Here are some benefits of Argan Oil:
1) Argan may help to protect the skin from lines and wrinkles, including crow's feet. 2) It is a wonderful softening agent and moisturizer. 3) It may help to reduce irritation due to its healing properties. 4) It may help to reduce stretch marks due to pregnancy. 5) It provides anti-inflammatory properties which is wonderful for aging skin. Inflammation is the number one cause of aging. 6) Since it is very rich in proteins, Argan oil helps to improve the elasticity of the skin.
It may also help strengthen weak or brittle nails. Argan oil is a great choice for dry, sensitive and mature skin. For those of you with combination or oily, I would give it a try and see how your skin reacts. Some sources state that Argan oil is comedogenic because of its high content of oleic acid. Others say, it is not comedogenic in the least and as mentioned above, the Pub Med article suggests it may be helpful in controlling sebum production. One could argue that if it can control sebum production, then it shouldn't clog pores. I am not dry in the least and have used other oils high in Oleic Acid and have not experienced any breakouts or issues. If you are more on the oily side or prone to breakouts and you wish to try Argan Oil, make sure that your purchase comes with a money back guarantee. Our Extra Rich Cream contains an abundance of Argan oil!
