Moroccan Argan Oil. As you may have guessed I LOVE to MOISTURIZE! Every inch of my body. I recently reported on Bio-Oil a great inexpensive product that really delivers on its promise to alleviate skin imperfections such as acne scars, stretch marks, etc.
I’m a firm believer in the healing properties of the omega oils that can protect the heart and nourish the skin. Argan oil is one of those miracle elixirs. Rich in vitamin E, the omegas, linoleic and oleic acids, this oil can be applied to the skin and hair.
It can be pricey, Josie Maran’s is $48.00 at Sephora and AR457 Metaserum contains Argan oil at $105.00. Both are processed from organically grown nuts and come with the lore of “Moroccan” women mysteriously and painstakingly harvesting and shelling the nuts to produce the oil. Hmm, I also heard that tale applied to African women when Europeans “discovered” and hyped the wonders of shea butter a few years ago. Ahh, more power to our Arabic sisters for this great product!
