BioBalance Certified Organic Argan Oil is a unique oil from the nuts of the argan tree, which grows almost exclusively in Morocco. Argan oil contains an exceptionally high percentage of essential fatty acids, including linoleic acid (omega 6) ensuring the repair and defence of the skin by stimulating intracellular oxygenation. The women of North Africa have used argan oil for centuries to protect their hair and skin from the drying effects of a harsh desert environment. High in vitamin E, argan oil is very moisturising, quickly absorbed, and a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It is also high in essential fatty acids which help fight against drying and loss of elasticity in the skin, both of which encourage the appearance of wrinkles. The skin gains suppleness, elasticity and tone and becomes more resistant to ageing effects. Helping to protect and regenerate the skin leaving it soft and supple, argan oil is believed to support a variety of skin conditions such as dry skin, acne, psoriasis, eczema, and wrinkles. It can also be used to help restore condition to hair that is suffering from exposure to the elements, environmental pollution and excessive colouring and styling. It tames frizz, restores shine and makes hair soft and manageable.
