What is Pure Moroccan Argan Oil and How Does it Work

Organic pure Moroccan Argan Oil is liquid gold

While travelling, I discovered pure Moroccan Argan Oil, for the first time. A friend who produces beautiful skincare recommended it. I tried a few drops every day on my skin and was very pleased with the results. I found that my skin was soft and hydrated. Before this my skin looked and felt quite dry and flaky.

Pure Argan Oil is high in vitamin E and fatty acids that moisturise skin. Argan oil is high in antioxidants that help to fight free radicals and protect skin from damage. This helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It has great anti-aging properties.

I also discovered that pure, certified organic Argan Oil is nice to use for skin that is sensitive. There is so much more effort that goes into growing a certified organic crop. The farming processes are pesticide free, sustainable and ethical for workers. No chemical processes are used to extract the oil. Synthetic or lower quality oil could irritate skin with additives or chemicals.

Less processing of the extracted oil gives a better product.

Where is Argan grown?

Argan trees only grow in Morocco. Moroccan cooperatives care and process the crop. Local communities farm and reap the benefits too.

The Argania Spinosa tree grows tall with roots that run deep into the Earth. This helps to stabilise the arid land where they grow.

The long history of this oil is well known in Morocco. The rest of the World is only now realising how good it is in skincare. As a valued crop, Moroccan Argan groves aren't cut down to grow other crops, and survive to live another day.

Isn't Argan Oil too heavy to put on my skin?

One of the many great benefits of pure Moroccan Argan oil is that it doesn’t clog skin pores. The comodogenic rating shows how clogging an oil is on skin. A low rating of between 0 to 3 means that there is a low likelihood of clogging pores. A rating of 5 means that it may clog skin pores.

Argan oil has a comodogenic rating of zero. It's unlikely to clog skin pores.

Hero ingredient

Skincare products need to list the ingredients by order of quantity on product labels. Check where Argan falls on the list of ingredients. If it's low down, then there's only a small amount in your skincare product.

Beware also a hero statement on skincare product labels. There might only be a tiny amount. Check that the label matches the ingredients listed.

Can I use pure and organic Argan Oil on sensitive skin?

Dermatologists recommend that a common cause of skin sensitivity is fragrance.

Fragrances come in many forms. Essential oils have a beautiful scent derived from the flower, leaves or bark of the plant. I love essential oils for their wonderful scent and health-giving benefits. But as much as I love essential oils, for some it can cause sensitivities. Pure Argan Oil is transparent - that’s all there is to it.

There are no additives or fragrances in Blossom Pure Moroccan Argan Oil. It’s pure and simple making it a very safe oil to apply on sensitive skin. Fewer ingredients mean there are less chances of a sensitive rection.

Sensitised skin can also be affected by some preservatives. The compounds found in organic Argan Oil are:

  • carotenes
  • sterols
  • triterpene alcohols and
  • polyphenols.

These compounds act as natural antioxidants and preservative.

Argan Oil scent

Organic Argan Oil is rich in Linoleic Acid, also known as Omega 6. Oleic acid is also found in Argan Oil giving it a scent reminiscent of Olive oil. Omega fatty acids play a vital role in keeping a healthy membrane of skin cells. They are vital in cell formation through the whole life cycle. I find that the scent is noticeable for a few seconds only and then I become used to it. The health benefits to my skin are more important to me.

How much Argan Oil will I need to use to moisturise my skin and hair each day?

A few drops of Argan Oil is all that’s needed on hair, skin or nails to moisturise and restore to a healthy condition. A little goes a long way. The main benefits of pure Argan Oil in hair care are that it:

Conditions

Pure Argan Oil improves hair manageability by adding softnesss and shine.

Repairs damaged hair

Rich in fatty acids and Vitamin E that help repair damage by heat styling and chemical treatment.

Stimulates hair growth

Gentle massage with Argan Oil can improve the health of the hair follicle.
