Moroccan Argan Oil for Body Skin
Argan oil’s squalene, vitamin E and sterols are important factors in moisture retention and restoration. Vitamin E preserves the integrity of essential fatty acids while both vitamin E and squalene build up in the epidermis. Squalene is a nutrient rich of oil with the unique capability to anchor itself to the cell membrane, protecting each cell against moisture loss. Plant sterols work simultaneously with human sterols to promote optimal moisture retention. They also play a crucial role in helping and maintaining optimal skin barrier function.
How Does Moroccan Argan oil soothe inflamed skin?
Any infection, allergic reaction or injury to the skin will trigger an inflammatory response. Consequently, all inflammatory responses will involve free radical activity. The presence of antioxidants in Argan oil will help reduce this free radical activity. In addition to their antioxidant effect, Vitamin E and sterols have healing and soothing properties. Vitamin E protects essential fatty acids from breaking down. Essential fatty acids are necessary for the production of prostaglandin, a lipid compound produced by enzymes within the cell that is a natural anti-inflammatory.
