What elements found in Argan oil remedy dermatological disorders such as Eczema and Psoriasis?
Organic Argan oil has a significant effect on the health and appearance of skin tissue afflicted by disorders such as eczema and psoriasis. The combination of Organic Potions™ Argan oil unique component successfully alleviates the inflammatory symptoms associated with these disorders by effectively treating the redness, inflammation, and moisture loss associated with dry skin.
More specifically, essential fatty acids, vitamin E, squalene, and sterols are all important factors in moisture restoration and retention. The presence of carotenoids, polyphenols, ferulic acid, squalene, and vitamin E are anti-oxidants that the neutralize free radical activity caused by inflammation. Essential fatty acids are necessary for the production of prostaglandin, a lipid compound manufactured by enzymes within the cell that is a natural anti-inflammatory. Additionally, because eczema is often caused by an allergic reaction, Argan’s polyphenols are a key component because it is both an anti-allergic and an anti-inflammatory agent.
What components of Argan oil help protect skin from damaging UV radiation?
Argan Oil's essential fatty acids and antioxidant power of carotenoids, polyphenols, squalene, ferulic acid, and vitamin E protect skin cells from the sun’s harmful rays. Essential fatty acids protect the cellular membrane and DNA from UV-induced damage. Carotenoids and squalene can deactivate the free radical known as singlet oxygen. This free radical, when exposed to the sun’s radiation, becomes excited and therefore extremely destructive. Ferulic acid is unique because exposure to UV light actually increases its antioxidant potency. Additionally, it is now well established that vitamin E reduces tissue damage caused by UV light and increases the rate of healing.
The same antioxidant properties that protect the skin from UV exposure also protect Argan oil itself from oxidizing in its glass bottle. These active properties allow Argan oil to maintain its integrity for up to 2 years.
Why Organic Argan oil is nature’s anti-aging skin food?
Due to Argan Oil's unique composition of ultra-hydrating essential fatty acids (omega’s), antioxidants and nourishing vitamin E and powerhouse antioxidants, Argan oil has gained an international reputation for being nature’s anti-aging skin care oil. The properties of Argan oil work individually and cooperatively to enhance the skin’s overall health, preserve its youth, and aid in the natural healing of dermatological disease.
What antioxidants are present in Organic Potions™ Argan oil?
Carotenoids, polyphenols, ferulic acid, squalene, and vitamin E are all powerful antioxidants present in Organic Argan Oil . The best way to protect a cell from free radical damage is for an effective antioxidant to be present both inside and outside of the cell (explanation below). Vitamin E is one of the most important antioxidants that can break the deadly chain reactions initiated by free radicals. Argan Oil's anti-aging effects are directly attributed to nature’s unique combination of these particular antioxidants.
How does organic Argan oil absorb so thoroughly?
Organic Argan oil is easily absorbed by the skin because of its unique composition. Squalene can penetrate deeper and more readily than most other oils because of its compatibility with the skin’s own natural oils. In fact human sebum, your skin’s own natural oils, is comprised of 25% squalene. Sterols found in Argan Oils™ penetrate rapidly because their structure is very similar to human sterols and are the main component of the outermost layer of the skin. Essential fatty acids are the building blocks of the cell membrane; therefore, the omega’s found in Argan Oil can be metabolized and directly assimilated into the skin.
What is the correct amount needed for treating dry skin?
We suggest starting with just a few drops. It really requires just a little bit to go a long way. If you feel you need more, you can reapply as needed.
What is inflammation and what properties of Argan oil sooth inflamed skin?
Any injury, infection, or allergic reaction to the skin will elicit an inflammatory response. Interestingly, all inflammatory responses will involve free radical activity. The presence of Argan Oil's carotenoids, polyphenols, ferulic acid, squalene, and vitamin E will neutraize free radical activity. The versatile properties of Argan Oils’ sterols, vitamin E, and polyphenols are multifaceted. These elements elicit an antioxidant as well as a soothing and healing effect, and polyphenols are also anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic agents. Vitamin E protects essential fatty acids from breaking down. Essential fatty acids help manage inflammatory disorders and are necessary for the production of prostaglandin, a lipid compound manufactured by enzymes within the cell that is a natural anti-inflammatory.
What elements present in Organic Argan Oil protect against moisture evaporation and keep the skin hydrated?
