Argan oil is extracted from the fruits of the argan tree, which contains seeds that are cold-pressed and becomes something of a miracle oil for skin and hair. The oil is rich in vitamin E, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. It also has a documented ability to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The oil penetrates easily into the skin without leaving an oily feeling. It is extremely thin and thus suitable for the sensitive area around the eyes. If you roast the seeds before pressing, the oil is used in cooking and can then have health-promoting effects, for example on blood fats. The oil itself is basically completely odorless.
Argan trees that produce nuts grow mainly in Morocco. The tree plays a major role in maintaining the balance of nature and is an important economic part for the local population.
Since the mid-1990s the main part of the production take place in women's cooperatives, that both produce and sell the oil. Our oil is produced by the women's cooperative located in the southern regions of Morocco.
