Thanks to Acure Organics, your Summer Yuzen box contained both Argan Oil and Marula Oil. If you’ve never used either of these oils before, let alone even heard of them, you may have wondered what exactly they’re good for, and how they’re the same or different from each other.
Here’s how they’re the same: All of Acure Organics’ products follow the family-owned company’s pledge to use only sustainable principles in sourcing the highest-quality, natural, fair trade ingredients that are always cruelty-free and contain no parabens, sulfates, or other unnatural, harmful ingredients. Both oils come from the kernels or nuts of a tree.
And here’s how they’re a little bit different: Argan Oil comes from a seed inside the fruit of the Argan tree in Morocco. This easily absorbed oil, often referred to as “liquid gold,” helps reduce fine facial lines and imperfections, works to restore elasticity and tone, and combats inflammation. Since it’s so lightweight, it’s a good all-around oil for the face, and many regular users also say it helps reduces acne.
Marula Oil comes from South Africa, from the nut of the Marula tree. It’s often referred to as a “miracle oil,” because it eases the irritation from dry, chapped skin and helps reduce redness and scars. It also works on stretch marks, dry hair, and cuticles. Because it’s just a little weightier than Argan Oil, it also makes a nice massage oil.
So, have you tried both? And which do you prefer? Many of Acure Organics’ other skincare products are formulated to work in harmony with their oils; check out the full product lineup at www.acureorganics.com
