BIOCHEMICA® ARGAN OIL VIRGIN ORGANIC

INCI Name: Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil
Product Code: ARG4
CAS #: 223747-87-3
Brand: Biochemica®

Argan oil (also known as Moroccan oil) is derived from the Argania spinosa tree. This tree is known as the “healing tree” in the region of Morocco where it grows. This is one of the very few places on earth where the tree thrives and bears a multitude of seeds. From these seeds comes an exquisite oil, with excellent nutritive properties that protect and lavish the skin with moisture without having an oily or greasy skin feel. This oil is rich with triterpenoids (skin healing properties), polyphenols (inflammation reduction), tocopherols (anti-aging activity) and two exotic phytosterols (schottenol and spinasterol) that are ravenous free radical scavengers. Biochemica® Argan Oil Virgin Organic may be used in all types of soap and toiletries to improve moisturization, soften rough, dry skin, and impart luster and strength to hair. This material is USDA-NOP certified organic and its application-dependent recommended use level is between 1 and 100%.
