Beauty Highlight: Argan Oil!

Since Argan oil is becoming a popular ingredient in many new hair products and is mentioned by Oprah’s hairstylist Andre Walker as the hair product for chemically treated hair, I think it is time to take a closer look at what it can do for you and where it is coming from.

For who?
– women with afro-american hair, dull hair, curly hair, chemically treated hair, damaged hair
– pregnant women
– women who suffer from acne or oily skin
– women who suffer from brittle nails
– women with an aging skin

What is Argan oil’s origin?
The 100% natural, nutrient-rich oil is extracted from the seeds of the Argan tree, which only grows in one region of the world (and nowhere else), Southern Morocco.
The trees are relics of the earth’s Tertiary Period (over 1.6 million years ago) and the oil has been used for centuries for medicinal, cosmetic, and culinary purposes.

The unique composition of vitamin E, phenols, carotenes, squalene and essential fatty acids makes it well known for its anti-aging, moisturizing and anti-oxidant effects. It has been scientifically proved that Argan oil is able to correct the age related deficiencies in skin that cause dehydration and loss of skin elasticity.

It is found to contain 700 mg per kilogram of tocopherols that is twice the amount found in olive oil. Also it’s a natural antioxidant and can stimulate intracellular oxygenation. This helps neutralize the free radicals and protects the soft tissue. The nutrient content of the skin is restored with the help of Argan oil tropical application.

The versatility of Argan oil:

For your skin
For the normal skin, Argan oil reduces wrinkle, softens the skin and has also shown to increase the elasticity and tightening of the skin. Benefits of Argan oil for skin also include regeneration of the skin by revitalizing the cell functions that prevent early skin aging due to sun, pollution, stress, smoking, etc.

For pregnant women
Argan oil is perfect to reduce stretch marks and is applied during pregnancy and after delivery.
Suffering from an oily skin or acne? Even these women will find their solution also since Argan oil reduces skin irritation and inflammation but also reduces blemishes of acne or chicken pox scars.

For your nails
Beautiful and strong nails are these days key for a pretty feminine hand. Women with brittle nails can make their nails stronger by application of Argan oil.

For your hair
Say goodbye to frizzy and dry hair with the use of 1-2 drops of Argan oil applied to your hair. The result: silky hair, controls frizz, shiny hair to dull hair, damage prevention, improves elasticity and reduces hair loss due to breakage. Argan Oil even sooths the internal body such as pain due to rheumatism and arthritis and has a positive effect against cholesterol and atherosclerosis.
