I've been using the Regular version since May 2012 and tried the Light version for the first time last night. Below's a list of differences/similarities I've noticed:
FEEL: Compared to the Regular, the Light is definitely lighter and doesn't have as much of a "shine". However, both still do hydrate my skin.
INGREDIENTS: I no longer have the exterior packaging for both but I do remember being surprised that the Light had more ingredients than the Regular. I believe the additional ingredients "help" make the Light a lighter version. Also, on the actual bottle's label, only the Regular has "Organic" on it.
SMELL: The Light has a smell that isn't pleasant; and it caught me off-guard because the Regular has little to no scent to it.
OVERALL: I much prefer the Regular and will be going back to it pronto.
Lastly, I have dry, sensitive skin. And I haven't used it for my hair but I think the Regular would be a better product for that use. Good luck.

I would go with the light version if you plan on using it for your hair and skin.

I believe the Light is more wearable during the day, too. It's not as "heavy" and it dries to a matte finish as well! I have really oily skin during the afternoon, and really dry in the morning--and I use the light and it's been great. I think if you want a thinner, fast-absorbing, lighter consistency to the oil, pick the Light, but if you want to use it on your hair, body, etc. you might want to go with the original version.

Okay so knowing the above, which one is better to use?

Aragon oil is the straight oil extract and the light is an 'ester' of the oil. It goes through a different process to create the end product. Normally the original oil is broken down by alcohol. Or rather the acid in the oil is. That's as basic of a way I can think of to explain it ... It just goes through a different chemical procedure. Hope I could help.
