About Argan Oil
Argan Oil is exceptionally softening, nourishing, and moisturizing, and it is high in fatty acids, antioxidants, and natural tocopherols, which help preserve skin cell integrity, restore the skin’s barrier, and prevent the skin from aging.
Argan oil is often used as a moisturizer in lotions, soaps, and hair conditioners. It can be applied topically or ingested orally with daily supplements for a moisturizing effect. This is largely thanks to its abundance of vitamin E, which is a fat-soluble antioxidant that can help improve water retention in the skin.
Argan oil contains a large number of healing properties, including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Both help reduce symptoms for a number of different inflammatory skin conditions like psoriasis and rosacea.
In a 2013 study, Argan Oil was found that the antioxidant activity in argan oil helped protect the skin against free radical damage caused by the sun. This prevented burns and hyperpigmentation as a result (1).
Hormonal acne is often the result of excess sebum thatâ€™s caused by hormones. Argan oil has anti-sebum effects, which can effectively regulate amounts of sebum on the skin which can help to treat several types of acne and promote a smoother, calmer complexion.
One of argan oilâ€™s traditional uses is to treat skin infections. Argan oil has both antibacterial and fungicidal properties. This gives it the capability to help treat and prevent both bacterial and fungal skin infections.
