“Liquid god” and “liquid gold”. Such glorious name calling could only mean one thing. Argan oil is undoubtfully, one of the most precious treasures nature has to offer to humans.
The origins of the desert’s miracle
Deeply rooted in Moroccan land for over 1.6 million years, the Argania Spinosa tree, from which argan oil originates, is the pearl of Morocco. And if it ever covered all of North Africa, it is now growing only in a few areas southwest of Morocco, in the semi-erratic zone of the Sahara. As it is one of the rarest, most beneficial and most expensive oils in the world – it is not accidental that it is also called “Tree of Life” – since 1999 and at the same time, being protected by UNESCO as a world cultural treasure.
Its value has not only to do with its countless benefits but also with its relatively small output compared to its large demand worldwide. This limited export volume is due to two reasons. Firstly, many of the trees are in inaccessible, rugged areas where a vehicle cannot reach easily, and so many fruits remain unpicked. Secondly, the oil extraction is mainly done with traditional methods and is a difficult, time-consuming and painful process.
Consider that it takes 15-20 manhours to produce 1 liter of oil! Men are busy harvesting the fruits, however, most of the argan oil production is basically a female affair, and in particular the cooperative of Berry’s Amazig womens tribe.
Beauty and Argan Oil
Sometimes what sounds too good to be true…actually is…
Argan Oil has countless beneficial properties and beneficial effects on health and beauty.
Firstly, it can be used as cooking oil produced from roasted pips (the cosmetic oil is produced from the unroasted pips) which has rich antioxidant benefits to the body.
Perhaps it would not be an exaggeration to claim that it is the elixir of the Moroccan longevity.
Furthermore, its cosmetic action hides treasures, since the wonderful Moroccan oil is a rich source of vitamins A and E, antioxidants and essential fatty acids Ω-3 and Ω-6.
As a matter of fact, it has ten times more vitamin E than olive oil, being the most nutritious, moisturizing and anti-wrinkle oil we encounter in nature. The vitamin A it contains, offers elasticity to the epidermis by increasing collagen synthesis.
In addition, Argan moisturizes and nourishes -even the driest- skin by “locking” the moisture inside it, while protecting it during cold weather. This softening and toning action makes it ideal for your hands, especially the area around hangnails and nails.
As for those dry and damaged hair of yours, you still seem to have every reason to be grateful for it, leaving them shiny and revitalized from the root to the edges.
In all these, you may add its regenerative action, since argan oil significantly reduces imperfections and scars while soothing irritations. In Morocco, it is used for millions of years for healing wound and burns.
The tree of Youth
It has been clinically proven that the daily use of argan oil effectively combats the signs of aging in the epidermis. By neutralizing the free radicals and regenerating the cells, the argan oil restores elasticity to the skin, gives it a firmer feel and restores its youthful appearance.
More importantly, it is extremely effective in preventing and treating wrinkles and fine lines.
Recognizing the miraculous action of moroccan oil, FREZYDERM could only make the most of it by adding it as an ingredient in Anti-Wrinkle Rich Day and Anti-Wrinkle Rich Night Creams, respectively. The daily creams that “fill” the wrinkles from within, for a glamorous, youthful complexion. However, argan oil has a remedial effect on the eye area, reducing drastic wrinkles and fine lines. So, you cannot miss it as an ingredient from Eye Cream to give you a visibly youthful and relaxed look.
The list of the argan oil benefits seems never ending…
No matter how many pages we fill, it rather seems impossible to capture its invaluable value.
Only if you see with your eyes and feel with your hands its magic action on your skin, will you understand why the world of cosmetology glorifies its name in 5 continents.
“A trial run will convince you” is probably the most appropriate tip…
