Argan oil is produced from the kernels of the argan tree which grows in southwestern Morocco. It is also called the "tree of life", and the oil produced from it - the "liquid gold of desert", one of the most valuable and expensive oils in the world. The oil has been used for cosmetic purposes by the Moroccan women for hundreds of years now.
Its valuable qualities had become widely known many years later and today it is placed among the most valued plant products in cosmetic industry. The balanced composition of unsaturated fatty triglycerides and provitamin A makes the oil really unique. The essential fatty acids fight dehydration and loss of elasticity of the skin by helping the prevention and delay of newly appearing wrinkles. This effect against ageing of the skin is also enhanced by the high levels of vitamin E and polyphenols, some of the most powerful biologic antioxidants for neutralization of free radicals. They have strong anti-inflammatory effect and strengthen the UV-protection of the skin. The oil is particularly suitable prior to and after sunbathing.
