Argan Oil remains one of the rarest oils in the world due to the small and very specific growing areas. 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. Berber women sit on the floor with rough rectangular stones between their knees cracking nuts with rounded rocks. Each smooth nut contains one to three kernels, which look like sliced almonds and are rich in oil. The kernels are then removed. It takes several days and about 32 kilograms of fruit - roughly one season’s produce from a single tree - to make only one liter of oil.Argan Oil has a unique, rich and complex composition.
Argan Oil has traditionally been used for hair, skin and nail care, massage, curing stretch marks and the treatment of various dermatological conditions. Such multitasking is possible only due to the presence of various biological components.
