|Argan oil is almost exclusively produced in southwestern Morocco. Local women cooperatives extract the argan nuts in between two stones and extracted raw oil by hands in the past. It takes 3 days to make 1 liter of oil. Therefore, it is very precious.||Traditionally, argan oil was used extensively on skin to treat various conditions such as dry skin, acne, psoriasis, eczema, wrinkles, and skin inflammation. It was also used to prevent hair loss and dry hair.|
|With the improvement in technology, it permits a larger extraction yield of argan oil nowadays. Virgin argan oil is produced by Moroccan women cooperatives and their world-wide marketing activity contributes to the argan forest sustainable development.||Virgin argan oil is composed of primarily fatty acids, vitamin E (tocopherol), triterpene alcohols, sterols, squalene, ferulic acid, D-7 stigmasterol, polyphenols and triterpene alcohols. Fatty acids are mainly oleic and linoleic acid which contribute to the benefit of argan oil for skin inflammation.|

Detailed benefits of argan oil components:

|Squalene||Naturally produced by your skin, it functions like Vitamin E as an important antioxidant, reducing signs of aging. It also has many wound healing & antibacterial properties, excellent for eczema, psoriasis, and acne.|
|Polyphenols||Fight sun damage and photoaging with UV protection. Promote skin repair with anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, and free-radical fighting properties.|
|Ferulic Acid||A very rare antioxidant that's highly valued as it actually becomes more potent when exposed to sunlight.|
