Extracted thanks to the traditional Berber methods, the Argania Argan oil faithfully perpetuates an old craftsmanship. This liquid gold is fully extracted by hand. A dozen hours and about 100 kg of fresh fruits are needed to produce one liter of extra virgin Argan oil.
Originally from the South Atlantic Morocco, the argan tree is an oleaginous tree that can’t be found anywhere else. Survivor of the Tertiary era, he shows an exceptional vitality that allows it to sustain itself in an extreme environment. Thus, it has for centuries been the backbone of the traditional agrarian system of the Berbers living near the Arganeraie.
100% natural, virgin Argan oil is extracted from the kernel of the fruit of the argan tree. For centuries, Berber women living near the Arganeraie produce this oil for the food needs of local people and also use it for their traditional beauty treatments.
