Skinception: Argan Oil Rants and Raves
We have all heard about Skinception and their extensive use of Argan oil on most of their health and beauty line. The company uses it in their cold press, collagen treatment, stretch mark removal products, etc. The goal of this article is to provide a basic definition of what Argan oil is and then outline the benefits of Argan oil as well as highlight some Argan oil reviews from consumers and experts alike.
What is Argan Oil?
Argan oil is extracted naturally from the kernel of an Argan tree. These trees are endemic in Morocco and are extremely rare, so much so that UNESCO has deemed it proper to list it as endangered and spearhead its protection. Argan oil is extracted mostly using the traditional approach of Moroccan women picking the undigested pits from goat waste and then pressing it on old stone grinders. Newer methods of extraction are press extraction and solvent extraction.
Skinception Argan Oil Reviews: Antioxidant Properties
An anti oxidant is a substance that is rich in substances that minimize, control and repair oxidative damage (oxygen damage). This damage is caused by free radicals and can speed up the sign of aging as well as weaken the immune system thru the deterioration of the cells that make up a human body. If you were asked what the known and leading antioxidants are, you would probably say coffee, olive oil, vitamin C, etc.
However did you know that studies have shown that all these combined may not even reach the anti oxidant capabilities of Argan oil. Just to put things in perspective, Argan oil is hailed by some experts as having 200% more antioxidants than olive oil. That is probably why a lot of consumers hail Argan oil as extremely effective moisturizers, wrinkle removal formulas, burn salves, stretch mark remover, etc.
Skinception Argan Oil Reviews: Moisturizing Properties
The ideal moisturizer is natural, light, odorless or at least scent neutral (for males and females), easily absorbed by the skin and allows your skin to retain moisture longer. Argan oil has all these characteristics and more. The fact that it is natural means it does not contain parabens which are dangerous chemicals that damage the skin in the long term.
Skinception Argan Oil Reviews: Facial Moisturizer
As a facial moisturizer like Skinception Cold Press Cosmetic, Argan oil is light, pliable and easily absorbed by the face in order to minimize facial tearing, or damage due to incessant rubbing on the face. Not only that, it is also natural so it is safe to be applied on the lips and ingested in small quantities.
Skinception Argan Oil Reviews: For Your Body
Argan oil provides maximum coverage with as little as a few drops, which makes it ideal for full body coverage. It must also allow the tone of the skin to normalize for a more healthy looking skin. Experts agree that Skinception products like its stretch mark remover have revolutionized non surgical skin toning and color normalization. Consumers however, praise the company for its body moisturizers that may be a bit expensive but last a lot longer than more expensive brands and are more effective than cheaper ones.
