Natural Sourcing Virgin Organic Argan Oil is pressed from the fruits of the Argan Tree (Argania spinosa), a tree that is native to Morocco and known to live up to 200 years. For centuries, Moroccans have used Argan Oil in skin care and within their nutritious diet.
Virgin Organic Argan Oil is gaining increasing attention by personal care manufacturers and the spa industries due to its significant content of nutritive components including essential fatty acids, Vitamin E, polyphenols, squalene and sterols.
Virgin Organic Argan Oil remains one of the most difficult oils to procure. A very labor intensive process, performed primarily by Moroccan women, is required to shell and crush premium quality argan fruits prior to pressing the oil. Virgin Organic Argan Oil is then produced by mechanically cold pressing the crushed fruits and then deodorizing the oil. It is then carefully packaged and stored to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this remarkably nutritive, cold pressed oil.
