It’s August and we’re pleased to share our Anjou Product of the Month: Argan Oil. If you’ve never used Anjou Oil or, have heard of it but didn’t know what it is, we’ve written a quick primer to give you the skinny on this beneficial oil.
What Is It?
Argan oil might be the new oil on everyone’s lips but it has been used throughout history by all types of people. Derived from the argan nuts found on the argan trees of Morocco, the oil of the nuts is extracted for use in both cosmetic and culinary traditions. Argan oil can be used on your skin and hair to nourish, repair, and protect it from damage. When used with cooking, argan oil is used with salads, cous cous, and dipping breads as a type of dressing.
Why Is It So Good?
The oil becoming increasingly popular due to how beneficial it is for health and beauty. The oil is loaded with vitamins and minerals including Vitamin E, anti-oxidants, omega 6 fatty acids, and linoleic acid. It is because the oil contains so many naturally occurring and beneficial ingredients that argan oil is sought after by everyone – including celebrities.
How Can I Use It As Part of My Beauty Routine?
Argan oil can be used in a few ways as part of your beauty routine. Here are a few:
After washing your face with warm water, apply a few drops of argan oil to your face and neck. Gently massage in. Despite being an oil, your skin will absorb it quickly and will not be left feeling greasy.
Leave-in Hair Conditioner
Once you’ve finished showering, you can hydrate and moisturize add a few drops to the ends of your hair and your scalp and let it rest. Ideal for those that regularly use hair straighteners or blow dryers.
Not only does argan oil heal cracked lips but it also maintains health and keeps them conditioned. Simply rub 1-2 drops on your lips to keep them looking healthy. We think it works as an even better substitute for store bought chap sticks and lip balms.
You will need to thoroughly remove all nail polish from finger and toe nails first. Sprinkle a tiny amount of argan oil onto each nail and rub in. Let it rest for a few minutes before washing off. Regular application of argan oil will condition the nails and help with keeping cuticles moisturized.
You can either add a few drops of argan oil directly to your skin, or mix with a body lotion, or add to water when having a bath. No matter how you use it, it will help to hydrate your skin as well as minimize unsightly stretch marks.
Where Can I Get It?
Argan oil is nicknamed ‘liquid gold’ partly for how good it is and partly because it can be quite costly. Thankfully Anjou has produced a hand-cracked and cold-pressed 100% pure Argan Oil that sells at an affordable price to give you all your beauty needs. It currently has a 4.9 star rating on Amazon. Here is what our customers are saying:
“It makes your skin feel great and it does not take much at all for each use. It is so easy to use with a dropper and the amount you get for the price is a great value. This is another high quality product from Anjou.” – David L. Yarbrough
“Some oils, seem to take forever to soak in, which can be a turn off to using them, but this oil does absorb well, it leaves your skin soft and smooth without feeling greasy or sticky. It also adds a shine to your skin that makes it look alive again!” – HANAH BUG
You can find our acclaimed argan oil here. In addition to argan oil, Anjou has also produced an argan oil hair mask with coconut oil, honey, and Vitamins E and B5. You can find it here to naturally hydrate and nourish hair. Here is what one Top 500 Amazon reviewer had to say:
“When I went to the mirror I noticed that even without all of the product this morning, I didn't have frizzies. My curls looked very natural and soft. The shine was excellent, I have a multitude of browns and golds in my hair and they were really broadcast, even under fake light. And it felt soft. It did not look heavy, or greasy, it didn't feel either of those ways, either. I don't have a lot of good hair days without a lot of effort, but I was in and out of the bathroom in record time, with one of my best hair days in a long time. And it was 85 degrees, high humidity and raining all day long. And I had no frizzies.” - Sally T (Top 500 Reviewer)
