Nourish and protect your skin and hair with our newly launched Argan Carrier Oil, which is easily hydrating, conditioning, and softening without leaving a greasy residue. Popularly known as the “Liquid Gold,” it can be used alone to enhance the appearance and texture of skin and hair with its rich fatty acid and antioxidant content. It can also be used to dilute your favorite essential oil for topical use.

Endemic in Morocco, Argania Spinosa is smooth, silky, and absorbs quickly into the skin. Argan oil is extracted directly from its kernel. Crafting 1 kg of oil necessitates 30 kg of Argan nuts.

Argan Carrier Oil boasts a plethora of applications, spanning from medicinal to cosmetic purposes.

  • Contains a subtle or nearly absent oily aroma
  • Perfect component for DIY soaps, creams, and shampoos
  • Rich in vitamin E, carotenes, antioxidants, and crucial fatty acids, offering a range of benefits for the skin, hair, and overall health 
  • Suitable for massages and facials
  • Nurtures the hair, imparting a glossy and vibrant appearance
  • Provides relief while softening, hydrating, providing strength to the skin, while boosting its elasticity
  • On feet, hands, and nails, it moisturizes and conditions damaged hair and skin that appears to be cracked and splitting, while preventing future dryness
  • Boosts immunity

  • Use as a fast-absorbing, non-greasy moisturizer for the skin. Apply directly to damp skin after a shower or bath.
  • Use as a hair treatment to help improve hair texture and shine. Simply apply a few drops to your palms and then work it through damp hair, focusing on the ends.
  • Can be used as a nighttime serum to soothe acne, balance skin’s oil production, and reduce the appearance of stretch marks, wrinkles, and scars.
  • Apply to nails and cuticles to help moisturize and strengthen them and promote healthier nail growth.

Most essential oils are so potent in their pure form that they need to be diluted prior to topical use. Argan is a perfect carrier oil for diluting pure essential oils in skincare, natural beauty, haircare, first-aid, and more.

Benefits of dilution include:

Increased Absorption: Many pure essential oils are so volatile that they begin to evaporate once exposed to the air, losing their potency and fragrance. If these oils are applied directly to the skin, they won’t absorb properly. By blending them with Argan carrier oil, you maximize the absorption time and prevent evaporation.

Prevent Skin Sensitivity and Irritation: Pure essential oils should never be applied directly to the skin in their undiluted form. They may cause sensitivity, irritation, or allergic reactions. Even if a tiny amount is applied to the skin, it may still cause damage over time. By diluting pure oils in a carrier oil, you can use them safely and limit the risk of sensitivity and irritation.

Increased Effectiveness: Diluting your essential oils in a carrier oil actually increases their effectiveness because the carrier oil allows them to be fully absorbed through the skin. Carrier oils also give you more applications from one bottle, which extends your supply of essential oils for topical use.

As part of our S.A.A.F.E. Promise™, we provide FAMES (Fatty Acid Methyl Esters) test results from a verified third party, independent lab for each one of our essential oil products.

FAMES tests verify the purity and quality of all our oils, so you can trust that you're using the very best carrier oils and other essential oil products on the market.
