INCI: Argania Spinosa
Argan is native to Morocco where the oil has a history of use as a restorative and reparative ingredient for both skin and hair. The oil has been favored as an aid to minimize acne scarring and to help maintain a fair complexion and skin elasticity.
It isn’t without reason argan oil is often characterized as liquid gold. It contains a treasure trove of skincare nutrients and benefits. With over 75% unsaturated fatty acids, argan is almost as rich in unsaturated fatty acids as another of our favorites: sacha inchi oil.
After hundreds of years of use as a treatment for wrinkled and extremely dry skin, argan oil is living up to its long-standing reputation with glowing results from the modern scientific study.
Argan’s components include linoleum acid, oleic acid, palmitic & stearic acids, vitamin E, phenolic compounds (ferulic acid, syringic, and vanillic), triterpenic alcohols, sterols, caretonoids, and more. It also has a natural content of vitamin E.
We love this oil for its multiple benefits and have included it in MIDNIGHT BEAUTY
, rich revitalising serum.
