Description

Argan Oil is considered to the most effective anti-aging oil for use on the face, neck, hands, nails and hair. You can use it all over if you like! A truly exceptional oil, it was until recently a little known secret of the nomadic and pastoralist Berber tribes of Morocco. It is revered for its exceptionally high level of anti-oxidants, its ability to be spread thinly and for its rapid penetration of the skin. Only tiny amounts are needed and so as well as giving visible improvements and greater comfort to the skin starting from the moment you use it, the oil is actually very economical.

Protected by UNESCO, the Argan tree, which grows only in southern Morocco is an important species not only for its virtuous oil, but also for helping to prevent encroachment by the Sahara desert.

Only the ripe fruits are knocked off the tree. The fruits are gathered and sun-dried. The pulp is removed then the nut-like inner cases are cracked by Berber women between two stones (a hammer stone and stone anvil) in the time mannered tradition, revealing several kernels. The oil bearing kernel is then cold-pressed. It takes the combined harvest of 6-7 trees to create 1 liter of precious oil. At Natural Spa Supplies to assure that the oil is really fresh, it is pressed in front of our eyes. Argan oil quickly absorbs into the skin, and the natural aroma is very light indeed.

Ethics in using Argan Oil

Organic, certified through Ecocert
Produced from trees protected by the Moroccan law and by UNESCO. This tree only thrives in Morocco.
The Argan tree helps prevent encroachment from the Sahara desert and helps to consolidate fragile mountain soils.
Supports womens’ work cooperatives helping rural women out of poverty.
Supports a traditional production method (sun-drying, extraction of the kernel)
The oil is not pressed by hand in this cooperative – The yield of this precious oil is about 50% greater when pressed by machine, and the oil, rare as it is becomes somewhat more available for the export market. Machine press oil maintains its freshness for much longer and has a lighter aroma.
Transported by ship.
Ethically traded.
Completely natural and safe.

Warning

Nut allergy sufferers are advised to consult their doctor before using Argan Oil.
As with any new product, users should conduct a patch test before starting wide scale usage.

Packaging

This Virgin Argan Oil is provided in glass bottles. Although it means that the postage costs are higher, oils maintain their optimal quality in glass. Not enough research has been conducted on how oils react when stored in plastic, but there is no doubt that the oil degrades  in plastic and may become contaminated as the plastic degrades. Even an amber bottle allows some light penetration, so unless you intend to use up the oil quickly, then please store your bottle in a dark cupboard where there is a stable room temperature. Saying all of this, Argan Oil is know for its ability to be stored for a long time.

    I have been using Argan oil on my face now for over 3 years – which goes to show how much I love it! I really do think it has improved the softness and quality of my skin. It is also a lovely product to use – absorbs really easily and you don’t need to use much. I have very sensitive skin and can be prone to eczema so Argan oil suits my skin a treat. And in the morning when I have finished using it on my face I smooth my hands over my hair to quieten down any frizzy bits.

    The other thing I love about using Argan oil is buying from Natural Spa Supplies. Sally always provides such superb, fast customer service and is so lovely to deal with that it makes buying a real pleasure. I know that if I run out a new bottle won’t take long to arrive!

    I love this product, I came across it almost 1.5 years ago on this site and have been using it since, I actually ran out a few months back and didn’t have enough time to buy online as I was going abroad so bought some from Holland and Barret and I can say that the quality was really poor, this is the best I’ve used and does wonders for my skin. I have really sensitive skin so most moisturisers and I react badly too so this is perfect, I also used to have really bad oily T zone and with this it almost eliminates it, it keeps skin soft, supple and moisturised and best part is that doesn’t overload the skin.

    This oil absorbs into the skin so quickly and yet leaves a slight residue on fingers / hands that can be quickly passed through hair / over back of hands. I like it and it seems to be a really good “all round” product for skin moisture / protection.

    I have quite dry thick curly hair and I have found Argan oil to the best thing for keeping it nice and in check! It seems to sink in more over time so that hair continues to look better over several hours! Win!

    This is a multi-functional oil! Ideal for dry skin and sunburn, but also great for hair. I apply a few drops to dry hair to control frizz (I have naturally curly hair), and 4 drops to my deep conditioner once a week to add extra moisture. Results are soft and shiny hair!!! Have used on sunburn as well, and within 1 day it has settled, stopped hurting, and turned brown. One of the few oils that actually penetrates hair and skin, rather than just sitting on top of it.