Healthy barrier function is vital to maintaining proper levels of hydration. Water loss from the skin through evaporation is increased when the skin’s barrier is disturbed by injury, environmental pollutants, UV radiation, and stress. Studies conducted in recent years have revealed that although water plays an important role in keeping skin moist and supple, the ability of the top layers of the skin to resist moisture loss depends on the presence of essential fatty acids. These essential fatty acids are water binding and enhance the barrier of the skin to reduce transdermal water loss. They also help regulate sebum production. Sebum is the skin’s own natural oil

Are your products/ ingredients organic ?
We are an ingredient focused company that relies on plants to deliver results. Therefor it is vital that our ingredients are grown using organic farming practices to ensure the highest quality end product. Each ingredient we use that starts as a seed is certified organic. We take great care in sourcing ingredients of the highest quality, which means some of our ingredients also fall under terms such as wild-harvested and biodynamic. There are certain cosmetic ingredients that cannot be certified organic, such as cosmetic clays vitamin C and vitamin E. Our Vitamin E is derived from plant oil and non-GMO. We also never use more than 1% Vitamin E oil concentration in our formulas.
How long unitil I see results?
Many of our customers experience results within a week. However, your skin cells renew themselves every 28-40 days – the amount of time it generally takes for your skin to demonstrate visible results when starting a new product.
How should I store my products?
Will oils make me break out?
Do your products work for acne?
Absolutely. Our routine is designed to support your skin’s essential needs and functions. We have products specifically formulated for skin that is prone to blemishes and congestion. Acne is very complex and requires both an inside and outside effort. We recommend taking a holistic approach to successfully manage acne and support long term skin health. See our skin concern page for product recommendations.
Are your products anti-aging?
The short answer is yes. However, we don’t use this term. We believe that aging is a privilege. All our products are designed with the mindset of prevention and correction, what we like to call youth preservation – whether your “youth” is in your 20’s, 40’s or 60’s
Which skin types are your products best suited for?
Our collection was designed to nourish and support your skin through all its stages in life. Whether your skin falls under sensitive, blemish-prone, combination, dry, or you’re lucky enough to have great skin, we have something for you.

We embrace transparency when it comes to this topic. Each product is priced to reflect the exceptional quality of ingredients used, the research, expertise, small batch in-house manufacturing, fair-trade practices we support through our conscious ingredient procurement, as well as fair wages for our small team. We practice the old school philosophy of “quality over quantity” in an age where fast fashion not only applies to clothing but also skincare.
Can you explain why "hight-quality" ingredients matter in natural skin care?
Do your products work well with synthetic treatments like Retinol and Vitamin C serums?
Yes. All of our formulas are gentle by nature (pun intended) and compliment more intensive treatments like retinol, Vitamin C and exfoliating acids. Our oil-based facial serums are exceptionally compatible with intensive treatments and should be used as one of the last steps in your routine. However, we do not recommend using our exfoliant or masks on days where you are using other intensive treatments as over-stimulation can cause sensitivity or negative reactions in the skin.
Why does my products look or smell different from last time ?
It’s completely normal for there to be slight variances in scent, color and texture from batch to batch. No two harvests are the same, which means that the raw materials used to produce our beautiful botanical oils, extracts, essential oils, and hydrosols will have variances. We encourage you to embrace and welcome the beautiful nuances of mother nature.
Do you test your products on animals?
What is a free radical?
Free radicals are unstable molecules formed when cells burn oxygen. These molecules have an unpaired electron in their outer shell. These unpaired electrons cause the molecule to be volatile. Their reactions with cells cause cellular membrane, cellular protein, and DNA damage. This leads to premature aging, wrinkling, and disease. Free radical damage is associated with oxidation damage because it is the oxygen molecule that is unstable.
What is an antioxidant? How does an antioxidant fight a free radical?
Antioxidants are molecules that can take many forms including proteins, enzymes, vitamins, and metabolites. These molecules are able to combine with free radicals and stabilize them, thus rendering them harmless. The earlier this can happen, the better for the cell, since many oxidative reactions start devastating chain reactions that result in considerable damage to each part of the cell’s anatomy.
Do you use artificial fragrance?
No. We do not believe there is a place or need for artificial fragrance in skin care. Not only do artificial fragrances have no direct benefit to the skin, they can cause harm and hide toxic ingredients. Many of our natural ingredients have an inherent scent to them, as nature intended.
Do you have fragrance free or essential oil free products?
Are your facial products gentle enough to use around eyes?
Yes, all our facial products are gentle enough to use around the eyes, but please avoid direct eye contact – If you do happen to get product in your eyes, flush eyes with water immediately.
