About Argan Oil

The Argan tree: The tree of life

The precious Argan Oil is produced from the seeds of the Argan tree (Argania Spinosa), which only grows in south-western Morocco. The Argan tree can live 150 to 200 years and produces its yellow (plum-like) fruits every other year during the dry months (July till September). UNESCO has certified the Argan tree forests that spread over 1,970,000 acres throughout the semi-desert. The 30 meter long roots of the Argan tree sends water deep into the ground rather than leaving it to dry on the surface, which is important in preventing the desert from advancing further and destroying livelihoods.

The Argan tree itself is a multi-use tree and plays a significant part in Moroccan life:

Producing Argan Oil
