Could argan oil be too good to be true? Not according to the Organic Beauty View (www.organicbeautyview.com)
“Listen up, because not only is it true, this extremely rare and precious oil is exceptionally rich in natural tocopherols (vitamin E), rich in phenols and phenolic acid, rich in carotenes, rich in squalene, rich in essential fatty acids, 80% unsaturated fatty acids , and depending on the extraction method, more resistant to oxidation than olive oil. All of these nutrients are essential for healthy skin, hair & nails, and are basically part of the building blocks for the cellular structure of skin, as well as being highly potent antioxidants which neutralize free radicals (the second biggest cause of aging behind sun exposure).”
This expert goes on to discuss the preservation of the argan forests and the economic freedom that argan extraction affords the Berber women of Morocco and cites Kahina as one of their favorite argan oil product lines.
