Argan oil



The argan tree (Argania spinosa) belongs, as does the Shea tree, belongs to the Sapotaceae family and thrives exclusively north of the Sahara, in the southwest of Morocco. It is protected by UNESCO and may be used but not felled in southwest Morocco. The yellow, date-sized and bitter fruits have an almond-sized kernel inside, from whose seed plates the valuable, clear oil is finally extracted. The oil is used as a food and medicine and also in cosmetics due to its nourishing properties.



The balanced fatty acid spectrum of argan oil includes 80% oleic and linoleic acid but also palmitic and stearic acid. The richness of the oil benefits dry and mature skin as well as diseased, sensitive, greasy and impure skin. It supports the regeneration of the skin barrier, protects it from moisture loss and has a cell-stimulating, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect. Argan oil is traditionally used for dermatoses, acne and allergies. Due to its valuable care properties, the liquid gold of Morocco is also a real treasure for customers.
