OUR OILS

What is Argan Oil?

Argan oil has long been an ingredient used by Moroccan women for overall health and skin benefits. Argan oil is extracted from the nut of the Argan fruit found in Southwest of Morocco and is traditionally extracted by hand by women in Argan cooperatives. 

Marrouge products contain Argan oil that is extremely rich in natural Vitamin E, linoleic and oleic acid, polyphenols and essential omega fatty acids. These naturally found nutrients minimize fine lines, restore elasticity, improve skin tone from harmful environmental factors and aid in soothing any redness and inflammation. 

The Marrouge Moroccan Radiance collection contains the natural fat content found in Argan oil sourced organically from one of the best producers in Morocco, ensuring premium quality and purity.  The Argan oil we source contains the vital nutrients necessary for maintaining healthy, moisturized and super soft skin. Our high-powered Moroccan Radiance face oil also boosts collagen production and skin plumping benefits, helping with aging and dullness to reveal more radiant and brighter skin.

What is Prickly Pear Oil?

A Miracle in the Moroccan Desert

Pricky pear oil, also known as barbary fig seed oil, is native to Morocco just like argan oil. The process of extracting the fruit from the seeds is a lengthy operation, which can take several days. It is a manual operation and the season only lasts for a few months, which makes prickly pear rare and super potent. 

The prickly pear oil in our Marrouge Radiance Face Oil is sourced organically from one of the top producers in Morocco ensuring premium quality and purity. Prickly pear oil contains the highest amount of vitamin E than any other beauty oil on the market. This oil is also extremely rich in essential fatty acids including omega 6 and 9, antioxidants, polyphenols, amino acids and vitamin K.

Our prickly pear oil contains effective and potent antioxidants known as betalains which help to protect skin against ageing from various types of damaging radicals which would otherwise encourage wrinkle formation. Prickly pear oil is perfect for brightening, hyperpigmentation and sun damage.

Aside from its content of betalains, this seed oil contains amino acids which may help stimulate collagen production.  Containing vitamin K, prickly pear oil helps to brighten hyperpigmentation areas such as dark spots as well as being of benefit for under-eye dark circles. 

Sufferers of acne can benefit from using prickly pear oil as it is a non-pore clogging oil rich in linoleic acid to help achieve balance in skin. It’s high linoleic acid content helps prevent sebum from hardening and thus prevents blocked pores which would lead to acne and spots. The fatty acid profile of linoleic acid and oleic acid replenish lost lipids within skin which helps moisturise and restore skin’s elasticity. 

Our Radiance Face Oil contains the duo of the two best oils of Argan and Prickly Pear, offering the maximum benefits to your skin in one bottle for daily use.
