Argan Oil has long been hailed as a hero skincare ingredient; its super nourishing properties leave the complexion radiant, smooth and super soft. However, not all argan oils are created as equals. The Ordinary's Argan Oil is in fact, anything but ordinary in its powerful skincare abilities.

The brand itself has gained cult status since beauty bloggers such as Fleur de Force have posted about their love for it. The reason why is pretty simple. The Ordinary are owned by beauty boffins Deciem, who pour their extensive knowledge into product formulations, yet don't set their price points high; meaning you can get access to the very best skincare without the price tag.

What is Argan Oil?

Argan oil is tantamount to liquid gold in the beauty community. Made from the nut of the fruit of the Argan Tree, the oil can only be found and cultivated in Morocco where the tree itself grows, making its golden elixir rare and precious.

In Morocco, it's used for cooking as well as beauty purposes, and can help to soothe and heal a multitude of skin conditions. Because of its incredibly nourishing properties, the oil rehydrates, revives and softens dehydrated and damaged areas.

What does Argan Oil do for the Skin?

Argan oil can be used on all skin types, and yes that means even combination and oily. If you have oily skin, the last thing you might think of doing is applying an oil to it. However, Argan oil actually works to balance out your skin's natural sebum production. By keeping the skin well hydrated, the skin doesn't need to overproduce, so it remains calm and even.

The Ordinary's Argan Oil goes even further than simply balancing out your skin and keeping it glowing. It's made from 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Argan Oil, which means that the integrity of all the nutrients in the oil are protected through the manufacturing and bottling process, so that when it reaches your skin, it's still packed with vitamins and minerals. This is further enhanced with its UV protective packaging, which doesn't allow the sunlight to penetrate the bottle and diminish its nutrients.

It contains a host of Omega Fatty Acids to support healthy cell function, as well as phenols, vitamins and carotenes to keep the skin protected against daily stresses and environmental aggressors.

Use the oil on both your hair and skin to moisturise and keep everything healthy and radiant.
