Frequently Asked Questions
Pure Argan Oil
100% Pure argan oil (argania spinosa kernel oil). That's it! Nothing else.
Yes! Moroccan's have been using this oil on their babies for centuries, straight away as a newborn. It's a very gentle, soothing oil, perfect for bub's sensitive skin. Suitable for bubs straight from the hopsital!
No! We know it feels counterintuitive, but not all oils are created equal. Argan oil has been scientifically proven to regulate sebum production. Over-production of sebum equals oily skin and breakouts. Argan oil helps tell your body to dial it back, ultimately evening out your skin oils and reducing any breakouts. Bonus is that it also heals the skin, so it helps repair acne scarring!
If you're applying it on dry or wet hair after your shower, you only need to apply 1-2 drops (max) of oil on your hands and lightly spread it throughout the hair. A little really goes a long way. If you're wanting to give your hair a full treatment/argan oil soak, then generously apply the oil throughout your hair, from scalp to ends. This will give an oily look for sure, so it's best to do this before bed or 30-60 mins before you shower (we do it before we go for a run or to the gym). Wash it out with your favourite shampoo after it's been soaking at least 30 minutes!
If it's still looking oily on your skin, there's a good chance you're applying too much. :) A little goes a long way with argan oil, so try applying fewer drops. Leave it 1-5 minutes to soak in before applying makeup (if you're applying it in the morning). Otherwise if you think it still looks too oily, just skip the morning application and only apply it at night before bed!
For your skin - everyday! You really only notice the benefits and results of this magical oil with regular use. For the face, use it at least every night before bed. For the drier skins, also apply it in the mornings. For the hands, lips or for eczema, apply it as much as you need throughout the day. For your hair - at least twice a week is best! Ideally it's applied before every time before you wash you hair. :)
Argan Oil for Cooking
100% Pure roasted argan oil (argania spinosa kernel oil). That's it! Nothing else.
Argan oil does come from the inside of a nut from a tree. Therefore we do recommend anyone with treenut allergies especially to confirm with their doctor before consuming. Just incase! We want to ensure you all keep safe and well. <3
It's best to eat argan oil at room temperature or on low heats, like olive oil, but there is no problem or negative effect if you cook it at high temperatures (it's just that the higher temperatures means you may not get all the same nutrient benefits)! We suggest adding it towards the end of cooking or right before serving, drizzling it on top. It's delicious and perfectly ok to bake in baked desserts and still get superfood benefits!
First of all the argan tree is ONLY grown in Southwest Morocco. This adds a unique rare factor, from the availability of the oil. Secondly, it takes one woman around three days to make just one litre of argan oil. This is what makes argan oil so valuable! There is a lot of labour intense work gone into making this wonderful oil.
