Why use Argan Oil?
Argan oil is high in Vitamin E as well as other nutrients which provide anti-aging and beautifying benefits. It is said to restore the skin’s hydro-lipid layer which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
So just what are these nutrients in Argan oil and what do they do for us?
Vitamin E: A powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory for sensitive skin, UV protection**. Neutralizes free radicals
**this is not a sun block but can counteract damage to cell membranes caused by sun exposure
Vitamin F (Omega 3, 6): anti-aging and anti-dryness of skin
Phenols: anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, powerful against fungus and bacteria, activates blood circulation^, activates Vitamin C
^when Argan Oil is applied to the skin you may notice a redness appear. DO NOT be alarmed. This is due to the oil activating your blood circulation right to the very last capillary. This is a good thing, your skin needs this oxygen that is carried by the blood. The redness does not last long.
^^Ferulic Acid is the most abundant phenolic compound found in Argan Oil. This antioxidant helps prevent damage caused by ultraviolet light. Exposure to ultraviolet light actually increases the antioxidant potency of ferulic acid.
Triterpenes: restructure cells, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, slows down cell aging, heal scars, allows the skin to regenerate new skin tissues
Squalene: a nutrient-rich oil. It is a fat-soluble antioxidant with the unique ability to anchor itself to the body’s cell membrane. It can deactivate the free radical known as a singlet oxygen, the free radical that is generated by exposure to the sun’s UV radiation, and can also absorb and bind fat-soluble toxins, helping to excrete them from the body. Squalene is involved in the process of cell growth. It is able to penetrate deeper and more readily than most other oils. Its compatibility with skin lipids can be attributed to the fact that human sebum, the skin’s own moisturizer, is comprised of 25% squalene. It is proven to have a positive effect on mature and rosacea skin. It is a natural bactericide and healer, and has been shown to have effects in the management of dermatitis and skin cancer.
