Argan oil, also called “liquid gold”, is a truly effective natural oil for the skin. Naturally rich in essential fatty acids, natural vitamins and antioxidants, it acts in synergy with our cosmetics to create a precious and easily absorbed emulsion. This is because it is extracted in a completely natural way.
The women of the Moroccan cooperatives have been passing down their knowledge on the argan tree and its precious fruit for generations, but above all on how to extract the oil. The fruits of Argania spinosa, which lives exclusively in Morocco, are similar to kernels which contain small almonds inside them. The harvest of the fruits takes place in a totally natural way since it is necessary that they fall to the ground naturally when they ripen and dry, helped by strong winds, and especially during the months of June and July.
Inside it hides a seed that is roasted (this is why argan oil can sometimes recall that of peanuts).
Subsequently, the seed is chopped in a stone mill, with the addition of water. From this process a kind of paste called “malaxage” is obtained. Still using bare hands, this paste is then processed until the argan oil comes out.
Argan oil arrives at our company in Italy directly, the product comes in fact pure from the cooperative, without other substances or fragrances that alter it. The oil is bottled in special tanks directly in Morocco; these containers are sealed and lead sealed to keep the quality of the freshly extracted product 100% pure and safe!
