Light and capable of penetrating the skin, argan kernel oil is an excellent oil for use in skin care and for treating problem skin. Argan oil's main fatty acid content is made up of oleic acid and linoleic acid in a combination which allows the oil to be absorbed easily. Rich in polyphenols, sterols and squalene, argan is intensely emollient making it highly beneficial for flaky, itchy or very dry skin. Argan is notable for a very high vitamin E (tocopherol) content, making the oil a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin against free radical damage.
Research has shown that daily topical application of argan kernel oil improves skin elasticity and skin hydration, by restoring the barrier function and maintaining the water-holding capacity, leaving the skin feeling softer, plumper and reducing the visibility of wrinkles. Additionally the oil has been demonstrated to provide a softening and relaxing effect on the skin.
This oil is extracted through a cold pressing that preserves the integrity of the fatty acids, vitamins, phenols (including caffeic acid) and carotenes.
Argan kernel oil is an ideal hair conditioner promoting silk and shine and repairing damage done by chemical treatments, dyes and heat. The oil is also very beneficial for nail health and strength.
In facial massage treatments argan has a medium rate of absorption making it an excellent choice for facial treatments. The oil absorbs completely without leaving any feeling of greasiness.
