Argan oil is produced in Morocco, where it is called liquid gold and has been used for centuries. Argan tree, lat. Argania spinosa, bears large, round, green fruits. Inside them is a nut from which this oil is obtained. It looks a little darker and redder than olive oil. It is estimated that a liter of the oil requires 20 hours of labor and about 100 kg of fresh fruit.
This truly valuable oil has become one of the most sought-after natural beauty treatments. Argan oil would be of great importance in nutrition as well, but because of its high price, it is rarely found on the table for now.
The impact of this oil is great in the end so that it fully justifies and validates both its price and its nickname “liquid gold”.
Since it is most commonly used for cosmetic purposes, we can see what makes argan oil so good for beauty care. In addition to essential fatty acids, argan oil is rich in vitamins, especially vitamin E, which successfully fights free radicals. The high levels of essential fatty acids in argan oil give the skin hydration power while keeping the skin free to breathe.
Argan essential oil also promotes microcirculation and provides maximum nutrition for skin cells. As an almost perfect cosmetic, this Moroccan oil protects and nourishes the face, nails, hair and skin. It is not negligible that argan oil is very easy to use because it is a complete beauty care product and does not need any additives other than plain water.
