*Argania Spinosa (Argan) oil, is commonly used as a moisturizer and cosmetics ingredient, as well as a cooking oil
Derived from the kernels of the Argan tree, indigenous only to southwestern Morocco, Argan oil is a hydrating oil comprised of essential fatty acids, including Omega oils linoleic acid and oleic acid, and tocopherol (vitamin E), a powerful antioxidant. These components of Argan oil serve as emollients, attracting and retaining hydration in the skin, and have potent anti-inflammatory properties. Argan oil is used as an emollient in a number of cosmetic and personal care products, including facial moisturizer, eye cream, lipstick, blush, sunscreen, and mascara.
Argan oil can also be used on its own as an acne treatment, scar treatment, anti-wrinkle treatment, face and body moisturizer, anti-frizz hair treatment, stretch mark treatment, and as a cuticle moisturizer.
