Here at nuddy, we only use the best- which is why we've chosen to add argan oil to our bars. Wondering what all the fuss is about? Let's break it down.

So, what is argan oil?

Argan oil is taken from the kernels of the argan tree, which predominantly grows in Morocco. It has been used for centuries in both cooking and hair and beauty remedies, which is why it is found in so many hair and skin care products today. 

Why is it so great for the hair?

Argan oil mostly contains fatty acids and powerful antioxidants, such as vitamin E, which help to nourish the lengths of your hair. Fatty acids like oleic and linoleic acid have been found to lubricate the hair shaft, which allows the hair to retain moisture. Not only that, but argan oil is great for the scalp too. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which means it's great for scalp conditions like psoriasis and dermatitis.
