Argan Oil (Argania spinosa) is extracted from the kernel of the Argan tree nut. The Argan tree grows in forests in South Western Morocco. Picked by hand, the nuts are cold pressed to produce the most wonderful light oil which for years the people of Morocco have been using to nourish their skin, hair and nails
Our oil is produced and bottled in our plant in Morocco. The oils are certified by ECOCERT and the plant is officially certified by ONSSA, the Moroccan Ministry of Health and Hygiene.
The main reason why Argan Oil is so effective is that it is extremely rich with Vitamin A and E. Not only that but it is packed with anti oxidants, Omega-6 fatty acids and linoleic acid.
When you apply Argan Oil to your skin, trocopherol from the Vitamin E encourages cell production thus promoting healthy skin and hair. Many of the world famous cosmetic companies use Argan Oil in some of their hair and skin products.
