What is argan oil, exactly?

Argan oil is expressed from the seeds of the argan tree, native to an area in southwestern Morocco. “The long-standing practice involves removing the thick peel and fleshy pulp of the argan fruit and then cracking the nut by hand to obtain the oil-rich kernels inside. The kernels are then ground and pressed to express pure, unfiltered argan oil, and then decanted and filtered to produce an even clearer oil.

The end result is an extremely nourishing oil that easily penetrates the skin to boost moisture and activate the creation of natural lipids (aka fats) to protect the skin barrier.

Since argan oil is relatively light, it can be used on most skin types and across the board when it comes to hair textures.
