Won’t oil clog my pores?
Argan oil is easily absorbed into the skin and won’t clog pores. Some other oils, such as mineral oil, should be avoided as it sits on the surface of the skin without penetrating and has no cosmetic value.
Is it possible to eat argan oil?
Yes. Argan oil has excellent nutritional properties and has been shown to decrease cholesterol. Our argan oil is cosmetic grade, which means it has been cold-pressed to preserve the beneficial cosmetic properties of the oil. For the culinary oil, argan nuts are roasted before the oil is extracted to impart a nuttier taste. It is still possible to eat the cosmetic oil, and it is delicious for dipping bread. However, it is an expensive use for our argan oil.
How do I best store Argan Oil?
Argan Oil should be kept in stable temperatures and, if possible, away from direct light. That said, refrigerating products, especially if you live in a hot climate, will help preserve it.
I’ve noticed variations in the scent of your argan oil. Why?
We personally source our argan oil from different cooperatives throughout southwest Morocco. Cooperatives in different regions produce oil with slightly different aromas- some fruitier, some nuttier. As with any crop, variations can occur depending on climate and the quality of the harvest that year.
How can I use Arganio Argan Oil in my hair?
Argan oil is an excellent conditioner for hair. It depends on your hair type whether or not you should leave it in or not. While argan oil is a lightweight oil, fine hair can appear greasy if oil is left in. For coarser dry hair, argan oil is a great way to tame the frizz. To condition and style damp or dry hair, apply 2-3 drops into the ends and work upwards, making sure to avoid applying at the hairline. To give your scalp and hair a deep moisturizing treatment, massage argan oil into scalp, leave for ten minutes, and wash as usual.
Why are the bottles blue?
Sunlight breaks down the properties of Argan Oil. We house our Argan oil in a dark blue glass to protect your oil and maintain its effectiveness.
How long will my bottle be good for?
Since Argan Oil is naturally high in tocopherols, it will be fresh for quite a while! Tocopherol is a natural preservative that keeps things in their original state – thus automatically preserving the oil without us needing to add anything to it. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) says that the shelf life of Argan Oil is 24 months after bottling.
