You’ve probably tried a beauty product containing argan oil sometime during the last couple of years, since it’s one of the trendiest ingredients for everything from eye cream to hair conditioner.
Chances are, however, that the product you bought wasn’t produced with the best argan oil available.
Argan oil comes from the nut of the argan tree, which is grown in a region of southwest Morocco called Arganeraie. Reportedly one of nature’s most remarkable oils, argan oil is naturally rich in Vitamin E and antioxidants and contains the highest concentration of essential fatty and linoleic acid. Among its benefits are fighting free radicals that cause cell damage; moisturizing and strengthening brittle and nails; adding lustre and bounce to hair, and making hands and feet feel soft and silky.
