Argan Oil is a key ingredient to look out for when choosing psoriasis treatment. And why? Well…

Benefits of Argan Oil

The success of Argan Oil really comes down to its scientific properties. It has a significantly high level of fatty acids, antioxidants, phenols and carotenes, all of which are essential for healthy skin. Vitamin E is a key component in Argan Oil, perhaps the most vital vitamin for clear, healthy skin. Thanks to the high levels of fatty acids, Argan Oil is particularly effective in keeping the skin soft and moisturised, and keeping dry skin problems at bay. The natural properties of Argan Oil is the very reason this ingredient is so beneficial when applied to the skin.

Argan Oil is extracted from the kermals of the Argan fruit that grows from Argan trees. Argan trees grow almost exclusively in south-west Morocco and are surprisingly able to survive the northern advance of the Sahara Desert, making them extremely proficient at protecting themselves. In fact, local communities even refer to the Argan tree as the ‘Tree of Life’ due to its rejuvenating qualities; Moroccan women are typically considered to have the most beautifully clear, healthy complexions when compared to other regions, of which can be undoubtedly accredited to their long-kept secret ingredient protecting them from harsh environmental factors.
Impressive, eh?

Psoriasis and Argan Oil – a match made in heaven?

So, considering the Argan tree’s uniqueness and the oil’s natural properties, it’s really no surprise how well it can help a skin condition like psoriasis. Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition with symptoms including redness of the skin covered in white scale-like patches that can become very itchy, irritated and inflamed. Argan Oil’s combination of nutrients and vitamins means that these symptoms, particularly inflammatory symptoms, can be alleviated. Argan Oil retains the skin’s moisture and relieves the dry skin associated with psoriasis.

The oil’s antiseptic properties can help heal the damage psoriasis has caused the skin, meaning the redness and white patches become considerably reduced when it is used on the skin consistently and frequently.

Sufferers of psoriasis may have generally more sensitive skin, meaning they are more vulnerable to adverse side effects when using chemical-based treatment. Using natural products that uses natural ingredients as effective and minimal-risk as Argan Oil is undoubtedly the best option.
