Harnest the beauty of Morocco

Hailing from South Western Morocco, precious Argan oil is setting the beauty world aglow with its skin-loving benefits.

Available for harvest only during the months of June to August, Moroccan workers, usually women, collect and the pound the fruit of the Argan tree to retrieve the kernel of a nut that's about the size of a walnut. Argan oil is extracted from this nut and it takes up to two tree, 12 hours and 30kg of fruit to yield just one litre of oil.

Tribal Berber women of Morocco have, for centuries, harnessed the powerful benefits of argan oil as a natural source of vitamin E - it contains three times more vitamine E than olive oil and is an anti-oxidant bursting with nutritious fatty acids. In beauty speak, that means smooth silky skin and shiny hair.

Found in NIVEA Pure & Natural Visage and Body care products, argan oil is combined with jojoba oil, aloe vera, burdock fruit extract and chamomile in a range of products that cater to various skin types. A range that focuses on natural organic ingredients, jojoba oil protects and soothes skin; aloe vera - with pH virtually similar to that of skin - has outstanding healing and moisturising properties; burdock fruit extract contains Arctiin which stimulates the production of collagen to help skin fight aging and visibly reduce wrinkles, while chamomile is perfect fo sensitive skin, preventing inflammation and redness.

In tests conducted, dry, flaky skin was softer, smoother and more supple after just three days of use.


MUST TRY: NIVEA VISAGE Pure & Natural Moisturizing Day Cream for normal and combination skin.

Enriched with pure argan oil and aloe vera, it supplies skin with 24-hours of intensive moisture to maintain a healthy balance and keep it feeling smooth and fresh.
