Here’s one for my shopping list today: Argan Oil. It was my breast care nurse who first mentioned it to me as something that could help with the healing of scar tissue.
The benefits of Argan Oil:
The active substances called triterpenoids that occur in Argan Oil offer amazing skin protection benefits. These include tissue healing (scars), anti-inflammatory, sun-protective and disinfectant properties.
The oil contains 80% unsaturated fatty acids and is more resistant to oxidation than olive oil. Argan oil also contains 0.8% unsaponifiables (a large group of compounds also known as plant sterols or sterolins). Sterolins improve skin metabolism, reduce inflammation and promote excellent moisture retention.
It is helpful for lowering cholesterol levels, stimulating circulation and strengthening the body`s natural immunity.
