BOTANICAL NAME: Argania spinosa
EXTRACTION: Cold pressed
DESCRIPTION: Argan trees are found in the semi-desert region of Morocco. The trees are mid-sized, growing to be approximately 10 feet tall, and can live up to 200 years old. Argan trees produce a nut that is rich in oil and is uncovered by removing the fleshy pulp of the tree's fruit and breaking the nut to release the kernels inside. These kernels are cold pressed in order to obtain the oil, boasting a number of health benefits. The process of making argan oil is typically done by local Moroccan women in co-ops, giving them the opportunity to earn income for their families. The oil has high levels of vitamin E, antioxidants and fatty acids which work to protect and sooth skin while also keeping it smooth and firm. This oil is a miraculous moisture treatment and is suitable for those with oily skin.
KEY COMPONENTS: Vitamin E (gamma-tocopherol, alpha-tocopherol), oleic acid, linoleic acid, phytosterols (schottenol, spinasterol).
