ArganEsque to Launch What Some Consider the Best Argan Oil for Hair Treatment on Amazon
She liked that it made her hair soft without being greasy, and she now buys argan-infused shampoos and conditioners. Its got sticking power, she says. LOreal says it gets argan oil from the German chemical giant BASF (BAS) SE — which buys from Berber cooperatives. The company says its able to find sufficient supplies, partly because the increasing value of argan has helped convince people living among the trees to stop cutting them for firewood. Rutted Road Before this, the men made everything, said Belfarah Fatima, a 70-year-old mother of six with more grandchildren than she can count, as she cracks argan nuts at a cooperative in Tagadirt NAabadou, a village of mud-brick houses at the end of a rutted gravel road outside Agadir. Fatimas cooperative is part of a network founded by Zoubida Charrouf , a Moroccan chemist who has studied the oils properties for nearly 30 years. In the mid-1990s, Charrouf began organizing Berber women to produce and sell argan over the protests of their husbands, who claimed Charrouf was only out for their money. Her initial 16 volunteers were all widows and divorcees, she said, seated in the lobby of a Casablanca hotel on a drizzly Friday morning. Today, there are over 150 cooperatives, the most successful of which generate sales of 500,000 euros ($650,000) a year. Browsing through a market near the hotel, Charrouf notes the argan products on display, including oil from the Tighanimine cooperative that she helped establish. Shes not buying any, though.

It can be applied to the face, body, hair and cuticles, and is often added to other products. It helps to treat split ends, treat acne, dry and irritated skin, and prevent scarring from unwanted blemishes. Argan Oil is also touted as an effective anti-aging product, helping to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. With so many benefits, it’s no wonder this oil is highly prized and also said to be highly expensive. Now Moroccan Oil, if you haven’t already guessed, yes, this is Argan Oil too. The difference here is Moroccan Oil often has additional ingredients already added to it. These additives can include silicones most often, Aloe Vera, and various other components. Made with Argan oil, Moroccan oil is a lesser pure form of Argan Oil, so if you’re looking for the liquid gold and nothing else, be sure to read the beauty label ingredients. That being said, however, Moroccan Oil still has many of the same great benefits as Argan Oil. It can help improve the appearance of dry, damaged hair, rough skin, and delivers brilliant shine to any mane. So are there any real downsides to using either? Due to the limited supply of Argan Oil, the cost for this natural beauty agent is very high, making price a definite factor in many people’s choice to try it. In addition, the fatty acids found in these oils, while beneficial, can also sometimes cause skin breakouts and acne. This is due to the presence of oleic acid, which can clog pores and cause inflammation. Just be cautious and know not all oils are always packaged in their truest form. A quick read of the ingredients should definitely help you make your beauty pick.

Argan Oil: What it Is, Why it Works, and the Best Products with It
Berbers add the deep yellow, toasty-flavored oil to couscous, serve it alongside bread, or eat it on its own. Argan oil has been shown to reduce cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood, and recent research by Frances Institut Pasteur, Moroccos Lipoproteins and Atherosclerosis Research Laboratory, and others suggests that it might contribute to the prevention of various cancers , cardiovascular diseases , and diabetes . Beyond the health benefits of consuming argan oil, there are also important environmental benefits associated with its production. The same deep root systems that make argan trees well adapted to heat and frequent drought in southwestern Morocco also protect the land against soil erosion and desertification. Meanwhile, argan trees provide shade and protection for crops or pastureland, presenting opportunities for agroforestry. Arguably, however, the most noteworthy impact of argan oil production is social. This rare oil has captivated a global audience, primarily because of its use in cosmetics. As a result, market prices have been on the rise (making it the most expensive edible oil in the world), and argan oil producerslargely local Moroccan womenhave been reaping the benefits. Because the process of extracting argan oil is extremely labor intensive (it can take 50 kilograms of seeds to produce just half a liter of oil), the women who produce it by hand are frequently part of production co-operatives, such as the UCFA ( Union des Cooperatives des Femmes de lArganeraie ). Founded in 1999, this innovative co-operative produces and markets argan oil and is supported by the Moroccan government as both a conservation and development strategy. Today, the UCFA unites 22 smaller womens co-operatives.
