So, What’s Up With Argan Oil?
Argan Oil is extracted from kernels found within the fruit of the argan tree.
Argan Trees are native to Morocco.
Argan Oil is a virgin oil - this means that it’s created using the cold-pressed technique to give you the most unaltered oil possible.
Argan Oil is totally edible. In fact, Argan Oil is widely consumed throughout Morocco in a similar fashion to olive oil.
Argan Oil has been traditionally used to treat skin diseases due to its ability to moisturize and high levels of antioxidants.
Why Do We Use Argan Oil In TreeActiv Products?
Packed with essential fatty acids, vitamin E, and antioxidants, Argan Oil is proven to make hair softer, silkier, and shinier. The high moisture content can help revitalize damaged hair, treat split ends, tame frizzy hair, and is an incredible conditioner.
This ingredient profile also makes Argan Oil ideal for skin. Pure Argan Oil seals in moisture and protects skin from free-radicals and environmental damage, like pollution. The high antioxidant content plays a crucial role in anti-aging by helping to maintain skin’s elasticity. Some may be hesitant to the idea of oil on your skin, but Argan Oil helps control natural oil production and won’t clog pores. For acne-prone individuals, Argan Oil contains oleic acid and linoleic acid, which are great for acne-prone individuals. Oleic Acid helps promote skin’s natural sebum production and linoleic acid promotes healthy skin turnover.
