For centuries Moroccan women have hand-produced argan oil from the kernel of the argan tree, grown exclusively in southwestern Morocco. Commonly referred to as 'liquid gold', argan oil has numerous nutritional benefits that are complemented by its bold, nutty flavor.
The process of creating argan oil is resource, labor, and time intensive: 130 lbs of fruit + 20 hours of labor + 5 weeks of processing = 1 liter of 100% organic argan oil.
The process begins with harvesters picking argan fruit from argan trees. This is followed by cooperatives breaking down the fruit to nuts and then seeds, which is done by hand. Finally, associations (such as ourselves) cold-press and filter the oil, yielding 100% organic argan oil.
