Made from the kernels that grow on argan trees, which are native to Morocco, argan oil is rich in omega fatty acids, vitamin E and linoleic acids. At California Pure Naturals, we use argan oil in many of our skin care products because of its ability to improve the health of skin, hair, and nails.
Benefits of Argan Oil for Skin
Women from Morocco have long known the powerful benefits of argan oil for skin and argan oil for your face. Read on to learn more about its many benefits.
Protects from Sun Damage
Protecting your skin from the sun is extremely important to prevent premature aging. The antioxidant activity in argan oil may help protect the skin from free radical damage caused by the sun including helping prevent burns and hyperpigmentation.
The most common use for argan oil is as a skin moisturizer. Due to large amounts of vitamin E, which is a fat-soluble antioxidant, it can help improve the retention of water in the skin. And, argan oil absorbs quickly and does not leave your skin feeling greasy.
Argan oil has been used by many as an anti-aging treatment. A recent study conducted with postmenopausal women found that a combination of oral and cosmetic argan oil led to a significant increase in the elasticity of the skin.
Reduces Oiliness and Treats Acne
It may seem counterintuitive that oil can reduce oiliness, but argan oil has sebum-reducing capabilities to reduce oiliness of the skin. Sebum helps keep the skin and hair moisturized, but when you have too much sebum, it contributes to oily skin and acne.
One study found that a twice-daily application of products that contained argan oil significantly reduced the sebum activity and oiliness within just four weeks providing a smoother and calmer complexion.
Prevents and Reduces Stretch Marks
Stretch marks are common during pregnancy, but many people have them. One 2016 study found that a water-in-oil cream containing argan oil improved skin elasticity, which helped prevent and treat stretch marks early on.
