Pure Argan Oil – There are many brands of argan oil on the market. It is not a beauty product “only” but also offers several benefits that improve your personal care of hair and skin.
To take advantage of these benefits, it is wise to choose a high quality product. How do you know which brand is best and of high quality? Learn about some of the most important criteria for choosing pure argan oil.
Pay attention to the ingredient
Pay attention to the product being 100% pure and not a mix of various – likely less valuable, oils and other non-essential additives. How do you tell it’s pure? Simple. Examine the ingredients. If nothing other than “Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil” is listed, the product is ONE HUNDRED % pure. However, if you see numerous other ingredients provided on the label, the product may not supply the high quality expected.
Not only do you waste your money on an inferior product, but you also don’t get to reap all the benefits that pure argan oil has to offer – it would be a shame if you missed out on that.
Machine-pressed oil is a better choice
The method of extraction by hand – as has been a tradition for many years, may support local farmers by giving them a job. However, the process of hand-pressing involves mixing the argan paste after extraction with water to separate the oil.
Micro-organisms flourish in moist environments and could develop more easily while the argan oil is processed. This would reduce not only the shelf-life of the oil but also its value. Mechanical oil extraction in modern facilities offer better hygienic conditions and allow for a higher quality end product.
Be mindful of the smell
Don’t get fooled by a nice, flowery smell. Argan oil has a nutty smell that reminds of olive oil. It does not smell like potpourri. If it does, fragrances were added to the product. There are hundreds of synthetic fragrances in the cosmetics industry. Many of them were found to be carcinogenic.
Select a product that is cold-pressed
Any heat-treatment destroys the natural elements in argan oil that are so beneficial for moisturizing and nourishing your hair and skin. If a product label indicates the contents to include fragrances, you can assume it’s heat-treated. One very common process to add fragrances to cosmetics is by the method of vaporizing at high temperatures.
Hopefully, these tips are helpful. Don’t just look at the price. A low-priced product is likely of inferior quality. High quality argan oil has its price. Since the argan tree only grows in Morocco – hence the alternative name “Moroccan Argan Oil,” there is only so much that can be produced every year which naturally affects the price. Also be watchful for the smell, method of production and ingredients used for the in the production of the argan oil product you’re purchasing.
