- Help remove damaged cells and help new ones grow, therefore fading acne scars
Argan oil is a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree (Argania spinosa L.), endemic to Morocco, and it is valued for its nutritive, cosmetic and numerous medicinal properties.
A rich natural source of essential fatty acids particularly linoleic acid which protects the skin from harmful free radicals, it also contains a balanced amount of vitamins A and E, both of which play a crucial role in improving the skin condition.
The polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E present in the oil have excellent antioxidant qualities. These substances promote oxygenation within the cells and neutralize the adverse effects of free radicals. This way the oil provides protection to the skin while restoring the vital nutrients inside the skin cells.
Unroasted argan oil is traditionally used as a treatment for skin diseases and as a cosmetic oil for skin and hair. It is effective against juvenile acne and psoriasis as well.
Argan oil moisturizes the skin. In fact, it is far more effective when compared to any other natural skin moisturizer like olive oil or shea butter. This is because it does not contain any cholesterol. Moreover, its fatty acids do a better job of improving the skin tone. It reduces the greasy feeling of oily skin and has the ability to control the action of sebum (one of the main causes of acne).
Argan oil posseses amazing antimicrobial properties which enable it to fight off skin infections like acne. It is also effective in significantly reducing skin inflammation and irritation. It helps to maintain the pH balance of the skin. Thus protecting the skin from the harmful effects of sun-exposure, pollution, and smoking and environmental toxins. It has the remarkable ability to reduce the appearance of the ugly marks left behind by acne, chickenpox and even the scars of skin injuries caused by burns./p>
Regular application rehydrates the skin, restores its natural elasticity and thus tightens up the skin. This way the anti-aging properties of the oil nourish the aging skin and control wrinkles.
Women who use mostly mineral make-up tend to get dry skin after its prolonged use. Regular use of argan oil can prevent this from occurring. This is why we recommend RG-Cell as a base layer before any other cosmetics or cosmeceuticals are applied.
