Cold Pressed Argan oil, also known as Moroccan liquid gold, is one of the most precious and rare oils in the world. Due to its high content of vitamin E and the optimal combination of essential fatty acids (Omega 6) and natural antioxidants, it is considered an excellent natural emollient and moisturizer to protect skin and hair from environmental aggressors.

Cold pressed Argan oil is extracted from the fruits of the Argan tree, also known as the “tree of life.” This majestic tree covers an area of 820,000 hectares in southwest Morocco.
The fruit of the argan tree is fleshy and resembles olives, its harvesting and processing is traditionally a matter for Amazigh women.
The production of argan oil is an entirely artisanal process and requires considerable work. From July to September, the fruits are picked on the ground and dried in the sun to be then stored. Once dried, the fleshy pulp is removed by hand, and with sharp stones, the women break the shells to obtain an argan nut. This nut represents 25% of the weight of the fruit and can contain up to three oil-rich almonds. Of course, the pulp and the remains of the fruits will not be thrown away, they are offered as animal feed.
To produce 1 Kilogram of pure oil, it takes 30 Kilograms of argan nuts. The fines are mechanically crushed and then cold-pressed, resulting in a brown paste that produces virgin and 100% natural argan oil. The resulting argan oil is left to rest for two to three weeks so that the solids suspended in the oil settle to the bottom. Then it is filtered for increased purity and clarity.
Moroccan cold pressed argan oil is treated without the use of solvents or heat, which allows preserving 100% of all the nutrients contained in the oil.
