One of the most luxurious skin care products I own isn’t high-tech or full of hard-to-pronounce ingredients. It’s Kahina Giving Beauty’s Argan Oil, an excellently sourced and minimally processed oil with the power to transform skin.
One Solution for a Variety of Skin Problems
Kahina’s argan oil has something to offer just about every skin type. It calms acne-prone skin, promotes healing, minimizes and prevents fine lines, balances oily and dry skin, restores elasticity, and visibly improves skin texture.
One Single (Perfect) Ingredient
The lone ingredient: raw organic argan kernel oil.
|Extremely Safe||Reasonably Safe||Proceed with Caution||Insufficient Data|
Raw argan oil is high in natural vitamin E, Omega 6’s, Omega 9’s and antioxidants.
The recent “discovery” of argan oil by women in the US and Canada has flooded the market with inferior argan products. In general, the quality of plant-based oils varies based on the way the plant is grown and the way it is processed. But the peculiarity of argan adds an additional variable.
Some brands use argan nuts that were gathered without their exterior pulp intact, meaning that goats have already eaten and digested the nut. Goats love those tasty argan nuts; they’ll climb up the argan tree to munch on their snack of choice. The oil is then necessarily deodorized, which reduces the already-compromised nutritional content of the oil.
So don’t even think about scouring Amazon for the best price-per-ounce deal for argan oil; you may end up with an inferior product with the skin benefits of used cooking oil. But Kahina uses nuts with the pulp intact, then employs modern equipment to cold-extract the oil from the nut.
When it comes to maintaining beautifully healthy skin, quality argan oil is worth its weight in gold.
How to Use
I warm a drop or two in my palms, and apply at bedtime and in the morning under makeup.
Use on hair to restore shine and minimize frizz.
Use on cuticles for nails so pretty they won’t need polish.
Use Kahina Argan Oil anywhere on the body in need of moisturization and replenishment.
Where to Purchase
Kahina’s Pure Raw Argan Oil is $36 for a 30ml bottle, or $82 for a 100ml bottle.
