Key Components of Argan Oil

Tocopherols (Vitamin E)

Vitamin E is very high in antioxidants and plays a key role in protecting your skin from ultraviolet light, pollution, and free radicals. Vitamin E also regulates Vitamin A in the body, which is important for healthy skin. Sun protection is another benefit of Vitamin E due to its antioxidant properties, which protects your skin from sun damage and skin cancer. Argan oil helps protect skin with its high levels of Vitamin E.

Carotenes

Carotenes contain a vast amount of Vitamin A that help protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Carotenes are effective anti-aging components preventing and correcting the damage that’s already present. Argan oil is very high in carotenes making it a natural and powerful agent against sun damage.

Essential Fatty Acids

Essential Fatty Acids are extremely important for your skin when taken internally or when applied externally. Lacking EFAs can result in dry, flaky skin and skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. EFAs are known for their anti-inflammatory effects on skin and making it soft and supple. EFAs can also improve the appearance of your skin by keeping it moist and increasing its strength. Argan oil contains as much as 80% of essential fatty acids and has shown to be extremely beneficial for people with photo-aged skin, as well as on scars.

Squalene

Squalene is a natural, organic component present in all plants and animals. Argan oil contains very high levels of squalene, which protects against skin cancer, helps soothe dry skin, and protects it from free radicals.

Ferulic Acid

Ferulic acid, also known as 4-hydroxy-3-methoxycinnamic acid, is a potent plant antioxidant and polyphenol that stabilizes Vitamins C and E. This doubles the power of the vitamins and boosts their ability to neutralize free radicals.

Phytosterols

Argan oil contains phytosterols, which lend anti-aging benefits by promoting new collagen production that is lost from sun exposure and aging.

Polyphenols

Argan oil contains polyphenols, which are natural plant components that have anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and antioxidant properties.

Natural Antioxidants

Argan oil is loaded with natural antioxidants such as Vitamin E, ferulic acid, polyphenols, and carotenes.

Triterpene Alcohols

Argan oil contains about 20% of triterpene alcohols, which are well known for their anti-inflammatory properties.

Prostaglandin

Argan oil contains prostaglandin, a lipid compound, which is derived from fatty acids. Prostaglandin acts as a natural anti-inflammatory that aids in cell growth and has strong physiological effects such as relaxing smooth muscle tissue.
