Argan oil has been one of the most talked about products in the beauty industry for a while now. Known as “liquid gold”, more than 80% of argan oil consists of unsaturated fatty acids, including Omega-9 and Omega-6, and is rich in vitamin E. Extracted from the kennels of the argan tree in Morocco, argan oil is well-known as natural anti-oxidant and helps to smooth and care for the skin.
Argan oil is valued for its nutritive, cosmetic and healing properties. Experts believe that argan oil can help with many skin conditions like dry skin, wrinkles, psoriasis, eczema and even acne. The women of Morocco have sworn by the power of argan oil for years, which probably explains why it’s much pricier than similar oils like olive oil, walnut oil and avocado oil. But if argan oil is bound to aid in troublesome skin, isn’t it worth the splurge?
Here’s a list of beauty products rich in argan oil that are readily available:
