Argan oil, a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree, found in Morroco. The virgin olive oil is a fat obtained from the olive, a traditional tree crop of the Mediterranean Basin.

“We combined Moroccan Argan Oil that is only recently being used in skin care commercially, and Virgin Olive Oil that is renowned for its natural health, beauty and wellness benefits. This strikingly distinctive, vibrant combination brings out the best from both ingredients, for a feel good and do-good factor that will help start and end the day right,” she added.

The high dose of fatty acids in argan oil such as Omega-6, Omega-9, vitamin A, tocopherol and linoleic acid can provide soothing, anti-aging, anti-oxidant and moisturizing properties to skin. It can make hair look shinier, eliminating limp tresses and strengthening the hair, increasing manageability, reducing breakage, preventing frizz and split ends.

“Working with two potent natural ‘miracle’ ingredients required that we did not tamper with nature. This is why there are no harmful ingredients. We formulated the Botaneco Garden range to be rich yet non-sticky, easy to use and rinse off, allowing for layering of the products for a long-lasting, delicate fragrance to complement users who value natural and organic solutions to beauty needs,” Mrs Defline explained.
