Pura D’Or Argan Oil

What is it

Argan oil is pressed from the nut of the fruit of the Argan Tree, which is grown and only found in Morocco. Argan oil traditionally is used for dipping bread, on couscous and on salads. Various claims have been made about the  consumption of argan oil. Researchers have concluded that daily consumption of argan oil is ‘highly likely’ to be one factor helping the prevention of various cancers,  cardiovascular diseases and obesity. Argan oil is traditionally used as a treatment for skin diseases and as a cosmetic oil for skin and hair.

Community

The production of argan oil is beginning to have a small  environmental and social impacts. Argan oil production means that argan trees are now seen as a valuable resource. This has led to their preservation with a secondary impact on the environment. The labour-intensive nature of argan oil production, now frequently carried out by women’s co-operatives, has provided a steady income for many women and their families, improved the social status of some women and has encouraged producers of other agricultural products to examine the co-operative model

Conclusion

I love the idea of a product that is multipurpose. Just like a multipurpose house cleaner.

While some of  the claims may be a bit of a stretch I would be confident using it as a moisturizer. Its is all natural and that’s never a bad thing. While I may not use it by itself it would definitely we an asset to your current regime.

I, along with everyone else I imagine, hear all kinds of stuff about “miracle products”. Those that do everything, it seems, except your laundry and your dishes. Then a new one comes along, and the other one is mostly forgotten about. However, argan oil has been news for long enough that I was finally beginning to get curious about its supposed benefits. So when I was offered some to try, I accepted.

I have extremely dry, sensitive skin. There are very, very few products that I can use on my face that won’t end up causing some sort of reaction. The rest of my body, while not as sensitive, is still very dry. I tried the Pura D’or Argan Oil on my body first, and loved how easily it absorbed without feeling greasy. It has a very light, almost nonexistent, smell – nice, because I’m not too fond of products that smell like they were created in a cheap perfume factory.

As for my face – I hesitantly applied a small bit to one section of my face and waited for the redness and burning to commence. When, after 30 minutes, there were no signs of either, I applied it the rest of my face before I went to bed. When I woke up in the morning, my face felt soft and supple, and there were no signs of any dry skin patches. I have used this product on my face since then, and am so pleased! I love not having to use the overly processed facial creams in order to keep my skin from freaking out on me!

I have not tried most of the myriad other ways that argan oil can be used, but the fact that my skin is doing so well with it is all I really need. I heartily recommend this to anyone who has skin issues similar to mine – I think you will be just as pleased as I have been.

NOTE: I was offered a bottle of this product to test by the company in exchange for a review. However, I accepted with the caveat that I take great pride in writing honest reviews, regardless of where the product comes from.
