Argan nut kernel is the Argan oil extracted from the kernels of the Argan tree, Argania spinosa, mainly found in Morocco.
Rich in nutrients, antioxidants, and anti inflammatories, Argan oil is a popular ingredient in skincare formulations because it can help to nourish, hydrate and rejuvenate the skin, promoting a healthy, radiant complexion. Concentrated vitamins and polyphenols, Argan oil helps to protect the skin from oxidative damage caused by free radicals, while its anti-inflammatory properties soothe and calm red, irritated and inflamed skin.
Argan oil is rich in fatty acids and tocopherols which help promote elasticity and firmness; bouncier, firmer skin minimises the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and lax skin.
Whilst Argan is an oil, it is non-comedogenic meaning it will not clog pores or aggravate acne prone skin; it actually helps to balance oil production and sebum levels within the skin, replenishing the skin’s moisture barrier.
Inci name: Argania Spinosa Kernel oil.
