Beauty Oils - Cutting Through the Hype

Beauty oils in cosmetics have skyrocketed and are currently on trend.  It's common to see major cosmetic brands promoting beauty oils on their labels and in tv commercials.  But is the oil trend in cosmetics just all hype?  Or are there really added benefits of including healthy, natural oils such as argan oil or macadamia oil in beauty products?

Studies show using oil on your skin or face is essential for healthy, beautiful glowing skin.  But if you look at the ingredients on the back of the labels, most of these mainstream products in actuality contain only 2% oil or less!  A closer look at the label's ingredients reveal a lot of other toxic chemicals that do nothing for skin or hair health.

You've probably bought into the beauty oil hype and purchased a product you think is an all natural beauty oil, only to find out there's almost no natural oil at all and mostly chemicals you cannot pronounce.  Remember, the ingredient with the highest amount is listed at the top of the ingredients list and goes down from there.  So when you see your beauty oil last, don't waste your time.  

When buying a natural beauty oil, the best way to go is directly to the source.  In the case of argan oil, thanks to companies like Argand’Or, women can now buy 100% pure, organic argan oil hand-pressed by the Berber women of Morocco who have been doing it for generations.

People love argan oil because:
  • It contains high levels of essential fatty acids and antioxidants
  • It hydrates and moisturizes skin, hair, and nails 
  • It's all natural and comes from mother earth
  • It diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
  • It gives your skin a beautiful, healthy glow

So instead of buying those expensive name brands that may only contain a very small amount of argan oil or (liquid gold), I recommended you buy argan oil as a stand-alone product which is uniquely rich in argan oil.  You can also add it to boost the skincare you're already using.  You can add it to shampoo, conditioner, facial moisturizer or body lotion for an added moisture boost.

Try Argand’Or for yourself.  You will instantly see, as well as feel the difference hand-pressed Argan oil makes wherever and however you use it.  Please visit to learn more or purchase Argand’Or products online.
