Known throughout the rest of the world as the Berber people, the indigenous people of North Africa self-identify as Amazigh, which translates to 'free people'. The name Berber was given to them by the Greeks and roughly translates to 'foreigners.' To honor the Amazigh, the stewards of the argan tree, we have changed the name of our pure argan oil from Al Amal Co-operative Argan Oil to Amazigh Argan Oil. It is still sourced exclusively from the Al Amal women's co-operative, and the name change only reflects our desire to honor the Amazigh people as a whole. Argan oil is a dream for all skin and all ages. Dry, oily, combo, blemish-prone, mature, sensitive - every skin type can benefit from its gentle nourishment. It cultivates skin that is smooth, dewy, luminous, strong and clear. It’s an exceptional moisturizer, perfectly simple and gentle. It minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, plumps, softens, smoothes, calms and nourishes.
While we believe that it is the wisdom held within the whole plant that provides complete health, and that the true power of a plant cannot be reduced to the components its comprised of, we acknowledge that Argan oil contains a multitude of compounds known to support healthy and beautiful skin. Among many other powerful co-factors and constituents contained within Argan oil, the following are found in great abundance.
Organic Argan (Argania spinosa) Kernel Oil
FACE: After cleansing, apply 3-5 drops to skin still damp from Facial Tonic HydroSoul.
HAIR: When hair is still wet after a shower, spread 1-2 drops over palms of hands and then distribute over ends of hair.
BODY: Apply where needed. Nourishes all skin.
For drier skin, or skin that is sensitive to heat or cold weather, Amazigh Argan Oil can be layered with another moisturizer: Light Moisture Replenishing Fluid, Rose Vetiver or Blue Chamomile Day Moisture or one of our luscious Whipped Shea Butters. Finish with saturating mists of your favorite HydroSoul.
