Argan oil is a rare and exquisite oil meticulously pressed from the fruit kernels of the Moroccan Argan tree. It is fast absorbing and contains extremely high levels of Vitamin E and 80% fatty acids which make it perfect for healing many skin ailments as well as protecting against premature aging caused by oxidation. The active substances called triterpenoids that occur in argan oil offer amazing skin protection benefits. These include scar tissue diminishing, anti-inflammatory, sun-protective and disinfectant properties. Argan oil also contains plant sterols or sterolins that improve skin metabolism, reduce inflammation and promote excellent moisture retention.
Argan oil is made from the fruit of the argan tree. The mature fruit falls off the tree and is harvested off the ground. The hard shell is cracked and contains one to three kernels that look a bit like almonds and are very rich in oil. The organic argan oil used in Botanic Organic products is cold pressed and unrefined.
