ARGAN OIL (argania spinosa): Organic, non-GMO
Origin: Morocco

Method of Extraction: Cold-Pressed and Unrefined


Argan Oil is one of the most precious oils in the world. It is wild harvested, cold pressed and unrefined from the kernels of the Argan Tree which grows virtually only in the Argan forest of South West Morocco. The extraction process is time consuming and very labor intensive by the women  of Morocco. Argan oil is also known as "Liquid Gold". Its oil regenerates, heals, firms, and protects skin. It's rare and essential components make it known to be a natural aging product. It is rich in frolic acids, essential fatty acids, carotenoids, antioxidants, sterols, polyphones and saponins. It also makes the skin and hair more supple, can help heal acne, wrinkles, dry and scaly skin, and burns. It can tame frizzy hair, giving it a beautiful shine without being greasy.  It gives skin a youthful glow that reduces the visibility of wrinkles.

Extraction Process:
~The olive shaped fruit is gathered by hand
~The fruit is dried in the sun for several weeks on roof tops of mud-brick houses.
~The Argan nuts are exposed by a process called "pulping" which means the dried outer fruit is removed.
~The nuts are then crushed by and with stones to obtain the Argan kernels (seeds).
~The kernels are ground into a paste and the paste is then mixed with water to form a dough
~The extraction of the liquid gold can now begin!
