With a total area of about two square meters and a weight of about five percent of the total body weight, the skin is our largest organ. Intermediary protein, fat, carbohydrate, vitamin, and water and salt metabolism takes place inside skin cells. Skin proactively absorbs nutrients and removes harmful waste.
When the skin lacks nourishment, it ages faster, loses resilience, starts to peel, and develops a rash, feeling dry and tight.
When this happens, the skin needs special care to saturate it with essential substances, help restore its natural metabolic functions, and restore its youth, freshness and radiance.
After many studies and special tests, Vitex researchers selected two oils, distinguished for their particularly valuable properties for the skin: argan and almond oil.
The new Vitex Luxurious Nourishment line with a high content of the most valuable oils is an unbeatable combination of rich nutrients and luxurious care.
Sweet almond oil
The useful properties of almond oil are manifested through its rich composition: tocopherol, phytosterol, triolein, amygdalin, vitamins E, A and F, B vitamins, and micronutrients: potassium, phosphorus, iron, zinc and manganese.
Almond oil is one of the most popular cosmetic oils. It gets absorbed quickly, efficiently nourishing, smoothing and softening the skin, helps regulate the lipid and water balance of the skin, protects the skin against aging and accelerates cell regeneration. It successfully smooths out small wrinkles, including those around the eyes, making mature skin more elastic and restoring its freshness and firmness.
Argan oil is about 80% unsaturated fatty acids, with a high concentration of sterols, triglycerides, natural antioxidants and triterpene alcohols, the natural antibiotics.
Argan oil has a very strong antioxidant effect. It penetrates deep into skin cells, activating skin self-healing processes. Thanks to its nutrient, tonic, regenerative and rejuvenating properties, it helps smooth out shallow wrinkles, making the skin noticeably more youthful, elastic and firm, and slowing down further aging.
Regular use of a product containing argan oil nourishes the skin with essential nutrients, and eliminates flaking and a feeling of tightness, making the skin luxuriously smooth, soft, tender and beautiful.
Argan oil is obtained by cold-pressing seeds (kernels) of the
argan tree. The oil is considered one of the world’s rarest and most expensive, as the argan tree only grows in Morocco, and the process of obtaining the oil is very labor intensive. “Liquid gold” is a name the oil has earned for these qualities.
