Argan oil is one of the most valuable and richest vegetable oils in the world. It is won from the olive-shaped seeds of the argan tree (bot. Argania spinosa) and consists of 80 percent of valuable, essential unsaturated fatty acids. The thorny argan tree can get nearly 450 years old and is one of the oldest tree species in the world. Its fruits are inedible for humans, but are gathered by Moroccan Berber women and traditionally processed in time-consuming manual work to extract its oil. It requires almost twenty hours of work to extract one liter of oil from the seeds of the fruits. Its immense vitamin E content makes it a highly effective care product that is successfully used specifically for problem skin such as eczema.
In Morocco, Argan oil has been used for centuries for skin care because its valuable active components and ingredients are unique. The cosmetics industry uses Argan oil as a main ingredient for moisturizing care products, which are used to treat dry, stressed and wrinkled skin effectively. This includes dry eczema, psoriasis and neurodermatitis. The external treatment of neurodermatitis consists mostly of a specific skin care by creams, lotions or ointments. By means of a balanced basic care of the affected skin areas, the skin is strengthened and reacts much less sensitive to allergens and irritations and feels more relaxed. Furthermore, Argan oil can also be used in the kitchen (slightly nutty flavor) to support the body from the inside.
Specially composed lotions from water and Argan oil can supply the skin with essential fats, so that dehydration caused by eczema is impaired, and also prevented. Moisturizing oil baths with a temperature of 37 degrees Celsius can also be extremely helpful. Scurf and crusts peel off, the skin is thoroughly moistened and at the same time allergy-causing substances are washed off.
To optimally maintain the affected skin areas, ointments with Argan oil and other effective ingredients can be used. Thus, the skin is richly moisturized, which in turn favors its healing. It is ideal to apply an Argan oil lotion two to three times a day. Warm and moist / wet compresses can provide relief in between and support the healing of the typical symptoms. Reduce the unbearable itching especially during the hot months of the year. Soaps, however, should be avoided, as they deprive the skin off its fats and thereby destroy its protective layer.
The fatty acids of Argan oil can support the suppression of pathogenic immune regulators, which often are the trigger for various chronic diseases. Especially the extremely high vitamin E content and valuable gamma-tocopherols have an antioxidative effect and phytosterols protect the immune system. Pure Argan oil thus prevents dry skin and is a useful addition to the treatment of various symptoms associated with eczema, such as redness and itching.
Argan oil is applied very thinly and massaged gently. It is completely absorbed by the skin and does not cause any greasy film. It can even be used without problems in babies and young children. At very high sensitivity, it is recommended to omit the eye areas. Also, Argan oil should not be 'deodorized' (treated with hot steam), since its precious ingredients are kept intact only in its virgin state.
