Argan oil, a natural ingredient with multiple virtues

The argan oil is a very nourishing vegetable oil, used since centuries by Berber women. At Shaeri, we use the argan oil in our products for its nourishing and regenerating properties.

Argan oil

Argan oil or "Moroccan oil" is made from the kernel of the fruit of the argan tree, a tree that grows mainly in the Souss plain (southwest Morocco).
The manufacture of argan oil is an artisanal activity, traditionally reserved for Berber women in cooperatives. They delicately extract the almonds contained in the kernel of the fruit of the tree. These "almonds" are crushed and transformed into a paste. This paste is then mixed and kneaded with warm water to obtain an oil: argan oil.

The many benefits of argan oil

This oil has many qualities including many cosmetic properties. Argan oil contains several components with many benefits: essential fatty acids (omega 6 and 9), vitamin E (tocopherols), vitamin A and antioxidants.

Argan oil is known for its nourishing and regenerating properties. It provides a deep hydration. Argan oil is the ideal care to rehydrate and strengthen the hair against external aggressions (heat of the hair dryer or curling iron, UV rays, dry cold and wind, salt water from the sea or chlorinated water ...). It can indeed be used as a preventive measure, before a swim for example. 

In addition to a good hydration, the hair also needs nutrition. Produced by the scalp, it is the sebum that ensures the protection of the hair fiber. If sebum is not produced in sufficient quantities and the hair lacks nutrition, it becomes dry, dull and rough. The lengths become brittle and split ends. Argan oil allows to nourish and regenerate in depth the hair, from the tip to the root. It acts in the heart of the hair fiber. Applied regularly, it keeps hair soft and silky, shiny and easy to comb.

The argan oil also makes it possible to better structure the curls of the hair. At Shaeri, we use the argan oil in our leave-in cream. The argan oil helps to soften and to redraw the curls of the wavy, curly or frizzy hair which, naturally, regulate their hydration less well and react more easily to moisture (with the appearance of "frizz").
