Carrier oils and Essential oil Accessories

 

Used on their own or as a base in many common skincare and hair care products, carrier oils are a go-to ingredient because of their natural composition.

Since they are filled with nutrients and vitamins derived from their source plants, these oils are genuine natural and active ingredients that can target specific skin conditions and improve hair health. Carrier Oils are also used to dilute essential oils, which cannot be used alone due to their extra strong properties.

Argan

Botanical NameArgania spinos

Absorption/Feel – quickly absorbed by the skin

Consistency – Light

Argan oil provides a major boost of hydration to the skin, thanks to its high quantities of vitamin E. When applied to skin, Argan Oil benefits include easing inflammation while moisturizing the skin. When applied externally, trocopherol from the vitamin E helps to boost cell production while promoting healthy skin and hair.


Since argan oil is so moisturizing, it serves as a great conditioner or mask for your hair. Argan oil’s molecules are smaller than other oils, so it’s easier to penetrate the hair cuticles, which will make hair softer and more manageable with less tangles and dry frizz.
