Listing Detail Tabs

The oil contains 80% unsaturated fatty acids and is more resistant to oxidation than olive oil. Argan oil also contains 0.8% unsaponifiables (a large group of compounds also known as plant sterols or sterolins). Sterolins may assist in improving skin metabolism, reducing inflammation and promoting excellent moisture retention.
Argan oil is considered an effective anti-aging oil due to properties such as the high levels of vitamin E /tocopherols (anti-oxidants help neutralise free radical damage, which is important for skin exposed to polluted environments) and saponins (skin-softening agent). Besides cooling and soothing inflammation, it is also reputed to help reduce wrinkles by restoring the skin`s hydro-lipid layer.
Argan tree groves survive for 125 - 450 years, making them a valuable heritage for future generations.
Argan oil has a similar fat content to olive oil and is used for similar purposes.
Commercial Argan oil is more expensive than olive oil.
The Argan tree however lives longer than the Olive tree and requires no cultivation.
Traditionally the local Berber women collect the seeds and press them to obtain the Argan oil for domestic use. This is a laborious process taking about 12 - 20 hours of hand processing to produce one litre of Argan oil.
Oil produced by this method will keep for 3 - 6 months because it has extremely high vitamin E levels and is considered oxidatively stable.
Moroccan families produce the oil as needed from a store of the kernels, which will keep for 20 years unopened.
