What do we have in common with goats that climb trees? They eat the fruit of the argan tree found in Morocco, the same trees that create argan oil, which we love to rub on literally every part of our bodies. 

Argan oil, also known as "Liquid Gold," has been used by Moroccan women for centuries for its beautifying benefits. The oil is so popular because it is a 100 percent organic source of vitamin E and essential fatty acids, making it something of a celebrity in the world of beauty.

At left: Josie Maran Argan Sugar Balm Body Scrub, $28, heals all over as it hydrates.

Its many miraculous skin and hair benefits include  moisturizing, anti-aging and healing properties for the entire body. It softens dry skin, heals acne, lightens scars, reduces wrinkles, softens cuticles, repairs damaged hair and more. What's not to love?

Check out seven of our favorite products that contain the miracle oil.

    • A Look Inside Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago: The New ‘Winter White House’

      Mar-a-Lago sits along a coveted stretch of coastline in Palm Beach, Fla. It was built between 1924 and 1927 by cereal heiress and socialite Marjorie Merriweather Post. Donald Trump purchased the property, which he would later dub the “Winter White House,” in 1985 for $5 million and used it solely as a private residence until turning it into a private members-only club in 1995. The Mar-a-Lago Club also boasts an oceanfront swimming pool, a beauty salon, a spa, five red clay tennis courts, a croquet court, and seaside cabanas.

    • Why flight attendants prefer to work in economy over first class

      Everyone wants to be upgraded on a flight, apart from the flight attendants it seems. You’d think the cabin crew would much prefer working for a handful of posh people in Business or First Class, instead of hundreds of flustered passengers in Economy, but it turns out that’s not the case. Many airlines have an promotion system, where you start off in economy, then work your way up to business and first class, but other companies let the crew choose where they want to work for that flight. Because according to the accounts of several flight attendants, while they might be serving 10 people instead of 70 in the fancy cabins, their constant demands actually mean they work a lot harder.

    • Ivanka Trump steps into role behind her father

      Washington (CNN)On Monday evening, as word spread of yet more anti-Semitic behavior around the nation, it wasn't President Donald Trump who was the first to speak out against the threats to regional Jewish Community Centers — it was his daughter, Ivanka Trump. It isn't unusual for Ivanka, who, along with her husband Jared Kushner, identifies as an Orthodox Jew, to speak out on such a heartfelt issue. Whether handling topics like women in business, as she did when she convened a roundtable with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to help "level the playing field" for female entrepreneurs and working parents, or acting as de facto first lady and accompanying her father on a trip to comfort the family of a fallen soldier, Ivanka has been the humanizing force of the Trump administration.
