It moisturises as well as protects the skin’s barrier.

Argan oil is popularly known as ‘liquid gold’. The light texture and nutty aroma make it suitable for all skin types, specifically for dry and combination skin. Cold Pressed Argan Oil is present in various skin care and hair care formulations due to its nourishing, moisturising, and conditioning properties. It helps to seal moisture and keep your skin barrier nourished.

 

Argan Oil Benefits For Skin

Cold pressed argan oil is suitable for all skin types due to its nourishing and moisturising properties. The lightweight texture of argan oil also makes it suitable for oily skin because it does not leave behind greasiness. The presence of antioxidants and essential fatty acids nourishes your skin and imparts a natural glow.

2. Improves Barrier -

Cold pressed argan oil is an abundant source of pure vitamin E that strengthens your skin's barrier and protects it from environmental stressors. It helps your skin to retain moisture for long hours and prevents dryness, leaving it soft, supple, and nourished.

Organic argan oil is recommended for your skin as it repairs damage and reduces inflammation.
