The Many Health Benefits of Using Topical Argan Oil
There’s something to be said about goats willing to climb 30-foot-tall trees just to get their hands or hooves, rather, on the world’s most expensive edible oil. People throughout the world have taken advantage of the many benefits argan oil has to offer including the effectiveness it has as an all-natural moisturizer for your skin and hair.
Argan oil is known for its richness in Vitamin A and E but the nutrients don’t stop there, it is also packed with antioxidants, omega-6 fatty acids and linoleic acid. Tocopherol derived from the Vitamin E helps to boost cell production while promoting healthy skin and hair. This is why you’re seeing high-end anti-aging hair and skincare products adding this nutritious fruit to its ingredients.
“We live in a world where people will do just about anything to stay youthful, with hair thinning and hair loss being at the top of the list of reasons we look more aged, I knew there was more I could do to help.” Said Dr. Yazdan.
With over 40% of men alone experiencing noticeable hair thinning and hair loss by the age of 35 in the United States, Dr Yazdan felt an urgency to help gain their confidence back. Spending many years perfecting a shampoo + conditioner enriched with argan oil to fulfill the demand of a hair restoration product that actually WORKS.
Fun Fact: A Whopping 60% of hair loss sufferers said they would rather have more hair than money or friends while 30% said they would be willing to give up sex entirely to get their hair back!
But why the hefty price tag on argan oil? By hand, Moroccan natives extract the oil from the fruit derived from the argan tree making this an extremely intensive process and very time consuming. Due to the intensive process and the fact that argan trees can only be found in Morocco, makes it expensive to produce, yet a “holy grail” in the beauty and hair industry.
