What does this mean?

Inci: Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil

A nourishing, protective oil for all skin types. It sinks in very fast giving an incredibly soft and elegant feel to the skin. Excellent in hair products.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A clear, yellow liquid obtained by expeller pressing of the seeds (stone) of the argan fruit. It has a typically strong odour that will need careful masking with essential oils as it is very pungent and can be overpowering.

Use 1% to 100%.

Oil soluble so cannot be used in water only products. It can be used in small amounts in water based gels that will hold it in suspension.

Heat stable so can be used in Stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions.

Works very well with Camellia Seed Oil for around the eye area to keep the skin supple and help to diminish the appearance of wrinkles.

Combine with Rosehip Seed Oil for skin with large pores. Even more effective when blended with helichrysum essential oil.

Adding Evening Primrose Oil will enhance the qualities of the oil.
