Argan Oil is cold-pressed from the kernels of the Argania spinosa trees growing in the arid valleys of southwestern Morocco. Popularly referred to as Liquid Gold, Argan Oil is prepared by hand in a traditional, labour-intensive method and extracted directly from the dough-like paste by kneading it until all the precious oil is squeezed out.
Argan trees grow and tenaciously survive in semi-desert areas of the Mediterranean and are known to live up to 200 years. The deep roots and small leaves of the Argan tree allow it to resist arid winds and water loss, resulting in a nut with a unique oil profile. For centuries, women across the Mediterranean have used Argan Oil in their beauty regimen for vibrant, healthy-looking skin and hair.
