It is composed of a variety of Phenolic Compounds and Fatty acids. Around 29-36% of the fatty acid of argan oil comes from Omega-6, making it a good source of essential nutrients.

Furthermore, when directly applied to the skin, it helps in repairing and maintaining healthy skin thus reducing visual signs of skin ageing.

Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory properties are owed to the various phenolic compounds present in the argan oil.
