Here at Nourish, one of the most exciting ingredients we use is Argan Oil. It is a key part of our Argan Skin Renew, and Argan Skin Rescue, and is proving hugely popular with our customers all over the world!
So for this week’s edition of the Nourish Blog we are taking a closer look at this amazing ingredient, to give you a little insight into the science behind Nourish!
Argan Oil is produced from the kernels of the Argan Tree, which grows almost exclusively in south-western Morocco. These trees once covered North Africa but are now endangered, making Argan Oil one of the rarest oils in the world.
However production of Argan oil has helped to protect and sustain Argan trees, and at present supports about 2.2 million people in the main Argan regions. Much of the Argan oil produced today is made by women’s co-operatives, through which many Moroccan women have found an income, which many have used to fund education for themselves or their children. Here at Nourish we go to great lengths to ensure that all of our ingredients come from sustainable, organic sources, and by doing this we are making sure that we are not only protecting your skin, but we are protecting the environment too!
The next stage involves extracting and cracking the Argan nut to obtain its kernels. There are only one or two kernals in each fruit, so it can be a long process, and on top of that it can’t be done with machines, meaning that it is still done by hand. The kernels are ground and pressed, giving out pure, unfiltered Argan oil.
This oil then makes its way to us here at Nourish, where through a series of blending mixing and clinical trials, it is developed it into one of our truly breakthrough products; Argan Skin Rescue. The oil itself is extremely high in Vitamin E and antioxidants, which reduces the breakdown of collagen in the skin, giving an immediate boost to your skin’s feel and texture.
Then combine this with the other amazing active ingredients in Argan Skin Rescue, such as Abyssinian oil and Neroli Essential Oil, and you have a product that can not only help to reduce blotchiness and soothe irritated skin, but that can actually help to reduce scarring associated with acne, eczema, psoriasis and even injury.
To top it all off we have certification from The Vegan Society that all of our products are cruety free, and contain absolutely no animal products, and all of our Argan products are Soil Association approved, (meaning they are guaranteed as organic!)
