Cosmetics’ Hot Elixir: Argan Oil From Morocco

made their first discovery at the Flemish Passs Mizzen prospect off Newfoundland in 2009. Maybe the Mizzen well told them something, Dodson said of the other oil producers. Its pretty strange to me that they are taking positions in Morocco, but then they dont want to join in Canada, where we have already proven the hydrocarbon system. Statoil had sought more partners to share drilling costs prior to the Bay du Nord and Harpoon finds this year, according to Dodson. The company now plans to appraise the discoveries further before offering any stakes in the fields and deciding on their development. We have a lot of upside on the structure, which weve not assessed yet. This could get bigger, he said. We are not about to sell in Canada any time soon. A total of about 10 wells in Moroccan waters are planned through 2014, according to Citigroup Inc. Explorers have long operated onshore in the country, drilling 730 wells since 1919, while there are only 40 at sea, according to Oswald Clint , an analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein & Co.

The Magic of Moroccan Oil

And argan-based skin- and hair-care brands like Moroccanoil have been fixtures in New York stores for years. U.S. department-store sales of products with argan oil rose 59percent last year, following a 159percent increase in 2011, according to researcher NPD Group. Rising demand has boosted wholesale prices 50percent since 2007, to $30 a liter, while retail prices can exceed 10 times that. Oil certified under Fairtrade production standards goes for even more. Those prices have led some to resort to less than savory tactics, passing off diluted Moroccan oil blends as 100percent argan. Its like the Mafia, says Afafe Daoud, a project manager who works with a cooperative near Agadir. The group of 60 Berber women produces Fairtrade argan oil under its own brand, Tounarouz, and sells it across Europe. Records of argan oil extraction trace back to the 13thcentury, when locals would gather the oil-rich nuts excreted by goats that climb trees to eat the plum-size fruit. Today, argan oil processors use nuts that havent passed through a goats intestines. Endangered by construction and farming, argan treesspiny evergreens with 150-year lifespanshave come under United Nations protection, and makers of the oil are seeking the same kind of geographic certification enjoyed by Parma ham and French champagne in Europe.

Coconut Oil Vs. Moroccan Oil for Frizzy Hair

In an article by the Michigan Journal published on December 3rd titled “Argan Oil, An All Natural Remedy for Healthy Hair,”the differences between Moroccan and Argan oil are discussed. The article acknowledges that a lot of people are unaware that these two products are in fact different from each other. According to the article, the major difference between the two beauty oils is that Argan oil is a pure product with little to no additives, while Moroccan oil contains Argan oil along with various additives, like silicones. The article explains that the reason for creating a product with additives is due to the scarcity of Argan oil, and states that it is the rarest oil in the world. Due to the rarity of the product, it is very expensive. Therefore, by creating a mixed product like Moroccan oil, consumers can enjoy the benefits of Argan oil without spending too much. Greenstone commented on this article stating, Argan oil is made from the kernels of the Argan tree, which is grown in Morocco. Because Argan oil comes from Morocco, most people do not know there is a difference between the Argan and Moroccan oils. In fact, some think they are interchangeable. This is clearly not the case. Greenstone said, Even though it is usually a good rule of thumb to opt for the more natural product, both products deliver beautiful shine and strength to hair, cuticles, elbows and knees, and can be used on dry skin for relief. She added, Argan oil is a rich source of vitamin E, antioxidants, and fatty acidsall nutrients hair loves!Another terrific option for healthy, sexy hair is using shampoos and conditioners containing Keratin Complex.

NewVo Beauty Comments On An Article Defining The Differences Between Moroccan and Argan Oil

”We could have stopped the leak probably in two or three days,” said Daan Kaakebeen, an official of Smit Tak, the Dutch concern in charge of salvage operations. But he said in a telephone interview from the company’s headquarters in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, that high winds and 20-foot waves offshore made working conditions ”absolutely terrible.” The supertanker stopped leaking oil on Tuesday, he said, 15 days after fire and explosions tore a hole in its hull. The governments of Morocco and Spain both refused permission for the crippled ship to be towed into their more sheltered coastal waters while it was still leaking oil. Officials in both countries argued that the proximity of the leaking tanker would only worsen the threat of pollution to their tourist beaches, fishing grounds, oyster beds and breeding grounds for birds. Covering 100 Square Miles The vast brown tide coming from the supertanker was estimated several days ago to cover about l00 square miles. But while the spill is one of the largest on record, experts involved in the cleanup have now said that the churning seas have broken up the slick into smaller patches that will be easier to clean up if they reach the shore. ”Much of the oil, its volatile portion, has already evaporated and the solid parts are dispersing in the sea water,” one British expert said. Crews from Britain, France, Spain and Portugal have responded to Morocco’s appeal for help. Hundreds of workers are trying to minimize the oil menace, spraying dispersal agents from planes and helicopters, vacuuming the slick where possible and laying floating barriers offshore. Experts believe that, for the moment, the danger is past of oil soiling hundreds of miles of Moroccan coast and Spain’s Canary Islands.
