Properties of Argan Skincare Oil
Wild Wood Groves argan skin care oil is a rich, nourishing and moisturizing skin food containing no artificial colouring, perfumes or preservatives to irritate the skin.
For centuries argan has been a well-kept secret known only to Berber women in Morocco who use it to nourish their skin, hair and nails.
Argan’s anti-ageing properties, due to high levels of Vitamin E and saponins (which soften the skin) are well documented. It helps to reduce wrinkles by restoring the skin’s water lipid layer and it also cools and soothes inflammation. Its antioxidant properties contribute to the neutralization of free radicals, particularly useful in the polluted Western hemisphere. It helps cool skin that has been exposed to wind and the sun and also protects it in cold weather.
Traditionally used in Morocco (ref: Bellakhdar 1997) to soothe dry eczema, chicken pox, acne and psoriasis, it can also help to reduce scarring and prevent stretch marks. Try our Baby Blend for problem or ultra sensitive skin.
Argan is not greasy, only a few drops warmed on the fingertips are needed to moisturize and protect the complexion including the delicate skin under the eyes.
It soothes inflammation massaged into painful areas, either due to muscular strain or arthritic or rheumatic joint pain. Try our Soothe Aching Muscles Blend with argan & nigella.
Suitable for all the family, there are blends for everyone. Due to the the naturally high Vitamin E levels found in argan there is no need for preservatives in our oils.
Do not apply to broken or weeping skin.
