The argan tree is native to Morocco and is known to live up to 200 years. Argan oil is laboriously cold pressed extracted from the nuts of the tree. Argan Oil is rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids (Omega-6 and Omega-9). Argan Oil possesses a remarkable ability to nourish, moisturize and protect the skin as well as help to support skin elasticity. It absorbs quickly leaving aging skin feeling smooth and silky.
We selected our argan oil distributor as they support our values. Here is what they have to say: “We strive for sustainability in all aspects of our business, and that includes in our ingredients. We have previously shied away from using Argan Oil because most argan production is unsustainable. We have, however, found a wonderful supplier who looks after not only the argan trees but also the local farmers in rural Morocco. They have invested in solar energy, water-saving harvesting techniques, and pesticide-free growth. In addition, our supplier focuses heavily on living wage jobs and opportunities for local workers, providing training for villagers in their community and growing in partnership with them. Although we are still careful in our use of argan, we are pleased that when we do use it we are supporting sustainable farming practices that operate hand in hand with positive social impact. Thank you for your part in supporting sustainability without compromising on quality.“
