What Makes Argan Oil So Great For Hair and Skin?
Research has shown that naturally-existing fruits, vegetables and nuts have amazing properties to boost our body’s health, but did you know that many of them are beneficial for your hair and skin as well? There’s a little fruit that grows on the argan tree, and inside this fruit is a nut, or kernel. This nut is packed with beneficial nutrients such as vitamin E and fatty acids, and when used in the right products it can keep your hair sleek and shiny and skin soft and acne-free!
Argan Oil’s Hair Benefits
Unlike many other oils, argan oil isn’t greasy, which makes it the perfect conditioning treatment for your tresses. You can use it as a leave-in or overnight conditioner, or incorporate it into your daily self-care regiment for maximum benefits with your shampoo and conditioner.
2. Frizz Control
As argan oil moisturizes your hair, it’s also taming those pesky fly-aways and frizz. This is especially critical if you tend to use a flat iron, curler or dryer, since these convenient products also have a habit of drying out hair and causing strands to break or become brittle. Keep your hair naturally soft, sleek and shiny with Soapbox’s argan oil shampoo and conditioner for perfect hair days, every day.
Argan oil is known to give hair the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and strong, and a good sign of healthy hair is shine. When your hair is shiny, sleek and frizz-free, it’s telling the world it’s healthy and ready to take on the day, no matter where you go!
Argan Oil’s Skin Benefits
The same moisturizing properties that keep your hair looking and feeling great can be transposed to your skin with body lotions and soaps that use argan oil as an ingredient. As the oil moisturizes your skin, it will also restore a healthier, more youthful appearance by restoring elasticity and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. This is what makes argan oil such a popular go-to ingredient for skin care products.
Unlike many other moisturizers, argan oil is non-greasy and non-irritating, so it’s safe to use for most skin types. It’s a natural ingredient as well, so you can feel confident about what you’re using on your body as you enjoy the benefits of vitamin E and fatty acids, giving your skin a drink of moisture to keep it soft and glowing. Check out our Sea Minerals & blue Iris lotion, infused with this amazing oil.
If you have easily-irritated or dry skin, or have experienced minor burns, then you want to grab a soap and moisturizer with argan oil. While many products for protection and healing can have adverse effects on the skin, this oil can help reduce inflammation and help your skin heal faster without causing added discomfort.
4. Stretch Marks
The same vitamin E that keeps your skin moisturized with argan oil is also going to help with stretch marks by improving the elasticity of your skin. This is fantastic news for anyone experiencing a life change such as pregnancy, and can boost your confidence by keeping your skin in great shape.
Argan Oil for Acne-Prone Skin
Remember that argan oil has anti-inflammatory properties? These same benefits can extend to acne-prone skin, soothing your skin and promoting healing. This non-greasy oil is going to provide moisture and balance your skin to keep it from being too dry or too oily while reducing inflammation and replenishing any damaged skin cells. The result? Gorgeous skin!
Will Argan oil Clog Your Pores?
As with anything, if your skin has a sensitivity to the ingredient then there is a small chance that argan oil could potentially clog your pores. Unlike other oils like olive oil, however, argan oil is known as a low-risk oil that more than likely won’t pose any threats. In fact, it will do just the opposite by keeping your skin beautiful, clean and acne-free!
