Benefits of Argan Oil
Atlas Argan Australia is 100% pure organic argan oil, sourced from the foothills of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. Produced from the kernel of the argan tree, argan oil has recently become widely used in the Western world for therapeutic and cosmetic purposes. Its high vitamin E and fatty acid content makes it ideal for nourishing and repairing hair, skin and nails.
Vitamin E is an essential nutrient for the body but has also been proven beneficial in hair and skin health. Vitamin E contains antioxidant properties which help prevent hair loss, stimulate hair growth, help reduce acne and wrinkles, as well as protect the skin from UV rays.
Argan oil also contains the essential fatty acids Omega 6 and Omega 9 which are easily absorbed by the skin, without leaving any greasy residue. Fatty acids are known to help nourish and strengthen hair, skin and nails in addition to reducing inflammation that is common with skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and acne.
Our top 9
Here are some of the ways that we incorporate argan oil into our daily beauty regime.
Anti – Frizz Serum
Argan oil is our go-to anti-frizz serum. By applying a few small drops to hair it helps control frizz and flyaways often caused by styling, sun damage and humidity. Argan oil aids in cell regeneration acting as a moisturiser for hair, strengthening and speeding up hair growth and minimising split ends.
Intensive Hair Treatment
Ideal as an intensive hair treatment, argan oil will make your hair feel super silky and soft in no time. Simply massage a generous amount of argan oil to your scalp, 8-10 drops, then work your way down to the ends of your hair. Leave hair covered in a towel or shower cap overnight and wash the next morning for freshly restored strands. Intensive hair treatments can be done weekly or as needed depending on your individual needs. Bleached or damaged hair will benefit from 2-3 treatments per week.
Fight the Signs of Ageing
Argan oil has been proven to fight signs of ageing and improve skin elasticity, making it ideal for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Daily use contributes to a healthy glow and leaves skin smooth and hydrated. Apply a few drops directly onto your face and neck morning and/or night after cleansing for best results.
Eczema, Psoriasis, Dermatitis and Other Skin Conditions
The vitamin E and fatty acids found in argan oil help repair dry and damaged skin, often caused by skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. Argan oil is a natural anti-inflammatory extremely effective in treating rashes and itchy skin. The essential fatty acids in argan oil assist skin to retain moisture, promote cell rejuvenation and restore skin integrity.
Argan oil assists the skin to regulate the production of sebum which can lead to acne breakouts. Applying a small amount of argan oil after cleansing your face helps prevent breakouts and promote clear, blemish free skin. The vitamin E content of argan oil also aids in fading acne scars, stimulating new cell growth and removing damaged cells.
