 Those of you who are familiar with argan oil, probably know it’s more often associated with shiny, healthy hair. It can be found in conditioners, moisturizers, and hair masques. That bodes well for  BEARD SENSE because argan kernel oil is the number two ingredient. There’s a reason. It’s great for hair. You know what else it’s great for? Skin. Especially the face. So, let’s dive in and take a deeper look at what Argan oil is and why you should be using it on your beard and face.

Why Argan Kernel Oil

Argan oil is extracted from the kernels of the argan tree, which is native to Morocco. Its nickname is liquid gold because it’s rich in key nutrients. It’s especially rich in fatty acids and vitamin E, two nutrients that are particularly important for healthy skin and hair. When used on hair, argan oil smoothes frizz, moisturizes hair so it’s less brittle, and keeps hair strong to reduce split ends. As far as beards are concerned, this means argan oil is perfect for shiny, healthy beard hair. Argan oil also nourishes skin without irritating or clogging pores, making it the perfect ingredient for beard oil.

Nourishing, Hydrating, Moisturizing

“Nourishing, hydrating, moisturizing” may sound like the tagline to an especially expensive and exotic serum. Being from Morocco, we might call it exotic, but it isn’t expensive, and it is everything those expensive serums boast. It’s kind of like a superfood for skin and hair. Here are some quick facts:

  • Rich in antioxidants, which means it protects us from damaging environmental influences.
  • Contains plenty of vitamin E, which is a powerful anti-aging nutrient. It actually slows the aging process.
  • Has linoleic acids, part of the Omega 6 fatty acids and a powerhouse ingredient with a laundry list of benefits.
  • It is non-comedogenic, which means it will hydrate and moisturize without clogging pores, making it excellent for balancing your skin. It will calm acne while balancing oily skin, making it useful for all skin types.
  • The anti-inflammatory effects help reduce redness and soothe sensitive skin. The oil is a fast-absorbing dry oil, which means it moisturizes dry skin without leaving a film or residue. And it controls the skin’s natural oil production, which helps to balance oily skin.

Competition & Considerations

There are a lot of products out there that make all kinds of claims. Some may be true, and others are just expensive rubbing alcohol. In this case, Argan oil’s benefits are well documented. It’s a heavyweight contender against trends like coconut oil, which is beneficial as an additive, but in large amounts will clog pores and weigh skin and hair down.

It’s also been growing in demand, but because of the fast-growing nature of the tree and fast-acting economic and sustainability actors, more trees are being planted all the time in an effort to maintain the sustainability of the product. The successful measures being taken to maintain the Argan forests in Morocco keep this desert gold in high-yield supply and keep prices down.
