Argan Oil: Morocco’s Hottest Secret

Produced from the nut of the argan tree, argan oil is perhaps one of the rarest oils in the world and one of the most expensive, but for good reason. Packed with essential Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and vitamin E, this highly prized oil also contains many other ingredients that has made it the talk of the High Street. Argan oil is a phytosterol which means that it can help the body mimic the effect of oestrogen on the skin, making it ideal for women who are going through the menopause. It is also know as ‘dry oil’ that does not weigh the hair down so is suitable for hair that is prone to frizz or coarseness. And of course you can eat it in salad dressings or use it to cook with. We have searched the shops to find you products that contain this versatile oil from skin care to shampoo.
