Afternoon Delight: Not all argan oils are created equal (so try this one!)
Not all argan oils are created equal—though they should be, considering that it’s really just 100% pure oil from kernels of Moroccan argan trees. However, like all trendy beauty ingredients, argan oil is one of the latest ingredients to reach mass popularity, appearing in everything from shampoos to body washes to lotions. But why not play bathroom chemist and mix up your own argan oil-infused concoctions? I like to keep a bottle of Leaves of Trees Unscented Argan Oil on my vanity, adding a drop or two into whatever other product I’m applying. This cold-pressed argan oil is produced from a certified organic women’s cooperative in Morocco and adds a nice level of silky hydration to skin and hair. Also, I’m quite drawn to the simple design of the bottle.
