The Argan Oil Story
Argan Oil is derived from the kernals of the drought-hardy Argan tree in Morocco and is produced solely by a women’s cooperative that shares the profits among the local women of the Berber tribe. BCL supports their efforts and advocates an eco-friendly, fair and sustainable global economy.
Argan Oil is a rare and valuable resource for treating a wide range of cosmetic and medical problems. It contains a high percentage of essential fatty acids and phenols, which allows it to be more resistant to oxidation than olive oil. It also contains Vitamin A, Omega 6 and Omega 9 fatty acids which provide more antioxidant-rich benefits.
Argan Oil (also known as Moroccan Oil) has been called “Liquid Gold” and the “Oil of Life”. It is a “must have” among top beauty industry professionals, models and celebrities. This amazing oil diminishes lines (wrinkles, crow’s feet, fine lines, stretch marks), reduces spots (dark spots, acne scars, blemishes), helps clear acne, and adds strength to hair and nails. It can even help treat skin conditions such as dry skin and eczema. It is also safe enough for babies. Argan Oil hydrates and protects the skin, making it ideal for facials and body massages. Finally, it finishes the skin and hair with a beautiful, healthy glow.
