Description

Argan Oil, one of the rarest oils of the world is pressed from the fruits of The Argan Tree – The Tree of Life in Morocco. Argan oil has many cosmetic and nutritional benefits and has been used for centuries by Moroccans.

Argan oil is produced through a labour intensive process primarily by Moroccan women in June and August. They harvest the ripe fruit that has fallen to the ground. This fruit is dried for several weeks in the sun, and then the women crack the nut between two rocks to extract the precious, oil-rich seeds. The nut is reputed to be sixteen times harder than a hazelnut. This work is hard: in one working day, a woman can produce from 1 to 1.5kg of seeds. 100kg of ripe fruit will become 60kg of dry fruit: 30 kg of dry pulp and 30 kg of nuts. Of the 30kg of nuts, only 3kg of seeds will be extracted. That 3kg of seed will provide around 1 litre of oil after cold pressing. The seeds are ground to a paste using a rotary hand stone and a quern. Water is then added to the paste and it is squeezed by hands to extract the oil. This manual process extracts 70% of the oil from the seeds.

Cosmetics

Argan oil contains exceptionally high levels of essential fatty acids, including linoleic acid (omega-6), which protect and repair the skin. These fatty acids also stimulate intracellular oxygenation, helping to restore the vital balance of water and fats in the hydro lipid film of the skin. Argan oil helps to prevent the occurrence of wrinkles and stretch marks, soothes skin irritations and reduces scars. Moroccans have long appreciated the unique qualities of argan oil, and apply it generously to their skin, nails and hair. It is also commonly used to moisturize the tender skin of their babies. Argan oil, which is often referred to as liquid gold, is believed to have age-defying and restorative properties and, as such, is becoming increasingly sought after in the multi million dollar beauty industry.

L’huile d’argan, l’une des huiles les plus rares du monde est pressée des fruits de l’arbre argan – L’arbre de vie au Maroc. L’huile d’argan a de nombreux avantages cosmétiques et nutritionnels et a été utilisé pendant des siècles par les Marocains.

L’huile d’argan est produite par un processus à forte intensité de main-d’œuvre principalement par des femmes marocaines en juin et août. Ils récoltent les fruits mûrs qui sont tombés au sol. Ce fruit est séché pendant plusieurs semaines au soleil, puis les femmes craquent la noix entre deux roches pour extraire les précieuses graines riches en huile. La noix est réputée être seize fois plus difficile qu’une noisette. Ce travail est difficile : en un jour ouvrable, une femme peut produire de 1 à 1,5 kg de graines. 100 kg de fruits mûrs deviendront 60 kg de fruits secs : 30 kg de pulpe sèche et 30 kg de noix. Sur les 30 kg de noix, seulement 3 kg de graines seront extraites. Ces 3 kg de graines fourniront environ 1 litre d’huile après pressage à froid. Les graines sont broyée à une pâte à l’aide d’une pierre à main rotative et d’une quern. L’eau est ensuite ajoutée à la pâte et elle est pressée par les mains pour extraire l’huile. Ce processus manuel extrait 70% de l’huile des graines.

Cosmétiques

L’huile d’argan contient des niveaux exceptionnellement élevés d’acides gras essentiels, y compris l’acide linoléique (oméga-6), qui protègent et réparent la peau. Ces acides gras stimulent également l’oxygénation intracellulaire, aidant à rétablir l’équilibre vital de l’eau et des graisses dans le film de lipides hydro de la peau. L’huile d’argan aide à prévenir l’apparition de rides et de vergetures, apaise les irritations de la peau et réduit les cicatrices. Les Marocains ont longtemps apprécié les qualités uniques de l’huile d’argan, et l’appliquent généreusement à leur peau, ongles et cheveux. Il est également couramment utilisé pour hydrater la peau tendre de leurs bébés. L’huile d’argan, qui est souvent appelée or liquide, est censé avoir des propriétés défiantes et réparatrices de l’âge et, en tant que telle, est de plus en plus recherchée dans l’industrie de la beauté de plusieurs millions de dollars.

9 reviews for Argan Oil – Virgin, Deodorized (Organic)

  1. Deborah

    Saffire Blue is an excellent company that offers the best products for a very good price. The service is second to none. The Argan Oil is the nicest I have ever tried. I have used this mainly for my skin and the results were visible after just two weeks. My skin feels quenched, soft as silk and has a dewy glow without feeling greasy as it absorbs into the skin so well. I have used it to treat my hair and have seen such an incredible difference in the way my hair looks and feels. I use it for my nails and in five weeks my nails have improved by 50% or more and have begun to grow out. I am type II diabetic so taking care of my feet is imperative. Argan oil has eliminated the calluses on my feet and have left them feel softer than they have in 30 years! I cannot say enough about the good that Argan Oil for many areas of my body. I use some with about 1/5 the amount of body lotion that I used to use and my entire body feels so silky like I have just come from a spa. I never, ever will be without it again. I crunched the numbers and for me, the purchase of Argan Oil now will save me over $800.00 over the next two years that I would have purchased in body lotions and face serums. Excellent product!

  2. Rosemary

    I have been using Argan oil for about two weeks. Makes my skin feel like silk. I would recommand this oil to anyone. Gave it to a friend for Christmas and she calls it her liquid gold. A little goes a long way,drop or two does my whole face. I will be ordering more when I run out.

  3. Norah

    This stuff is amazing! I use it as a face moisturizer and a soothing oil for after I shave my legs. It’s also great for mixing in body butter.

  4. Karolina

    I love using this oil on my face and hair. It feels luxurious and smells great! And you can’t beat the price. I will be buying this in the future.

  5. Cynthia

    Organic & deordorized makes this a perfect addition to my facial serums – thank you Saffire Blue!

  6. Joanne

    A little pricier, but worth not having to cover the scent. I use direct on face and hair as it’s thinner and lighter than the non-refined/absorbing quicker leaving skin silky, and always a fraction in my creams. It’s one of my pricier staples for skincare but the difference shows in the skin.

  7. Jessica

    Ive been using it as is – its just THAT good! Its super think and mixes well with essential oils. Thank you Saffire Blue, keep the good products coming!!!

  8. Karine

    Très bon produit je l’utilise comme hydratant de nuit. La peau est belle et douce le matin. Très bon antiride.

  9. Deborah

    This is the only type of Argan Oil worth purchasing if you want the best results for your skin and your hair. It would also add a premium quality to any soaps, due to it’s gentle, moisturizing and healing effects. I use it as my carrier oil for my skin. All of the problems I had with my skin disappeared within 8 weeks of using this Argan Oil, which is cold pressed, deodorized and best of all, organic. The calluses on my feet disappeared, the dry, itchy patches on my skin were gone and have remained soft and supple. I sell my mixture to some people who appreciate what this oil does for the skin and the hair. They are overjoyed with their results as well. I also put an ounce or two in a good, scent free lotion such as Lubriderm to get a lotion that is better than anything I have ever purchased in high end department stores. It is also better (and cheaper) than using expensive serums for the face. Combining this oil with a basic scent free lotion will give you a healing, moisturizing effect which will spread easily all over. By itself, soaks into the skin leaving a lovely, healthy looking dewy glow. This particular Argan Oil has helped clear up my eczema, psoriasis and the calluses on my feet which is necessary as I have type II diabetes. It has done the same for my friends. In the short term it may seem like a big purchase, however in the long run it has saved me more than $1,200.00 in an 18 month period. Only a tiny bit is needed to achieve the maximum effect. In my opinion, as a discerning consumer of the best moisturizers for 25 years and as a makeup artist this Argan Oil is THE way to using the very best, most healing moisturizer without having to break the bank.
