Caring for oily and combination skin can be tricky. While the goal is to reduce shine and prevent blemishes and other oily skin symptoms it is equally important to keep skin hydrated and avoid stripping it of its natural oils with the use of harsh astringents. Moisture-deprived oily skin will produce even more oil to compensate which leads to clogged pores and the appearance of pimples.

The accompanying Blemish Healer contains potent botanicals to soothe and accelerate the healing of existing blemishes while preventing their reoccurrence.

Argan oil is produced from the fruit of the argan tree, which resembles an oversized green olive. Beneath the flesh is a conical nut inside which is found the kernel. Farmers typically remove the flesh by hand then crack the nut and extract the kernel from which the oil is produced.
Nicknamed the golden nut and its oil liquid gold, the argan fruit brings bountiful blessings both to the farmers who make a livelihood from it and to the consumers who use it for numerous beauty and healing regimens.
There are two types of argan oil. The culinary kind produced from roasted kernels is reddish brown, unrefined and strong scented, and the cosmetic variety made from unroasted kernels and mostly odorless and thus more pleasant to use on skin and hair. Whether refined or unrefined, argan oil continues to amaze with its multiple benefits.
