Pure Moroccan Argan Oil By Argania 1640

How many of you use Argan Oil in your every day beauty routine? I have been obsessed   with this stuff lately it seems like. I have tried all kinds of products with Argan oil in them and have loved them. Once in a while off and on I will use Argan oil by its self. I have to admit though that with having oil/acne prone skin I have been very hesitant to use the straight oil on my skin. So when I got the opportunity to try out this product I figured why not I need to suck it up and try it on my skin to see if it would really help my skin.

Now if you are wondering who the heck is Argania 1640 I will tell you a little bit about the company.

From their website:
"Argania 1640 was born out of a chance encounter on the streets of Essaouira, on the Atlantic Coast of Morocco. One of our founders, on his first trip through the country, walked into an argan oil storefront in Essaouira’s busy medina, and immediately knew he had found a special and exciting product. Upon returning to the US, he sat down with two friends and began to discuss the possibility of bringing this incredible oil to the American marketplace. Months later, after endless phone calls and emails and late-night planning sessions, we brought our first shipment of argan oil to our headquarters in Chattanooga, TN." 

Are you asking why 1640? Well it takes 16 hours of labor and 40 kilograms of fruit to produce a single liter of Argan oil. Thus, Argania 1640.

They are proud to have this opportunity sell Argan Oil for three big reasons:

  1. It actually works exactly as advertised.
  2. It is quite rare and uniquely Moroccan.
  3. Finally, it gives us an opportunity to work with local artisans who have been doing this for decades.
Now on to the product its self that I tried. 
When buying from Argania 1640 you have your choice of 3 different sizes to choose from, and they are:
120ml-6 month supply 
60ml-3 month supply
15ml-1 month supply

 I have the 15ml one and I don't use it every day. I use it anywhere from 1 to 3 times a week depending on my skin and hair and more in the winter time. Aside from using it by itself at times, I also use it in my day time and night time moisturizers and hair conditioner,and I also use it when I do my nails. The oil is packaged in special brown bottles that keep the liquid from experiencing any degradation from light or sun exposure. They equip their bottles with droppers that make the process of correctly applying the oil easy and precise. The oil is shipped in post-consumer recycled cardboard boxes, each marked with their signature red stamped logo.
