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….

  • Vitamin E

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…

Under The Aegis Of Argan Tree

Heard a lot of the oil…Argan..I think it is time for me to enlighten you about the mommy of argan oil…the one that gave birth to this wonderful…helpful…amazing…thing…

Hmm…Read on…to know about…Argan…The tree..

The Argan tree is thorny and can reach heights of 8-10 metres…probably originated in Argana…a village north-east of Agadir…It lives longer than the olive and requires no cultivation…

When goats eat the frui…the fleshy part is digested but the nut remains…It is later…the nuts are collected by farmers to produce oil…

The production of argan oil…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….

About what it looks like…The trunk of the argan is often twisted and gnarled…allowing goats to clamber along its branches and feed on the leaves and fruit…

As for the fruit of it…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…

Argan oil is slightly 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
  • strengthening the body’s natural defences

Also…Internationally…It is a part of 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…just a tad tastier…

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…

Households that make their own argan oil tend to use if for general cooking…Because it is expensive to buy…others may use it more sparingly…flavouring salads

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…

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…

Culinary Care – Argan Oil

Argan oil is one of those countable natural essential oils that have great say in the world market because of they can be efficiently used for so many purposes. They are not just a cure to any one ailment but can even work as enhancers to many needful places on the human body.

For centuries before modern times, the Berbers (indigenous people of Morocco) of this area would collect undigested argan pits from the waste of goats which climb the trees to eat their fruit. The pits were then ground and pressed to make the nutty oil used in cooking and cosmetics. However, the oil used in products available for sale today has most likely been harvested and processed with machines in a verifiably clean and sanitary way, namely -

  • cosmetic
  • culinary

The oil was sold in Moroccan markets even before the Phoenicians arrived, yet the hardy argan tree has been slowly disappearing. Overgrazing by goats and a growing, wood-hungry local population have whittled the number of surviving trees down to less than half of what it was 50 years ago. The tree is a relic of the Earth’s Tertiary Period, which ended about 1.6 million years ago, and it grows in only a few other places in the world. It is tenacious, withering and fruitless during extended droughts, and it lives as long as 200 years.

Argan oil is used for dipping bread, on couscous, salads and similar uses. “Amlou” a thick brown paste with a consistency similar to peanut butter is produced by stone grinding roasted almond and Argan oil and is considered a favorite local bread dip. The unroasted oil is traditionally used as a treatment for skin diseases, and has found favour with the cosmetics industry.

Supporting Women All argan sold today is produced by a women’s cooperative that shares the profits among the local women of the Berber tribe. The cooperative has established an ecosystem reforestation project so that the supply of argan oil will not run out and the income that is currently supporting the women will not disappear. The money is providing healthcare and education to the local women, and supporting the entire community as a whole.

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….

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.
