Argan oil is a completely natural substance that contains high levels of hugely beneficial vitamins and antioxidants (I'm talking about the real stuff here, not the one mixed with mineral oils).

Environmental and Cultural Benefits of Argan Oil
But it doesn't stop there; you can also feel good in knowing that the production of the oil has no harm on the environment, the Argan tree or the goats. In addition the Argan tree is actually good for the environment. They provide much needed food and shade for animals as well as preventing soil erosion. By using Moroccan oils we are really benefiting Moroccan villages as a large portion of products are manufactured by women's co-operatives, which means the benefits go to these women and their families.
Overall, this really is a wonderful and versatile oil that is wonderful for your skin, hair, the environment and the Moroccan people - a saint of the beauty world!
