the wonders of argan oil
Alexander Sprekenhus was established in Norway, Oslo in 2010.
It all began with argan oil, a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree found in Morocco harvested by local berber women.
For generations, the locals of the argan woodlands in Morocco have cold-pressed the nut to extract its precious oil, as a dietary supplement used to dip bread in at breakfast time or to drizzle on couscous or pasta and to nourish skin and hair in what can be harsh conditions.
The argan oil is an organic product and we are proud to offer the highest quality, certified organic and fair trade argan oil, delivered fresh in small batches directly from the source.
One of the main reasons that argan oil is so therapeutic is because it is rich in vitamin A and E, packed with antioxidants, fatty acids and linoleic acid all of which help skin to heal and reduce inflammation. Properties that make it particularly beneficial for your skin, body and hair care regime.
When applied externally, tocopherol from the vitamin E helps to boost cell production while promoting healthy skin and hair.
Argan oil has been shown to:
Minimize fine lines on your face
Improve skin tone
Neutralize free radicals that cause signs of aging
Protect the skin from harmful environmental agents
Light and non-greasy, argan oil absorbs easily, instantly giving skin a radiant glow.
Argan oil is most commonly used as a skin moisturiser to hydrate and soften skin, easily absorbed and is light and does not leave a greasy residue.
Argan oil is proven to make hair softer and silkier. It's the ideal ingredient in hair conditioner and shampoo, guarding against breakage and provides careful cleansing for the scalp and hair.
