Where Does Argan Oil Come From

The oil is extracted from the fruits of the Argan tree. The bright green Argan tree fruits ripen in June / July and are around 2-4cm long. Communities come together to get the fruits off the tree with sticks and then collect them from the ground. They are then left to dry until they form a dark brown husk around the Argan nut. When ready to press oil the husks are removed revealing the brown Argan nut. Berber women crack the hard nuts open by hand. Inside each nut are the raw kernels which are cold-pressed to extract the pure argan oil.
Given the intricate process of crushing the nuts by hand, local Berber women work almost a day and a half to produce just one litre of oil. This explains the high value and esteem associated with original hand-pressed Argan oil. This is why we source our 100% Argan oil organically from Morocco and keeping to Morocco’s tradition that Berber women of Morocco hand craft the Argan oil as they have done for centuries. It is of the up most importance to our company that we ensure that these amazing women are treated fairly and paid for the amazing work that they do in providing such an amazing product.
