Argan oil is popping up in lots of beauty products for hair, skin and body, and with good reason. Used for centuries by Moroccan women, the precious oil has skin-softening, hair-nourishing and anti-wrinkle benefits. The oil is extracted from kernels taken from the fruit of the Argan tree and its secret is an abundance of vitamin E and phytochemicals called saponins.
Use it on your hair and it will help restore its moisture balance, leaving it shinier and easier to manage. Apply to mid-lengths and ends of hair only to avoid greasiness. On your face, use a couple of drops alone and massage in as a facial oil, or you can mix with your usual moisturiser. On your body, massage in after a bath or shower for super-soft skin that stays hydrated all day long.
