Opuntia bring to you pure, cold pressed oil extracted from the small nut like kernals of the argran tree. Naturally rich in fatty acids, vitimans and minerals, argan oil is good not just for the skin but also the hair and nails. The oil consists of eighty percent fatty acids that contain omega three, six and nine. These help to keep the skin supple, reducing the signs of aging by rehydrating the skin. People who are subject to lower quantities of these fatty acids whether natural or applied in a regular beauty regime are prone to dryer skin, nails and hair.
Argan oil, just like the barbary fig contains high levels of sterols that act as an anti-oxidant, preventing degeneration of the skin, repairsing and slowing the aging process while also acting as an anti-inflammatory. Vitamin E helps defend the the skin from the harsh effects of the sun as well as pollution and other damaging environmental elements. Argan oil brings welcome relief to skin and hair impaired by these conditions due to the high level of vitamin E. The antioxidants contained in the biological make up of argan oil help to counteract free radicals bringing improvment and protection especially to more sensitive skin that feels the effects of the environment more intensely.
Opuntia Argan oil contains only 100% pure oil with nothing else added. Working together with Moroccan farms that employ local people, Opuntia are able to bring you the finest oil available.
From picking to bottling, the means of obtaining and producing this top quality argan oil is a lenghthy process. Firstly the argan fruit is hand picked and then dried for several weeks before the skin of the fruit is removed, uncovering a small brown nut, approximately the size of a cherry or grape. These nuts are then traditionally cracked open between stones revealing a little kernel that is ready for the cold pressing. The oil is then subject to filtering in order to purify before bottling.
Argan oil is no secret to the Moroccan people who have been using it for hundreds of years to protect themselves against the strong sunshine and arid conditions they live in, especially in the summer where temperatures often pass 40C. Berber people for generations have used all natural argan oil, free from fertilisers, pestisides and other harsh chemicals introduced by the modern world to nourish their hair skin and nails. Opuntia brings you the power of this organic argan oil to more people all over the globe.
