Discover Pure Argan Oil
Argan oil is known as the liquid gold of Morocco. This rare oil is made from the nuts of the Argan tree, which grows in no other part of the world except in the Southwestern region of Morocco. It is high in vitamin E and is known as the purest anti-oxidant. This golden colored oil also contains high levels of phytotestorols, squalene, essential fatty acids and unsaturated fatty acids.
For many centuries, Moroccan Argan oil has been used extensively as part of women’s beauty regimen and in the treatment of various skin conditions. A few drops of this precious elixir can help revitalize hair, skin and nails. Today, Moroccan Argan oil has found its way into the mainstream, as more and more cosmetic companies now use it in their moisturizing, anti-wrinkle and age defying products. It is the latest miracle ingredient in the modern day beauty industry.
This truly powerful and amazing oil can do wonders for you from head to toe! Here are just some of the things that this multi-tasking oil have been known to do.

I was curious whether the Moroccan Argan Oil would be effective for me. So the day after I got them, I tried it on my stretchmarks. I had stretchmarks on my tummy and on my legs due to pregnancy. SO far, almost 2 weeks of using it, I see a slight improvement. Some have lightened, some have disappeared especially those that are only starting to show up.
The Moroccan Argan Oil is not greasy. I think the oil is quickly absorbed by the skin. It doesn't smell bad either.
I want to try it in my hair soon and see the difference.
The bottle is still have full but I am planning to buy another bottle already.
