The Argan Tree, Argania spinosa from Sapotaceae family and grows only in Morocco. The trees can live from 150-200 years. For centuries traditional cosmetic products produced from Argania spinosa have been a well kept secret known only to Berber women in Morocco. Argan oil is believed to be one of the rarest oils in the world.
To produce Argan oil for cosmetic use, freshly harvested kernels from the fruit of the Argan tree are pressed and filtered through an organic cotton sieve, to extract the aromatic oil. The Argan oil is easily absorbed by the skin. This form of Argan oil is used for the treatment of dermatologic disease (acne, etc). Argan oil extracted by this method is used in Aromatherapy. In Europe, Argan oil has been used in the Aromatherapy industry for a long time, but for some reason it is not well known in the United States and is unavailable in retail stores.
Argan oil has almost twice as much vitamin E or a-tocopherol as olive oil and it is much richer in linoleic acids. Its anti-ageing properties, due to high levels of vitamin E and saponins (which soften the skin), are well documented.
Tocopherols are very important to human health because of their anti-oxidant actions and free radical scavenger affects. In traditional Moroccan medicine, Argan oil is used for the care of the body and face to counteract the effects of age or weather.

argan oil This is nice. It has a strange smell but the smell doesn't linger. Makes your skin feel great. It's kind of hard to get out of the bottle without shaking it vigorously, but it isn't any drawback since the product is well worth it. It is a great emollient for skin without harmful and irritating chemicals. All natural is the way to go if you really want your skin to heal and be refined. You can also use it on your nails and hair....more info
my first introduction to argan oil - great! After reading about the wonders of raw argan oil, this was the first product I purchased. I loved it from the beginning - including the pleasant nutty smell, the good absorption by the skin and the difference it made on my face. Combined with unprocessed shea butter, it makes a far superior skin moisturizer than expensive highly processed creams and lotions. Surely will stick with it.
I liked it so much that I sent small bottles for Christmas to female friends above 30.
great hydration I love this product because it is all natural and it does not feel greasy on my face. I use it under my mineral makeup and it works great,the only reason why I am not givig it 5 stars is because it does have an odor, but I got used to it and the smell goes away after you put it on....more info
Excellent for the skin! The smell is not very pleasant but it disappear while you make it penetrate into the skin. I love the argan oil, it leaves my skin very soft and healthy. It's a good natural anti-aging product. And I just use a couple drops a day so its very economical!...more info
Rather fine In spite of the unpleasant odor, which does disappear upon use, the argan oil makes the appearance of my complexion much nicer. It is soft, moist, smooth. A little bit is all that is needed for face and neck.
I can only say that my appearance is improved with a finer looking complexion.
Wonderful for dry skin I've used this product to get rid of eczema on my skin. Since the winter is coming, I'm stocking up knowing my skin tends to dry in the winter....more info
Like this but The product really work's but I really don't like the smell and neither
does my boyfriend. It lingers....more info
Raw Organic Argan Oil This product feels great on my skin, and I love its fresh, natural fragrance. I haven't used it enough yet to notice much change is diminished fine lines, but I can tell it is a great moisturizer. I was expecting a larger bottle, but I have found that just a little of this oil goes a long way. I have been using the oil for several weeks and the bottle is still nearly full....more info
ARGAN OIL I LIKED THE ARGAN OIL BETTER THAT MANY OILS THAT I HAVE UDED ON MY HAIR. IT DOES SMOOTHE MY HAIR AND DEFRIZZ IT MORE THAT OTHER OILS I HAVE TRIED. IT IS SOMEWHAT DRYER THAN MINERAL OIL ON YOUR HAIR AND DOES NOT MIX WELL WITH MINERAL OIL AS IT CAUSES BREAKAGE. I HAVE VERY CURLY, VERY WAVY, VERY NATURALLY FRIZZY, VERY WEAK, VERY DRY HAIR SO I THINK I NEED A STRONGER OIL THAN THIS FOR MY HAIR PROBLEMS....BUT AS I SAID IT HAS DONE A BETTER JOB THAN MANY OTHER PRODUCTS AND OILS THAT I HAVE TRIED AND I RECOMMEND IT IF YOU HAIR IS NOT AS DIFFICULT TO MANAGE AS MINE IS....more info
You have to try If you are looking for a product that promotes healthy hair and faster growing hair, this it it. I was excited to try this product because its rare and special. I started putting it on my scalp about a week ago, my hair is shiny, healthy, and growing once again faster than normal!!! Some people dont know how im growing it out so fast, this is my tiny little secret. You will love this stuff, and you will treat it like the delacy it truly is. ...more info
