From the argan fruit comes the coveted argan oil, one of the newest buzzword in the Western cosmetic industry for a good reason. Argan oil, which is extracted from the kernels inside the argan fruit, has been proven effective in aiding the restoration of healthy skin, hair and nails.
Of course, the importance of healthy diet, exercise and lifestyle habits in this regard cannot be overemphasized since beauty should come from the inside, so to speak. But when Pura D’Or 100% Organic Moroccan Argan Oil is used on a regular and proper basis, it definitely improves the results!
Features of the Pura D’Or 100% Organic Moroccan Argan Oil
Here’s what we also found out from our personal experiences and from consumer reviews about the Pura D’Or argan oil.
Produced from 100% argan kernels
The best argan oil should be made exclusively from the kernels of the argan fruit. There should be no synthetic fragrances and artificial colorants, among other preservatives and additives, mixed in with it. This should also have no sulfates, parabens, and gluten that not only decrease its effectiveness but also increase the risk of allergic reactions (i.e., hypoallergenic).
Indeed, the argan trees should be cultivated and harvested using organic methods so that fertilizers and the like aren’t introduced into the resulting oil. According to its manufacturer, the Pura D’Or argan oil comes from such trees and judging by its quality, we are inclined to believe it.
Said authenticity can be concluded from observing the look, feel and smell of the Pura D’Or argan oil. When poured into a clear container, it has a light golden yellow hue to it with a sheen similar to gold – and it’s among the reasons why argan oil is known as liquid gold. When applied to the skin, it has a smooth texture with a light feel without the greasy residue of other types of plant oils, such as coconut oil.
Argan oil used for cosmetic purposes has a faint nutty smell, especially when placed near the nose. But this is natural since it’s extracted from the kernels of the argan nut, after all. This is true for the Pura D’Or argan oil, too, although it must also be said that the slight nutty smell fades away after a minute or two on the skin or hair.
The Pura D’Or argan oil also has a slightly cloudy appearance, especially at the bottom of the bottle. This is yet another indication that it’s 100% unadulterated – just shake the bottle before use and the oil is good to go.
Manufactured using cold press method
The Pura D’Or argan oil was produced using the cold press method. Since no heat was introduced during the oil extraction process, the chemicals beneficial for the skin, hair and nails are preserved in the resulting argan oil.
In contrast, argan oil used for food purposes is produced from argan kernels that have been roasted first before their oil was extracted. The resulting oil has a nuttier smell and taste but a certain amount of its nutrients may have been affected (i.e., removed).
In both cases, nonetheless, there should have been no other ingredients added to the oil. But argan oil can be added to other essential oils.
Wide range of beauty-related uses
Of course, the measure of the best argan oil is in the results! The Pura D’Or argan oil is an effective treatment for a wide range of issues in the skin, hair and nails although proper, regular and continuous use is a must for the best possible results.
Its efficacy lies in the high levels of vitamins, omega-3 essential fatty acids, and antioxidants in each drop. These nutrients seep through the layers of skin, hair and nails and, in the process, aid in restoring their overall health. Even a small drop of argan oil for your hair can work wonders as soon as you apply it – less frizz, fewer fly-aways, or fewer split-ends.
The skin also appears younger with a softer and suppler quality to it, even with a single application. When you make it part of your daily routine, your skin should have less fine lines, too.
Other uses of Pura D’Or argan oil includes moisturizing dry skin and repairing damaged scalp, relieving skin inflammation, and exfoliating dead skin cells, to name a few. Just add it to your body lotion, face cream, and bath water in small drops and you will enjoy its hydrating benefits.

The Pura D’Or 100% Organic Moroccan Argan Oil is relatively expensive but so are all of the best argan oils, mainly due to the labor-extensive and time-consuming oil extraction process. But when you consider the fact that it delivers effective results and each bottle lasts for several weeks, then the price is well worth it.
