Will start from the scratch…The Argan tree and Karite tree (Shea Butter) are in the same family and as such are comparable in many respects….Both have fantastic qualities and one cannot be called better than the other….

Fine…I being the referee…can’t deny that both of these oils are great moisturizing oils….Argan oil is a better moisturizer than Shea Butter because of its high content of unsaturated fatty acids….Yes that means One point to Argan oil…This fact gives Argan oil a higher rate of absorption….Both Argan oil and Shea Butter are non-comedogenic…as in they will never clog your pores…defying the obvious quality of any oil…

Shea Butter has a higher nonsaponifiable…Okay I know it is too big and bizarre a word…but I was trying to refer to its healing fraction…And it is better than Argan here…thus giving it an edge in this category…One point to Shea butter here…Many people call these trees cousin trees…. Now that’s unusual…cousins fighting…(Okay I know it was corny)

One of the primary noticeable differences between Argan oil and Shea Butter is their consistency at room temperature’….Shea Butter is a solid and Argan oil is a liquid…Like an oil it is meant to be…

The only oil we know of which can successfully be blended with Shea Butter without losing the healing properties associated with Premium Grade A Shea Butter is Argan oil….So the cousins come together at this stage…

So…I’ll make you all a happy lot today…Read on to discover the extraordinary treatment of Argan oil for acne…

Acne is a disorder of the pilosebaceous unit…which is made up of a hair follicle…you know the tiny hairs popping from the pores of our skin…sebaceous gland…and a hair…These units are found everywhere on the body except on the

  • Palms
  • Soles
  • Top of the feet
  • The lower lip

The number of pilosebaceous units is greatest on the face…upper neck….and chest….Sebaceous glands produce a substance called sebum…which is responsible for keeping the skin and hair moisturized….Just that during the period of adolescence sebaceous glands enlarge and produce more sebum under the influence of hormones…also called androgens…And it is after about age 20….that sebum production begins to decrease….

Why Argan Oil For Acne?

I’ll tell you why Argan oil is best for fighting against acne…It is because….this oil is packed with nutrients such as

  • Vitamin E
  • unsaturated essential fatty acids
  • Polyphenols
  • Sterols
  • Antioxidants

All these things together benefit the skin tremendously….After a week of applying the oil once a day…one starts seeing improvements…After a month of using the Moroccan Argan oil…few less noticeable acne scars are left…

Not only this…there is thorough evidence to support this…Scientists discovered argan oil several years ago….and people have been using the product ever both as skin as well as hair product moisturizer…It is normally used as a standalone product…

Argan oil makes your skin very moist and makes both your skin and hair shine leaving no greasy and oily feel….It is oxymoronic…contradictory but it is true…

Pure Argan Oil can help fight the symptoms of Acne and help reduce acne scarring….If we closely look at the problem of Acne…We will understand what it really is…and also the main causes of this common skin disease…

Acne is typically characterized by one or more of the following…

  • Red skin
  • Blackhead
  • Whiteheads
  • Pimples
  • Scarring 

Nearly everyone suffers from at least one bout of acne during their lifetime and generally it most commonly occurs during adolescence….Like I mentioned previously…Acne generally reduces by the time one reaches their early twenties…Again I have mentioned this before….however in rare cases the condition can carry on well into ones late thirties or forties… 

But…the verdict is….Regular use of Pure Argan Oil has remarkable effects on the skin as the oil is naturally rich in vitamin E…a nutrient that is well known to help repair and keep your skin healthy…Using 100% Deodorized Pure Argan Oil can directly address this skin condition as the light oil will help promote the growth of healthy skin cells…

Traditional Oil – Argan

 

This Argan oil has innumerable medicinal properties…which are yet untouched…

I’ll try to touch some of those through the medium of this article…

Stay glued…discover Argan in a better fashion…read ahead…

The Argan tree (also called argania spinosa) is perfect for a harsh environment…surviving heat…drought and poor soil….

