ORGANIC ARGAN OIL
Argan oil is extracted from the Argan fruit. The fruits contain the highest concentration of the oil. The extraction process involves grinding and pressing the dried fruits to release the oil.
Argan Oil’s anti-ageing properties, due to high levels of Vitamin E and saponins (which soften the skin) are well documented.
- It helps to reduce wrinkles by restoring the skin’s water lipid layer and it also cools and soothes inflammation.
- Argan oil contains essential fatty acids, vitamin E, polyphenols (UV protection), carotenoids (Vitamin A), ferulic acid (which helps protect against UV rays due to its antioxidant properties) and triterpenoids.
- These components are important in making the body healthy, particularly the skin, hair and nails.
Omega 6 in Argan Oil
How can the topical application of Omegas help and improve your skin condition?
The topical application of Omega 6 has several hugely positive effects on the skin.
The most important benefit is that Omega 6 oil boosts lipid content and repairs the skin’s barrier function. This helps protect delicate skin, improves moisture levels, and helps the skin retain its own moisture which all leads to improved softness and elasticity.
Topical application of Omegas are particularly beneficial to dry skin, and conditions such as eczema, especially during extremely cold weather conditions, which can strip away at the skin’s lipid barrier.
