Argan Oil

Argan Oil is extracted from the kernels of the argan tree (Argania Spinosa), which is native to Morocco. Argan essential oil is rich in antioxidants, vitamin E and essential fatty acids, including omega-6 and omega-9. These nutrients help to nourish and protect the skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The oil is extracted using a cold-pressed method which helps to preserve the oil’s natural nutrients and antioxidants.
