What is Argan Oil

Argan oil is produced from the nut "Argania Spinosa" (Argan Nut) or Argan Tree, which grows in canopied sprawls in a small region of Morocco. Here, the oil has been used for centuries with a wide variety of functions.

Where Does Argan Oil Come From

To create the oil using traditional methods, Argan nuts are first harvested from stands of trees and left to dry on the roofs of mud houses. The pits are then manually removed with the help of two stones. A thin protective skin is peeled off, and the pits are subject to a light toasting, a key step for giving the oil its distinct nutty flavour. The slightly heated pits are then ground and slowly kneaded in traditional stone mills to produce a creamy paste. After about 30 minutes of continuous mixing, and with the careful addition of small amounts of boiled water, the precious oil slowly dissociates from the rest of the paste. This golden liquid is Argan oil in its most authentic form.

About 30 kg of nut are needed to produce just one litre of true Argan oil; that's the harvest of approximately 5 trees. 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 these women do in providing such an amazing product.
