Argan Skin Care Oil
With essential lavender oil, which lends the skin care oil soothing fragrance.
A Fragrant Argan Care for the Facial Skin.
The Argan facial care oil is particularly rich in antioxidants and provides intensive care from the very first application. The skin absorbs the oil quickly and benefits immediately from its high moisture content. Argand’Or enriches the facial care oil with an amount of essential oil – from lavender or damask rose – adding a pleasant fragrance to this skincare. Apply a few drops with the pipette to the face, neck and décolleté and gently massage in.
Valuable and Good for One’s Health.
The Moroccan Berbers have been using argan oil for thousands of years: The oil is an ever-present ingredient in the Berber cuisine and their body care products. In Europe, the valuable and rare oil has long since become an insider tip. For good reasons, because the creamy-nutty oil tastes delicious and contributes to protecting one’s health. The oil consists of over 80% unsaturated fatty acids, has a very high vitamin E content, and protects the human cell organism with its antioxidants. When applied to the skin, argan oil is quickly absorbed and leaves no greasy or shiny film. It moisturizes and has a positive effect on the skin’s tension. Even sensitive skin types or types or skin prone to irritation tolerate the oil very well.
The Moroccan Arganeraie.
The precious liquid is extracted from the fruits of the argan trees (Argania Spinosa). The trees – threatened with extinction nowadays – grow only in an area in the southwest of Morocco, between the Atlantic Ocean, the High Atlas and the Anti-Atlas: the Arganeraie. UNESCO declared the Arganeraie a Biosphere Reserve in 1998 to protect the trees and listed the traditional production of argan oil that uses stone mills and hand pressing as Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) in urgent need of preservation. Argand’Or uses hand-pressed argan oil from the UCFA (Union des Coopératives des Femmes de l’Arganeraie), an association of over 20 women’s cooperatives. These co-ops secure the incomes of Berber families while preserving the social structures and the unique cultural landscape together with the argan trees.
Healthy and Precious. Argan Oil from the Moroccan Arganeraie Biosphere Reserve.
The Berbers of Morocco have been using argan oil for thousands of years. It's employed in the kitchen where it is added to almost every dish. The oil is also used as a personal care item. This precious and rare oil has already established itself as an insider tip in Europe. And not without reason: The creamy oil with the nutty flavour tastes delicious, and it is also extraordinarily healthy. It consists of more than 80% unsaturated fatty acids, contains a high amount of Vitamin E and protects human cells with its antioxidants. When applied to the skin argan oil is quickly absorbed without leaving behind a slick or glistening film. It provides moisture which keeps the skin elastic and is compatible with skin that is sensitive or prone to irritation.
The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of Argania in the Arganeraie. The argan trees (Argania spinosa) which are threatened with extinction grow solely in the area in the south-west of Morocco, between the Atlantic and the High and Lesser Atlas mountains. In order to protect Arganeraie forests and support the sustainable manufacture of argan oil with stone mills and hand pressing, UNESCO declared the area a "Biosphere Reserve" in 1998 and placed the traditional manufacturing of argan oil on the "Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity" in 2014.
