The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel is the first shower gel by the brand that I’ve ever tried, so it had a lot to live up to!
Although I have some favourite shower gels, I still like to mix it up and try new ones because variety is the spice of showers…err, I mean life!
I’m already a fan of the benefits of Argan Oil, and the cool thing? The Argan Oil supplier for The Body Shop is Targanine, which is a community fair trade partner.
According to the information that PR was kind enough to send me, Targanine is a “Moroccan Berber women’s cooperative that hand-picks and hand cracks the Argan nuts, which are then pressed into oil. These cooperatives invest in social projects such as school rooms for children and adult learning, creches, doctors’ visit and micro-loan facilities.”
Argan Oil has been used by centuries by the Berber women to protect and nourish their skin and hair from the harsh Saharan winds and smouldering sun. It contains essential fatty acids (including linoleum acid, Omega 6) and natural tocopherols, which is why Argan Oil is sometimes called the “Queen of Oils”.
