Argan Nut Oil (Organic)

 

INCI NAME: Argania spinosa

EWG SCORE: 0

INGREDIENT PROFILE:

Golden, translucent oil that a light, but distinct nutty smell.

DERIVED FROM:

The Argan Oil we use in Sally B's Skin Yummies is extracted from the nut of the fruit of the Moroccan argan tree through a cold pressed and unrefined process.

However, goats were once used to aid in production of Argan Oil, since the shell of the nut is tough to crack. Goats love the black olive-like fruit it produces, but not the nut inside. It either gets spit out or, well, naturally discarded out the other end, leaving the shell cracked, softened, and easy to open.

HISTORY:

Also known as Moroccan green gold, Argan Oil is said to be the rarest oil in the world. In a lengthy, week long process, the oil is extracted from the seeds of the Argania Spinosa Tree’s fruit, which is grown in the desert of Morocco. The oil is extremely abundant in unsaturated fatty acids, linoleic acid, and Vitamin E, making it a great product for hydration and to neutralize free radicals, which helps slow the aging process. It also has a natural sebum regulating action that balances the skin's oil production, alleviating oily skin.  While a century old skin care product, customers today remark that it excels at alleviating signs and symptoms of eczema and psoriasis.
