Its high levels of vitamin E help to naturally reenergize the skin, moisturizing it and combating dryness and premature ageing.

COMPOSITION

Argan oil comprises up to 80% essential fatty acids, AGE: oleic acid (45%), linoleic acid or vitamin F (35%), alpha-linolenic acid (15%), gamma-linolenic acid (3%), arachidonic acid (1%); it also contains large amounts of tocopherols or vitamin E (around 700 mg/kg), almost three times more than olive oil, for example; carotenoids, of which 50% are beta-carotenes, precursors of vitamin A, phytosterols (D-7sterols) – which are rarely found in vegetable oils – and squalene. There is currently a lot of interest from doctors and researchers in the presence of these sterols in argan oil, especially scotenol (48%) and spinasterol (44%). Up until now, no other vegetable oil is known to have such a concentration of different sterols.
