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, evanhealy has changed the name of their 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, smooths, calms, and nourishes.
Among many other powerful co-factors and constituents contained within argan oil, the following are found in great abundance:
- Vitamin E: Argan contains various forms of tocopherol (vitamin E) and is highest in gamma-tocopherol. This fat-soluble vitamin is a powerful antioxidant - smooths, softens, tones, and beautifies
- Sterols: Support the skin’s protective barrier and encourages healthy elasticity
- Squalene: A deeply softening sublime skin moisturizer and antioxidant
- Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs): Argan is especially high in Linoleic (Omega 6) and Oleic (Omega 9) fatty acids — both essential for proper skin hydration and ideal for supporting the natural barrier function of the skin
Directions for Use: For Face: After cleansing, apply 3-5 drops to skin still damp from Facial Tonic HydroSoul.
For Hair: When hair is still wet after a shower, spread 1-2 drops over palms of hands and then distribute over ends of hair.
for Body: Apply where needed. Nourishes all skin.
For drier skin, or skin that is sensitive to heat or cold weather, Al Amal Argan can be layered with another moisturizer: Light Moisture Replenishing Fluid, Rose Vetiver, or Blue Chamomile Day Moisture, or one of evanhealy’s luscious Whipped Shea Butters. Finish with saturating mists of your favorite Facial Tonic Hydrosol.
