Our argan oil comes from an Organic-Certified modern mill in Morocco.
The composition of this precious oil (100% Authentic Argan kernel oil is rich in Vitamin E (tocophérols)).

The fruits of the argan tree are nut-sizes and may be round, oval or conical in shape. The fruits are covered by a thick peel which covers the fleshy pulp. The pulp surrounds a hard-shelled nut which represents approximately 25% of the weight of the fresh fruit. Contained within the nut are one to three argan oil–rich kernels. Argan oil is extracted from the kernels, with yields varying from 30% to 55% depending on the extraction method used. Extraction of the kernels is key to the argan oil production process. In order to extract the kernels, the argan fruits are first dried in the open air and then the fleshy pulp of the fruit is removed. The next stage involves cracking the argan nut to obtain the argan kernels. It is a time consuming and labour intensive process. Berber women, whose skills are unparalleled, often engaged in this arduous process in retrieving the kernels by undergoing a tedious manual work. The argan oil is decanted and left to rest for approximately two weeks. This allows solids suspended in the argan oil to settle to the bottom, creating a natural sediment. Pure argan oil may contain some sediment. This is a natural part of the production process and does not affect the quality of the argan oil.