    Well, where do I start? The product? The supplier?
    I came across Natural Spa Supplies quite by accident while looking through endless lists of so-called genuine Argan Oil suppliers, and after almost giving up on my search! And was I glad I actually decided to gamble and choose this particular one, the only one, I must add, that came across as truly honest and genuine!
    I found Sally, not only a delight to chat with, but also a very knowlegdeable, efficient and competent business woman. The service is reliable, rapid and faultless.
    As for the products, well I am now a thorough convert to and almost addict of the Argan Oil sold by Natural Spa Supplies!
    I am raving, to whoever wants to hear, about the results I have observed of daily use of this wonder oil on my own skin, particularly on my face!
    I have been blessed by Nature with a rather good skin and features which have managed to remain pretty youthful despite the advance of age! However, I had started to notice deepening furrows on my forehead, those created by the combined work of passing years and worries! And now, after months of regular daily applications (morning and evening) of Argan Oil I was very surprised to realise, on closer inspection, that those furrows were markedly less prominent and obvious, as if they had been smoothed over, ironed on! Furthermore, the two lines going from the base of the nose to the top lip, another indicator of years carving up one’s features, were also much less noticeable as if smoothed out!
    Were I to miss one application, the pores of my face seem to start a riot and clamour for the nourishing feel of this miracle oil, “feed us, feed us” they silently scream!!!
    If I am so lyrical about this oil, it is because it has proved, for me, a fairly vain woman afraid of the potentially lethal
    damage of middle age on her skin, to have become a powerful and rejuvenating ally!

    This is an amazing product, and a great quality one too. I am using it every night before bed on my face, and it has made a great difference. It makes my combination skin (with dry patches) very soft and the effect lasts long on the next morning too. It has also somewhat balanced it and I have a calmer skin too thanks to it. Plus, the beauty of relying on one product only instead that trying millions more or less successfully. Thank you so much Sally for this wonderful product!!

    I came across Argan Oil in Morocco a few years ago and have been pretty much reliant on it ever since. I have sensitive skin so have to be careful what I use on it and this just works like a charm. My mum is now also a convert and I only buy it for us from Natural Spa Supplies as the quality is just so high.

    I absolutely love this Argan oil. It’s deeply moisturising without being greasy and it’s lovely to rub the excess into my hands. My nails seem much less brittle now. I’ve tried quite a few products from Natural Spa Supplies and they are all wonderful.

    I also like the fact that the containers and packaging can be recycled or re-used, right down to the pieces of string which I use to tie up plants on my allotment and the corrugated cardboard makes great kindling.

    The handwritten notes included with every order is a lovely personal touch so when my parcel arrives, it feels more like a present than a purchase!

    Many thanks Sally, for all your efforts in sourcing such wonderful, ethical products which feel luxurious yet are so simple and kind to the skin.

    Loved this product from the very first use. I bought it essentially for my hair after going ‘no-poo’ Very easily absorbed, made my skin feel wonderful and gave an amazing shine to my hair.
    Will definitely buy it again.

    Since meeting Sally at a Mind Body Spirit Fair a couple of years ago I tried Argan oil & it’s now my only regular face care product. After washing in the morning I spread a couple of drops over my face & neck – I don’t need anything else at night, my problem skin is no longer a problem, my once frequent cold sores are very, very rare & now I feel far more confident in going out without makeup!

    Fantastic quality Argan Oil compared to another organic brand I have. This is thicker and a lovely scent. Not been using that long but already feel the difference. Won’t be purchasing my Argan oil from anywhere else in future.

    Incredible quality, i have mainly been using this on my hands and beard but plan to use also as a full body lotion after exfoliating with clay to maximise the benefits. Can’t wait to try the lip balm next.

    Thanks so much for supplying consistently high quality Argan Oil.
    I have to admit that ive tried many different sources for this – not only online but as i live in Brighton there are many shops that also sell it.
    Without doubt yours is the finest and truest i have ever found so now ive finished my search and always come here
    It is also great that you carry on the natural supplies ethic all the way to your compostable packaging and personal customer care
    While im here i should also mention other products i have had from you – rhassoul clay, horn comb and exfoliating glove were also genuine and great products.

    I have suffered from fungal nail infections in both big toe nails since an accident many years ago, despite the use of a number of treatments, some quite expensive, the problem remained. About six months ago I started to apply Argon Oil to the nails after showering once a day. On my last visit to the chiropodist a week ago she remarked on the big improvement in the condition which, despite her best efforts she had been unable to cure .

    Ah thank you for that information. In addition to the pure argan oil, I often use the argan lip balm on my nails too. I am glad that you are making good use of it!
