Description: Argan Carrier Oil is an oil produced from the seeds of the Argan tree that is valued for its cosmetic and numerous beneficial properties. Grown in North Africa and mainly in Morocco, the Argan tree grows wild in semi-desert soil, and is extremely well adapted to drought. This cosmetic grade oil has been refined to make it ideally suited for cosmetic applications.
Color: Yellow to Golden Yellow Liquid.
Aromatic Description: It has a very faint oily scent, if at all.
Common Uses: Argan Oil is prominently featured in many skincare and hair care products due to its abundance of unsaturated fatty acids (particularly Oleic and Linoleic Acids) and antioxidants (especially Vitamin E). It deeply moisturizes and replenishes dry or mature skin and is thought to stimulate hair growth by helping to counter hair breakage or splitting. This oil is also popular in nail care as a natural remedy for dry and brittle nails.
Consistency: Typical and characteristic of Carrier Oils.
