Following Successful Introduction Of Moroccan Argan Oil, Earth s Glow Discloses Time Limited Sale
Kim West Facebook It’s the battle of the oils. So many beauty brands now feature Argan Oil or Moroccan Oil as a key ingredient or important component in their formula. We wanted to know exactly what the difference is between these oils and what makes beauty lovers choose one over the other. Which of these popular oils for hair and skin should we use? Is either one better than the other? Native to Morocco, Argan Oil comes from the Argan Tree. This golden-colored oil is extracted from kernels produced by the tree. Coveted for centuries, Argan Oil is highly prized as both a rich gourmet ingredient for betterment of health, as well as an age-old beauty secret.Studies on the ingesting Argan oil reveal the nutty-flavored oil may have heart-health benefits similar to that of olive oil. As a beauty regime, however, Argan Oil has many benefits. It contains very high levels of Vitamin E and fatty acids, ideal for helping to treat many skin ailments and blemishes. Argan oil has multiple beauty uses. 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 hasnt happened yet for Vivian Bernstein, a 37-year-old lawyer in Amsterdam, whose hairdresser recommended the oil a year ago for her long, blonde locks. 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.

Cosmetics’ Hot Elixir: Argan Oil From Morocco
The Berber women earn 40dirhams ($4) for a days work producing about a kilogram of the dime-size kernels, which are ground and pressed to release an oil so rare, so versatile, and so potent that it can sell for the equivalent of $400 a liter in beauty boutiques worldwide. Dubbed liquid gold, amber-hued argan oil is the latest obsession of the $430billion personal-care market. Fans say it strengthens hair, soothes skin, and even tastes good drizzled on a salad. Its turning up everywhere, from Oscar week celebrity gift bags to the aisles of Wal-Mart Stores ( WMT ) and Tesco ( TSCO:LN ). Last year saw the debut of 588 argan oil hair products, according to researcher Mintel, up from 29 in 2008. Its really going quite crazy right now, says Dana Elemara, a former Goldman Sachs ( GS ) bond analyst who runs an argan oil import business in London. The argan craze calls to mind previous beauty fads, like that for jojoba, another gold-tinted oil from arid climates. Jojoba is now found in a wide array of everyday household items, such as liquid hand soap, and its allure has faded. While argan oil risks similar overexposure, its sustainable sourcing and very visible Fairtrade connection to rural Berber women will help preserve its cachet, analysts say. Moroccos exports of argan oil have more than doubled in the past five years, to more than 700 tons, according to government data.

Aromatherapy with Argan Carrier Oil
This is not a “new” oil, it’s been available for a very long time but it’s only now making its way to our part of the world. The Argan tree grows solely in the southwestern part of Morocco. The oil is obtained from the nut which looks like a cross between a walnut and an almond. I case you miss, “what is a carrier oil?” and “why use a carrier oil?” What are Carrier Oils?Carrier oils are so named because they “carry” an essential oil (EO) to the skin. Carrier oils refer to base oils that are used to dilute essential oils before applying them directly to your skin.Carrier oils play a far more significant role in aromatherapy than many people realise, and in comparison to the essential oils some people feel they are of little importance.Choosing a carrier oil is exactly the same as choosing an essential oil really, – you choose one with the properties that you need for your particular needs.

Liquid Gold for Hair Entices Ex-Goldman Analyst, L’Oreal
Researchers have discovered that Argan oil contains a profusion of essential fatty acids, carotenes, vitamin E, and squalene. Moroccan Argan oil contains the essential fatty acids Omega 6 and Omega 9. Fatty acids are vital for sustaining healthy levels of moisture and in order to avoid premature aging of the skin. Without sufficient essential fatty acids, one is at risk of dry hair, dry skin and dry nails. Sterols are another compound found in abundance in Argan Oil. Sterols serve the important function of restoring the natural protective lipid barrier, and help stimulate pore detoxification. Sterols reduce inflammation and leave skin with a soft feeling. Polyphenols are another important compound and are antioxidants. Antioxidants help delay skin aging.
