oil also happens to be an ingredient in our Deep Hydration Conditioner for its superior strand-quenching capabilities.
Argan oil has high levels of naturally occurring vitamin E (high in gamma tocopherol, the most effective kind for skin improvement), an important antioxidant and repairing agent for the skin. It also protects against damage. It also contains high levels of the antioxidants squalene and phenolic acid. These also help to protect and repair the skin while also helping to brighten and even out the skin tone.
Linoleic acid and oleic acid are two of the largest fatty components of Argan oil. They are in the omega family of fats and are known for their great moisture-contributing qualities as well as their protective qualities. Argan oil can even be used to help fade old acne scars can be a great moisturizer for acne prone skin since it has a low probability of clogging the pores or causing changes in sebum production. It also contains several natural constituents which help calm inflammation and speed the healing of scarring and smooth out old pitting and discolorations from acne.
Since it has a high naturally occurring form of vitamin E, it can also work really well to help heal and soothe sunburned skin. It may also help prevent peeling due to sunburn. Its high antioxidant value really helps address so many of the skincare problems we have that are due to sun exposure and everyday environmental wear and tear. This naturally protective oil serves many purposes for the skin and hair, and a little goes quite a long way in doing so. Our recommendation is to use this on the facial skin as part of your night time skincare routine, however some may prefer to use it both night and day, depending on skin type and how your skin absorbs oil as opposed to creams and lotions.
