What’s so great about Amal Oils 100% Organic Argan Oil?
Amal Oils 100% Organic Argan Oil is pure, natural argan oil that is certified organic by ECOCERT - an independent organization that represents the highest international standards for nature-friendly products.
Amal Oils 100% Organic Argan Oil is extremely rich in essential fatty acids – Omega 3, 6 and 9. Fatty acids are necessary to maintain healthy levels of hydration and prevent signs of premature aging of the skin. The symptoms of insufficient essential fatty acids are dry hair, dry skin and dry nails. Research indicates that Omega 6 (linoleic acid), when applied to the skin has anti-inflammatory, acne reduction and moisture retention properties.
|Essential Fatty Acid||% of Fatty Acids|
|Oleic Acid - Omega 9||45.2|
|Linoleic Acid - Omega 6||35.9|
|Alpha Linoleic Acid - Omega 3||0.1|
Unlike any other oils, Amal Oils 100% Organic Argan Oil is rich in sterols, lipid-like compounds known for stimulating pore detoxification and restoring the skin’s natural lipid barrier. Sterols leave the skin feeling soft while reducing inflammation and delaying the aging process.

Amal Oils 100% Organic Argan Oil is one of the most potent natural sources of tocopherols, more commonly referred to as vitamin E, in the world. Tocopherols are important in protecting your cells from harsh environmental conditions, such as sun exposure and pollution that can damage your hair, skin and nails. The high levels of tocopherols in argan oil make the need for preservatives in Amal Oils 100% Organic Argan Oil unnecessary.

Amal Oil’s 100% Organic Argan Oil also contains polyphenols, antioxidants that are known for their ability to delay skin aging. Polyphenols neutralize free radicals, significantly reducing the skin’s oil or sebum production, and act as an anti-inflammatory, which explains why they are often found in anti-acne creams.
