Botanical Name: Argania Spinosa.
Origin: Morocco. Believed to be one of the rarest oils in the world, Argan oil is a robust, nutty oil made largely in Morocco from the nuts of the Argan tree. Argan trees used to cover much of North Africa but they are now greatly reduced in numbers, hence the high price of Argan oil.
Colour and odour : Dark to Golden, the smell is a mild sweet nutty aroma.
Shelf Life: 1 year
The nut is very difficult to remove from its sturdy fruit and the nuts were originally harvested, not from the tree, but from the droppings of the goats that climbed the trees and ate the fruit. The nut is related to the olive but has a distinct flavour of its own; its oil is mostly used as a hair and skin treatment. Our Argan base oil is studiously selected, tested for purity and subjected to rigorous quality control standards. This Argan Oil is sourced from Morocco and made with cold pressed extraction method.
