Argan Oil a True Beauty

If you have yet to try Argan oil, the beauty secret of Moroccan women, here is the scoop.

Argan oil is produced from the kernels of the argan tree which grows only in southwestern Morocco where it has been used by the women there for centuries.  It is valued for its nutritive, cosmetic and medicinal properties and holds anti-aging benefits when used as skin care.  This is because Argan oil is rich in antioxidants, essential fatty acids and contains high levels of vitamin E.

Argan oil is light, moisturizing and effective at fighting signs of aging and sun damage when used as a moisturizer or treatment.  It can also be used to soften cuticles and as a hot oil treatment for hair.
