Spotlight: Argan Oil Benefits For Your Hair

We’re shining the spotlight on hero ingredients found in AG’s top-rated products, and today’s feature is organic Moroccan argan oil – the key ingredient in our best-selling Smooth category. Read on to learn the many ways argan oil can benefit all hair types!

What Is It

Argan tree in Morocco

Argan oil is a plant-based oil extracted from argan trees, which grow in Morocco. Traditionally, the nuts are harvested by hand then dried in open air before they are ground and pressed – a process that can take days to complete. The pressing of ground argan nuts results in pure, unfiltered argan oil. The liquid is then left to rest for approximately two weeks as solid settles to the bottom.

How It Works

Argan oil took the beauty industry by storm – and for good reason! Packed with moisturizing and healing properties, this “liquid gold” has proved to work wonders when applied to skin and hair. Some of its key nutrients include vitamin E, abundant antioxidants and omega-6 fatty acids all of which are known to help  smooth and nourish even the driest of hair types.

When you use any AG Smooth product, you’re helping women in one of the poorest regions of Morocco lead change. That’s because the argan in Smooth is sourced using sustainable and organic farming methods and is produced by local women of the Berber tribe. The income these women receive gives them independence, supports their families, and helps educate their children.
