3 Cosmetic Products Where Argan Oil is Among the Primary Ingredients

Updated: Dec 2, 2021

Argan oil is an oil derived from the kernels of the Argan tree, also known as the Argania Spinosa. The plant oil consists mainly of fatty acids such as Oleic and Linoleic Acid – which are the main culprits behind achieving well-hydrated and supple skin. While Argan Oil is mostly produced in Morocco for consumption – the oil’s demand for cosmetic purposes has increasingly soared since the turn of the century. Here are three (3) popular cosmetic products where Argan Oil is the primary ingredient:

Nourishing Oil

Argan Oil can be used as a primary ingredient in Nourishing Oil. Oils for nourishment offer miraculous benefits for both skin and hair as their main purpose is to lock in skin's natural moisture - keeping the skin (or hair) soft, supple and glossy. These oils are usually applied to damp or dry skin in tiny amounts. Certain substances such as Nourishing Oil require dispensing systems which dispense in small, measured amounts such as in the case of syringe-like dispensers or the tiny spout found on airless pump bottles.

Oil-in-Water Moisturizer

While Argan oil is more often than not, the primary ingredient in some skincare products - it is, in the case of Oil-in-Water Moisturizers, secondary. Oil-in-Water Moisturizers are skincare formulations for which water, instead of Argan oil (or any other type of oil) is the primary ingredient. These often have a non-glossy appearance on skin and are generally used for daytime moisturizing. These usually have a light consistency due to the water content and require a relatively "small" actuator to dispense the substances in controlled dosages.


The use of natural makeup is on the rise. Natural ingredients such as Argan Oil and other types of natural ingredients are now showing up in makeup products as much as their synthetic counterparts. While not too many cosmetic companies have gone as far as some in experimenting with natural ingredients instead of synthetic ingredients - there are a few upcoming makeup brands who have dabbed their makeup products with natural ingredients such as Argan Oil and these are making headlines.
