Argan oil has been increasingly spreading worldwide, especially with great recommendation from celebrities like Oprah. Argan oil is an extraction from the Argan tree. It is most commonly known as the Moroccan Miracle oil. It is said to prevent wrinkles, sooth rough skin, provides shine to dry hair, and many anti-aging effects. But what makes argan oil so effective? What makes it different from all other oils when it comes to beauty benefits?
There are so many beauty products all over the world. Avon, Mac, and many more; the beauty industry is booming with competition. So the question is how can Argan oil stand out?
Argan oil is very easy to use. You do not need cotton for application; you can just apply it directly to your face, hair, skin and cuticles. Plus, the oil is light and not that sticky unlike most oils and lotion. This is one appeal that will attract people to using it. It also has a nutty aroma that is very soothing for the smell. So, let’s talk about more technical terms. Argan oil has unsaturated fatty acids that is very helpful to the skin. It can provide the right amount of minerals that the skin needs for its glowing effect. The fatty acids also help the skin to cure any ailments faster than normal. Aside from that, the virgin argan oil also possesses vitamin E and omega-6 fatty acids that help our skin to be healthier. Vitamin E is known to give our skin that glow that we would need. Because of all the pollutants that we have all around us, it is very difficult to protect our skin. Omega-6 fatty acids are called linoleic acid and it has anti-inflammatory properties that help the skin be younger every day.
It is also said that for centuries, Moroccan women have used argan oil to protect their skin, nail and nails from the harsh conditions of the environment. As we all know, the definition of beauty and appearance dated back centuries before. Cleopatra has her own definition of beauty. African tribes of South Africa also have their own definition of beauty.
So, if this oil has been used as a beauty regimen for centuries before us, how come it is not as popular as it should be? There can be many reasons for that, commercialism is one. The Moroccan women did not advertise their use of the argan oil as their protective shield to the environment. Instead, they used it as a necessity that has been passed on from one generation to another. It was just a few years ago that its magic has hit the mainstream public that its popularity begins to rise.
So, if you want to have an everlasting skin like these Moroccan women, why not try virgin argan oil and see results!
