Hailed as ‘liquid gold’ in a bottle Argan oil is exceptionally rich in unsaturated fatty acids, Omega 6 and Omega 9. It helps bring nutrients to the skin by protecting and nourishing the epidermis. This week, I tried out the pure Argan oil which worked a treat. A welcome change from my usual oil given the results were scent free, nicely absorbed and left no residue.
