The history of Mogad'or Argan oil in a nutshell.

The Argan tree can only be found in southwest Morocco. Which makes Argan oil an extremely rare commodity. No wonder it’s sometimes called Liquid Gold.
Traditionally the seeds of the Argan tree are collected by local Berber women, who then press them by hand to extract the precious oil. It can sometimes take up to 20 hours to produce just one litre of the oil.
Nowadays making Argan oil is much easier. The kernels are picked straight from the tree and go through a cold press. This ensures none of the goodness of the oil is lost during the manufacturing process.

The Benefits of Moroccan Argan Oil

Mogad'or Argan Oil stops the signs of ageing, naturally.
Isn’t it comforting to know there’s a natural anti-ageing product that isn’t full of chemicals? Mogad'or Argan Oil contains squalene, phytosterols and phenolic compounds. Sound a bit bamboozling?

The oil is remarkably light, so it is easily absorbed without making your hair greasy. 
For miraculous results, massage a small amount into your hair. If you suffer from a dry scalp, make sure you massage the oil right into the roots. Wash  Arganolie out with shampoo. For a more intensive conditioning treatment, keep the oil in overnight and wash your hair in the morning. You’ll be astonished at how shiny, soft and full of life your hair looks. Don’t blame us when you start hearing wolf whistles everywhere you go.

Anti-oxidants for Skin Care

Like all of you, I am concerned about what my family eats. I want to make sure that we are all getting the very best that we can afford. 

According to most nutritionists, it is important to eat foods that are heavyweights in antioxidants. Common agreement today suggests that antioxidants one of the important contributors in helping fight the aging process. It all has to do with free radials that protect us from various ailments and diseases. Antioxidant-rich foods not only make us feel better on the inside, but also on the outside. These foods can provide a glowing, vibrant complexion. One thing I am sure of is that supplements alone are no substitute for good, fresh wholesome food.   


I am a firm believer that eating healthy helps promote younger looking skin.  Washing, exfoliating and moisturizing are necessary for a glowing complexion, but without a proper diet the benefits are substantially reduced.  I am always advocating to drink more orange juice and eat fewer pastries around my home.  Another great addition to your diet is a few tablespoons of olive oil or flaxseed to your diet, or to eat some nuts or seeds (if you aren’t allergic to nuts).  Flaxseed or linseed oil has extremely high levels of a-linolenic acid (a particular form of Omega-3 fatty acid and is used as a great nutritional supplement. 

The most common antioxidant nutrients are vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene. 

Vitamin C: Citrus fruits and juices and tomatoes are good sources of vitamin C. Eat whole fruit for extra fiber. Fresh juice is best, but can be expensive. Avoid juice in glass containers, and heat-pasteurized juice. Light and heat destroy some of the vitamin C.

Vitamin E: Great sources of Vitamin E are olive oil, Argan oil (non-cosmetic), nuts, seeds, wheat germ and fish oils. Apart from eating these in their natural state you can of course, find the in supplement form. Personally, I use olive oil on everything just because it tastes so good!  Forget the butter and margarine and just use olive oil. You’ll be surprised at the difference.

Beta-carotene: These fall into the typical veggies category. Orange and yellow vegetables, and leafy green vegetables, including broccoli, are all good sources. Instead of potato chips or popcorn for an evening snack while watching television, opt for prepackaged, washed and peeled baby carrots.

Take good care of your skin with a daily beauty treatment with pure and natural cosmetics and bathing products, but equally important is your beauty within. Make sure you treat your skin to a combination of a healthy, antioxidant rich diet for healthy, glowing and younger looking skin.   With attentive skin care, regular exercise (even modest), sufficient rest and sleep, a healthy diet and of course lots and lots of water you will enjoy an improved quality of life and a natural and glowing complexion.

Argan Oil as a Treatment for All Types of Psoriasis

Itchy, painful, red and silver scales make up psoriasis, an immune deficiency that causes a great deal of stress for all who suffer through this condition. It is often a lifelong skin disease that causes outbreaks of embarrassing scales on the skin. Patients often feel helpless because the medications prescribed to them by their doctors don’t always work. Pure argan oil is a natural treatment solution for the skin patches related to psoriasis. The product is effective, easy-to-use and it doesn’t pose a risk of side effects.

Causes of Psoriasis

Psoriasis is caused by an acceleration of skin cell turnover. Normally, skin cells form in the dermis, or lower level of the skin, and then shed at the upper layer (epidermis). However, if you have psoriasis, the process takes significantly less time—sometimes skin cell turnover occurs in less than one week. As a result, dead skin cells accumulate on the epidermis, eventually creating several layers. New skin cells don’t have anywhere to go, so they can start to itch and hurt overtime.

This skin condition is attributed to a problem with the immune system, and it is often hereditary. Psoriasis is usually marked by flare-ups, in which skin patches can occur on any part of the body all at the same time.

Types of Psoriasis

The five types of psoriasis include:

• Erythrodermic
• Guttate
• Inverse
• Plaque
• Pustular

Although not the most common type of psoriasis, erythrodermic is one of the most serious because increases in blood flows can strain the heart. This condition is marked by large patches that cover most or all of the body at once.

