Argan oil is not for nothing in any crowd of products and is a star of natural cosmetics. Why is that, you ask… I’ll tell you.
Argan oil is actually an edible oil extracted from the seed flakes of the ripe berry fruit of the argan tree. The tree is found exclusively in southwestern Morocco. Moroccans have been using argan oil forever to treat skin diseases and use it for beauty care of skin and hair. Argan oil made from the unroasted seeds has also been a big thing in the international cosmetics industry since the 1980s.
Argan oil – a true beard care hero.
Argan oil is a rich, skin-nourishing oil and contains essential fatty acids and natural vitamin E. It is equally nourishing to skin and beard, making it ideal as a beard and shaving oil. In addition, argan oil is known for its regenerating effect; skin and hair feel revitalized, nourished and soft and supple.
Argan oil gets its regenerating effect due to its content of essential fatty acids and vitamins. It contains about 40% oleic acid (omega 9), 35% linoleic acid (omega 6) and vitamin E. Your skin needs these components to stay healthy and elastic, which is why this wonderful oil is also ideal for mature skin.
The moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties help soothe flaky, dry and irritation-prone skin. It can provide relief for acne, flaking skin and burns.
Argan in beard oil? By all means!
These properties lead me to say that argan oil is basically indispensable to a good beard oil formula. In combination with jojoba, you actually already have everything your skin and beard so need. Just as in our “Simply the Best Oil”. Sure you can refine and optimize everything even further. But if you like it short and simple, this is the perfect choice. Like Bud Spencer and Terrence Hill, Argan and Jojoba get everything out of the way and put a smile on your face.
Here is our “Simply the Best” beard oil formula consisting of “only” Argan and Jojoba:
- Jojoba 4ml
- Argan 6ml
If you like it you can add essential oils, e.g.
- Bergamot 3 drops
- Lavender 5 drops
- Sandalwood 2 drops
This is in my opinion a really tasty combination. Just try it out.
