By generating a sustainable source of income, ARGAN OIL enables the real economic and social development of the inhabitants of the region, and in particular the women, since argan production is traditionally a feminine activity. Even today, women are responsible for the delicate and painstaking manual work of pulping and crushing the fruits to obtain the precious oil.
Very similar to a large olive, the fruit of the argan tree contains stones. Cosmetic ARGAN OIL is obtained by pressing them.
It takes about 6 to 7 argan trees to produce 1 litre of ARGAN OIL, given that each tree represents on average 6 to 8 kilos of nuts (i.e. a little over 40 kg of nuts). This is what makes up its commercial value.
Due to its composition, namely a high content of oleic acid (Omega 9) and linoleic acid (Omega 6), and vitamin E, ARGAN OIL is full of scientifically recognised moisturising properties.
