beauty scoop | acure organics 100% certified organic argan oil

Ahhh, argan oil.

This “liquid gold” oil is most people’s gateway oil. Argan oil captured the market’s attention more than five years ago and is still selling strong — but this popularity spawns opportunities for greenwashing and knockoffs.

That’s where certification and a trustworthy brand makes all the difference.

{Acure Organics sent me a sample of its 100% Certified Organic Argan Oil for review. It retails for $14.99 for a 1-fluid ounce glass dropper bottle.}

Enter Acure Organics. Acure’s 100% Certified Organic Argan Oil has been holding strong on my favorites page since I created it (and I’ll be updating it soon), and for good reason.

Acure Organics’ 100% Certified Organic Argan Oil is USDA-certified organic, extremely accessible at most health food stores and won’t break the bank at $14.99.

It’s got that beautiful, sweet-yet-nutty smell that only pure, unadulterated argan oil delivers and a striking golden color that looks great on the vanity.

This is the oil that I constantly recommend to new-to-naturals friends and coworkers because it’s so approachable and it’s the real deal; that USDA Organic certification gets “light green” people’s attention as they make the switch to cleaner products.

The high amount of vitamin E and essential fatty acids in argan oil works wonders on restoring hydration from head to toe.

I love Acure Organics’ 100% Certified Organic Argan Oil as a hair/scalp treatment, a nail/cuticle soother, an oil cleanser, an overnight facial hydration treatment and an all-over body moisturizer.

Most pure argan oils are going to work just fine in all of these ways, but what makes me come back to Acure’s 100% Certified Organic Argan Oil is the pricepoint.

I don’t feel stingy bad about slathering it on head to toe because I know it’s something I can easily restock as a staple item.

(Besides, you really don’t need to be heavy-handed with argan oil because it’s so thick — start small and work your way up if you feel you need more!)

No matter how popular argan oil may get thanks to an over-saturated market of companies trying to cash in on its appeal, only a few companies will continue to stand out as trusted argan oil suppliers.

Those companies will continue to hold USDA organic certification, buy from small women’s cooperatives in Morocco and ensure sustainable harvesting of the Argan tree.

Acure Organics is definitely one of those companies.

    I’ve gone through a couple bottle of Aura Cacia’s argan oil, for similar reasons. I’ve been looking for a new one to try though and I enjoy other Acure products, so this might just be it! My current Aura Cacia bottle came smelling strongly of peppermint (not sure what’s in there!), so it’s been relegated to hair only status.

      Yes! I love Aura Cacia’s certified organic oils (I usually buy their jojoba oils). That is so strange that you got a smelly bottle (I mean that in a good way), but yeah, not sure I want to put that on my face. Did you reach out to them to let them know?!

        I did, but I never heard back. I didn’t buy it directly from the company, and it took me a while to actually crack it open (restocked WAY earlier than I needed to), so at that point I just let it go. It just smells like peppermint essential oil, so I’m not too worried.

      Mine smelled of peppermint too. I use it for hair but peppermint is drying for hair so I did NOT use it on my hair. Peppermint isn’t something you want on your hair if you don’t want to dry it out. What do they put in that stuff? The bottle says pure argan oil but I’ve never had argan oil smell like peppermint before.

        I think they must’ve just mixed up a batch of something as I’ve had other bottles that smelled like regular argan oil. Hadn’t heard that about peppermint before…interesting! I haven’t had any issues with it in my hair, but I’ll likely switch to another brand once I’m through this bottle all the same!

    Love Argan oil! It does get a bit confusing as to which brands you can trust that are bottleling up the true liquid gold! I will have to look into this!
