Argan oil is extracted from the kernels of the Argania Spinosa tree, found in Morocco. This thorny tree has a green, fleshy-type, fruit similar to an olive, but larger and rounder in size. Inside this fruit is an extremely hard shell containing one to three almond-shaped kernels. After goats eat the fruit, kernels remain and are collected by
farmers to produce the oil.
Production of oil is a lengthy process. Nuts are cracked open to remove kernels. It can take 12 - 20 hours of work to produce one liter of oil, so it can be expensive. After the oil is extracted, a thick chocolate, paste-like, residue remains from the kernels called Amlou. Amlou has a flavor like peanut butter and is, often, served as a dip with bread.
100% pure Argan is natural and cold pressed to ensure the best quality and highest grade oil. It's lightweight with a golden color and hint of reddish tinge. It contains high benefits of vitamin E, carotenes, fatty and essential fatty acids, phenols, phenolic acid and squalene. It has natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
