And how the super ingredient became the must-have product on every beauty guru’s list.
In less than a decade, the previously obscure Argan oil has become one of the most talked-about and celebrated ingredients in the beauty industry. While Argan oil first gained recognition back in 2008, it’s actually been used for thousands of years by Mediterranean women. The liquid gold oil is harvested by a nut produced by Argan trees in Morocco and is loved for its hydrating and lustre-boosting qualities. Once people started realising just how powerful this unique oil is, it quickly made its way into everything from serums to moisturisers!
While Argan oil is most celebrated for its hair-transforming abilities, it’s also gaining popularity for its skin benefits too. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, because the oil was originally used to protect the skin of ancient tribes from the strong Saharan sun!
At Silk Oil Of Morocco, we’ve been using Argan Oil for everything from moisturising skin to smoothing hair. In particular, our best seller Argan Hair and Skin Treatment is the ultimate way to experience all the benefits of Argan oil in one simple product! Formulated with a high concentration of Cold Pressed Certified Organic Argan Oil, our Argan Hair and Skin Treatment is rich in vitamins, antioxidants, omega-6 and omega-9 essential fatty acids. Our multi-award winning formula is delightful to use, as it’s non-greasy, ultra-light, and infused with a divine passionfruit fragrance. It’s easily absorbed into both skin and hair, leaving you looking and feeling healthy and nourished.
Full of enriching fatty acids, rich antioxidants, linoleic acids, and vitamin A and E, the oil has such a diverse and versatile range of uses, making it the hardest working product in your beauty bag. Don’t believe us? Read on to learn more about how Silk Oil of Morocco’s Argan Hair & Skin Treatment can transform your beauty routine.
Moisturise Dry Skin
Argan oil is a multi-talented natural moisturiser, perfect for hydrating and protecting dry skin. If your skin is particularly dehydrated or prone to dry patches, gently massage a few drops of the Argan Hair and Skin Treatment into your skin. It’s non-greasy and absorbs quickly, making it perfect for on-the-go use or as a skin oil! It also helps fight free-radicals, allowing for long-term skin health and improvement.
Smooth Frizzy Hair
If you’re someone who experiences frizzy hair, dry ends, or unmanageable flyaways, Argan oil serum or argan-infused styling products can help keep those tresses in check. The high content of antioxidants, essential acids and Vitamin E help to increase hair’s elasticity, protect from UV damage, and restore shine and lustre to dull hair. And remember what we said earlier about battling free-radicals? This is particularly helpful for our hair which undergoes plenty of damage as a result of chemical treatments, heat tools, styling, and everyday pollution. Warm-up a few drops of the Argan Hair and Skin Treatment in your hands and gently brush it through your hair. The lightweight formula won’t leave a greasy finish and will instantly smooth frizziness and flyaways, while also helping to keep those locks healthy!
One benefit you may not be aware of is how beneficial Argan oil is at treating inflammation. Thanks to an epic dose of antioxidants, Vitamin E, and important actives called triterpenoids (a naturally-occurring compound from the gotu kola leaves believed to strengthen the skin), Argan oil helps give the skin some relief when it’s needed most. Whether you’re healing scars or trying to soothe redness or sunburn, a slick layer of the Argan Hair and Skin Treatment will give your skin the respite it needs.
Balance Oil Production & Treat Breakouts
If you are regularly prone to acne breakouts, Argan Hair and Skin Treatment might just be the holy grail you’re looking for. While the idea of applying oil to acne-prone skin might make you anxious, it’s not a new concept. In its purest, natural form, Argan oil is a non-comedogenic oil, meaning it won’t clog your pores. This means it helps to provide a layer of protection to ensure your skin stays hydrated without sticking to your skin like grease. This can help balance the skin's sebum production, helping to dial back oiliness long-term. When skin is properly balanced and hydrated, there is less dry skin-cell buildup, therefore lessening bacteria from forming in pores leading to breakouts. How good is science?
Promote Brow & Lash Growth
While the general shape of brows might change with the trend du jour, healthy, beautiful brows will always be on the mark. The same goes with healthy, lush lashes. If you want to nurture your brows and lashes, Argan oil can help condition and nourish your brows and lashes to give them that extra boost they need. Simply add a few drops of the Argan Hair and Skin Treatment to a clean spoolie and brush it through once a day. When styling, opt for argan-infused products for a little extra boost!
Okay, this purely a convenience thing... After all, why have a million products when just a few heavy lifters do the job? That’s why we love the Argan Hair and Skin Treatment as a quick and easy way to remove excess eyeliner and mascara. While many people reach to coconut oil to remove makeup, Argan oil is less heavy meaning it’s perfect for those with sensitive, problematic, or delicate skin. Plus, you get all the balancing and healing properties we’ve been talking about!
So there you have it. The hardest working ingredient in the beauty industry is a must-have item in your bathroom vanity, for every single step of your beauty routine. How are you going to use it?
