Safety / Purity
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.
