When learning what is argan oil, it is important to understand its rich history. Argan Oil is a rare and precious commodity. It has been used in the beauty rituals of Moroccan women since antiquity. Argan trees grow in the semi-desert area of south western Morocco. They produce fruit smaller than apricots.Goats love this fruit delicious and will climb the prickly Argan trees to eat it. In the past, the pits from the goat’s droppings were cracked open and the kernels inside were pressed to make Argan Oil. The journey through the digestive system of a goat is not a necessary step in making quality Argan Oil.Goats also damage Argan trees as they climb them. All of our Argan Oil comes from goat-free farms.

How it’s made:

Despite its naturally nutty aroma, Argan Oil is not made from a nut at all. Argania spinosa trees are fruit bearing, and Argan Oil is made from the kernel inside of the pit of the fruit. This product is nut-free.The extraction of the oil from that kernel inside the fruit is done by hand at Argan Adrar by herself and her hardworking team of women. This hand extraction process is very time consuming.The fruit of the Argan tree is green in early spring. It then turns gold and falls from the tree. It is picked and opened. The outer layer of fruit is often given to local goats and the pits are removed and dried in the sun.Then the hard work begins. Each pit is cracked between two stones. The kernels are then removed, crushed in a mortar with a pestle, and then ground into a thick paste by hand with a stone quern. The paste is then squeezed to produce the oil. The solid part of the paste is used as animal feed or a type of soap.


There are two varieties of Argan Oil. Some is for culinary purposes and some is for cosmetic use. If the oil is to be used in cuisine, the kernels are roasted before grinding. This brings out the delicious nutty flavour in the oil. Roasted kernels produce a lot more oil than unroasted kernels. This is why culinary Argan Oil is less expensive than cosmetic.Argan Oil for cosmetic use is made from raw, unroasted pits. It too has a slightly nutty aroma when you first apply it. But that scent disappears within a few minutes.


Argan Oil is made of unsaturated fatty acids, Vitamin E/tocopherols, squalene and sterols. Each of these components is unique and useful for different reasons. Some act as antioxidants. Others help with chronic inflammation. Some properties are even known for their ability to protect against skin cancer and for being anti-tumorigenic


Argan Oil, one of the rarest and most expensive oils in the world, contains numerous benefits as a miracle ingredient that not only protects and nourishes your skin, but reverses environmental damage, wrinkles and premature aging.
The active substances called triterpenoids in argan oil offer amazing skin protection benefits. Not only are they both anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, but also promote tissue and scar repair and healing as well.
80% of argan oil is made up of unsaturated fatty acids that are extremely resistant to oxidation. It also contains a group of compounds called sterolins that improve skin metabolism, reduce inflammation, and promote excellent moisture retention.The high concentration of vitamin E and tocopherols in argan oil help stop free radical damage to the skin, while helping to reduce wrinkles by restoring the skin’s hydro-lipid layer. Ailments such as chicken pox, acne, psoriasis, and eczema have all been improved by the oil’s topical application, which also helps to prevent and treat unwanted scars.
Not only does argan oil have amazing benefits for the skin, hair and nails, it also provides numerous nutritional benefits from consumption. Culinary argan oil- which is processed differently than cosmetic argan oil- can help lower cholesterol levels, aid in digestion, reduce inflammation, and even increase circulation to strengthen the body’s immune system. As a note, culinary argan oil and cosmetic argan oil are not interchangeable. Always choose cosmetic argan oil for skincare purposes.


Argan Oil is internationally recognised for it’s power to improve your skin and hair. Loaded with skin healing antioxidants and fatty acids – it moisturises, repairs and nourishes the skin and restores condition to damaged dry hair. But Argan Oil is a rare oil and quite pricey, and only premium Argan is suitable for use on the skin. So how can you know if your Argan Oil actually is the real deal? Follow our guide for all the tips on securing the best pure authentic Argan Oil.


Premium authentic Argan Oil is a deep yellow colour, which is why it has been given the nickname: “Morocco’s Liquid Gold”. Argan that is clear or straw coloured has likely been subject to industrial processing, or been diluted with cheaper oils. Alternatively, oil that is more brown than gold (and smells very strong), may well be Culinary (Roasted) Argan Oil.


Quality cold-pressed cosmetic Argan has a natural scent because it comes from the seed / kernel inside the Argan nut. The scent is often described as “light and nutty” and well tolerated by most people, although it can be considered a little too “aromatic” for those with a strong sense of smell. Be rest assured that the natural scent of quality Argan will disappear once the oil has been absorbed into your skin. Generally, those that know their Argan Oil, are reassured by an aroma as it is a good indication of authenticity and purity.

Most of the Argan available for sale or added to other products is refined Argan oil. That means it has been deodorised (had the natural scent removed by steam processing). This makes make it more appealing for cosmetic formulators to mix into their products. However, deodorising also makes it easier to both mask the aroma of low quality Argan seeds and extend the sale life of stale oil. Further, the bulk of the Argan Oil in commercial products is actually Industrial Argan and has been extracted using chemical solvents such as hexane. These types of processing reduce the quality of the oil. Deodorising reduces the skin healing antioxidants by 20% and chemical extraction degrades the oil qualities by more than 60%. So the tip here is to avoid deodorised and over-processed Argan if you want to use it on your skin.

Texture & Absorption

Premium Argan oil has a rich, weighty texture on the skin. It spreads very easily and is absorbed within minutes. Poor quality oil is light-weight or has a lasting slippery feel on the skin, and has probably been diluted with a cheaper oil or over-processed.

What else should you know?

a) Ingredients: Pure Argan Oil should be listed as the only ingredient on the bottle, i.e. 100% argan oil or 100% Argania Spinosa. Nothing else. If the label states “with added Argan” or the Argan is not listed as the first or second ingredient, then you will not be getting any value for the extra dollars you spend because the Argan content will be less than 50%. Also the term “Moroccan Oil” is frequently used but it is a description for marketing purposes and not an ingredient. This often applies to products with formulations that contain only a small amount of refined Argan Oil (i.e. < 20%) but have lots of added silicons.

b) Packaging: Mechanically pressed virgin Argan Oil has a 2 year shelf life due to the high levels of Vitamin E that are naturally present in the oil. No need for added Vitamin E, unless the oil is refined or likely to spend time on the shelf after it’s use-by date. However, Argan is a vegetable oil and prone to oxidation just like olive oil. So packaging is important. The best packaging is dark glass bottles (amber, green or blue). Aluminum bottles and opaque plastic bottles are equally effective against oxidation, but may have additional issues regarding leaching and waste disposal.

c) Certifications: Certification means that the argan producers and suppliers are regularly audited to assess their compliance.
