Argan oil is an extremely beneficial oil that has been hailed as “liquid gold” in the hair and beauty world.
Derived from the crushed nut of the argan tree found in Morocco and Algeria, argan oil contains vitamin E, carotenes and squalene.
Why Argan Oil for Skin?
Argan oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids; properties that combine to support intense hydration and moisture. Additionally, it has a long shelf life. It has been featured prominently on the website.
Why Pomegranate Oil for Skin?
Pomegranate oil, on the other hand, is rich in antioxidants, vitamins K and C, potassium, copper, zinc, and iron. It also contains punicic and ellagic acids.
Punicic acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid while ellagic acid is a natural antioxidant, which alleviates skin wrinkling and inflammation. Pomegranate oil promotes rejuvenation and fortification of the skin.
Both argan oil and pomegranate oil are light and rapidly absorbed upon application. A combination of both these oils creates a powerful, potent, rejuvenating and protective serum.
