Argan oil is abundant with nourishing and protective properties. It protects against premature aging due to the sun and environment; softens, moisturizes and promotes elasticity and firmness in skin. Argan oil is a great choice because of its anti-inflammatory properties and can be used on burns and bruises as well as eczema and psoriasis. Even beneficial for oily skin as it regulates sebum production in the skin and helps to heal acne blemishes, prevent new breakouts and reduces scarring. Argan nut oil has been helpful in preventing and reducing stretch marks, cellulite, wrinkles, crow’s feet and fine lines under the eyes.
