Argan oil refers to a very rare and precious oil, which is extracted from Argan tree fruits. The scientific name of Argan Tree is Argania Spinosa. This tree is quite common in the southwest region of Morocco. To be specific, it is found between Essaouira, Agadir and Taroudant areas.
There is no doubt that this is a tree which is considered more than precious by the inhabitants of North Africa. The main reason for this is because of its social and ecological values. In 1999, UNESCO added the Argan tree to the World Heritage List, declaring the 25,000 square kilometres of Argan woodlands a Biosphere Reserve.
The production of bulk organic argan oil is quite laborious. Berber women take part in the tiresome and manual process. They normally take part in this activity for hours. So what normally happens in the production process of bulk organic argan oil?
The primary step in the process of producing bulk organic argan oil involves separating fleshy fruit from the hard shell nut. After this is done, a stone is used to crack the shell. What follows is a collection of kernels that normally have 50% oil content.
Culinary oil is produced by roasting kernels. When raw, the kernels produce cosmetic oil. Fresh pressing of Argan oil guarantees high quality. The good thing is that our 100% pure organic argan oil is preservative free. The guaranteed lifetime of our cosmetic and culinary argan oil is twenty-four (24) and twelve (12) months respectively.
