Moroccan Argan oil is a blessing in disguise for the beauty industry and has been on the rise for years. It has been referred to as “liquid gold” by the New York Times and has high levels of fatty acids and vitamin E which are very beneficial to the hair and skin. Argan oil grows in the Southwest region of Morocco and is extracted from the nuts that grow on the trees in the area. Since argan oil has a limited growing area and a small local supply, it is one of the rarest oils found in the world. This explains why there is such a small supply for argan oil, yet the demand is through the roof.
There are two ways in which argan oil is extracted and both ways are clean and safe. The first way that the oil is harvested is by picking the argan nuts from the tree itself or finding the nuts under a tree that have fallen. This is the easiest way to collect the argan nut and it usually happens in late July or early August. Workers in Morocco must also check under the argan trees to see if there are any signs of argan nuts. This is because goats are very prominent in Southwest Morocco, and they often climb up into the argan tree to obtain argan nuts. Once the goats have successfully attained the argan nuts, they spit out the nut and just consume the fleshy part of the fruit. This is the main reason why our workers must check under the trees for argan nuts that have been spit out by the goats. Although this may seem unsterile, the kernels are protected in a bulletproof shell and all of the argan nuts must be cleaned thoroughly before the oil is extracted.
Once all of the argan fruits are collected, the first step for producing argan oil is letting the fruits sit in the sun to dry out. There are other techniques for drying the argan fruit out which involves mechanically removing the pulp of the argan fruit which also dries out the nut. It can take up to two days to remove the pulp from the argan fruit which leads to the nut being able to crack. After the nuts have been dried out, the next step is very time consuming and labor extensive. This step involves the workers in Morocco manually extracting the oil from the kernel. In order to extract the oil, some traditional tools are used along with manual labor that breaks down the argan fruit into a sludge-like substance from which the oil is taken from. These traditional tools are similar to the use of a pestle and mortar, which breaks down the argan nuts allowing the oil to start flowing out. Since the oil is being extracted from the sludge-like substance, people then need to filter out this sludge so that the oil is the only thing that is left. After this happens, the workers in Morocco decide which type of treatment the oil works best for. It can be used as a Moroccan argan oil hair treatment, or simply just an argan oil treatment.

Benefits of Using Argan Oil
As mentioned earlier, argan oil has many benefits for your hair and skin mostly because of how enriched the oil is with nutrients and vitamins. Argan oil can be used for many different purposes, but the most important uses are dealing with:
-Argan oil has many benefits to your skin, but the biggest being the moisturizing capabilities of the oil. Argan oil is high in vitamin E and fatty acids which help soften and hydrate the skin. This oil is very easy to apply and absorbs into your skin almost immediately. Unlike most other skin moisturizers, our argan oil products are non-greasy which helps give your skin that natural boost.
-The next benefit of argan oil is that it is used as a hair conditioner. When argan oil is used in hair conditioner, it makes your hair look shinier along with it feeling softer. Many people often run into problems with some conditioners that result in split ends and hair beginning to look dry. However, the argan oil conditioner helps prevent split ends from popping up and also limits how frizzy your hair will get throughout the day.
-Nobody wants their hair or skin to look older than their actual age, which is why argan oil is perfect for making your body look much younger. If you use argan oil as a skin moisturizer it will help with preventing wrinkles from appearing and will also help with restoring the elasticity of your skin, making it feel much softer.
