Beloved of A-listers for its anti-ageing properties, here's our guide to this superfood for the skin.
Le Petit Olivier Pure Argan Oil is an intensive, regenerative and completely natural moisturiser for the whole body, face, hair and nails.
In addition to its abilities in anti-ageing, this Moroccan dream helps to reduce inflammation associated with skin conditions including psoriasis and eczema, while also helping to heal scarring and prevent stretch marks during pregnancy.
It can be soothing on oily and acne prone skin, which often suffers from over-cleansing, replacing lost natural moisture. Though rich, argan oil is non-greasy and easily absorbed, helping to balance sebum levels.
Dry, frizzy or damaged hair can benefit from regular treatments with argan oil for brilliant moisture and shine. Dull or brittle nails too can be restored to health.
Argan oil is extracted from the kernels of the argan tree, which were traditionally collected from goat droppings by the Berber people. Thankfully, goats are no longer involved with the process.
Instead, the kernels are harvested from the UNESCO protected argan trees by a local Berber women's co-operative, then cold pressed to preserve all the precious nutrients. This natural honey-coloured elixir is packed with a powerful blend of nourishing vitamin E, anti-oxidants and eight essential fatty acids.
The result is a 100% pure, certified organic oil of the highest quality, with no artificial colour, preservatives or scent. Such as

Only a tiny quantity is needed for intense moisture and care. Warm 2-3 drops in your hands and gently massage into the required area. It can be left on hair in need of serious repair overnight, or otherwise just for one hour, then shampooed out. Also try using a few drops in a hot bath for a luxurious experience and all-over conditioning.
Natural by Nature's Argan Oil has high levels of Vitamin E that can help to reduce wrinkles and signs of ageing.
