Argan Tree:

Argan Oil comes from the Argan Tree (Argania Spinosa), a tree that grows only inside the South-west of Morocco. Used by Berber women for centuries because of its many virtues, Argan Oil is attracting more and more interest outside of Morocco because of its cosmetic properties.
Argan Oil is a miracle ingredient that is harvested in the kernels of the Argan tree. This natural material is rich in essential fatty acids as well as other important nutrients, which can play an integral role in the growth and development of effective skin and hair maintenance systems.

Production of Argan Oil:
Two various ways are used mainly for your production of Argan oil "traditional hand pressed" and "machine pressed".

Method Number 1 - Homemade (traditional hand pressed):
Once the fruits are matured, they fall in the tree and dried naturally under the sun. Nuts and kernels are pulped and crushed between two stones by Berber women. Small fruits inside called "kernels" are sorted and roasted in hand-made clay pot on a fire fueled from the shells of the
fruit. The kernels will be grounded by hand in traditional stone mills. The Berber women will have a creamy and rich consistency, which is kneaded by hand. They extract the oil slowly in the process that takes 24 hours to complete.

The capacity of each Argan tree is between 8-12 pounds of kernels. About 66 pounds of fruit are needed to produce just one liter of Argan Oil, which suggests it takes 5-6 trees. Producing the oil this way is extremely vital to receive the most genuine oil. Taking into account the hard work of crushing nuts yourself, the Berber women will work nearly a day and a half to produce one liter of Argan Oil.

Environmentalists estimate the annual production of Argan oil does not exceed 3 - 4 million liters of oil at times per year in order to save these rare miracle trees.

Method Number two - Modern manufacturing (industrial mechanical pressed):
You will find steps in the process of mechanically extracting Argan oil, the hardest to do manually, which has been mechanized to create faster production. Following your kernels are roasted they're machinery pressed; manufacturing is but one by mechanical methods. The oil will be decanted, filtered and bottled. This is a more cost effective way of acquiring the oil however; the oil continues to be restructured by the use of heavy machinery and heat.

Use the oil to the roots and be sure to spread it evenly down to the ends. Wrap a large towel around your face and leave the oil to do its work for the vast majority an hour. For an intensive conditioning treatment, leave the oil on overnight. Rinse off with a shampoo. In case your hair is frizzy, try to apply a couple of drops of the oil into damp hair following a shower and comb with the hair.

For face & body:
The Argan oil can be used on the face and on the body as a natural moisturizer. It can help to soften dry skin around the elbows or the knees and it's also good after sun oil to cool sunburnt skin.

For nails:
To bolster weak or brittle nails, mix equal elements of Argan oil and fresh lemon juice and soak for Ten minutes. This will only soften your cuticles and limit nail breakage but probably give your nails a proper radiance.
If you are allergic to nuts, book with your healthcare practitioner before using Argan oil.
