One of the "must have" base oils worth having in your arsenal of natural cosmetics. Due to the high content of vitamin E and antioxidants, argan oil has particularly good anti-aging and skin-restoring properties. Argan oil contains fatty acids that tighten the skin and improve its elasticity, so it is especially valued as a developing facial and chest skin care oil. At the same time, it is one of the most valuable oils for weak, slippery, brittle hair.

Argan oil quality. Important to know:
- Argan oil is quite expensive; a mature tree produces about 1ltr of oil per year; manual pressing requires up to 20 hours of work to produce 1 litre of oil, cold mechanical pressing takes 2 hours. Argan oil cosmetic products quickly became popular in France, but cosmetics are made using cheaper solvent extracted oil, the cheaper price of which is often admired. Argan oil is also often adulterated by diluting cheaper oils and adding pigments.
- Genuine quality argan oil has a specific smell, as this is the smell of the argan nuts, which naturally transfer the smell to the oil. It is the scent that is one of the proofs of the authenticity and quality of the oil. What's more, the scent is a sign that the oil is unrefined, with all its bioactive substances preserved, and is therefore much more valuable than a refined, unscented oil.
- Market research shows that, due to increasing demand (and price), argan oil is often diluted with cheaper oils or mineral oil (mineral oil). The fragrance house's argan oil is of the highest possible quality – cold-pressed, unrefined, organic certified from a sustainable, socially responsible Moroccan cooperative.
We recommend using Argan oil on the skin on its own or mixed with other oils. It absorbs more readily into wet skin, so we recommend moisturising with water or a hydrolatte;
- for skin care. Argan oil can be used to enrich creams, serums and anti-ageing masks;
- as an intensive serum, it can be used for several months instead of face cream, especially after the sunny season to reduce the negative effects of UV rays. A few drops of oil should be applied to the skin after cleansing and washing;
- for hair and scalp. Hair regains its shine and smoothness, soothes sensitive scalps, nourishes and strengthens hair roots. The oil can be used to enrich hair balms, lotions, masks and shampoo;
- for massages. Especially for facial massage;
- instead of lotion or cream after shaving – for men, or after depilation;
- for developing skin on the face and chest, and especially for those whose skin suffers from the formation of free radicals in the skin, such as the effects of smoking, sunbathing and solariums. Argan oil contains fatty acids that firm the skin and improve skin elasticity;
- for youthful acne-prone skin.
