The Best Beauty Oils: More Than Argan Oil

Cosmetics' Hot Elixir: Argan Oil From Morocco

While its uses and benefits are well-documented, there are other oils that have similar or complementary beauty benefits. Read on to learn about oils you might not have heard of and even some that, although common, have amazing benefits. Mango oil You might think of the mango as a great fragrance but not truly a beauty ingredient. Mango oil contains high levels of antioxidants and beneficial vitamins A, C and E. Just one cup of mango contains 80 percent of your vitamin C for the day and 25 percent of vitamin A. Studies have shown that vitamins A and C have a direct influence on hair growth, making these vitamins a vital contributor to healthy hair. Mango oil also is excellent to add and retain hair's moisture. Try a product like Klorane's Mango Oil (, $14). Tahitian Monoi oil Monoi oil takes coconut oil to the next level. <br>visit

Argan Oil Reviews: Organic Pure Argan Oil for Face and Hair

While argan oil risks similar overexposure, its sustainable sourcing and very visible Fairtrade connection to rural Berber women will help preserve its cachet, analysts say. Moroccos exports of argan oil have more than doubled in the past five years, to more than 700 tons, according to government data. Much of that has gone to skin- and hair-care makers such as LOreal ( OR:FP ) (its EverSleek Super Sleek Intense Serum with argan oil promises to tame rebellious and unruly hair) and Unilever ( UN ) (whose Dove Hair Nourishing Oil Care line of shampoos and conditioners now includes argan oil). LOreal, the worlds biggest cosmetics producer, this year will buy three times more argan oil than it did five years ago. And argan-based skin- and hair-care brands like Moroccanoil have been fixtures in New York stores for years. U.S. <br>visit

After the oil is extracted, a thick chocolate paste-like residue remains from the kernels. This residue is called amlou. Amlou has a flavor like peanut butter and is served as a dip with bread. Argan oil contains high benefits of vitamin E, carotenes, fatty and essential fatty acids, phenols, phenolic acid and squalene. <br>visit
