What's all this fuss about Argan oil? Some of you will know it as the miracle oil from Morocco that gives your locks the frizz-free, glowing salon look. Some of you will know it for it’s anti-ageing benefits. We’re going to talk about its remedy for sensitive skin conditions like acne, eczema and scars.
For centuries it has been produced in Morocco, from the fruit of the Argania Spinosa tree.
Interestingly, the skin in people with acne and sensitive skin has been found to be deficient in linoleic acid, the skin’s natural ingredient for healthy sebum production and renewal. Argan oil is rich in linoleic fatty acids, which provide strong moisturising and absorbent properties.
Unadulterated Argan oil is also packed with Vitamins A + E which possess anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants. For people with eczema, such properties can prevent inflammations and alleviate symptoms like itching by restoring hydration to the skin’s barrier function.
Help yourself with this resourceful remedy for sensitive skin with pure Argan oil. For example, use it to nourish sensitive skin after exfoliation in a facial.
It is vital that the oil you use is unrefined, pure and has traceability to the manufacturing source. At Maison D’argan, we recognise that even the tiniest adulteration can exacerbate your sensitive skin condition. That’s why our journey begins when fruit falls from the Argan tree right through to the ethical community projects we run with Moroccan Berber women.
Argan oil is clearly a beauty staple for people with sensitive skin and beyond! Just be sure to source yours from a brand that manufactures at the source, ethically, and without dependence on middlemen!
