Argan Oil

  • Land products

Argan oil is derived from the argan tree, an endemic and iconic tree primarily found in the region of Souss-Massa in Morocco. The abundance of this tree in the forested areas, particularly in the vast biosphere reserve of the Arganeraie, presents an unparalleled opportunity for the rural population to find a significant source of income.

Whether produced in artisanal or industrial cooperatives, the process of extracting argan oil involves similar steps, with the difference lying in the tools used: pulping and cracking the nuts, roasting the kernels, crushing, kneading, and pressing.

Due to the recognized cosmetic, culinary, nutritional, and medicinal properties of this oil, it has become highly coveted and is now the subject of a thriving commercial industry, particularly in terms of exports. While visiting the region, it is undoubtedly the perfect opportunity to purchase argan oil and its derivatives at the best quality-to-price ratio. Whether you’re looking for culinary or cosmetic argan oil or related products, you can take advantage of the wide range of options available and make your purchases accordingly.
