Only ten years ago, Argan oil was barely known outside of Morocco, the only country where Argan trees grow. Since then, the oil has become a key ingredient in many beauty products, thanks to high levels of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Today, consumers use fast absorbing Argan oil directly on face and body to moisturize and nourish sensitive skin or to revitalize and protect their hair. During the last decade, many American and European manufacturers of beauty products added Argan oil to their formulations. In fact, there are now whole lines of beauty products based on Argan oil.

Argan Oil for All at Wholesale Prices!
Unfortunately, the booming demand for Argan oil has not always helped the indigineous population of the Argan forest. Large industrial oil presses flood the world market with mass produced Argan oil, often of questionable quality. This oil, used as ingredient in many Argan products for its cheap price, does not benefit the local population. Indigenous women co-operatives, which spearheaded the Argan movement and are the true stewards of the Argan forest, have been sidelined and excluded from the Argan boom. Clever advertising for Argan products sold in North America and Western Europe suggest that these benefit rural women of Morocco – unfortunately, most often with very little truth to it.
