Elixir Ingredient: The Power of Argan Oil

Elixir Ingredient: The Power of Argan Oil

NH Elixir Luxury Face Oil is compromised of nine different precious plant oils. Each one contains different nutrients, playing a unique part and working synergistically to address a multitude of skin concerns. 

One of these powerful ingredients is argan oil. Argan oil is a deeply hydrating substance, containing Vitamin A and twice as much Vitamin E as olive oil. It is also rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants which all combat signs of premature aging.  It naturally plumps up, tightens and softens skin. Its healing properties combat dryness and discomfort. It also speeds up healing for skin that has suffered sun damage or any other kind of cracking, burning or irritation.  It is also ideal for preventing or treating stretch marks and fading scars and sun spots. The saponins in argan oil also empower your skin to regenerate, promoting increased cell turnover, resulting in a more youthful, glowing appearance.  

We source our argan oil from Morocco.  It is traditionally harvested by the Berber women, indigenous to North Africa. They are known for their soft, line-free, glowing skin, despite living in a dry and arid desert environment. This is thanks to argan oil. They also harvest the argan nuts, dry them, crack open to expose the kernel, grind into a paste, and squeeze to extract the thick, rich oil. 

The argan tree has become endangered and because of its importance to Morocco's ecosystem, the government has subsidized programs in place to encourage argan harvesting. Their work helps to preserve and regenerate argan forests. It also creates jobs and enables the women working as harvesters to support and care for their families in the process. 

All the more reason to enjoy the incredible benefits of this miracle oil!
