Argan is a really interesting ingredient that I have been tracking for some time. There are less than a handful of medical studies directly testing its benefits for anti aging and increasing elasticity of the skin. The results are promising for this ingredient. At the very least it does hydrate the skin effectively to boost the benefits of retinol and reduce the potential irritation from its use. I hope that more studies come out to really see if there is a true direct anti aging benefit from Argan. This naturopathica product is a nice product to use if you have sensitive skin and are looking for a retinol to include in your routine.
