Argan Oil

Argan Oil is extracted from the kernels of the argan tree (Argania Spinosa), which is native to Morocco. Argan essential oil is rich in antioxidants, vitamin E and essential fatty acids, including omega-6 and omega-9. These nutrients help to nourish and protect the skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The oil is extracted using a cold-pressed method which helps to preserve the oil’s natural nutrients and antioxidants.

Extraction Process of Argan Oil

Cold-pressed extraction is a method used to extract Argan Oil from the kernels of the argan tree. This process is performed without the use of heat or chemicals, preserving the natural properties of the oil. The extraction begins by hand-selecting the finest argan kernels, which are then gently pressed using a mechanical press. The pressure exerted on the kernels helps to release the oil without altering its composition.
The resulting oil is pure and unrefined, maintaining its natural aroma, color, and nutritional benefits. Cold-pressed Argan Oil is known for its high levels of antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids, making it highly prized for its nourishing and rejuvenating properties. This gentle extraction method ensures that the oil retains its integrity, providing a premium quality product for use in skincare, hair care and culinary applications.
