Argan oil has found its way into many hearts, as well as bathroom sinks and cosmetic products – and with good reason. Because the oil moisturises and nourishes, while adding silky protection to dry skin, hair and damage caused by wind, weather and sun. Argan oil makes skin soft and supple through its revitalising and regenerating properties.
Explore this site to find our very own argan oil, Oils By Nature. The oil is 100 percent pure and freshly pressed from Morocco.
What is argan oil and where does it come from?
The exclusive argan oil has a wide range of properties, making it a popular ingredient in everything from makeup to skincare and hair products.
The oil is pressed from the argan kernels that grow on the argan tree. The argan tree is endangered, which is why it is now protected by UNESCO. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t buy argan oil with a clear conscience, as you don’t have to cut down trees to make argan oil. The argan tree grows wild and naturally in Morocco, where our argan oil comes from. The tree also grows elsewhere, including Mexico, but here the trees do not bear fruit – and without fruit there are no seeds.
In Morocco, however, a large number of measures have been taken to restore the good conditions for the argan tree and thereby rebuild the population. As the tree is endangered, locals are not allowed to cut down the trees – but they are allowed to pick and/or collect the argan oil fruit from the trees, and it is in the fruit that the kernels from which the oil is made are found.
There are two types of argan oil
Argan oil is generally divided into two types: cosmetic argan oil and edible argan oil, although it is clearly the cosmetic argan oil that we use in our country. The two oils are produced slightly differently, and while the edible one is roasted to get more flavour and fragrance from the kernels, the cosmetic one is not. Both oils are usually produced by cold pressing, as this retains as much of the oil’s vitamins and properties as possible.
Argan oil is rich in vitamin E, omega-3, omega-6 and -9, and antioxidants, which help to moisturise and nourish the skin, while speeding up the renewal of skin cells. It helps to give skin a younger appearance, restore balance and make skin stronger and more supple. At Oils By Nature we offer 100ml bottles where you can buy either one or the pack of 3 oils. If you are a big consumer, we recommend the pack of 3 oils, which also gives you free shipping.
Use argan oil in your skin care routine
If you want to benefit from the many properties of argan oil, you can use it in different steps of your skincare routine – and that counts everything from cleansing to face masks. Below are a few tips and tricks on how to use argan oil for your skin:
Argan oil as a facial cleanser
You can use argan oil as a nourishing and moisturizing facial cleanser. By massaging the argan oil into the face, you can remove makeup and impurities. The oil easily dissolves makeup residue and dirt – and it even easily removes mascara. Wipe off excess oil and makeup with a cotton pad or cloth. The oil helps to protect pores from waste products, so you avoid impure skin and clogged pores.
Argan oil as facial oil
Use argan oil on the skin and effectively prevent and care for dry skin. Using argan oil also stimulates the skin to produce new skin cells, giving you a beautiful glow and silky smooth skin. Use the oil under, over or mixed in your favourite cream. Vitamin E maintains skin suppleness , so the oil can be used as an anti-ageing by applying it directly to the skin or mixing into your day cream.
Argan oil as body oil
You can use argan oil directly on your body or choose to mix it into a body lotion for extra care. If you apply argan oil directly to your skin, do so as soon as you get out of the shower. This is because the skin absorbs the oil more easily when it’s slightly damp, so you get the most out of your oil. If you have dry skin, you can use a rich body lotion afterwards. The high vitamin E content helps the skin to retain its suppleness and elasticity.
Argan oil can be used for many different purposes, and it’s almost up to your imagination what you can use it for in your skincare routine.
How to use our Oils By Nature Argan oil for hair
Many shampoos, conditioners and hair treatments contain argan oil, and for good reason. Argan oil deeply nourishes hair, so you can finally have the healthy, thick and shiny hair you’ve always dreamed of. But why settle for products with a little bit of argan oil in them? With our Oils By Nature argan oil, you can get the delicious argan oil in its purest form. The properties of argan oil address the care of the hair, as well as the fact that argan oil does not grease like other oils, but still provides intense care.
Our argan oil consists exclusively of pure Argania Spinosa, which means that it is 100% pure. When you buy our pack of 3 argan oils you get free shipping.
The pure argan oil can be used in many different ways when it comes to caring for your hair. Here are 3 tips on how to use argan oil for your hair:
Argan oil hair:
You can use it as a hair treatment, massaging the pure oil all over your hair (including your scalp, as it needs care and attention too), and leaving it overnight – just remember to distribute shampoo throughout your hair before rinsing with water.
You can care for your ends and prevent split ends by spreading a little of the oil along the lengths of dry hair. It gathers your ends and gives a nice shine while conditioning your hair deeply. This is really good for those with curls or a tendency to frizz, as it prevents frizz and gathers your curls. Vitamin E helps to heal worn hair strands and contributes to blood circulation and oxygen supply to hair follicles, keeping hair healthy.
You can mix a bit of argan oil into your conditioner or hair treatment to turn it into a hair mask that deeply and effectively cares for your hair. Let the hair mask sit for as long as possible, then rinse it out. If you feel that your hair remains greasy, you can apply shampoo to dry hair and then wash it after your normal bathing routine.

The healing effect of argan oil
Argan oil’s many vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids can protect both hair and skin, but did you know it also has healing effects? The oil can be used on damaged skin, such as wounds, sunburned skin and eczema rashes. The oil goes in and amplifies cell renewal in your skin, therefore your skin produces new healthy skin faster in the damaged area. At the same time, the high fatty acid content has an anti-ageing effect, keeping skin firm and supple. This means that the oil can be used against superficial stretch marks, fine wrinkles on the face, as well as pigmentation spots. It is for this reason that argan oil is often included in skin care products and anti-age creams.
