This unique oil comes from the Arganier Spinosa tree which is native to Morocco, where it thrives in the harsh environment close to the Sahara Desert. Argan Oil is rich in essential fatty acids omega 6 (linoleic acid) and omega 9 (oleic acid) and sterols, which deeply nourish, replenish and enhance the skin’s ability to hold moisture. Argan Oil also contains antioxidant compounds such as vitamin E and ferulic acid, which protect the skin from environmental damage and premature aging.
Squalene (derived from Olive Oil)
Squalene is a naturally occurring component of the skin’s sebum, which forms part of the skin’s barrier. Squalene assists in maintaining, nourishing and hydrating the skin.
A nourishing oil high in antioxidants and phytosterols, which deeply replenish dry, dehydrated areas of the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Co-Enzyme Q10 (CoQ10 / Ubiquinone)
CoQ10 is an important component of the skin’s natural antioxidant defence system and is easily depleted by free radical and environmental damage. CoQ10 is lipid soluble and absorbs readily into the skin where it protects from UV induced damage and improves the appearance of wrinkles. CoQ10 also increases the production of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in the skin. GAGs are natural moisturising factors that hold 1000 times their weight in water, and have a plumping, hydrating effect on the skin. Replenishing the skin with added CoQ10 can have a protective effect on skin cells and structures and assist in preventing premature aging.