so far so good! I was told by an Algerian friend of mine that Argan oil is great for the skin and hair so I looked into it and purchased this product. so far it's been a good experience, however she's a little skeptical, since it has no scent and usually argan oil smells like burnt peanuts. we'll see in a few months if it really makes a difference. ...more info
This stuff is really great I've been using Argan oil for about five or six months. I use it on my hair, my face, my nails, my hands, - everywhere. It has taken a while to get under my skin enough to deal with some bad acne problems I suffer with, but I'm happy I stuck with it - Everything they say about this stuff is absolutely true! I Highly recommend it....more info
My new miracle skin treatment! I've been looking a while now for something to put on my face at night to prevent wrinkles, soothe skin, even out tone, etc. I bought several very expensive creams and serums and nothing has worked this well! o begin with, this particular company does a great job packaging the oil. It is cold pressed and sealed in a dark colored bottle (temp elevations and UV light will degrade oils and ruin their antioxidant capabilities). I actually store mine in the fridge and wrap in aluminum foil to be safe. Also, the price is the most fair on Amazon (100ml is about 3.5oz) and that amount will last several months.
I use it all over. Either I mix it with a little bit of my moisturizer to help it go on more easily, or into my body lotion. I was really skeptical about using it on my face, but it definitely healed some recent acne marks and it got rid of the dark circles under my eyes (this is all in the first week of use!) I've had those dark circles since I can remember and not even the best under eye creams have done so much work in such a little amount of time.
And you can feel good about using it because argan oil is extracted by womens' co-ops and the trees they use are now protected by environmental agencies. You're supporting the environment and the economy :)
P.S. I noticed some people commenting on the smell...yes, it has a faint nutty/pungent odor that I actually find pleasant. But it wears away after just a few minutes....more info
accident I had two surgeries following an accident and I am using this on the multiple scars. I have always used Vit. E in the past, but these are much larger more pronounced scars. This is working faster than Vit. E....more info
Excellent Service! Fantastic Product! I was amazed at how fast this order was processed and shipped. It only took 3 days to receive my order from the date of placement. High quality care was taken in the packaging, and the product is fantastic! I am a diabetic and suffer from very intense itching skin. Up until this product arrived, I had been using the oil from Vitamin E capsules for relief, but couldn't stand smelling like a fish all day, nor could I stand how greasy I felt! This 100% raw organic Argan oil penetrated my skin, and left it feeling very soft without the greasy, oily feel. My feet haven't felt this good in years, and I'm very pleased I purchased this product! I will definately buy more when this bottle runs out!...more info
Worth a try, though irritated my normal skin I have very normal skin and live in a humid environment (NYC). I've always used a tiny bit of Cetaphil lotion on my face but wanted something lighter for the summer. Argan is definitely light, and can be thicker as you put more on. There is something astringent or intense about it (which must be what everyone is talking about when they mention a "glow"). If you are used to treatments on your skin this may feel like nothing to you; for my very tolerant and calm skin, this is too much to use every day. I haven't seen any benefits, though it does feel very good when you put it on. Having it as a straight oil means that I can experiment with different combinations to find if there is a way that it can work for me....more info
Wonderful This is a must have!!! Has many uses for your entire body. Doesn't leave your skin oily. Try mixing with lotions and creams for more moisture....more info
Argan Oil --- amazing! After reading all the hype about this oil I figured I would give it a try to see how it would work with super sensitive skin. Absolutely Brilliant!
This oil is amazing..... no issues with my skin and I now have a tried and true product that isn't full of man made chemicals!!!
Could not be happier with this product!...more info
argon oil is good for many things I purchased the argon oil after my hairdresser used something called "moroccan oil" on my hair. He told me it was also good for the skin and the major ingredient was argon oil. I put a little on my hand which had a burn and the next day it was almost healed. I decided to try the pure argon oil and see if I preferred it to the "moroccan oil". Unfortunately, the pure oil although good is not as good as the "moroccan oil". I will definitely finish the bottle but would probably only buy the "moroccan oil" again....more info
