Argan Oil Vs Shea Butter

 

Heard of Argan oil…heard of Shea butter…Heard of their amazing and unusual benefits…

But…Ever heard of a fight between the two?

Well…I am the referee fot his ring…And Ladies and Gentlemen…I present before you…the illustrious…Shea Butter…And the Apparent best…Argan Oil…

Read on to decide yourself…which one is the ‘really’ better oil

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…

Okay…now coming to the medicinal properties…these oils have excellent moisturizing properties we have combined Shea Butter and Argan oil are hence a part of many Anti-Aging products….

Argan oil is specially amazing…The aroma of this oil is slightly nutty and dissipates in a few minutes….the  best part of this oil being…it penetrates deep into the skin…So that’s how…the application of argan oil at night before sleeping gives you ultra soft skin in the morning…

So…at the end of the day…I am not surprised to announce that the winner of this competition is the invincible…the best…the most beneficial….Argan Essential Oil…Happy using!

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’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 Oil – Official Info

 

Argan oil is one of the best essential oils that enhance the skin and deeply remove unwanted bacteria residing there. The oil has many properties that make it top the list of the most efficient essential oils.

Argan oil presents an exceptional percentage of essential fatty acids, one of which is linoleic acid (omega 6) ensuring the functions of repair and defence of the skin. They stimulate intracellular oxygenation and thus favour the restoration of the hydrolipidic film and ensure the indispensable moisturizing of the skin.

The essential fatty acids fight against drying and the loss of elasticity, which leads to the appearance of wrinkles.

This beneficial action is reinforced by a very high content in Vitamin E (tocopherols) which has moisturizing and healing properties and is one of the most powerful biological antioxidants in neutralizing free radicals. Vitamin E protects the cell membranes against lipid oxidization and thus slows down the process of skin ageing.

Fatty acid Percentage: Palmitic 12.0%, Stearic 6.0%,Oleic 42.8%, Linoleic 36.8%, Linolenic <0.5%. Argan oil is exceptionally rich in natural tocopherols (vitamin E), rich in phenols and phenolic acid, rich in carotenes, rich insqualene, rich in essential fatty acids, 80% unsaturated fatty acids[6][unreliable source?] and depending on extraction method more resistant to oxidation than olive oil.

  •  Used as a nourishing facial treatment and night oil, as a skin protector in cold weather, or as an after-sun soother and moisturizer;
  • Anti-wrinkle effect; reduces signs of ageing caused by sun and wind, stress or the natural ageing process and prevents dehydration; helps to renew cell structure and revitalizes skin for more elasticity;
  • Helps repair damaged and over processed hair, may treat dandruff and possibly hair loss; when your hair is dry or dim and breaks, argan oil restores to a natural and shiny glow;
  • Recommended for nail care, split and broken nails will be strengthened;
  • Helps to prevent the formation of stretch marks and reduces their appearance;
  • Reduces active blemishes and visible scars; avoids scar tissue when treated against acne and varicose veins and strengthens the skin;

Free Notes On Argan Oil

 

Argan oil is an oil extracted from the seeds of the argan tree, which is native to Southwestern Morocco. There are a number of uses for argan oil as well as for other products from the argan tree, and demand is often high for genuine argan products.

Since argan oil is difficult to extract, it tends to be very expensive, and this cost is passed on in products which contain argan oil, even in trace amounts. Depending on what you want to use the oil for, you may be able to find it in a health food store or a cosmetic shop; consumers can also order argan oil from cooperatives in Morocco.

To extract argan oil, people must remove an outer layer of pulpy flesh from a hard seed which must be cracked open to get at the seeds inside. The flesh does not smell very appealing, and it is also not very tasty; it is typically used as mulch or animal feed. The cracked shells are burned as a source of -

  • Fuel
  • Wood from downed argan trees
  • Make furnishings

Moroccans make very efficient use of this ancient tree.

Traditionally, women have produced argan oil, first toasting the seeds to release a rich, nutty flavor and then grinding them by hand to extract the oil. The resulting paste can be pressed to get as much oil as possible, and then fed to animals as a nutritious dietary supplement. The dark oil has a rich flavor which appears in some Moroccan foods, classically amlou, a dip for bread, and less toasted oil is used for cosmetics. It is also possible to recover seeds from the feces of goats, as the digestive process softens the hard shells, but these seeds tend to have a pungent odor which makes them less desirable.

This oil is naturally high in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, making it an excellent dietary supplement. It is also very good for the skin; vitamin E can help smooth cracked hands, knees, and elbows while nourishing the skin, and essential fatty acids can promote healthy skin as well. These benefits have made argan oil popular in cosmetics for centuries in Morocco and beyond, and small vials of the costly oil are often on offer at high-end cosmetic stores.
