When people tell me they love their (overpriced, overmarketed) “Moroccan oil,” it takes every bit of my soul to keep from screaming, “Quit wasting your money on those fakes!”
In a sneaky effort to get people to abandon the popular, greenwashed products on the market, I appeal to their common sense when I recommend pure argan oil for their hair, skin and nails.
- “You can use this on your hair as a styling aid or overnight treatment.”
- “I like to pat this onto my face in the morning and throughout the day.”
- “This stuff keeps my cuticles from looking ragged.”
- “It’s the perfect post-shower body oil.”
If I can get them to see the light with these multipurpose uses, then I know I can get them over the perceived price hump of trying a delicious, 100% USDA-certified organic argan oil from a favorite company (and company founder!), Olie Biologique.
So, we’re clear on the fact that argan oil is pretty much everywhere. But what makes an argan oil special? Is it the chic packaging? The online boutique experience? The faintly nutty smell?
All of those things factor into the appeal, but for me, what sets Olie Biologique’s 100% USDA Certified Organic Argan Oil apart is its purity.
Olie is straight up with you in its product details on the site:
“100% Certification means we don’t add anything to this pure, organically produced product. You get 100% non-processed, chemical-free, organic argan oil of the highest quality.
Embodying the “less is more” concept, Olie Biologique’s argan oil makes a statement in so many ways. I love the way it looks on my vanity, but more importantly, I love the way it feels on my hair, skin and nails.
Olie’s argan oil doesn’t leave an oily residue on your skin, instead drying to a perfectly moisturized finish. When used as a hair styling aid, it gives a glossed, not an oil-slicked, look to your mane.
I also love knowing that Olie Bioloqique has put its product to the test and achieved the coveted USDA organic seal, which is still uncommon in natural beauty products today. That extra effort speaks to me when it comes to cutting through the marketing mess of argan oils.
It also gives me a little perk to speak of when convincing people to ditch the popular, diluted argan oil mixes on the market and truly get what they’re paying for — pure product, not packaging and dirty ingredients.
