Argan oil (Argania spinosa Kernel Oil) is a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree (Argania spinosa L.) that originate in Morocco. Argan oil contains vitamin E, phenols, carotenes, squalene, and fatty acids (80% unsaturated fatty acids).
Vitamin E contains important antioxidants, and therefore argan oil has been used for long for its anti-ageing properties. Its natural phenols help to fight against fungal and bacterial problems and its carotene is known to prevent hair loss and make the hair stronger. Its squalane content makes the oil non-greasy, yet an effective conditioning agent for hair. It conditions by coating and smoothing the hair cuticle so that hair feels softer and looks shinier and healthier.
