It is the ‘liquid gold’ when it comes to nourishing skin, hair, scalp, body, face and hands. Argan Oil is a native oil of Morocco that is increasingly becoming a choice of celebrities and the common man the world over. Guess why? Extracted from the kernels of the Argan Tree, it is a powerhouse of Vitamin E, fatty acids and antioxidants that makes it the nature’s best ingredient for healthy body and glowing skin. One of the rarest oils in the world owing to the limited areas where the tree is grown, Argan Oil is increasingly gaining impetus and recognition in beauty products as well as cosmetics.
Call it the elixir of beauty, the increasingly popularity of Argan Oil has encouraged the Government of Morocco to step up its annual production from 2,500 tonnes to 4,000 tonnes by the year 2020. Let us take a look at the benefits of this miracle oil that is the passport to getting luminously soft locks and skin.
