Kerfoot Argan Oil Challenge

Argan Oil is all over the media, it really is the hot topic as the “new super oil for hair and skincare.”

Kerfoot Speciality Oils stock Argan Oil & even we are shocked by how popular this product is proving.  Our own Elizabeth Kerfoot, Executive Director, has been using it for the last few months & now swears by it – forget Creme de la Mer & Lancome apparently!

So the KSO girls and Jennifer Kerfoot have taken up the challenge too.  Instead of our normal day creams, night creams, serums, face masks etc. etc. we will be using just Kerfoot’s Organic Argan Cold Pressed Deodorised Oil for 7 days and we will let you know our thoughts…. wish us luck!

Background:  Our Argan Oil has a hint of hazelnut flavor and is slightly darker in colour than olive oil and has a reddish tinge.  The oil is extracted from the nut of the Argan tree which is unique to South West Morocco, the kernels are roasted and removed the nut is then ground to extract the oil.   

Properties/ Benefits:  Argan Oil is a natural anti-oxidant rich in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids which are ideal for helping to protect the skin, these include tissue healing, anti-inflammatory, sun-protective and disinfectant properties. Besides cooling and soothing inflammation, it is also reputed to help reduce wrinkles and soften skin by restoring the skin’s hydro-lipid layer.

Recommended Applications:  This oil is used for its cosmetic properties, it is perfect to use in skin and hair care products such as creams including anti aging cream, soaps, shampoos, aftershave lotion for men and massage oil.  A few drops of this oil used on the face each evening can replace a night cream.
