Argan oil :

Argan oil

Argan oil is extracted from the kernels of the argan tree fruits. That tree is the most particular tree of the country since it only grows there.

The manufacturing is long and arduous, and the yield is low: it takes 100kg (220 lbs) of fresh fruits and about 10 hours of labor, to produce 1 liter (34oz).To be edible, the pits are lightly roasted, which accounts for its nutty flavor. It is cold-pressed which helps it retain its natural aspect for a cosmetic use.

Very rich in vitamin E, omega 3 and omega 6, this oil, has nourishing, regenerating and restructuring properties. It is used in skin care where it counteracts the effect of dryness and aging. It fortifies and revitalizes hair, and it also protects brittle nails.
It is used in massages to relieve muscular and joint pain, in nutrition, to prevent cardiovascular diseases and can alleviate the symptoms of skin conditions like small pox, eczema, acne and burns.
