We use only Triple Extra Virgin 'Grade A' Argan Oil from Morocco. Our Argan Oil is super fresh and its F.A.R. (Free Acidity Rate) is 0.3% - the best quality in the world.
The best Argan Oil is produced from high quality nuts using a cold-press extraction method. It has a naturally earthy smell and is stored in dark colored glass bottles in order to protect it from sunlight to preserve its powerful properties.
You can expect a good quality Argan Oil to be absorbed quickly by the skin, without leaving an oily residue.
Our Argan Oil is USDA Organic Certified and Eco Certified.
The extraction process is labor-intensive, which is why Argan Oil is not cheap to buy. In order to keep the price low, many providers mix the oil with other, cheaper oils. In recent years, Argan Oil has become very popular and is now used in many skincare and haircare products. However, the amount of oil that goes into these products is very small in order to keep the cost to a minimum. In order to get the maximum benefit from this wonderful oil, you need to use it in its pure form.
Argan Oil has varying levels of odor which can be down to a number of factors. Oil with too strong a smell can be an indication that the Argan kernels used to make the oil were old. If this is the case then the oil is likely to have lost some of its properties from exposure to sunlight . It can also be down to the region in which the Argan Kernels have come from. For example, kernels harvested from the region of d’Essaouira produce a potent odor, whilst kernels harvested from the region of Ait Baamrane have a very mild odor. It is believed to be down to the nutrients in the soil . Other factors can play a part in the quality and smell of Argan Oil, including the way in which the kernels are stored and harvested. During extraction, it is common for water to be added to the kernels to soften the outer casing before crushing. However, this process reduces the shelf life of the oil, reduces the effectiveness of the oil and also results in a stronger smell.
The vast majority of oil being sold online is deodorized Argan Oil. This means the oil has been through a process to remove the smell of cheaper Argan Oil, which some people dislike. Argan Oil is usually deodorized using one of two methods, steam or chemicals. With the steam cleaning method, the oil is heated to a temperature of 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 2 hours. This makes the oil odorless and less golden in color, but also reduces the oil’s powerful natural properties.
Many Argan Oil producers add chemicals to remove the unpleasant smell from poor quality oil. As well as damaging the natural properties of the oil, it is no longer ‘pure’ or ‘organic’.
Our Organic Argan Oil is not deodorized. It’s filtered using the latest scientific techniques to reduce the nutty smell, without losing any of the oil’s powerful natural properties. This process also helps to create a more lightweight oil, which is much more easily absorbed by the skin and hair. We’re really proud of it!
