Studies || Argan Oil + Hyperpigmention, Oily Skin and Cardiovascular Health

argan oil skin careArgan oil is the new "it" oil in the hair care community.  Ladies are talking about it online.  Companies are including it on the labels of their conditioners and shampoos.  Many of us have heard about it.

Well today, putting hair care aside, let us look at argan oil in skin care and overall body care.  Here are a few findings worth mentioning:
  • Argan oil may be effective against hyperpigmentation disorders (e.g., acne scarring).
  • Extract from saw palmetto and sesame seeds in an argan-oil base was shown to control oily skin.
  • Findings suggest that regular consumption of argan oil can lower "bad cholesterol" (i.e., LDL cholesterol).
