Argan oil is the beauty secret of Moroccan women for centuries. It is used for skin care and hair care, due to its high antioxidant content and ability to enhance the natural moisture.
It is an amazing natural source of vitamin E with 80% essential fatty acids. They are called essential fatty acids, a group of fatty acids that the organism can not produce and that have to be supplied topically to body. Non-essential acids (saturated fatty acids and monounsaturated) can be obtained from the organism proteins, carbohydrates or alcohols.

The lack of fatty acids, when people grow up, causes drying and loss of elasticity in the skin, favoring the appearance of wrinkles.
In the early ´90s, chemical analysis confirmed that the valuable dermatological properties of Argan oil is due to its high essential acid composition (also called omega 3, 6 and 9: 50% linoleic acid, linolenic acid 15%, acid 12% oleic acid, arachidonic acid 1%, 3% linolenic acid), and large amounts of tocopherols (vitamin E), triple more than of olive oil has.
