Argan oil is produced from the kernels of Argania spinosa L. It is composed of mono-unsaturated (80%) and saturated (20%) fatty acids. the oil contains polyphenols, tocopherols, sterols, squalene, and triterpene alcohols. Traditionally, argan oil has been utilized in cooking, in the treatment of skin infections, and in skin/hair care products [1]. Daily topical application of argan oil has also been shown to improve skin elasticity [2] and skin hydration by restoring the barrier function and maintaining the water-holding capacity [3]. Additionally, topical applications onto skin provide a softening and relaxing effect on the skin [1].
