Authentic Argan Oil is renowned in its cold pressed form for its medicinal & cosmetic qualities. 

Argan Oil is extracted from the fruit of the argan tree, native to Morocco. 

Extraction is the key to the quality of Argan oil. The fruit must firstly be dried in the open air so that the pulp of the fruit can be removed to access the nut. The Argan nut is cracked open by hand, mostly by women, to access the kernels which are ground and pressed to extract the oil. The oil is then rested to allow sediment to settle before filtering. 

Argan Oil is high in vitamin E, phenols and carotenes and is recognised for its restorative and protective properties. Used for face, body and hair, the Dry Argan Oil is hydrating without any long lasting greasy effect on the skin. 

The increasing productions of Argan Oil are having a socio-economic impact for women in Morocco. The labour intensive nature of Argan Oil production, now frequently carried out by women’s co-operatives, provides steady income, improved social status and increasing levels of autonomy for women.
