How to use Argan Oil:
Skin application: One few drops of Argan Oils are needed for entire face. The oil penetrates easily and doesn’t leave an oily residue. Can be applied around the eyes or on chipped lips as well. A very gentle circular massage is recommended when applying Argan Oil. It can be used in place of other facial creams or body lotions at night for curing dryness of the skin. On wrinkles and other scars caused by some skin disease, small volume of Argan oil once or twice a day is enough to get the desirable results. It is an excellent makeup base too. It has a soothing effect for Arthritic and Rheumatic conditions and very good results for preventing of stretch marks during pregnancy or reducing them later.
Nails application: Argan Oil can be used either pure or in a 50-50 mixture with fresh lemon juice. If pure Argan oil is used, just a drop of two are needed for the nail. Massage gently into the nails and cuticles till it is absorbed. If mixture of Argan oil and lemon juice is used, then dip the fingers up to the cuticles into Argan oil mixture for a few minutes. It is excellent for giving strength to the easily breakable nails and for the smoothness and good shape of the cuticles. (Toes of feet can similarly be treated with Argan oil)
Hair application: Argan oil can be applied on hair before or after washing.
Before washing application: It is recommended to apply Argan Oil about 30 minutes prior to washing by massaging softly the head with fingertips and palm of the hand, then by using brush or comp spread the oil evenly throughout the hair from the toots to the tips of the hair. Wrap the oiled head in warm towel for 15-20 minutes for best results. After that wash as normal.
After washing application: Three to four drops applied in hair with the help of brush or fingers would add to the lustre and freshness of hair after washing.

About Argan Oil:
Argan Oil is one of the rarest oils due to the small and specific growing area of the trees. The old method of extracting it takes several days and about 32kg of fruits to make 1 liter of oil. The unique, rich and complex composition of Argan Oil makes it so versatile. It has been traditionally used for hair, skin and nail care, massage, curing stretch marks and treatment of various dermatological conditions. Argan Oil contains essential unsaturated fatty acids in abundance, sterols, polyphenols, ferulic acid, linoleic acid and very high levels of vitamin E & A:
Unsaturated Fatty Acids are necessary for the human body, but they are not synthesized by the body. Argan Oil contains about 80% of the essential fatty acids which have antioxidant and moisturizing properties. They are essential for manufacturing and repairing of cell membranes and very important for the regulation and maintenance of healthy skin and prevention of premature aging signs.
Vitamin E is fat soluble vitamin with excellent anti-free radical and antioxidant properties. It is anti-inflammatory and gives strength to capillary walls. It prevents evaporation of moisture from epidermis and acts as a barrier against aging of cells. Promotes nourishment of cells. Also very helpful against scarring from wounds and stretch marks.
Polyphenols are natural component of the mother plants and have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-aging, anti-allergic and antioxidant properties.
Ferulic Acid is a very potent antioxidant, which increases its potency on exposure to ultra violet radiations. This property makes it powerful barrier against the damaging effect of ultra violet radiation.
Carotenoids are fat soluble and protect the skin from ultra violet radiation and free radicals reactivity. They maintain healthy skin and are an effective barrier against arthritis.
Sterols in Argan Oil work in great harmony with human skin as their structure is strikingly similar to the sterols in human body. Sterols from Argan Oil keep the structural integrity of cell membrane, reduce inflammation and improve skin metabolism and moisture retention. They are very easily absorbable.
