Virgin Argan Oil
Argan is a very healthy oil – rich in vitamin E, essential fatty acids (Omega 3s, Omega 9s) plus plant sterol.
It has a light, golden colour and tastes distinctively nutty though is milder than sesame or walnut oil. In Morocco it is traditionally used for dressing couscous or for cooking tagines, but this delicious versatile oil will add a delicate unique flavour to your dishes. It is ideal for dipping, salad dressing, seasoning and drizzling over pasta, fish, and meat dishes.
Hailed for centuries as the ultimate anti-aging skin care oil, almost everybody can appreciate Argan oil for the special care of the face, neck, hair, hands and nails. Fast absorbing.
Only the ripe fruits are knocked off the tree. The fruits are gathered and sun-dried. The pulp is removed then the nut-like inner cases are cracked between two stones (a hammer stone and stone anvil) in the time mannered tradition, revealing several kernels.
The oil bearing kernel is then cold-pressed. It takes the combined harvest of 6-7 trees to create 1 liter of precious oil.
