Argan oil – Liquid gold

This weeks beauty tips – How to achieve Natural Beauty – Using Argan oil

 

 

Why is Argan oil so amazing?

 

 

I have recently become an Argan oil convert, I truly love this product … it really is that good !!   Argan oil in its purest form is a highly effective all round beauty product and will easily simplify your beauty routine. There really isn’t much this oil won’t do, which is why it is commonly known as liquid gold. Argan oil is full of essential fatty acids, anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals that will moisturise, hydrate, improve elasticity, and brighten your skin. Its primary function is promoting healthy hair, skin, and nails, so there are multiple uses for this multi tasking little gem. It can also be used as a leave on conditioner, hair treatment, to strengthen nails and soften cuticles, a make up remover the list goes on … and on.

To give you a little background the fruits of the argan tree are nut sized and covered by a thick peel. This peel covers a pulpy flesh, which covers a small-shelled nut. Lastly found in this little nut are one to three oil filled kernels, getting to these kernels is a bit of a process and its all done by hand. The method starts by drying the fruit after which the pulp is removed, the argan nut is then cracked to reach the kernels, which are ground and pressed. This unfiltered oil is decanted and left to rest for up to two weeks. Phew !! It is time consuming and unfortunately efforts to speed it up with mechanics have failed. The argan tree only grows in Southwestern Morocco and due to the huge increase in popularity the Moroccan government has planned for increased annual production. Thank you for thinking ahead guys !!

Luckily argan oil is a natural oil so it doesn’t have to be a super expensive skincare choice, another tick. The bottle I have was $59.00, and as 1 drop will go a very long way it will last a long time. ( Unless you bath in it, which is tempting ). Lastly if you decide to give it a try look for pure and preservative-free oil if you can, it doesn’t need a lot of extra ingredients to work its magic.