Guttate psoriasis develops small pinkish-red patches over large areas of the body. Some of the most common areas include the arms and legs.

Inverse psoriasis occurs within the folds of the skin, such as the armpits and underneath breasts. It is further irritated by sweat and friction.

Plaque psoriasis is the most common type of psoriasis. The patches are large, and often oval-shaped. Not only do they itch, but they are also quite painful. Plaque-type psoriasis can stay for years without treatment.

Pustular psoriasis is the rarest form of psoriasis. Not only is it marked by redness, but it also consists of tiny fluid-filled white bumps.

Relief with Argan Oil

There are two primary forms of psoriasis relief with pure argan oil. First, fatty acids and carotenoids work to balance out the skin’s natural moisture levels. Dry skin can often make psoriasis worse. This is why the daily use of argan oil is so important, even if you aren’t currently experiencing an outbreak. When psoriasis is left untreated, you put yourself at risk of infection.

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant naturally found in pure argan oil. This ingredient helps to reduce the inflammation caused by psoriasis. You will start to feel relief from pain and itchiness immediately after applying the product to your skin. Vitamin E also naturally decreases the redness of psoriasis, making the skin patches less noticeable.

Dangers of Chemical Treatments

Conventional treatments for psoriasis often include a combination of oral medications, topical creams and light therapy. Although such methods often promise treatment for psoriasis, they can actually exacerbate the problem. This is especially the case for topical medications because they contain chemicals that can dry out the skin patches even further. With the itchiness and pain associated with the condition, chemicals don’t often provide any real relief.

Not only can traditional medicines make you feel worse, but constantly rubbing chemicals on your skin is simply not healthy for the body. Anything you place on your body is ultimately absorbed into the skin and through the bloodstream in small traces. If you have the choice, why not choose a natural product that can’t cause your body harm? Pure argan oil does not come with the health repercussions that conventional creams do.

Daily Argan Oil Routine for Psoriasis

Pure Argan Oil for psoriasis treatment


In order to retain the maximum moisturizing and healing benefits of pure argan oil, the product should be massaged into the skin patches twice a day. Here are a few tips to a daily routine to help psoriasis:

• Cleanse the area with a mild natural soap, free of dyes and fragrances
• Pat dry—do not rub the skin aggressively
• Apply one to two drops of argan oil
• Massage into the affected area in circles until completely absorbed

Psoriasis can also occur on the scalp, which is often misconceived as major dandruff. It is difficult to treat psoriasis on the scalp because shampoos that are used for the condition are washed away with minutes. Pure argan oil can also help treat psoriasis on the scalp when these directions are followed:

• Place two to three drops of argan oil onto the scalp, or until you have enough to cover the area
• Gently massage into small circles
• Place a shower cap on your head, or wrap a towel around it
• Leave product in overnight for extra moisture
• Rinse out with a mild shampoo in the morning

The great thing about using pure argan oil for the scalp is that it doesn’t make the hair greasy like other products do. If you are pressed for time, you can still place a small amount of oil onto various spots on the scalp and leave in for the entire day. Repeat the process daily, or as often as needed.

Healthy Preventive Measures

Psoriasis is treatable with argan oil, but there are also certain lifestyle factors that can worsen your condition. Frequent stress can cause flare-ups, which only causes further aggravation on your part. Get plenty of rest, and look for ways to de-stress every day. Breathing exercise used in both yoga and meditation can help improve stress levels and improve your outlook on life.

You might also find that psoriasis is worse when you eat certain foods. High-fat dairy products, greasy foods and fatty meats are common culprits. For the best results, focus on a low-fat, balanced diet. You might also consider taking a fish oil supplement while using pure argan oil for psoriasis.

Argan Oil a miracle to your Skin

Mogad'or, The Essence of Pure

In the world of skin care, there always seems to be some new, wonder substance that's touted as having the power to solve all of your beauty problems. When experts stumble upon these natural ingredients that have skin-smoothing or anti-aging properties, you may be tempted to run out and try them immediately. But a little advance research on some of these skin care miracles might help you determine if they provide any real benefit. Argan oil - a natural product that's gained popularity in recent years - is a great example.
Often called "liquid gold," argan oil is derived from nuts found within the fruit of argan trees, which grow almost exclusively in a certain region of Morocco, also known as Essaouira or Mogador. Primarily produced on small, female-run cooperatives, argan oil is high in vitamine E, essential fatty acids and antioxidants, and experts believe it can help with many skin conditions, from dry skin and wrinkles to psoriasis, eczema and acne. These purported restorative and anti-aging benefits have led to a high demand for this difficult-to-produce oil.

Argan oil can be found in some lotions, though many people seek it out in its pure form. As such, the oil is easily absorbed and can be used on skin, hair and nails. Moroccans also put argan oil in their food - a tasty way to receive its health benefits.
While most experts agree on the benefits of using argan oil to revitalize and hydrate dull, dry skin, it isn't the only natural product that will provide this relief. Other oils, such as olive, safflower, walnut, avocado and evening primrose oil, will provide similar benefits, helping to trap moisture into the skin and providing many of the same antioxidants and nutrients. Then again, Moroccan women have sworn by argan oil for years, so - though it can be a bit pricier than some other oils - it may be a worthwhile splurge for troublesome skin.
