The journey of Argan oil from a goat to our skin!

Leave a Comment

Hiya Showstoppers!

Argan oil is one of the most popular ingredients in skincare and haircare today!
It is an ideal moisturiser as it is rich in fatty acids and Vitamin E and it is proven to give the skin a natural boost.

Argan oil is used in many beauty products today due to its effectiveness in hydrating and softening the skin and hair BUT do you know where it comes from?

You may be wondering why there is a picture of a goat above.

Let me explain......

Argan oil is actually extracted from nuts that grow on goat inhabited trees (Argan trees or Argania Spinosa) and the nuts are incredibly difficult to crack open.

This is where the goats come in!

Goats are excellent climbers and they get their food from the top of trees and mountains.
These hungry little mountain goats eat the nuts and then digest them which makes them much easier to open and extract the Argan oil from.

However, that means that humans have the not so glamorous task of poking through the goats poop to find the valuable nuts. Yuck, I know but hey, someone's got to do it and I am applauding those lovely humans that do. If it weren't for them, my skin would be in tatters!

Big thanks to the goats too, of course! :)

My top 2 products containing Argan Oil in my skincare regime are as follows (I am sure you have read my blog posts on just how fantastic both of them are already) You can check that post out here.

  1. Pixi Beauty- Glow Mist
  2. Liz Earle Night Concentrate Oil
I use the Glow Mist by Pixi every single day! I also like to use it as a makeup fixing spray to add some extra hydration to the skin and creating that fresh, dewy look.

The Liz Earle night concentrate is only for use in the evening to further moisturise and protect the skin.

Argan oil is really effective when used as a hair oil also but I only recommend that on the ends of the hair to avoid it looking greasy.

Another point I would like to make is that Argan oil can actually be used to help problem skins with acne and breakouts. when used on the skin it is non greasy and a thin consistency and it will actually help to balance the skin!
