Argan Argania spinosa oil is rich and deeply nourishing with the capacity to support the overall vitality of the skin and hair. It is an emollient, often used as the moisturizing ingredient in conditioners, balms, and serums.
Native to the Atlas mountain range in southern Morocco, the essential oil comes from kernels inside the pits of argan fruit. Argan trees can live for 150 to 200 years. Their deep penetrating root systems allow for long, fruitful life spans, even in very dry climates. Aura Cacia Organic Argan Oil comes from the womens cooperatives of southern Morocco. The oil is cold-pressed and certified organic.
Argan oil is fairly stable, has a slightly nutty aroma and is compatible with many skin types.
The oil contains skin-rejuvenating lipids, including omega-9 oleic and omega-6 linoleic acids. Argan oil is high in linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid, which contributes to its absorbability and weight.
