Natural Remedies for Beautiful Skin via @NaturesKnockout

Yes, we LOVE Argan Oil…but once you know what it does for the body, who wouldn’t?? It appears to be amazing inside and out and fights beautifully against inflammation, helps with SPF, wrinkles, stretch-marks, is anti-bacterial, and fights arthritis, acne, and other inflammatory conditions.

It’s been shown to be anti-aging to the skin, hair, nails and is loaded with healthy fats and vitamin E, which also aid in wound healing.

SO, all that said, today I was shopping and saw a night cream called “Argan Oil”…yes, my heart skipped a beat!

Of course the first thing I did was grab it off the shelf and search for the ingredients. They weren’t the easiest thing to find, and that’s usually the first sign of trouble…so once I found them, my fears were validated. Yuck and yikes!

 

This is what we call “greenwashing,” where we are led to think we’re buying something pure and natural, but when we look into it, we learn it’s about as un-natural (and potentially dangerous) as it can possibly be. Yeah, grrrrrr on that. Unfortunately greenwashing happens all the time, in our products and in our foods.

Anyway, I saw all kinds of ingredients that we have huge concerns against, including DMDM Hydantoin, all kinds of parabens, high score of PEG’s, EDTA, Soja sterols, propylene glycol, mineral oil and ugh petroleum based & synthetic ingredients galore. In fact, I’m still having a hard time finding the “argan oil”–can anyone help me here?

So I posted this picture on Instagram and other social sites. A lot of people were shocked–yay, that will make them think before buying in the future :) , but we had an overwhelming response and many requests for a post on our favorite items with argan oil. So, this one’s for each of you…

Btw we have a wonderful database with thousands of ingredients we have concern over…if you haven’t seen it yet, head over to our CHEMICAL SEARCH. Put your ingredient in the search and if it comes up, it will tell you what we think of it and why, if it doesn’t come up, you’re probably in luck because we don’t think it’s terrible.

Or if you want to be educated and entertained, head to our I-SPY where we have quick, quirky videos to help you learn some of the red flag ingredients like some of the ones I listed above.

OUR CURRENT FAVORITE ARGAN OILS

We say “current” because these are great products right now. We’ve seen some products we’ve liked pop up with toxic ingredients after we post them, so always, always check the ingredients yourself.

Our top 3 faves…

We love the following Argan Oils because they are pure, Ecocert certified, 100% Organic, vegan, cruelty free and free of parabens and other harmful chemicals. They are pure, cold pressed and imported directly from Morocco. They can all be used on the skin, the hair and the nails, used straight or added to lotions, moisturizers, serums, or conditioners and are absolutely amazing.

1. Watts Beauty Argan Gold

We chose the Watts as our #1 favorite because it is also raw, which means no heat processing has occurred, keeping the nutrients in-tact.

The following Oils are high on our list as well, but don’t appear to be raw. If we are wrong on this, please let us know asap, we would never want to lead anyone astray.

2. Josie Maran Argan Oil

3. Elma & Sana Golden Argan Oil

There ya go, let us know how you like argan oil once you give it a try…and let us know your favorites too, we love hearing from you–always!
