Soothing and antioxidant
Argan oil contains high levels of vitamin E and fatty acids, which helps to soothe, hydrate, envigorate and protect skin, scalp and hair; as well as it prevents oxidation of the skin's cells.
Argan oil is produced from the kernels of the argan tree. Lush buys it to women's co-operatives working together to source sustainable argan oil in Morocco. Argan oil is traditionally used as a treatment for skin conditions, including acne and eczema. The oil is indeed very soothing, probably thanks to the omega-6 (also called linoleic acid) it contains, a fatty acid known for its calming and healing properties on the skin. Combine with a high level of oleic acid, another fatty acid present in argan oil and in Human's sebum, it helps to restore hydration in skin and hair, as well as it conditions them.
