ARGAN OIL

Liquid Gold of Morocco

 

What is Argan Oil?

Argan Oil is produced from a the nut of the Argan tree, which only grows in Southwestern Morocco.

Local Berber Women work in fair-trade cooperatives where they hand-crack the nuts in between two stones, a technique they’ve used for centuries.
Instead of being put through a machine, the raw kernels are hand-extracted from the hard shell, hand-ground in a stone grinder, hand-kneaded for hours and first cold-pressed into the oil.

It takes one Woman 3 days and 30 to 40kg of Argan fruit to produce just 1 Litre of oil. This is why argan oil is so valuable.

The Story

Argan Oil has been used for centuries by the Berber people in Southern Morocco and Sahara to repair and replenish. It is known for being rich in essential fatty acids, Vitamins A and E and for being the perfect natural antioxidant.
It will work hard to protect the face/skin, hair and nails – all while being 100% vegan.

As early as the 1500s, efforts were made to introduce Argan oil to European markets, but the commodity never took off. In the 20th century, more and more farmers began clearing long-standing argan forests to plant oranges, tomatoes, and other crops seen as more valuable.

Argan Oil today is one of the hottest beauty products on the market.

In 1998, the Argan forest in Morocco was designated a UNESCO protected biosphere, so Argan oil is sustainable.
