Argan 100% Pure

"Liquid Gold"

Pressed: December 2013

General Information:

Argan oil is a natural “anti-aging” remedy that is derived from an olive-like fruit grown in the arid valleys of southwestern Morocco. The women of Morocco’s native Berber people have produced and used this oil for centuries for its therapeutic properties.

Argan oil:

  • Softens and moisturizes skin
  • Helps maintain the skin's natural elasticity
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acts as an anti-inflammatory to sooth irritated or damaged skin
  • Is rich in vitamin E, antioxidants and essential fatty acids
  • Can be applied topically to help nourish dry hair and brittle nails
  • Wont clog pores
  • Is effective in treating acne, psoriasis, and other skin disorders
  • Soft and silky

Extraction process:

Our Argan oil is produced in Morocco using the same traditional techniques that have been used for centuries. First, the fruit is carefully harvested by hand and any damaged or rotten fruit picked out. The women then spread the fruit to dry in the sun on the flat roofs of mud-brick houses. The nut is removed from the dry fruit and then crushed between two stones to remove the oily grains from the rest of the nut. The grains are then gathered up and ground in a traditional stone hand mill until they form a smooth, creamy paste. The paste is slowly mixed with boiling water to form a dough, which is then kneaded for thirty minutes until the pure Argan oil separates out. It takes thirty kilograms of fruit to produce one kilogram of Argan oil, or all of the fruit that approximately five trees can produce in a season. For this reason, and for the color of the oil, Argan oil is known around the world as “liquid gold.”

All our Argan oil is wildcrafted, cold-pressed, unrefined, and has a two-year shelf life. It should be stored in a cool, dark area.
