It has only been in recent years that Moroccan Argan oil has entered the worldwide stage of beauty with many purporting to its amazing hydrating qualities for haircare. I for one hadn’t yet stepped onto the bandwagon and used this product before, however after some education from Habiba on the quality of the argan oil and its benefits I couldn’t wait to start using my sample bottle. So keen I was to use it, I actually started that very night by applying some of the oil onto my face and neck.
Now here is where the education comes in. Ayelli’s argan oil is completely natural and contains no added chemicals unlike some well known argan oil brands. These brands use chemicals alongside the argan oil element to save on production costs. This is because the process of obtaining the oil and processing it is quite laborious and requires approximately 20 hours and 30kg of fruit to produce just 1 litre of argan oil! That’s a lot of fruit needed for our hair and skincare needs!
When purchasing argan oil Habiba says the key is to look at the ingredients and if the product recommends you don’t use it directly on your skin then it usually means it has some chemicals inside. Whereas, Ayelli oil can be used directly on the skin in its pure and undiluted form.
Habiba is using her first hand knowledge of the argan tree and the oil’s benefits to educate consumers into buying the real deal and also use the oil to its maximum.
“Argan oil has twice the percentage of tocopherols and vitamin E as olive oil, making it a powerful antioxidant. Vitamin E reduces wrinkles by restoring the skin’s water layer, and it moisturizes and relieves inflammation. Argan Oil also contains high levels (80%) of unsaturated fatty acids, Omega 6 and 9, which fight against dry hair and skin, and the skin’s loss of elasticity.” – Habiba Raffa.
And as everyone knows it can also be used to hydrate and style your hair adding moisture to help to maintain the dreaded frizz and dry ends. For all the ways you can use this oil and the associated benefits click here.
You can purchase this oil online here or you can purchase the full size bottle at The Nail Social. At $68 for a 50ml bottle it is really reasonable considering it will probably last a regular user 4-6 months or 12 months for someone not using it everyday.
