The Skin Care Benefits of Argan Oil
Argan oil is one of the most promising -- and most proven -- ingredients in skin care. While it is not a new ingredient, it is an important one which has stood the test of time.
Today we're sharing 5 key benefits of this oil. Although it is not as well known as coconut oil or jojoba oil, argan is truly a special oil.
Argan oil is found in Seed Soft Balm, Seed Advanced Botanicals Extra Moisturizing Face Cream, and in our brand new Aging Beautifully Face Serum. Argan Oil contains more antioxidant and cell regenerative properties than olive oil, grape seed oil and avocado oil combined.
When applied to the skin, it absorbs quickly, and without an oily film, leaving behind a silky and satiny feel. It also works beautifully to restore shine and luster to the hair.
Argan oil is commonly referred to as “liquid gold" — and with good reason. Not just a filler, argan oil provides the skin with many nutrients and a whole list of benefits.
Argan is highly protective.
- Argan oil is rich in phenols, making it a protective oil. It contains 200% more Vitamin E than olive oil. Argan is not just nourishing, it’s a potent antioxidant and can effectively fend off free radical damage.
Need moisture? Look no further.
- Argan oil is highly moisturizing. It is rich in Omega 6 fatty acids to help plump the skin, boost moisture levels and give a supple and healthy appearance. Choose a rich facial moisturizer with argan oil to ease dryness. You will be happy to discover that argan hydrates the skin without leaving a greasy film like other oils often do. For extra pampering, try our luxurious hand, foot, body and hair (everything!) balm.
An oil to slow aging? Yes, please!
- Argan oil may make your skin look younger. Abundant in vitamins to improve skin elasticity, argan also boasts something called triterpens, which aid in cell restructuring and can slow down the cell aging process. Because of the regenerating properties, your skin will benefit from a face oil with argan oil. Our brand new Aging Beautifully Face Serum fits the bill!
Could this oil help combat acne? Perhaps.
- Argan oil may even fight acne, as many believe that it is not only antiseptic, but anti-bacterial as well. It’s light and fast-absorbing and will not clog the pores.
Reduce inflammation with argan oil.
- Argan oil may help fight inflammation. Anecdotal evidence suggests that, when applied topically, argan oil may reduce pain, itching and swelling associated with various skin ailments.
