What's actually in Argan Oil?
You may have heard of Moroccan Argan oil. Everyone is using it on their hair, skin, and nails. I know you are wondering “what makes Argan oil so great?” Well, it has various uses that aim to improve different parts of your body. Argan oil is rich in oleic acid, linoleic acid, and Vitamin E. If you don't already know what these are, let me explain exactly what they do to actually help your hair, skin, and nails, individually.
Oleic acid is a non-essential fatty acid, which means it is something that is not naturally produced by your body. This fatty acid has anti-inflammatory and hydrating properties. Therefore, this helps treat and prevent fine lines and wrinkles. It also improves skin barrier permeability, which moisturizes your skin and then retains that new moisture.
Argan oil also includes linoleic acid (also known as Vitamin F) is a fatty acid that your body normally produces. It strengthens your skin barrier, which then protects your skin from the sun and free-radicals that would typically cause sun damage. As a result, your healthier skin barrier will lock in moisture and keep out UV rays and pollutants. In addition, you will notice reduced signs of aging. Linoleic acid also assists in treating acne-prone skin as it reduces inflammation when applied topically.
The last ingredient in Moroccan Argan oil is Vitamin E. This vitamin is rich in antioxidants, which promotes skin repair. In particular, Vitamin E helps treat inflammation and moisturize dry skin and hair. This is what helps the oil prevent and treat signs of aging, fights hyperpigmentation (that causes dark spots), hydrates skin, and shields skin from other free-radicals.
Let's be honest, Argan Oil is a great product! It's a single product that provides so many benefits to different aspects of your body, rather than purchasing separate items to obtain the same results.
