Common Uses

Argan Oil is hand pressed from the nuts of the fruits of the Argan Tree that grows only in Morocco. The Argan tree is known to live up to 200 years and is one of the rarest oils in the world. For centuries, Moroccans have used the unroasted Argan oil in skin care preparations and the roasted, with its distinctive nutty aroma, in cooking. A very labour intensive process is required to shell and crush the fruits prior to pressing the oil. Our Argan Oil purchases support a women’s cooperative. Their sales of Argan Oil have transformed the economy of their village.

Argan Oil possesses a remarkable ability to nourish, moisturize and improve skin elasticity. It is also used for hair and scalp treatments and the restoration of brittle nails. The oil is high in lipids including omega-9 oleic acid and omega-6 linoleic acid and it can be effective in treating dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, acne and sunburned skin. It is a good choice for inclusion in formulations for mature skin. It shows some sun protection properties against UVB and UVA rays. Its high polyphenol content makes it a strong anti-oxidant and adds to its stable shelf life.

Argan Oil also possesses anti-inflammatory properties and is a highly beneficial addition to formulations intended to reduce swelling and ease muscular aches and pains.
