Argan oil is made from wild-harvested Argan nuts which grow on tertiary Argan trees. The primordial tree is extinct except for a small area in North Africa’s Maghreb region called “Arganeraie”, a designated Biosphere Reserve protected by UNESCO. Local Berber women cooperatives, true artisans who use only traditional production methods, partnered with ARGAND'OR of Germany to produce Argan oil of highest quality. Only the best nuts are selected for the oil. The production process is entirely manual – from the cracking of the nuts to mild roasting for an outstanding taste to the hand-pressing in traditional stone mills. ARGAND’OR Argan Oil is 100% organic, pure and a product of fair trading practices. It is the only gourmet quality hand-pressed Argan Oil available in the United States.