There was a time when hardly people knew about this magical oil…I mean of course outside Morocco…and surprisingly enough….many Moroccans themselves had never heard of it because it grows only in the south-west of the country….it is roughly between Essaouira and Agadir (unusual names I know)…in an area covering 700,000-800,000 hectares….But within the area where the argan grows there are about 21 million trees which play a vital role in the food chain and the environment…though their numbers are declining…

You know the trunk of the argan is often twisted and gnarled…allowing goats to clamber along its branches and feed on the leaves and fruit…

And if you talk about the appearance of this tree…or the fruit then…the fruit has a green…fleshy exterior like an olive…but larger and rounder…Inside…there is a nut with an extremely hard shell…which in turn contains one…two or three almond-shaped kernels….

Coming to the production of argan oil…Well…the production of it…which is still mostly done by traditional methods…is a lengthy process….Each nut has to be cracked open to remove the kernels…and it is said that producing one litre of oil takes 20 hours’ work

You know this Argan oil is a tad darker than olive oil…with a reddish tinge….It can be used for cooking and is claimed to have various medicinal properties…such as lowering cholesterol levels…stimulating circulation and strengthening the body’s natural defences….Internationally…there is some interest in its possible cosmetic uses…

The residue from the kernels after oil extraction is a thick chocolate-coloured paste called “amlou” which is sweetened and served as a dip for bread at breakfast time in Berber households….It flavour is similar to that of peanut butter….

Almost all its parts are of some or the other use to us…Like

  • The wood and nut-shells of the argan tree are burned for cooking…
  • The wood is also used decoratively in some of the inlaid boxes…
  • The roots of the argan tree grow deep in search of water…helping to bind the soil and prevent erosion…

Isn’t it a really caring…environment friendly tree?

Listen to this…Households that make their own argan oil tend to use if for general cooking….you know why?

Because it is expensive to buy…others may use it more sparingly…you know like for…flavouring salads…just an example….A few drops stirred into couscous just before serving give it a rich…nutty aroma….( yes it is kind of a tip for you to note)

Argan production is still basically a cottage industry…managed largely by women…But many people believe that if the oil became better known it could provide more employment in the region as well as enhancing the environment….

Bottles of what pass for argan oil are sold along the roadsides between Essouira and Agadir…but is difficult to tell if they are genuine…Because the oil commands a high price…sellers are often tempted to dilute it with cheaper oils…Some bottles simply contain olive oil…coloured with paprika or other substances….

Grand History Of Argan Oil

 

This article I dedicate to the historical background of this kingly oil…Argon oil…Even the name seems of a king…Anyway

The Argan tree (formally or say scientifically known as Argania Spinosa) is one of the few still living tree species from the tertiary era (I mean the era over 65 million years ago) and it is typical of south western Morocco…

This tree was and actually is considered pious and holy…It grows from 7 to 10 metres high and is also considered a true Moroccan miracle due to its extraordinary…rare…sometimes bizarre characteristics….

This tree stands tall and does not fear drought and can withstand high temperatures up to 50 degrees Celsius…This tree has a life of more than 150 to 200 years…and if it dies it can remain dormant and then revive again in 7 years…Due to its amazingly strong and able root system…it is highly effective in preventing erosion…thereby preserving fertility of the soil and limiting the advance of the desert…So you now know what to do…to help nature…plant an Argan tree…

Hmm…moving on…I have certain typical historal facts to present before you about this tree…

  • In the 18th century during the reign of Sultan Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah the French diplomat De Chenier dedicated enormous attention to the Argan tree in his reports…
  • Thomas Barkelyan American diplomat whom U.S. President George Washington had sent on a mission to conclude a peace treaty between the two countries…reported with great interest on the Argan tree in 1786….
  • Then again…talking of 1867…the first Moroccan delegation participated in the international fair in Paris…They brought with them their exquisite products…most importantly the Argan nuts which caused a sensation among the fair’s attendees….

Hmm..thrilling it is to just be the history if a mere ‘tree’ ( okay I wont use ‘mere’ it might hurt sentiments of the believers)…

Again…In 1998…UNESCO added the Argan tree to the World Heritage list and in 2001 home institutions and foreign partners…organised the first festival dedicated to the Argan tree….Many important decisions were reached during the festival…such as long term development of the underdeveloped Berber regions…protection of the environment…and preservation of the Argan tree itself….

