Argan oil is extracted from the kernels of the argan tree, which grows in the sandy semi-desert soil in Morocco. Traditionally, argan oil has been used as a dip for bread, as a dressing on couscous and salads, and it has also been used as a treatment for skin diseases. Argan oil contains high levels of vitamin E (tocopherols), carotenes, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids.
Depending on the method of extraction, it may also be more resistant to oxidation than even olive oil (an oil renowned for its relative stability). In addition to its continuing popularity in skin creams, argan oil has recently been researched for its reduction in the risk factors of cardiovascular disease.

Argan Oil and Cardiovascular Disease
It has become generally accepted in the literature that argan oil reduces cardiovascular disease risk, and that it can be used to prevent risk factors for atherosclerosis. Studies examining the effects of supplementation found that people taking argan oil had higher vitamin E levels, approximately 10% lower total and LDL (bad) cholesterol, and nearly 12% lowered triglycerides. In Type II diabetics with dyslipidemia, it was also found to have a lasting antioxidant effects that protected against further oxidation of fats in the body even after supplementation had been ceased. The alteration of blood lipid profiles and the increase in antioxidant status both work together to help prevent atherosclerosis and resulting cardiovascular disease.

Argan Oil in Cosmetics
Argan oil contains oleic acid, palmitic acid, and linoleic acid, all of which are beneficial for the skin. It is also a good source of vitamin E (tocopherols) as well as other antioxidants, such as ferulic acid. Because of this, argan oil has gained popularity in cosmetic uses to benefit dry skin and prevent the visible signs of aging caused by free-radical damage. Interestingly, these results could likely also be achieved by ingestion instead of topical use, with the added benefit of cardioprotective effects.

How do I take Argan Oil?
Argan oil is available by itself or in combination in a number of supplements. It can also be found in cosmetic products and skin creams. The current recommended dose for ingestion is 1-2 Tablespoons daily.

Important Information about Argan Oil
Argan oil is high in oleic acid, which has been shown to be comedogenic and may clog the pores when used topically. There is no available safety information for use during pregnancy and lactation so oral supplementation should be avoided at these times.

Wrinkles form when the skin loses its elasticity and maintains a permanent crease. It usually happens around the eyes, cheeks and lips because these areas repetitively form facial expressions like smiling or frowning. The most important factor in the development of wrinkles is sun exposure. Damage from UVA rays, which are present all year round, can attribute to up to 90 percent of skin aging. Other factors that contribute to wrinkled skin are nutritional status, habitual facial expressions, stress, skin care, environmental pollutants, smoking and heredity
