What’s with Argan Oil? Why do we put it in our products?

Referred to as ‘liquid gold’, argan oil is made from the fresh kernels of the fruit of the Argan tree in Morocco. Pure argan oil has a long, long history as a home remedy for health and beauty, including hair loss which is why it's included it in our Hair Growth Elixir.

So what is it?

Argan oil is full of fatty acids and powerful antioxidants such as vitamin E that have been shown to have benefits for your scalp and hair.

Moisturises and Conditions

Argan oil is widely used as a moisturizer for skin and hair because it is full of medium chain fatty acids (mainly oleic acid and linoleic acid) - these oils have been shown to lubricate the hair shaft and help maintain your hairs natural moisture.

Argan oil is also rich in vitamin E, which provides a fatty layer to your hair and scalp that may help prevent dryness and can help reduce fizziness and boost shine.

Improves scalp health

Argan oil has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that are good for your hair and your scalp! This can help prevent or improve skin conditions, including those that can affect the scalp that can cause hair loss, such a psoriasis.

Prevents styling and colouring damage

The medium-chain fatty acids in argan oil have a protective effect that can help prevent damage from washing and styling.

A 2013 study also found that argan oil reduced damage caused by hair dye when applied to Caucasian hair after colour processing.

Sun protection

Argan oil has been used by Moroccan women for centuries to protect skin from sun damage. A recent study found that the antioxidant activity in argan oil protected skin against free radical damage from the sun. This benefit may also extend to the hair, helping to prevent drying and other damage from ultraviolet rays.

Argan oil for hair loss

The proven benefits of Argan Oil for hair and scalp health may prevent hair breakage and hair loss. Vitamin E — which argan oil has in abundance — was shown to improve hair growth in several recent studies.

The powerful antioxidants and nourishing fatty acids in argan oil help keep your hair moisturized and protects against styling damage and damage caused by free radicals. This can result in less breakage and shedding.
