Definition of Argan Oil and Beauty Products That Contain Argan Oil

Definition: Argan Oil

The Argan tree comes from southwest regions of Morocco, where it can withstand harsh environments like extreme heat, drought and poor soil. It grows a round fleshy fruit that has an olive-like texture and inside there's a nut where the oil comes from.

Argan oil is believed to have medicinal benefits such as lowering cholesterol, improving circulation and building up the immune system. It has mild anti-inflammatory properties, protects the skin from free radical damage and also helps to nourish dry, hydrated skin because it's rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin E.

Try Elemis Anti-Ageing Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift Mask ($120), The Body Shop Spa Wisdom Morocco Argan Oil & Orange Blossom Body Souffle ($32.95), Aveda Green Science™ Firming Eye Creme ($99.95), Schwarzkopf Extra Care Oil Nutritive Shampoo and Conditioner ($6.79 each).

Stockists: Aveda (1300 300 054), Schwarzkopf (1800 022 219).
