Argan oil, the key ingredient in many of our products and the inspiration behind Leaves of Trees is an excellent moisturizer. Containing very high levels of vitamin E, phenols, carotenes (pro-vitamin A), squalene and fatty acids, argan oil helps calm acne, prevent and repair skin damage caused by free radicals and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Our Argan oil is produced by a women’s cooperative in Morocco using the traditional method, where the argan nuts are crushed and processed by hand. Cold-pressing allows the oil to retain as much of its nutrients as possible. It takes one woman 20 hours to prepare 1 litre of oil! This is why we #committokindness by sourcing our star ingredient directly, fairly and ethically providing sustaining employment for the Berber women and amazing skin-boosting benefits for everyone.
Argan oil is known as “liquid gold” as much for it’s warm, colour as it is for the high levels of antioxidants that absorb seamlessly into your skin, leaving it radiant and hydrated.
Try this versatile moisturizer on your face, hair, body or nails.
