If you are interested in using natural, organic products free of parabens, sulfates, dyes, petrochemical or added fragrances, then you may want to consider adding Josie Maran's 100% Organic Argan Oil to your daily skincare regimen.
Argan Oil can be used as a daily moisturizer or treatment from anything to acne scars, repairing cuticles, reducing split ends to minimizing fine lines. It contains an abundant amount of Vitamin E and essential fatty acids that help with deterring the aging process while also hydrating the skin. It is also incredibly gentle, making it appropriate for all skin types.
It is a lightweight oil, the idea of putting an oil on the face may scare some of the more oily prone there is no need to fear. Surprisingly, it will not increase oil production but in all honesty it will probably not decrease oil production either.
The Argan oil is derived from the nuts of argan trees in Morocco. Not only will you be helping your skin by purchasing this unique product but you will also be helping the environment and the women of Morocco.
According to the Josie Maran Cosmetics website, "The extraction of the Argan Oil is a labor-intensive process that has been perfected by the women native to southwest Morocco. In 2002, the Moroccan government helped establish female cooperatives to manufacture Argan Oil. These programs provide women of rural Morocco with a steady income, a fair wage, good working conditions, as well as literacy and other education classes. Perhaps most importantly, the co-ops give women a keen sense of empowerment in this traditionally male-dominated society. These programs also help protect the Argan forests’ limited supply of trees. The co-ops are dedicated to responsible harvesting practices and reforestation projects, which - along with environmental protection policies - aid in the preservation of the Argan forests and women’s jobs."
Josie Maran's 100% Organic Argan Oil can be purchased online on the Josie Maran Cosmetics website, Sephora stores/website, or via the QVC website. A 1.7 oz recyclable glass bottle of the oil costs $48.
Putting a price on a product whose slogan is "Luxury with a conscious" and who wholeheartedly stands behind it, is hard to deny.
