Rana* are a new Argan Oil brand based in Essex. The duo behind Rana, Neil and Eylem wanted to bring 100% Argan Oil to the UK as it’s not an easy find. The likes of Moroccan Oil and similar brands out there are not 100% Argan and mostly contain silicones and other ingredients. Not saying they are bad products but I would group them in the ‘styling’ category. If you want deep nourishment in the hair then those oils won’t suffice. Pure Argan oil can be used all over the body and face too unlike the latter oils.
Rana can be used under makeup, I haven’t tried applying makeup over the top as I prefer to use oils at night and serums in the day but you are not left with much residue so it would be quite possible to work. I have also been using this as a hair treatment, leave it on the mid-lengths to ends over night and wake up (after washing of course) to soft hair. Lastly this works wonders on the cuticles, mine are constantly dry and this restores and hydrates in an instant.
I have been a big advocate for Argan Oil for a couple of years as there are so many benefits to the Moroccan oil. Using this particular brand has made me realise that perhaps I have been using my other pure oils incorrectly on the face and that the less is more approach seems more appropriate. Will have to don a peg and dig them out for a face testing once I have used Rana up as my skin is a happy bunny once again.
