For Shame!

Shame on you Organix for launching several new products containing argan oil. 
Ladies, in case you're behind the eight-ball, argan or Moroccan oil is derived from the argan tree which is on the endangered species list. PLEASE do not use products containing this oil. The argan tree is on the endangered species list because of western civilization's (that's us, folks) increasing demands for this oil even though it is scientifically proven to be no better for hair or skin than all of the other oils we've been using all these decades. 

Stop falling for the hype and allowing yourselves to be brainwashed by greedy capitalists! You can't be "natural" while contributing to the possible extinction of a species. It's just hair.


  1. There needs to be more awareness on this. I'm going to do some research on it because we still have to be responsible consumers.

  2. My favorite line, "You can't be "natural" while contributing to the possible extinction of a species."

    Well said love, well said.

  3. I was reading this article today: and honestly I'm torn about buying or not buying.

    I haven't bought the oil, but previously I considered by a product that contained this oil.

  4. I understand born2bnatural....I see some products I'd love to try but they have argan oil or baobab extract so I just don't buy them. I'm not a Green Peacer or a vegetarian, but I don't believe in using something that might not be here 20 years from now. I mean, can you imagine Africa without baobab trees?!
