Rich in Vitamin E, Argan is used instead of any other moisturisers – apply morning and night to protect  and soften your skin.

Argan’s anti-oxidant properties from high Vitamin E levels contribute to the neutralisation of free-radicals, particularly useful in the polluted Western hemisphere.

Argan’s anti-ageing properties due to saponins which soften the skin, restore fluids to your skin’s lipid layer reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Argan’s anti-inflammatory properties from plant sterols cool and soothe skin that has been exposed to wind and sun, reducing dryness and redness.

Argan culinary oil is 80% unsaturated and contains eight essential fatty acids.

Argan  oil contains twice as much vitamin E as olive oil and is rich in anti-oxidants.

Argan oil contains rare plant sterols not found in other oils, which have anti-inflammatory properties, beneficial for arthritic or rheumatic conditions.

  • "I cannot praise this argan/aromatherapy oil highly enough. I had my legs waxed recently and the beauty therapist remarked on how firm my skin was. I said I body brushed every day and massaged with argan oil. There can be no doubt that my skin is they way it is because of my regime and because of including in it Ruth's wonderful creation."

  • "I have been using your Argan Rescue Serum for a year now and must say that it has made my skin wonderfully soft and clear. I am 63 so my skin, especially on my neck, needs a lot of hydration. The serum really makes a lot of difference and goes a long way. I can't live without it now!"
  • "Argan oil is the most extraordinary product I have come across. My 2 year old suffers from sporadic raw red eczema and nothing has helped. The first time he had it all over his stomach for months and months, within 2 days of using the oil the redness had gone and within three he was completely cured- it has never returned."

  • "I travel a lot and work in extreme environments and have even used my precious oil on grateful colleagues who have burnt themselves in the sun! I can honestly say that this is the best beauty product I own."

  • "Thank you again for the lavender Argan oil, it is lovely. I am treating myself to your Rescue eye serum and cream. Your Argan rescue serum is the most wonderful (and soothing) skin product that I have ever used and at 62 I have used quite a few! It is pure bliss!"
