The Argan (Argania spinosa, syn. A. sideroxylon Roem. & Schult.) is a species of tree endemic to the calcareous semi-desert Sous valley of southwestern Morocco and to the Algerian region of Tindouf in the Western Mediterranean region. It is the sole species in the genus Argania.
Argan Oil remains one of the rarest oils in the world due the small and very specific growing area.
The oil is pressed from the roasted nut of this ancient argan tree many consider it the new “liquid gold.” Argan oil is an oil produced from these kernels is valued for its nutritive, cosmetic and numerous medicinal properties.
All argan sold today is produced by a women's cooperative that shares the profits among the local women of the Berber tribe. The cooperative has established an ecosystem reforestation project so that the supply of argan oil will not run out and the income that is currently supporting the women will not disappear. The money is providing healthcare and education to the local women, and supporting the entire community as a whole. Our cold-pressed, pure argan Oil is imported directly from Morocco. It is 100% pure argan oil. No other additives, oils, preservatives are in our argan oil.
