Our founder Gill Cabler Sampson visits Morocco
Argan Oil is becomming one of Morocco's most famous products. The argania spinosa trees only grow in the southwest area of Morocco. This oil is one of the rarest in the world due to the small supply and the limited growing area. Our founder, Gill Cambler Sampson travelled to Morocco to meet the people in this region & find out more about the way they have processed the oil for generations.
How Argan Oil is made
After harvesting the green olive looking argan nuts they are left to dry until they are brown & shriveled. Once dried the women use two stones to break them apart. There are three layers to an argan seed. The outside layer is made u of tough skin, the middle layer is fleshy & the inside layer is the nut which has one to three kernals inside. The nut is cracked and the kernels are ground down to produce a runny paste, this is all done by hand so as to preserve the healthy nutrients that are lost by machine pressing. Finally the paste is squeezed by hand to extract the argan oil. To make one litre of oil you need 88 pounds of fruit.
