Product Review: Argan Oil

By Fredrica Syren:

On Thursday we were at a leadership conference in San Diego, where I had a table featuring the Green-mom.com web site and cookbook.  I was intrigued when our neighbor, who also was there as a vendor, told me about his product Argan oil, which he was selling.  After trying some on my hand, I decided to buy a small bottle.

Argan oil is a rare vegetable oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree, which grows only in Morocco.  Argan is known for its numerous medical properties because of its richness in minerals and vitamins.  Argan oil contains unusually high concentrations of vitamin E, a vital component to healthy skin.  Since 100% pure argan oil is expensive, you find this oil mostly as a component of make up and moisturizers.

Although found in various products, you can use argan oil directly on your skin.  This instantly enriches the skin with vitamins and is supposed to help minimize the chance of any possible skin infections.  It’s also said to be effective in fading wrinkles and stretch marks when used consistently for one month.

I have used it on my hair as a shine, and on my face, on my hands, and on diaper rash.  I like the oil because, compared to other oils, it absorbs into the skin right away without leaving a greasy feeling behind.  I had a rash on my hands and it has helped clear that up.  I used it on a diaper rash and that also cleared up right away.  I had been worried since one small bottle was quite pricey, but I have found that I need to use only a drop or two, so it will last me a long time.  I really do recommend this product for its multifunctional properties.
