It's becoming so popular but I don't think it's much better than any other oil.. olive, sunflower. It's also really expensive in the UK

sadly most of Moroccan oil brands in Europe & US are a scam simply because they lack Argan concentration, even though they are still too much expensive . My advice would be to look for someone based in Morocco who can buy you the real Argan Oil from indigenous poeple In Agadir Region

I don't think it's better. I have oily skin and I find it clogs the pores. I think jojoba is better although it is a wax, not oil

While most experts agree on the benefits of using argan oil to revitalize and hydrate dull, dry skin, it isn't the only natural product that will provide this relief. Other oils, such as olive, safflower, walnut, avocado and evening primrose oil, will provide similar benefits, helping to trap moisture into the skin and providing many of the same antioxidants and nutrients

Argan oil can be directly applied to the face, skin, hair and cuticles, or added to other products. Companies say argan oil's nutrient-rich composition—including vitamin E and an omega-6 fatty acid called linoleic acid that has anti-inflammatory properties—makes it healthy for the skin which can't be found in normal oil. So I don't think normal oil is better than argan oil.

Use a little Argan Oil on your hair and it will not break but shine beautifully.

Oil skin is really don't need by any person. They just fond of having some great ideas to oil free skin. You should clean your skin more in a day to get the best result.

I believe the argan trees are in danger of extinction and is protected. It is supposedly a good product that is also used for the treatment for skin diseases. I have not tried it so I really do not know whether it is better than anything else that I am using but I do not wish for my vanity to contribute to the extinction of a tree and I am doing just fine with the product that I am using.

Argan oil is used as a Skin Moisturiser to hydrate and soften skin. With its high vitamin E and fatty acid content, argan oil is the ideal product to give skin a natural boost.

Seen a lot of reviews on argon oil before and I personally use it on my hair as well. Smells great :D

I don't really like the idea of applying oil on my skin though since mine is really oily.. Any good products to recommend for oily skin? Currently using Sara Shantelle's product line (not giving me any problems though but would like to hear what works for you :D)

Like you I use argan oil on my hair. After each shampoo I apply my argan oil leave in treatment (Pro Naturals) to mainly the ends and partway up the length I tend to steer clear of my roots/scalp. Fantastic heat protectant because I use a blow dryer, on warm setting and a styling iron every 3 days and my hair does not show any signs of damage so I am keeping this product solely for my hair!

The beauty of argan oil is that is can be securely used in its genuine type and doesn’t need to come as a component in creams, hair conditioners and skin creams. Argan Oil can be used both cosmetically and culinary to improve everything from skin appearance to heart health.

The women in Morocco have been using argan oil for decades for their hair, skin and in their cooking - just as you say.

yes it's expensive, but it much better for the hair than skin. My hair is just shining beautifully.

Argan oil is light enough to use as a daily moisturizer and hydrating enough to use as an overnight treatment. As if this oil isn't already doing enough, it can also be used as an anti-aging serum. Because it's a concentrated anti-oxidant, it will protect your skin's elasticity.

Probably the best place to buy Argan oil is The Jewellery Channel (TJC). They sell Alicia Douvall's Argan oil, which is 100% cold-pressed organic Argan oil with no other additives and is produced by a women's co-operative in Morocco. Whether or not the hype and price is justified I don't know.
