What Are Carrier Oils?
Carriers oils are found in practically every beauty product on the market, from hair treatments to skin creams to anti aging serums.
Usually unscented, carrier oils are safe to use directly on your skin and, for this reason, are used to dilute essential oils or other ingredients. Naturally rich in antioxidants, nutrients and active compounds, carrier oils are typically produced from seeds and nuts and are great for your skin.

It is a precious oil prized for centuries in Mediterranean cultures and used by women (and men) in their beauty and health rituals.

Using cold press methods (heat can destroy the vitality of this luxurious oil), our Moroccan Argan Oil is 100% pure argan oil with absolutely no chemical or artificial ingredients.