To present before you…facts about the usage of this tree…Lend me your eyes (it’s all literally…visual you see)

Morocco’s Berbers use Argan oil in their daily diets…it is served for breakfast together with home baked bread…and even the pieces are dipped into Argan oil and honey…A traditional Moroccan dish…There is this sweet called Amlou sweet…is considered a real delicacy…It is composed of Argan oil mixed with honey and almonds and gives energy and strength…and is also known as an aphrodisiac….

In cooking taking place at home as well as in exquisite restaurants Argan oil is added to steamed…roasted…or grilled foods which are prepared in this way to enhance flavour and provide several additional vitamins….

Argan Oil – The Eraser Of Stretch Marks

 

Stretch marks…In layman’s language…those little white lines around the waist…hip…arms…thighs…that look as if the skin had been stretched and it again became normal…or shrunk…leaving those imprints behind…

Women suffer from this mainly after pregnancy or after losing oodles of weight…They are precisely conscious about this problem…as they feel that it ruins the look of their skin…But on a very frank note…I know males who find stretch marks ‘sexy’…So are least bothered by the presence or absence of these on their female counterparts…

Anyway…I am not here to discuss that….Before you know the cure…understand the problem more formally and explicitly…

Like I mentioned before…Stretch marks usually appear because of quick gain of weight or the subsequent losing of weight…It can happen due to any reason like-

  • Pregnancy
  • Bodybuilding
  • Weight gain
  • Spurt

Among these….the stretch marks that happen due to pregnancy are most common because most of the women pass through this phase once or more through their lifetime….

See…understand….During pregnancy women gain a lot of weight quickly and retain that weight for a long period of time…Okay? Then obviously…..Human skin is naturally very elastic but obviously it has its limitations…When its elasticity limits are exceeded its elasticity breaks apart….As a result of this elasticity breakdown….fine lines appear on the skin….These fine lines are called stretch marks…Stretch marks phenomenon occurs in the middle layer of the skin called dermis…Dermis tissue under the skin may tear apart as a result of rapid stretch and thus create stretch marks or scars…

I am sure the concept must be crystal clear to you now…

Argan Oil…The Eraser…

This Argan Oil has acquired tremendous fame as a preventive and curative cosmetic product against stretch marks…It is very easily penetrable and absorbable oil leaving a silky feel…Rich in antioxidants…Argan oil is naturally formulated to work in synergy with other essential components to substantially and quickly reduce the stretch marks…It is much better to pre-empt the stretch marks than to cure them….Regular application of Argan oil during pregnancy supplements the skin against the possible breakdown of the elasticity of skin….It prevents the breakdown of essential structural proteins like collagen and elastin…It also aids the skin to rejuvenate itself by the natural regeneration of Elastin and Collagen at the cellular level….

Reason for the above action of Argan oil being…Concentration of Linoleic acid in Argan oil is three times higher than in olive oil…This essential fatty acid has a very pivotal role in the preservation of cell integrity…The higher the cell integrity the higher will be the elasticity of skin…

And even the high content of tocopherols in Argan oil gives it the ability to guard against the reactivity of free radicals…It is highly anti-stress and thus preserves the integrity and elasticity of skin and naturally protects it against oxidation….Firm and tight functioning of skin is dependent upon this elasticity and it prevents the external and internal damage to the skin….Argan oil also cures the discoloration of the skin resulting from stretch marks….

So…I am sure you have found the best solution to your problem now…So…please go through our reference links now…

Argan Oil’s Sacred Compounds

 

Apart from all he good that this oil alone does to the humans, another intriguing quality of it is that it has innumerable compounds which together make such a blend that works as magic for quite a lot many problems.

Ferulic Acid is the most abundant phenolic compound found in Argan Oil. This antioxidant helps prevent damage caused by ultraviolet light. Exposure to ultraviolet light actually increases the antioxidant potency of ferulic acid. It is often added as an ingredient of anti-aging supplements. Studies have shown that ferulic acid can decrease blood glucose levels and can be of help to diabetes patients.

