I recently wanted to try some new health products that were natural so I first came across Coconut Oil & African black soap- For the coconut oil I began using it all over my body after a nice shower, it moisturizes and makes my skin so soft! The African Black Soap did wonders for my complexion as it is a great gentle exfoliator making my face clean and clear without harmful chemicals. I then heard about this company and argan oil from a friend. They had a sale for Mother’s Day so I took advantage and purchased the Moroccan Argan Oil Cleansing Bar and the Organic Argan Oil. I received them three days later and in perfect condition. Argan Oil is from a tree and has many uses for the body, hair, skin, and nails. I love using products that have been around for ages because these are typically inexpensive, all natural, and hey, if cultures have been using them for centuries, it is for a reason! On the hair it makes it so smooth and soft, it is truly unbelievable. I also use the Organic Argan Oil on my face at night. I have been talking to some older friends that have been using this stuff and they said their wrinkles around mouth and eyes have greatly diminished. I have also been noticing by using the body bar a great reduction in the appearance of scars and stretchmarks.
From the Website:

What is the composition of Argan Oil?
Argan Oil contains an impressive amount of nourishing and replenishing natural vitamins, anti-inflammatory agents, polyunsaturated fats, and high levels of vitamin E. Here is a quick list of Argan’s oil’s dominant characteristics:
• Vitamin F (omega 6): anti-aging and anti-dryness of skin
• Vitamin E : 2 times the amount in olive oil! A powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory for sensitive skin, UV protection, and aids in coetaneous micro-circulation. Also neutralises free radicals.
• Vitamin A : Increases skin elasticity, stimulates collagen synthesis, prevents wrinkles due to UV.
• Phenols : antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, powerful against fungus and bacteria, activates blood circulation and activates Vitamin C.
• Triterpens restructure cells, is anti-inflammatory and slows down cell aging.
100% natural moisturising argan oil soap, wrapped for freshness – proven to moisturise and keep skin soft.
To name but a few of its benefits:
-It acts as an antioxidant.
-It can help protect muscles from age related degeneration.
-It softens dry skin, rehydrates and revitalises tired and wrinkled skin to help give skin a youthful glow.
-It can aid relief for burns and scars.
-It strengthens nails and stops both fingernails and toenails from becoming dry.
-It can help reduce psoriasis and the look of stretch-marks.
Soap Dimensions: 1 x 3 x 4 inches
My first opinion on size and pricing. When I first received the products I thought the cleansing bar was a good price for the amount of soap, but I thought the Argan Oil was overpriced for such a small container, HOWEVER, a little does go a long way with this so it has changed my opinion.
I also thought it was interesting that they also sold Kohl eyeliner as well as jewelry and Ghasoul clay powder which I also heard is really great for the skin.
I would like to try the Clay powder products next!
