Our 100% pure organic Argan oil comes exclusively from the Southwestern part of Morocco and is produced in a traditional fashion by the Berber women of Morocco. For centuries, Berber women have used Argan oil as a way to enhance and protect their beauty, ranging from their skin and hair to their nails.
If it works for them, it will work for you and here is why…
Berber women are exposed to the harsh climate of the desert, and that means a great deal of sun exposure and harsh winds. Yet, thanks to Argan oil, Berber women are able to keep their skin, hair and nails looking healthy and full of vitality.
It has been in recent years that the West has discovered what Berber women have know for centuries; Argan oil is amazing and can serve to transform appearance. This amazing, nourishing oil has anti-aging properties and is an excellent all around beauty product.
Additionally, Argan oil is being used to treat skin conditions and diseases including psoriasis, eczema, acne and general skin irritations. Some have even gone so far as to proclaim that Argan oil is one of the single greatest cosmetic discoveries in the last several decades!

Argan oil is special, but what gives it such a broad range of uses and imbues it with such nourishing properties? Rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, Argan oil is rich in the kind of nutrition that skin, hairs and nails need to stay healthy and looking their best.
With twice as much as vitamin E as olive oil and essential fatty acids such as omega 6 and omega 9, Argan oil improves skin, hair and nail health virtually instantaneously. It also contains other impressive compounds, ranging from squalene and carotenes to phenolic, steric and palmitic oils. The uses for Argan oil are nothing short of extraordinary, as this versatile and healing oil can be used to reduce wrinkles, fight stretch marks and even provide important nourishment to hair.
Scientists have studied Argan oil and have been impressed by what they've discovered. Loaded with nutrition, Argan oil is more than a simple moisturizer. The market is full of products that can moisturize with varying levels of effectiveness, but Argan oil does far more than simply moisturize. Argan oil can actually combat some of the damage done from the sun's UV rays.
Let's take a look at the different ways that Argan oil can help improve your skin, hair and nail health.
Argan oil is simply loaded with vitamin E. Vitamin E works as a powerful antioxidant in the body, as it helps combat the harmful effects of oxidation in the body. Further, Argan oil also addresses other negative environmental impacts as well.
How? Vitamin E in the skin helps the skin to form a de-facto waterproof barrier. Vitamin E keeps the lipids in your skin from breaking down due to pollution and UV exposure from the sun.
The cosmetic industry is well aware of this phenomenon, and this is why they place synthetic vitamin E in a range of products. Yet, this synthetic vitamin E isn't as effective as the real thing, especially where Argan oil is concerned.
Another key aspect of Argan oil and its ability to promote healing of the skin, hair and nails is due to the fact it is very rich in essential fatty acids (EFAs). This oil has been proven to be highly beneficial when applied topically to the skin as well as hair and nails.
A lack of essential fatty acids can cause a range of problems in the body. Current science sees EFAs as being essential for proper brain and heart function as well as for addressing skin issues ranging from dry skin to more serious issues such as eczema and psoriasis. The mechanism behind this is that EFAs reduce inflammation and pain, and this helps address a host of skin problems and conditions. Further, having proper levels of EFAs in your body will serve to decrease wrinkles and improve skin elasticity.
What to repair some of the damage done to your skin thanks to the sun? The high levels of EFAs contained in Argan oil are exactly what you need! UV exposure decreases the levels of EFAs in your skin, but Argan oil can replace those EFAs and Argan oil can even help reduce scarring as well!
The high levels of essential fatty acids in Argan oil can also work wonders for hair as well. The EFAs found in Argan oil soak in and can restore hair strength and vitality in the process. Even a small amount of Argan oil can smooth out brittle hair. And for those suffering from scalp issues of any kind, such as dandruff, Argan oil will quickly make a significant difference!
The impressive ways that vitamin E and EFAs continue to Argan oil’s benefits are undeniable but there are yet still other compounds found in this amazing oil. Carotenes are found in nature in vegetables and fruits. You might not be instantly familiar with carotenes, but they are the precursor to the vitamin A, which is also known as Retinol.
Retinol has received a good deal of attention in recent years from the media and the cosmetic industry. The reason for this is that retinol is quite the effective anti-aging ingredient that combats sun damage, which means that it has been placed in a range of beauty products. Retinol improves the appearance of skin, hair and nails, and it can be found in abundance in Argan oil.
Squalene is another vital compound found in Argan oil. Squalene, like carotenes, is also naturally occurring and found in plants as well as animals. It serves to fight skin irritation and quickly penetrates the skin. To date, squalene has been used to treat scar tissue and even prevent stretch marks and may even be effective in addressing hair loss.
Oil does not make your skin oily. What makes skin oily is clogged pores, which is caused by sebum. Luckily, Argan oil regulates sebum, and that means freedom from oily skin and even acne as well! Argan oil is powerful and that means that just a little can go a very long way.
When using Argan oil for the first time, it is suggested that you put only a few drops on your clean skin, particularly your face, just before going to bed. Why? This approach will allow you to get great results and see for yourself just how much better your look in the morning.
On your hair, Argan oil can be applied directly to your hair and scalp. Here is what we recommend: once you have dried your hair to a damp state massage a small amount of Argan oil into your hair. For individuals with scalp conditions, we recommend massaging Argan oil into your scalp as well. Next wrap your hair in a warm towel for about thirty minutes, after that either leave in over night or wash your hair once again. Repeat this process once or twice a week, and you will have far healthier and more beautiful hair.
Argan oil can be somewhat expensive, and this is due to two reasons. The first is the fact that the cultivation of Argan oil is labor intensive and the second reason is that the Argan tree is rare. UNESCO has acknowledged the tremendous value of the Argan tree and is currently working with women operated cooperatives in Morocco to produce the oil in a sustainable fashion.
In 2002, the Moroccan government established female cooperatives specifically for the production of Argan oil. Due to these cooperatives, the Berber women of South Morocco have a reliable and fair income. While there are counterfeit Argan oil products on the market, we work directly with these cooperatives established by the Moroccan government. As a result, we can provide you with only 100% organic Argan oil directly from the source.
