Argan oil in itself is a tribute to the Amazigh or Berber women that discovered it nearly a thousand years ago. It is a genuinely luxurious edible oil handcrafted using ancient techniques; it is delicious yet rich in essential fatty acids and contains more tocopherols than olive oil.

The argan forest was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1998 and is essential in defending Morocco from the Sahara desert. These ancient trees also have a significant role in rendering income for the women of this cooperative that would otherwise not exist.

This journey has been a labor of love for the past six years, and we hope to continue sharing this marvelous gift at your table.

Here are a few argan oil facts:

Every part of the argan fruit is utilized; the dried fruit pulp is used as animal feed, and the shells are ground and used in body scrubs or cosmetics.

Culinary argan oil is produced from roasted kernels, however, they are considered drupes not nuts.