It seems to protect against many types of caner, bone degeneration and menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes. Like many other antioxidants, ferulic acid reduces the level of cholesterol and triglyceride, thereby reducing the risk of heart disease.

Sterols (Phytosterols) are a class of lipid-like compounds that helps to prevent skin aging by improving skin metabolism and reducing inflammation. They promote excellent moisture retention and penetrate quickly. They are vital to the structural integrity of the cell membrane. They work in harmony with human skin because the chemical structure of plant sterols and human sterols is very similar. In the skin, human sterols are the main component of its outermost layer and play a fundamental role in aiding and maintaining optimal skin barrier function.

Two of the families of sterols found in Argan oil, namely -

  • Schottenol
  • Spinasterol

are known for their anticancer properties and are rarely found in vegetable oils. Additionally, sterols are known to block cholesterol absorption sites in the human intestine thus helping to reduce the overall amount absorbed in the body.

Vitamin E (Tocopherol) is a fat-soluble vitamin. It is a powerful antioxidant and excellent free-radical scavenger. Vitamin E protects essential fatty acids and vitamin A levels in the body. It accumulates in the epidermis and forms a barrier against moisture evaporation from the skin. Vitamin E prevents cellular aging due to oxidation, aids in bringing nourishment to cells, and decreases inflammation and strengthens capillary walls.

It has been shown to significantly help in the reduction of scarring from wounds and the appearance of stretch marks. Vitamin E’s antioxidant properties help to prevent oxidation of LDL cholesterol, the so-called “bad cholesterol”. This may lower the risk of heart disease and stroke. Research has suggested a link between vitamin E and the prevention of certain cancers and degenerative diseases.

Argan Life Oil

 

Argan essential oil is rather useful solution and deals effectively with all the skin diseases and also many chronic health problems, the oil was elevated in usefulness much before when a bunch of educated explorers stumbled across the age old traditional oil…

 

(NaturalNews) Known by the Moroccan Berber community as the “Tree of Life”, the Argan tree (Argania spinosa) has supported the people of these arid regions and their livestock for centuries. The leaves and fruit sustain goats, camels and sheep. Cattle live off the press-cake that remains after the oil has been extracted; humans eat the oil and the nut shells are used for fuel. Argan oil is produced from the kernels of the tree and is one of the rarest and most expensive oils in the world. Berber women have used Argan oil for centuries to protect and nourish their skin, hair and nails from the harsh conditions in which they live. Now Argan oil is gaining popularity as a “miracle ingredient” in the Western beauty product industry. It has extremely high levels of Vitamin E and 80% fatty acids which make it perfect for healing many skin ailments as well as protecting against premature aging caused by oxidation.
The active substances called triterpenoids that occur in Argan Oil offer amazing skin protection benefits. These include tissue healing (scars), anti-inflammatory, sun-protective and disinfectant properties.

The oil contains 80% unsaturated fatty acids and is more resistant to oxidation than olive oil.
Argan oil also contains 0.8% unsaponifiables (a large group of compounds also known as plant sterols or sterolins). Sterolins improve skin metabolism, reduce inflammation and promote excellent moisture retention.

Argan oil contains rare plant sterols (schottenol and spinasterol), not found in other oils. It is believed that these phytosterols are unique in their combination and that there are no other vegetable oils with a comparable phytosterol composition. In general phytosterols reduce inflammation and help block cholesterol absorption from the intestines. They also show anti-cancer properties.

  • Argan oil facilitates digestion by increasing the concentration of pepsin in the gastric juice. It contains flavonoids that act as a natural anti-inflammatory both internally and externally.
  • The oil is considered highly beneficial for arthritic or rheumatic conditions.
  • It is helpful for lowering cholesterol levels, stimulating circulation and strengthening the body`s natural immunity.
  • It is used to soothe skin ailments like chickenpox, acne, psoriasis, and dry eczema. It is also used to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy.
  • Traditionally Argan oil is also reputed to have aphrodisiac and tonic properties.
