Argan oil is an ingredient we’re all pretty familiar with – you’ll find it in lots of hair care products as it’s great for keeping hair looking soft, supple and super shiny. It’s also great when used on the skin – something the Body Shop have tapped into with their latest launch, the Wild Argan Oil collection*.
The new collection is made up of a range of eight bath and product products, all of which have been infused with Argan Oil which has been sourced from the remote Atlas mountains in Northern Morocco. The oil in this range is all hand extracted by a cooperative of Berber woman using an age-old method - pressing the best Argan nut kernels, before filtering and allowing to settle for over 48 hours.
My favourite product from the new range has to be the Wild Argan Radiant Oil. This is a dry oil that can be used on both your body and hair, and because it’s a dry oil, it doesn’t leave you feeling greasy for ages after you apply it. I like to use this after my morning shower – I only use a tiny bit on damp hair to help smooth it before blow drying, but it really helps keep the frizz at bay! £14 125ml.
Another favourite has to be the Wild Argan Miracle Solid Oil. This little tin is full of a solid balm and can be used for hydrating dry patches, massaging into your cuticles, or even smoothing down flyaway hairs. It’s a great multi-use product that’s perfect for popping in your handbag or travelling with as you won’t need lots of different moisturisers and hand creams. At £8 for a 50g tin, I think this is a great little product and will be keeping mine with me at all times!
Also in the range are a body scrub, body butter, shower gel, lip balm, bubble bath and body lotion. All of the products are pretty reasonably priced and start at just £4, with the Radiant Oil being the most expensive at £14. The Argan Oil smell is quite distinctive – it’s a little bit spicy and definitely reminds me of something you might see in Morocco.
The range is available now online and in Body Shop stores – do you like the sound of this range?
