Argan Oil Benefits
Argan is a rare oil and offers a vast number of applications in cosmetics and massage due to naturally occurring Vitamin E and antioxidant content, which contributes to its unique moisturizing and skin nourishing properties.
The oil is also rich in Oleic (C18:1) and Linoleic (C18:2) essential fatty acids that improve damaged, dry, and aging skin, restoring its glowing and healthful appearance.
The active substances called triterpenoids that occur in Argan Oil offer amazing skin repairing and shielding abilities.
Argan oil contains 0.8% unsaponifiables (a large group of compounds also known as plant sterols or sterolins). Sterolins help improve skin metabolism and restore moisture balance in the skin. Virgin Argan oil contains rare and unique in combination plant sterols Schottenol and Spinasterol, not found in other oils.
