For the kitchen:The same process, with the difference that the argan seeds are roasted before pressing.

An experienced Berber woman needs between 12 and 15 hours to extract 1 liter of pure argan oil. In a multi-stage process, starting with the removal of the pulp, the crushing of the shell, which is several times harder than a hazelnut, to the grinding with the stone mill.
Prices:Caution is advised with very low prices. The guarantee that expensively offered argan oil is good, we would also not claim.This is and remains a matter of trust and precisely for this reason we provide a money back guarantee on the purity of our argan oil from D&A Moroccongold.

This makes argan oil a sought-after raw material in cosmetic applications. In addition, it prevents pimples and makes a smooth healthy skin.
Good to know:The Internet praises argan oil as the cure for all kinds of ailments. Most of the time, however, such products hardly deliver what they promise. So it’s time to take a close look at argan oil and the scientific findings about it.
Argan oil helps with skin problems
Whether for the relief of skin problems, or refinement of the hair, the reservoir of supposed positive effects, which Arganöl is to hold ready for our body well-being, seems to be almost endless. It is still declared today as “the liquid gold of the Berbers” and exported from Morocco to all countries.
There is only one production site for argan oil in the world. We are talking about the southwestern Moroccan region of Souss, which was declared a legally protected biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 1995. Is the cult that has now existed for decades around the oil extracted from the argan owed to chance or clever marketing? In any case, many studies exist.
