Argan Oil – a beauty secret worth knowing
Arganic continues to sell its high quality products across the UK, offering both Cosmetic Argan Oil (£24-£80) and Culinary Argan Oil (£12-£80) made from the purest ingredients and highest quality. Argan oil is one of the rarest and most ancient ingredients in the world. It has been used for centuries by the indigenous Berber people of southwest Morocco and originates from the UNESCO-protected Argania Spinosa tree.
Externally, Arganic’s Cosmetic Argan Oil is a natural and effective anti-aging treatment used to combat dry skin, fine lines & wrinkles, stretch marks & scars, eczema & psoriasis, as well as to condition and strengthen hair and nails. Results can be seen by applying just two to three drops of the 100% pure and Vitamin E- packed oil to affected areas daily. For the face, massage in circular movements. For the hair, run through damp tips or apply all over for a weekly hair mask. It is also safe to use on babies, during pregnancy and for sensitive skin. This one shop wonder allows for a lovely, subtle fragrance that can seep deep into your skin without becoming greasy. All of Arganic’s oil is sourced from their partner farm, Sidi Yassine. This single-farm system means that all oil is consistent in quality and completely traceable. The trees are tested for health before the fruit is extracted and the farm itself supports the local Berber women by providing employment and fair wages. Arganic is also Soil Association Certified organic and entirely undiluted.
“We at Arganic are thrilled that the natural wellness benefits of Argan oil are being recognized among mainstream beauty and health circles,” states Arganic Founder, Dana Elemara. “A proud Londoner born to Iraqi parents who were passionate about health and heritage, I have long seen how nutritious food meant naturally shiny hair and a glowing complexion, and therefore an uncomplicated beauty regime. Once you realise that natural and simple works, there no way back. We’re excited for people to experience the effects of Arganic for themselves and also to add robust Argan oil product offerings to our current line.”
Organic products can be found at Selfridges, Whole Foods, Ocado, Marks & Spencer, As Nature Intended, Daylesford Organic, Harrods, and, of course, Arganic.co.uk

New from Igennus Healthcare Nutrition:
Triple Magnesium Complex
The new Triple Magnesium Complex from Igennus Healthcare Nutrition provides a trio of magnesium citrate, bisglycinate and taurate, in highly bioavailable, gastro-friendly forms for maximal uptake by the body.
A vital yet somewhat overlooked mineral, magnesium is involved in over 300 enzyme reactions in the body. It supports a wide range of functions from energy production and central nervous system function, to muscular and cardiovascular function, electrolyte balance and hydration, and brain health.
As many as 50% of people get less than the recommended 350 – 400mg needed per day, which can lead to deficiency. Magnesium deficiency has been linked to health problems such as muscle spasms and cramps, irritability, anxiety and depression, lethargy and fatigue, trouble sleeping, migraine, and impaired memory and cognitive function.
Magnesium can be sourced from food but for most people, not in the quantities needed, which is why a supplement is often necessary. But choosing the right one can be challenging: many factors affect how well magnesium is absorbed, and what may appear to be high dose, may be poorly absorbed by the body, meaning you’re likely to see little benefit.
Triple Magnesium Complex is formulated to optimise bioavailability and improve absorption.
By including three forms or magnesium, we can target unopposing pathways and together with split dosing significantly increase the amount of magnesium that is both absorbed, and retained.
Each daily serving provides 195 mg of elemental magnesium from 1893 mg magnesium citrate, taurate and bisglycinate. One bottle provides a 1-month supply of 90 capsules, at the recommended divided daily dose of 3-per-day.
Not tested on animals, non-GMO, suitable for vegetarians and vegans and certified halal and kosher, Igennus’ Triple Magnesium Complex costs £16.99 for 90 capsules and is available from igennus.com .
