Argan Oil

Definition: Argan Oil

Twice in one day I heard buzz about the amazing qualities that Argan Oil has on skin. The first was when I was reading about Josie Maran Cosmetics Argan Oil Moisturizer and the second was during my interview with Liz Earle (more on that tomorrow). Since these ladies hold Argan in such high esteem, I found myself interested in finding out more about the "gold of Morocco."

The Argan tree comes from southwest regions of Morocco, where it can withstand harsh environments with extreme heat, drought and poor soil. It grows a round fleshy fruit with an olive texture, and inside there's a nut where the oil comes from.

Argan oil is dark with a red tint. It's believed to have medical benefits such as lowering cholesterol, improving circulation and building up the immune system.

It is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin E which helps to nourish dry, dehydrated skin. It also has mild anti-inflammatory properties and protects the skin from free radical damage.

Another common use for Argan oil is to make a traditional Moroccan bread dip known as amlou, which also contains almonds and peanuts and honey. Couple it with one of Yum's recipes, and you've got one beautiful snack.
