Organic Argan Oil for Natural Beauty [Review]


A couple of years ago, I simplified my beauty routine and focused on natural and organic products. One of my favorite beauty products are oils. I prefer oils that are 100% pure with no other ingredients. Most cosmetics seems to include a long list of ingredients, while pure oils contain one ingredient. You cannot get any simpler than that. I had an opportunity to try Argan Alchemy 100% pure and organic Argan Oil and it has become one of my favorite beauty treatments. Now, I use Argan Oil on a daily basis because it absorbs quickly and moisturizes well.

The Good
The Not So Good
100% organic and pure

Comes in a dark blue glass bottle

Absorbs quickly

Immediately softens hands


Argan Alchemy's 100% organic Argan Oil is pure, cold pressed and unrefined oil. Argan Alechmey sources the Argan Oil from southwest Morocco, where the Argan trees have grown for thousands for years. The Argan Oil is certified as USDA Organic and EcoCert. The oil comes in a dark blue glass bottle, which is necessary for preserving the qualities of the oil and extending the shelf life. Argan Oil storage is important because oils are sensitive to light and must be stored in dark amber bottles to prevent oxidation. Oils that are not stored in dark bottles will oxidize, lose potency and become ineffective.

One of my favorite parts about Argan Oil is that it can be used as part of just about any beauty care routine.

  • Naturally softens and moisturizes skin
  • Smooths hair naturally
  • Repairs dry and frizzy hair
  • Moisturizes and shines nails
  • Helps to prevent pregnancy stretch marks

Some of the ways that I like to use Argan Oil:
  1. Remove makeup on eyes and face
  2. Moisturize the face and body
  3. Moisturize nails and cuticles
  4. Quick conditioner for my fine hair
Argan Oil has become one of my favorite products. Winter left my hands red and dry. After the first application of Argan Oil, my hands felt silky and supple. Even coconut oil could not touch the dryness of my hands. I love that Argan Oil absorbs quickly and does not leave a greasy feeling. My skin stays moisturized and supple for several hours (until I hand wash dishes again).

I have even been using Argan Oil to moisturize my face and my legs. The best application so far has been to moisturize my dry hands after gardening or washing dishes by hand.

Argan Oil is rated as 0 (no hazard) by the EWG Skin Deep database. I feel completely safe using it for moisturizing and other beauty applications. 

Argan Oil does have a bit of a nutty smell to it. The smell reminds me of Neem Oil, but disappears within a few minutes. I have come to like the nutty smell.  

I would highly recommend Argan Alchemy's 100% organic Argan Oil. Argan Oil is the best natural beauty treatment for skin, hair and nails.

Disclosure: I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. All opinions are my own.
