CTFA Name: Argan Oil
INCI Name : Argania Spinosa (Organic Argan Oil)
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Morocco
Organic argan oil is a heavier weight, amber colored oil with a nutty scent. The argan we carry is non-deodorized, so you will have all the fatty acid and skin nutrients left in the oil. When used in another formula the nutty aroma will mellow out; used on its own the product will have the nutty smell but blends well with many essential oils.
Argan oil has a high content of both oleic and linolenic fatty acids, making argan oil and excellent base for acne and sensitive skin formulations. Argan oil is also non-comedogenic, so adding argan into any face lotion, moisturizer or wash will not leave the skin feeling heavy or greasy.
Argan oil also makes an excellent hair care ingredient. Whether you are making a shampoo, conditioner, shampoo bar (using our melt-and-pour soap bases, of course), hair mask or hair oil treatment, argan oil will help to deliver the smooth, healthy results your customers will be looking for.
Non-Deodorized argan oil means that this is a pure argan oil with all of the fatty acid profiles and vitamins still intact. This oil has been through minimal processing.
Organic Argan Oil is sold in 1-ounce, 4-ounce, 8-ounce, 16-ounce, half-gallon, 1- gallon, and 5-gallon sizes sizes. Please email us directly for 5-gallon+ orders.
