Article Summary: Argan oil is made from the kernels of argan fruit trees that are native to Morocco. With a robust list of attributes and benefits for your skin, this oil is one to include in your daily skincare routine. Combine argan oil with other key ingredients such as grass-fed tallow, emu oil and essential oils, and you have a powerful blend of natural ingredients that hydrate, soothe, and enhance your body's natural state-of-being and skin texture. Organic, cold-pressed, unrefined argan oil can be found in Bare and Hint Good & Simple Face & Body Balms



Argan oil is made from the kernels of fruit that grow on the Argan tree native to Morocco. It is most frequently sold as pure oil, which can be directly applied to the skin or ingested to provide several health benefits.

Argan oil has traditionally been used both topically and orally to improve the health of skin, hair and nails. For centuries, women of Morocco have used this oil to mitigate sun damage. For today's article, we will be speaking to the benefits of applying this rare oil topically.

When sourcing the argan oil (aka. "liquid gold") for Good & Simple balms, we required the following attributes and were wow'd at the laundry list of benefits and properties this oil possessed.



  • USDA certified organic, non-gmo, cold-pressed, unrefined



    • Antioxidant rich, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, and promotes a youthful glow
    • Non-comedogenic (will not clog pores)
