Argan Oil, Virgin Organic (Deodorized)
Argan oil is noted as "liquid gold" for the skin, and not just because of its beautiful color. It is loaded with antioxidant and skin nourishing properties that make it excellent for daily use in anti-aging skincare.
Not only is Argan oil famed for its anti-aging and antioxidant properties, but it is also well known for its ability to soothe rashes and skin breakouts. Many individuals use this in oily/acneic skin serums because it will not clog pores! We actually use this for that very purpose in our Oily/Acneic Skin Serum and have received many glowing reviews because it works so well!
With unrefined Argan oil there is often a pungent aroma that many will dismiss the oil for. Ours is deodorized but still holds its wonderful anti-aging properties.
With our moderate experience in skincare we have noted that argan oil is not only softening to the skin, but also is wonderful in DIY Hot Oil treatments for the hair.
Our Argan oil is cold press extracted and is a true labor of love like many of our carrier oils. The fruit is first gathered by hand and then sun dried so that the nut may be removed from the fruit. The nuts are then broken to remove the tiny kernel within that are gathered and then crushed by hand. The crushing creates a thick paste that is then sent for pressing to extract all of the oil from the paste.
We were informed that a single tree can actually produce about 30 kilograms of fruits which makes only a single kilogram of the beloved Argan Oil. That is a lot of fruit and such a small amount of carrier oil!
Personal note: There is very little if any aroma to this specific carrier oil. The color is a light yellow gold color that has a wonderful light texture and absorbs easy into the skin. I find that it penetrates the skin very well and offers a lot of moisturization, antioxidant and anti-aging protection when formulated in cleansers and other skincare preparations.
