Argan Extract

The oil of Argan, potentised to maximise the lipophilic content for Anti-aging, Anti-irritant, Anti-oxidant/radical scavenging properties with a moisturising and protective core, to help prevent moisture loss from the skin and linings of the nose, lungs and digestive system.

Triterpenoids, found in the unsaponifiable fraction of Argan oil are also biologically active substances. The main ones are tirucallol, beta-amyrin, butyrospermol, and lupeol which are cicatrising, skin protecting, sun protective and disinfecting.

Historical Usage

Moroccans have been using Argan oil as a skin moisturiser and hair conditioner since ancient times. Phoenicians in as early as 1550 B.C. have recorded the use of Argan Oil by locals to heal and beautify their bodies.

In the 13th Cenury, Ibn Al Baytar, a Muslim botanist, scientist, pharmacist and physician described the tree in his botanical studies.

In 1510 African explorer Leo Africanus came across the Argan Oil when he was traveling across Morocco. From there, the oil entered Europe where only the rich and wealthy class had access to this expensive, rare and exotic oil.

Due to the extraordinary characteristics it is considered to be one of Morocco's miraculous resources and is known locally by the Berber people, as the Tree of Life because it helps make life possible for many creatures in the semi-arid desert of South Morocco.

Traditionally the oils was used as a protective agent in diseases of the liver and blood circulation, such as high chloesterol and arteriosclerosis. The essential Fatty acids help to prevent loss of moisture from the skin, and linings of the nose, lungs and digestive system, and brain.
