The quintessence of beauty
Argan oil possesses a very high percentage of essential fatty acids such as linoleic acid and oleic acid as well as dazzling with outstanding moisturizing and cell-regenerating properties. Its vitamin E content is markedly higher than that of olive oil, and it also scores extra points with the highest proven content so far of anti-inflammatory vegetable sterols such as schottenol and spinasterol. Plus, fabulous anti-aging qualities result from the high proportion of tocopherols and polyphenols.
The world’s noblest oil
It is the most expensive oil in the world, and its fruit grows only in one place – in south-western Morocco: Argan oil. Six times more expensive than the best olive oil and apparently particularly health-giving, argan oil is the latest craze in gourmet gastronomy and cosmetics. Galileo, a German television programme, has investigated it in depth.
Anti-aging – from the inside. Hyaluronic acid is a natural hydrophilic (moisture binder) that is effective not only in the skin but throughout the whole body. This active ingredient, indispensable for the beauty industry, is based on a chain of sugar molecules that can bind a very large amount of water. Hyaluron is a wonder-moisturizer that leaves your skin looking smooth and firm, gives it more elasticity and stimulates the production of collagen.
Urea stimulates the moisture supply process inside the skin and is one of the most effective and well-tolerated ingredients for dry skin and its accompanying symptoms such as tautness, itching or redness.
The oil of the borage plant has a very high content of gamma-linoleic acid. This is successful in treating skin disorders such as neurodermatitis; it also has a regenerative effect on the skin as well as having anti-inflammatory and firming properties.
