Moroccan oil is a good product, however, it contains very little real argan oil in it. It has the same inexpensive ingredients found in most hair serums. The marketing claims though are clever and over-inflate the nutrient and antioxidant benefits of Argan Oil in the product. Why? Because a single 3.4oz bottle contains less than 5% argan oil.
Retailers who sell this product (including the company website) typically do not include a picture of the back of the bottle nor do they list the ingredients. Most people are unaware of the ingredients list until they get their hands on a bottle, but we’ve listed them below.
INGREDIENTS: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, Butylphenyl Methyl Propional, Argania Spinoza Kernel Oil (Argan Oil), Linum Usitatissimum (Linseed ) Extract, Parfum (Fragrance), D&C Yellow-11, D&C Red-17, Benzyl Benzoate, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone.
About MoroccanOil Treatment
The primary ingredients in MoroccanOil Treatment are silicone polymers. Dimethicone and Cyclomethicone are the main ingredients found in common drugstore hair smoothing formulas. So why is it that this product is so expensive? Good marketing and branding… the company named their product line the same name as the primary ingredient (argan oil other wise known as Moroccan oil) consumers want to buy. Tricky, tricky!
The ingredients listed on the back of the label are sorted by quantity with the largest amount of a single ingredient listed first. If MoroccanOil Treatment claims Argan Oil to be it’s featured ingredient, why is it wedged between Butylphenyl MethylPropional (a fragrance) and Linseed Oil? There’s more synthetic fragrance in this product than argan oil.

The company might rave about argan oil’s benefits, but their shamefully small concentration of actual argan oil is deceptive marketing and exploits people’s trust. If you want a product that makes your hair healthier-looking, can be used on your face for wonderful anti-aging results, and get you way more more bang for your buck, try Reinventing Aging 100% pure argan oil.
