Pure Argan Oil
100% Organic Cold Pressed Argan Oil imported from Morocco
This formula also includes 1% Rosemary oil. Rosemary is good for the skin and hair but it also acts as a natural preservative.
In Morocco, argan oil has culinary uses but it has become increasingly popular in other countries for cosmetic purposes. Moroccans traditionally use un-roasted Argan oil to treat skin diseases, and as a cosmetic oil for skin and hair:
"In cosmetics, Argan oil is advocated as moisturizing oil, against acne vulgaris and flaking of the skin, as well as for 'nourishing' the hair. This oil also has medicinal uses against rheumatism and the healing of burns. Externally, Argan oil is used for hair...to fortify and in the treatment of wrinkled or scaly dry skin." (Wikipedia)
The increasing popularity of Argan oil has prompted the Moroccan government to plan for increased production. Producing argan oil has helped to protect argan trees from being cut down.
The argan tree provides food, shelter and protection from desertification; the trees' deep roots help prevent desert encroachment. The canopy of argan trees also provides shade for other agricultural products, and the leaves and fruit provide feed for animals.
The argan tree also helps landscape stability, helping to prevent soil erosion, providing shade for pasture grasses, and helping to replenish aquifers.
