Argania is a flowering plant genus in which Argania spinosa otherwise called argana or argan belongs to. This tree is found in the calcareous Sous valley, a semi-desert environment in southwestern Morocco and Tindouf Algeria. The tree itself, grows to about 35 feet and has a gnarled thorny trunk (thus, spinosa). It bears a fruit with a thick and bitter peel. Within it is the sweet-smelling yet unpleasantly flavored pulp that houses two or three oil-rich seeds.
The seeds make up 25% of the weight of the entire fruit, and are packed with fatty acids. The oil extracted from them and yields between 30 to 55%, depending on the method of extraction.
Argan oil is often coined as liquid gold. This organic product is beneficial for the hair and skin. Please note that it can also ingested. In the past, argan oil was hard to attain, as it is sourced from far off locations, so only the rich could use this product. However, in the lands where this tree grows, women and men have used it for centuries to protect their skin and hair from harsh elements.
Here are some important argan oil uses.
Dry Skin Emollient
People with dry, itchy and flaky skin have to use products that soothe their discomfort and get rid of the redness. Argan oil can do all that for you. So if you have psoriasis, eczema or a naturally dry skin, you need to use argan oil on the affected areas or all over your body.
Once you step out of the shower, pat yourself dry for just a few seconds and apply LT Organics 100% Pure Argan Oil generously all over your body in gently circular movements. The fatty acids and vitamin E in argan oil will help repress the itch, shorten healing time and encourage faster cell turnover.
All Over Moisturizer
Argan oil is proven to make skin softer, hydrated and luminous with health. Due to its high fatty acid and vitamin E content, it is the best product to use, especially if you have dry and sensitive skin. Since it is made of fatty acids, you would think that it would leave a greasy sheen. However, argan oil absorbs quite easily, making it great as a moisturizer.
To help it become absorbed even faster, it would be best if you applied it with gentle circular motions. This will make it easier for the fatty acids to penetrate your pores.
Hair Conditioner And Styling Agent
