It is no coincidence that argan oil has become the most sought after anti-aging product on the market. This pure extract from the argan fruit has been the Berber's beauty secret in Morocco for thousands of years. No other oil performs as well at protecting the skin and reversing present signs of aging as argan which refuses to bear fruit anywhere other than the Sahara of Morocco.
Argan oil is rich in vitamins A & E. It has a high plant squalene content similar to olive oil and is high in healing sterols. The non-clogging, non-greasy oil absorbs into skin upon contact. Amongst all of the oils tested over several years at Shea Terra Organics, argan oil appears to last on the skin the longest, offering a full day of moisture protection.
Shea Terra Organics high quality, undiluted source of argan oil was hand selected by Tammie who traveled to Morocco to choose a women's group to partner with. Although Shea Terra Organics has been importing from a reliable source for over a decade, Tammie felt the need to benefit the women directly who are having the industry taken away from them by outside interests.
For thousands of years the production and sale of argan oil was in the control of the women. They make a delicious roasted version of the oil as well as an unroasted cosmetic form. They sit laboriously for hours hand cracking each nut, stone grinding it into paste, and then kneading the dough until the oil can be hand squeezed out. Finally being recognized as a valuable anti-aging oil, companies from Germany to Japan to Italy have flown in to take over control of the oil from the women. They have now set up machines to replace the women's work, thus causing loss of income to hundreds of women. Shea Terra Organics' founder, Tammie Umbel chose a particular cooperative of women in Morocco who are still producing a very high quality oil by hand. This process also insures that the oil is produced at a much lower temperature than machines and no chemicals are introduced into the process. The nutty aroma of the oil is still present indicating its authenticity, pureness and 100% unaltered form for maximum skin care benefits.
About Shea Terra Organics
Not only do Shea Terra Organics' skin care treatments assist in preservation, they are also the backbone of economic sustainability for many hardworking families across the continent. Since early 2000, Shea Terra Organics has worked closely with cooperatives and conservation groups to introduce Africa's time-tested ingredients to the world.
Shea Terra Organics was the vision of Tammie's quest to create markets for natural products from third world countries, which would help alleviate poverty while preserving diminishing habitats. Sufferers of skin ailments across the world sought out Tammie's therapeutic grade shea butter products because they were amazingly affordable at a time when shea butter was sold at hundreds of dollars per pound.
Realizing the immense impact that a single ingredient like shea butter could have on the world, Tammie Umbel began seeking out other rare and indigenous ingredients that could enhance or compliment the benefits of shea butter. Working closely with cooperatives, scientists, conservationists and non-profits, Tammie actively seeks out ingredients little known outside of remote parts of Africa. Not only are these time-tested ingredients highly therapeutic, they also bring income and awareness to preserve natural habitats, which would otherwise be destroyed. Shea Terra Organics was thus rebranded in a quest to reveal Africa's ancient skin care therapies -- in time to preserve them before they are lost forever.
Your skin changes daily. Pollutants that it comes across, sun exposure level, your vitamin and mineral intake, the quality and amount of your water, and so on all affect and change your skin. Likewise, the skin oils that you use should change from time to time. What works for you one week might not work for you the next week. Plus, your skin benefits from the different nutrients that comes with changing up your oils. If one week your face feels a little oily, use a lighter oil and vice versa.
