Argan Oil Benefits - Science Reveals What Ancients Have Known For Centuries
When it comes down to keeping skin youthful, Mother Nature wrote the book.
A Brief synopsis of the scientific research paper on the antioxidant effects of argan oil on living organisms.
Argan oil benefits are a case in point. Fashion news is replete with stories of celebrity beauties use of this somewhat rare and expensive natural oil. It is produced only in Morocco as the Argania Spinosa tree, grows only in the southwest part of that country.
It's been in use for thousands of year and has only in the last decade been re-introduced to the Western beauty market.
What does science have to say?
Research was reviewed that was published in March 2013 by faculty members Rachida Cadi*, Khadija Mounaji, Fadila Amraoui and Abdelaziz Soukri through the Department of Biology, Laboratory of Physiology and Molecular Genetics, Ain Chock Faculty of Sciences, Hassan II University, Casablanca, Morocco, entitled: Protective and antioxidant potential of the argan oil on induced oxidative stress in Tetrahymena pyriformis; (Vol. 7(27), pp 1961-1968, 17 July, 2013 DOI: 10.5897/JMPR12.139 ISSN 1996-0875 ©2013 Academic Journals)
In this paper the effects of Argan oil on a microorganism was studied. It is understood in scientific studies that this species of microorganism (T. pyriformis) is used as a model in biomedical research.
The results of the study concluded what any student of natural remedies, natural cosmetics and natural food would know to be true -
The report begins with this statement:
"On the one hand, chemical analyses uncovered its wealth of unsaturated fatty-acids"
Essential fatty acids are key elements in the nourishment of the skin; essential fatty acids are the building blocks of healthy cell membranes. They help produce the skin's natural oil barrier, very important in keeping skin hydrated, and youthful.
The research continues with a statement of argan oil's "... antioxidant elements such as tocopherols, polyphenols, sterols, carotenoids, xanthophylls and Squalene."
Antioxidants basically go after and neutralize free radicals. Free radical damage is what accelerates aging, which is seen in dry, damaged and sagging skin.
The last section of the paper states: "On the other hand, several biological studies revealed its anti tumoral and anti inflammatory effects."
So, in a nutshell, science has confirmed what is occurring when argan oil is used - softer, clearer skin, shiny, radiant hair without the damaging effects of artificial chemicals used in many cosmetics today. Argan oil an example of what Nature's millions of years of R&D can do and serves as a model that laboratories can maybe someday hope to achieve.
But why reinvent the wheel when Nature has already done it?
The news is - Argan Oil can be had for prices that even non-celebrities can afford. The key is ensuring that it is 100% pure, organic argan oil to avoid being shortchanged of the wonders of nature's unique mixture.
