Argan Oil.

Much prized for its moisturising effects upon skin and its ability to repair dry, damaged hair, our cold-pressed Argan Oil is 100% pure and organic. A rich source of essential fatty acids and age-defying vitamin E, it promotes natural healing, brings softness to your skin and is a powerfully effective conditioner for hair. (Sustainably produced by organic farmers in Morocco.)

For generations, people in North Africa have used argan oil to moisturise skin, to promote natural healing and to condition dry or damaged hair. It's only relatively recently that it has been embraced by western cultures but now, people throughout the world are recognising its impressive restorative powers.

Organic, cold-pressed argan oil is a rich source of vitamin E, simple proteins and essential and non-essential fatty acids including oleic acid (omega-9). This unique combination brings rapid relief to dry skin and acts as wonderfully effective conditioner, delivering moisture and a healthy lustre to damaged hair. It can be used on the face, hands, fingernails and indeed anywhere that would benefit from added softness and hydration.

On the skin: apply a few drops of organic, cold-pressed argan oil to the hands, rub them together and then smooth gently into the skin wherever required. Be careful to avoid the eyes and any broken skin. When applied, it absorbs readily into the skin and does not leave any greasy residue.

Argan oil can be used safely on all skin types but works especially well on dry skin. It can also help to relieve some of the symptoms of eczema and many women use it as a natural treatment for stretch marks. For men, it makes a luxurious and skin-nourishing aid to shaving, whilst for women, it's an ideal way of reviving the skin as part of a nightly cleansing regime.

On the hair: apply organic argan oil to dry or damp hair. Rub a few drops between your palms and fingers and then work well into the hair, being careful to treat the full length of the hair and the scalp. Argan oil can be used safely on all hair types but is particularly beneficial for dry and damaged hair.

100% cold-pressed argan oil is made using a combination of traditional methods to harvest and prepare the kernels and modern mechanical means to express the oil from within.

The fruit of the argan tree (Argania spinosa) is harvested and the hard nut inside is cracked to allow the kernels to be removed. These are then inspected for quality and cold-pressed to extract the oil. (The fruit pulp is used to feed farm animals.) The use of traditional methods by skilled Berber women for growing and processing argan oil provides reliable employment and security for their families.

It's interesting to note that growing demand for argan oil is now helping to reverse more than a century of decline in the extent of local argan forests, which had been badly affected by over-grazing and intensive farming in the surrounding areas.
