We're here to help you know more about the 5 things you might not have known about Argan Oil!

#1 - It has been used for centuries

  •  Even though it's only been introduced on the international market in the past couple of years, Argan Oil has been used for centuries by Berber women (and men!) as part of their beauty regimes and delicious cuisines.

#2 - It's called 'Liquid Gold' for a reason

  • Argan Oil is produced from the kernels of the Argan tree (Argania spinosa) which can only be found in Morocco. Because of the rarity of Argan Oil, Moroccan Argan forests have become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • It can take up to 20 hours to crack open the argan kernels to extract and produce 1 litre of oil laboriously done by female-owned cooperatives.
