Argan Oil

Most often associated with – and used in – hair care, argan oil is an ingredient that goes way above and beyond making hair feel soft.

Like many natural oils, the use of argan – also known as ‘green gold’ – dates way back and has been used by Moroccan Berber women as a moisturizer for years.

More about Argan Oil

But it’s no secret that using oil on your hair isn’t always the greatest of experiences; some are too thick and heavy, and others are simply too greasy. However, argan oil is one of the beauty industry’s most magical ingredients to know about – and here’s why.

  • A plant-based oil that’s extracted from the nuts of the argan tree (its official name is Argania spinosa), which is native to Morocco. Argan oil is one of many oils that are made in the same way, but the benefits of argan oil make it one of the very best that you can use for hair and skin. Argan oil is naturally rich in fatty acids (omega 6 and 9) as well as in vitamin E.
  • Garnier’s supply of argan oil comes through a network that unites six groups of over 500 Berber women in Morocco who collect the nuts at the beginning of summer from the Argania Spinosa forest in the southwest of the country. The nuts are then sent to cooperatives that use traditional cold pressing processes (which uses mechanical pressure instead of heat) to ensure all of the argan oil’s goodness is retained. Through the programme, Garnier can guarantee fair, stable wages and good working conditions which help women, and their families, achieve greater economic independence.
  • Just like for dry, dull skin, argan oil is good for dry, dull hair, providing it with both shine and suppleness. Particularly beneficial for those grappling with lifeless, lackluster hair, argan oil infuses strands with a renewed vibrancy, gifting them with a mirror-like shine and plush suppleness.
