Saving face

A “superfood” for skin and hair which is famous for its anti-ageing properties is now available from a local company.

Bearna man Ronan McGuire set up Bearna Natural Care - which sells organic argan oil for skin and hair

- last year following a trip to Morocco. This oil, which comes from the kernels of the argan tree which are collected and pressed to extract the valuable oil inside, has been used by the Berber women of Morocco for centuries. It is high in vitamin E, antioxidants and fatty acids and can be used to moisturise and nourish the skin.

“Bearna Natural Care Organic Argan Oil is great for dry or frizzy hair due to the high content of amino acids found in it,” explains Mr McGuire. “It is also ideal for stretch mark treatment and is safe for use during pregnancy. It is highly absorbable and will leave skin feeling firm. It will wash out of hair easily, leaving it silky and enriched.”

* Bearna Natural Care Organic Argan Oil costs €14.50 and is available from Evergreen outlets, Health and Herbs, Sea Road, and Matt O’Flaherty pharmacies. For further information log onto or
