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.

  • Palms

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 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.
