We had a fantastic opportunity to get to interview Shirley from Silk Oil of Morocco and hope you all enjoy learning a bit more about her brand.
TVSN: How is Argan Oil used?
Shirley: Argan Oil is such an amazing product for Hair & Skin & Body . According to “The Journal of Pharmacy & Pharamcology” based in France, using the “Traditional” process in the production of Argan Oil it takes a single person 58 hours to produce 2 – 2.5 litres of Argan Oil and this uses 100kg of fruit. No wonder it’s the most expensive Oil in the world… even with the new “mechanical” process which is being adopted in some places in Morocco, to produce 4 – 6 litres of Argan Oil – it still takes 13 hours of work and uses 100kg of fruit! Argan Oil is very difficult to make, it takes hours of manual labour that does not come free, so unfortunately there is no such thing as cheap Argan Oil.
Argan Oil is an incredibly rich source of Vitamin E and essential fatty acids. It has astonishing moisturising and conditioning properties that assist in keeping hair and skin feeling nourished and hydrated. Argan Oil is not only considered a “super food” for the whole body, it also consists of twice as much Vitamin E as olive oil as well as vital antioxidants, phenols, carotenes, squalene and essential fatty acids.
- Rich source of Vitamin E
- Rich in omega-6 and omega-9 essential fatty acids
- Rich in antioxidants
- Non-greasy, lightweight and easily absorbed
- Astonishing moisturising and conditioning properties
- Assists in keeping hair and skin nourished and hydrated
I have listed 20 Reasons I always tell my family and friends why they should use Argan Oil!
The reason why Silk is so successful is that the amount of Argan Oil we use in our Products.
Most of our products have double the amount than any other Argan Oil product that I am aware of and in some cases triple the amount
Therefore delivering the results! Results mean happy customers & Value for money!
- Treat your wrinkles
Argan oil is rich in vitamin E and antioxidants that help to fight against wrinkles and other skin changes.
- Enjoy brighter skin
Use the 98% Argan oil on your face every night and day
- Fight off oily skin
Apply argan oil to the face – it acts as a sebum production regulator, reducing the skin’s production of natural oils.
- Combat dry skin
If you have dry skin, argan oil will help balance moisture thanks to its rich fatty-acid content.
- Fight dandruff
If you suffer from dandruff, apply argan oil to your hair and massage well into the scalp. Brush the oil through and wrap in a hot towel. Leave for 20 minutes before washing as normal. Then you will be able to see the difference: the oil will soothe, hydrate and nourish your scalp.
- Prevent hair loss
Following the same process as you would for dandruff, you can create thicker hair. Just remember to distribute the oil evenly.
- Enhance your existing products
You can even use argan oil to enhance your normal Skin Moisturizer.
- Repair damaged skin
Cracked skin on feet can be unsightly. Nourish cracked heels by applying argan oil, then cover with socks. The deep hydration will sink into the skin cells and soften your feet.

Massage your hands with argan oil each evening to rehydrate and strengthen, saving your nails from brittleness and cracking.
- Eradicate stretch marks
Reduce the appearance of stretch marks by massaging argan oil into the tummy, chest, hips and thighs.
- Treat skin complaints
Eczema and psoriasis can be relieved with the soothing power of argan oil, the substance is natural so it will not aggravate skin conditions.

Sunburn can be painful, but heal those hot spots with a touch of argan oil and feel the sudden difference.
- Treat bites and stings
Calm irritating bug bites and insect stings with argan oil, which will tone down the redness and soothe itchiness.

Argan oil is renowned for its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, providing organic, natural care for your skin.
- Help your joints
Ease your arthritis or rheumatic problems by massaging with argan oil daily. This helps to reduce pain and help improve your quality of life.
- Use as a baby product
Your baby can bounce around with moisturised and healthy skin. Use argan oil to hydrate without the use of the potentially harmful chemicals and additives found in many baby products.
- Combat the effects of the sun
Sitting in the sun can result in scaly skin. Applying argan oil will help the scaly areas disappear.
- Clear up your skin
If you’re prone to acne, use sebum-production-regulating argan oil. It will moisturise without making the face oily, and is also gentle on the skin.

Relax in a hot bath using argan oil. Add a few drops to the running water and soak up the natural goodness.
