F.A.Q.: 

Is Argan oil safe for skin?

Argan seeds oil is a traditional food ingredient in Morocco and applied to the skin for centuries. There is no evidence of toxicity in scientific literature.
So, if you don't have allergic reactions to Argan oil or its components, it's a safe and natural ingredient for your skincare routine.

Can I use an Argan oil as a skin moisturizer?

Argan oil contains 99% fat and most of it won't penetrate through skin barriers. So, you can put it on your skin, but the benefit will be minimal. It'll just grease the skin with oil.
We recommend using balanced cosmetic formulations containing Argan oil. Those formulations contain other ingredients which help Argan oil to penetrate into the skin and potentiate positive actions.
