Coming from a Berber family, Argan oil has been part of our life since our youngest age. Our parent and grand parents have been using it for decades and even centuries.
Argan oil is a great cosmetic for hair, skin, face and nails but it’s also a great culinary oil and our goal is to bring, not only Argan oil, but all the best Morocco has to offer to your door step right here in Europe.
In fulfilling this goal, we aim to provide you with the best quality products and your satisfaction is our top priority.
Argan Oil is a rare, natural oil, extracted exclusively from the kernels of fruits from the Argane tree which can only be found in southern Morocco. Argan Oil has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for wrinkles, deep hair hydration, acne, shaving bumps, sunburn, eczema, psoriasis, scars, stretch marks, brittle nails, and even diaper rash.
Today, research has shown that pure Argan oil is a rich source of vitamins A and E, carotenoids, sterols, polyphenols, and essential fatty acids like linoleic acid, making the oil a powerful hydrating, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidant beauty treatment.
We source our Argan oil from the cooperative Argamis which employs Berber women who manually extract the pure Argan oil by hand.
Argan Europe is commited to bring you the purest Argan oil and we aim to support the Moroccan women working for Argamis.
Finally, we also support the Europe businesses by making sure everything else than our core products are actually fromEurope. As an example, this includes our product labels, shipping boxes, hosting etc.
ARGAN ARGANE SOUSS
Argan Oil is made from the kernel inside of the pit of the fruit.
The extraction of the oil from that kernel inside the fruit is done by hand at Argamis by their hardworking team of women. This hand extraction process is very time consuming.
The fruit of the Argan tree is green in early spring. It then turns gold and falls from the tree. It is picked and opened. The outer layer of fruit is often given to local goats and the pits are removed and dried in the sun.
Then the hard work begins. Each pit is cracked between two stones. The kernels are then removed, crushed in a mortar with a pestle, and then ground into a thick paste by hand with a stone quern. The paste is then squeezed to produce the oil. The solid part of the paste is used as animal feed or a type of soap.
