It’s called Liquid Gold – a Miracle Beauty Elixir! But what is Argan Oil really?

Skincare-With-Argan-Oil

#Argan#Oil is native to exotic #Morocco, and is extracted from the# kernels of the #ArganTree. It has been used as a #health booster and #cosmetic treatment for ages, and it has a colorful history!

History
This tree is found only in Morocco. So rare is the tree that it has created tremendous demand for Argan Oil. But no one would have heard of it, if #Hollywood #actresses had not revealed it as their beauty secret. The rest as they say is history!

Since it is an endangered plant, the #MoroccanGovernment is taking steps to plant more of these trees. The authorities started promoting this valuable oil worldwide because it supports women’s cooperatives, providing a livelihood to thousands of women across Morocco.

The benefits of this oil are so numerous that it is universally called #LiquidGold. But its origins were pretty humble! In fact, the traditional method of argan oil #extraction involved a race, the #Berbers, of ancient Morocco who collected undigested argan pits from the waste of goats which climb the trees to eat their fruit. The pits were then ground and pressed to make the nutty oil used in #cooking and #cosmetics. Thankfully, not any more! Today, Argan Oil is #PressExtracted, with an initial #manual process that makes the end-product so precious. The process is incredibly time-intensive. It needs approximately 50 kilos of Argan#berries and 20 hours of work to produce half a litre of the finished oil!

What makes it so Valuable?
The bright golden yellow and silky smooth cosmetic argan oil is rich in beneficial #nutrients including #fattyacids and #VitaminE.
It’s good for the hair and skin, making it a popular cosmetic choice for many celebrities. It’s not just for the rich and famous, though – anyone can reap the Argan oil benefits for their body.

The antioxidants in argan oil are generally beneficial for healing skin which is irritated, cracked, damaged or even burned. It reduces inflammation, soothes pain and increases healing rate.

7. Pregnancy

Argan oil increases the elasticity of skin due to its vitamin E content. On application, it reduces chances ofdeveloping stretch marks during pregnancy.
