Pour toute personne se battant avec l’acné depuis des années, cette huile d’argan fera des merveilles pour votre peau.

Il m’a suffi d’en mettre deux fois par jour sur les zones affectées, et en moins d’une semaine j’ai vu des progrès remarquables au niveau de l’apparence et de la texture de ma peau

Hello Aziz

It's been a several days since I have wanted to write to share with you what I experienced in relation to my mother and your argan oil.

On December 24, my mother was admitted to the Quebec Maison Michel Sarrazin, a company specializing in supporting people at the end of life. With my two sisters, we accompanied Mom: December 24 to January 5, the day she left us.

In this last stage of his life, mom could not eat or she drink anymore. So in a short time, she was dehydrated. Her lips became dry and even cracked. We were given a cream to put on her lips, but the situation did not improve. So I had the idea to take my argan oil to apply several times a day on mom's damaged lips. It was magical. In just 24 hours, we saw the results. We continued to apply the oil daily, and she did not have any further problems until the very end.

So there! Bravo for your oil ... ?

Je tiens à dire de bons mots à l'adresse d'un produit admirable – l'huile d'argan A1. J'utilise ce produit depuis 3 semaines seulement et les résultats sont déjà considérables. La peau du visage est devenue veloutée et douce. Les menues rides ont disparu. Au printemps, on veut toujours être belle. L'huile donne de beaux résultats. J'ai jeté toutes mes crèmes de beauté et j’ai commencé à utiliser seulement l'huile d'argan. Maintenant c'est mon produit préféré.

Dear Aziz. It is not only a pleasure doing business with you, I also feel that you are a very special soul and you have a good heart.

Using circular motions, I massage the argan oil into my skin. I use it on eczema patches a couple of times a day and it stops the itch. Once a week, I use it as an oil treatment for my hair and my hair is soft, shiny and thicker.

My homeopath tells people to make a paste of avocado, one egg yolk and 7-8 drops of argan oil  and leave it on hair for thirty minutes. She also advises patients to massage a couple of drops of oil on their scalps to prevent hair loss.

Merci beaucoup for the Argan oil and soap. 20 years ago, when I first heard about Argan Oil, no one knew of the of the wonderful product and I searched everywhere until I found your company. Now, every cosmetic company is including Argan Oil in their line-up! And everyone knows what a great product is? I look forward to continued success!
