Elevate Your Skincare Experience and with SkinStation

Oil is one of the most expensive natural beauty oils, produced exclusively in
Morocco. It has been in the spotlight as one of today’s MUST HAVE hair and
skin treatments in Hollywood

Riding the wave of Argan Oil
popularity are many products claiming to be pure. Unfortunately, many of
these are either fake or adulterated.

can you tell the pure from the fake? You should check the following:
The Ingredients List.
There should be only one ingredient: 100% Argan Oil. No fragrance. No
preservative. No parafinum (mineral oil) or any other kind of cheap oil.
The Packaging.
Definitely not plastic. Look for glass packaging. Better if clear glass, not
amber. This means there’s nothing being hidden.
The Scent. Argan
Oil has a mild characteristic nutty scent. The scent will disappear in a few
minutes after application, as Argan Oil is absorbed rapidly. Be suspicious of
odorless or scented Argan Oil.
The Color. Argan
Oil has light golden yellow color. If it is too light, it is most likely
adulterated with other oils. If it is too dark, it’s not cold pressed. The
Argan nuts may have been roasted for faster processing. This will result in
loss of vitamins, essential fatty acids and other nutrients.
The Price.
Argan Oil is not cheap. It requires 100 kilograms of raw nuts to produce a liter, and this is done the traditional way by Berber women. Don’t be fooled by low priced offers. Be wary also of
pricey brands in fancy packaging.
