Argan Oil vs. Emu Oil

I want to bring everyone's attention to a great article I came accross today regarding Argan Oil and why it is better than Emu Oil.  The article came from the Makeupartistschoice and you can visit them at  They very succinctly describe Argan Oil and it's benefits as well as comparison to Emu Oil.  Great article and below is the copy....enjoy

"Argan Oil – Nature’s Skin Care Miracle

Enjoy toned, healthy skin (and beautiful hair!) with MUAC Argan Oil
Makeup Artist’s Choice wants you to maintain true beauty for your entire lifetime, from head to toe. That’s why we’re so excited to bring you Argan Oil — a product that you can literally use from top to bottom, particularly for your face and hair.
You may be familiar with Moroccan Oil and Emu Oil — both popular and comparable products to Argan Oil.
The difference? Argan Oil is completely natural with no synthetics and is cruelty-free. Our product is 100% Virgin Argan Oil.
Derived from the Argan Tree — a tree found in Morocco — Argan oil is one of the most rare oils in all the world. Apply it to your hair… face… body… even your nails for beautiful (and often unprecedented) results.
Here’s why we love it…
Reduce Wrinkles, Crow’s Feet… and Fade Those Stretch Marks
Argan Oil helps to reverse aging, provides wrinkle reduction… reduces acne… eczema… sunburn… psoriasis… and even stretch marks on your body. Rich with Squalene, it also helps protect your skin from free radicals that cause sun damage. Scientific studies prove it’s ability to correct the age-related deficiencies that cause wrinkling and loss of elasticity.
Although Argan Oil is in fact an oil… it contains natural anti-inflammatory agents to reduce the appearance of blemishes. Acne sufferers can benefit from its sebum regulating abilities, which reduce oil production in skin. All skin types can enjoy firmer… clearer… and hydrated skin with Argan Oil.
Now for your hair…
Achieve Lustrous, Moisturized, Shiny Hair (and with a faster drying time!)
When applied to damp hair, just one to two drops of Argan Oil penetrates your hair with Omega-9 Oleic Acid… Omega-6 Linoleic Acid… Phenolic Acid… Phenols… Carotenes and Anitoxidants, such as Vitamin E for lustrous, beautiful shine and moisture. Best of all, when using a blow dryer… the oil speeds up your drying time making morning routines more efficient (while protecting your hair).
Unlike Emu Oil, Argan Oil is 100% Organic & Cruelty-Free
When selecting beauty products, choose compassion. Many choose Emu Oil for their skin and hair; however, this flightless Australian Emu bird must be killed in order to harvest the oil from the bird’s body. Additionally, all animal by-products contain some bacteria no matter how thorough the processing.

At Zakia's Morocco, all our products are  100% cruelty free, so please practice responsible shopping and choose organic products versus animal by-products. By the way...we don't use Parabens, Mineral Oils, or other nasty stuff.  Do visit to learn more.



  1. Hi, thank you for your great post. I really appreciate the efforts you have put in your blog .It is interesting and helpful. Good luck with it!!! Organic Moroccan Argan Oil | Buy Pure Argan Oil Products

  2. I have to say that I ADORE Moroccanoil. My friend, who has fine blond hair, recommended it to me and I was shocked that one product could do wonders for two markedly different hair types & textures.

  3. Argan oil creams are great. I assume pure argan oil is even better.

  4. emu oil is better, bacteria is not neccesarily a bad thing.

  5. this doesnt say anything about emu oil so its not beneficial nor educative to the reader its honestly quite retarded
