Argan Oil comes from the nut of the trees that grow wild in Morocco’s Atlas mountain region. For centuries, Moroccans have used Argan Oil in their daily life and now this rare oil is enjoyed worldwide. Argan oil’s unique moisturizing and skin nourishing abilities include naturally occurring vitamin E and antioxidant content. Contains rich essential fatty acids making it the perfect oil for anti-aging and hair applications. Argan Oil is considered rare due to the labor intensive, manual extraction process which is performed primarily by Moroccan women. The raw nut is harvested, de-shelled and crushed prior to hand pressing the fruit, to get the precious oil. Most Argan products on the market contain very little Argan Oil due to the high cost of the oil. Plantlife’s Argan Oil is 100% Argan Oil.
