Organic Argan Oil

Argan Oil, Organic remains one of the most difficult oils to produce involving a time-consuming, labor-intensive process of several steps. To extract the kernels which yield the oil, local Moroccan workers collect the fruits which are either dried in the open air or processed mechanically to remove the fleshy pulp. Two types of Argan Oil are produced: cosmetic and culinary. Traditional processing methods call for roasting the nuts for the production of culinary Argan Oil but as this destroys some skin nutrients, nuts are not roasted for producing cosmetic Argan Oil. Artisan Aromatics’ Organic Argan Oil is a cosmetic type and the nuts have not been roasted so as to preserve the skin-nurturing properties. To remove the oil from the nuts in either case, the nuts are ground and the mixture is doused in water and pressed, causing the oil to float to the top. The oil and water mixture for our cosmetic Argan Oil is then filtered through an organic cotton sieve to remove nut debris and the pure oil is separated from the water by decanting. Our pure Organic Argan Oil may contain some sediment. This is a natural part of the production process and does not affect quality.

Argan Oil Usage

  • As a Body Oil additive, a few drops added to an ounce of other vegetable oils may enhance absorption and hydration in some cases (For Practitioners, please contact us for available professional discounts)
  • As a Hydrating Face Oil (apply a few drops to damp skin)
  • As a Hair Conditioner (apply a few drops to damp hair after shampooing; use fingers to distribute from scalp to ends)
  • Add a few drops to your favorite body lotion for added hydration
  • As a Conditioning Agent in soaps & cosmetics

Safety Considerations: Argan Oil may irritate some people’s skin when applied topically. Even though Argan Oil comes from a stone fruit (rather than a true nut), irritation is most likely to occur when used by people who have nut allergies so we recommend avoiding Argan Oil of any type if you are allergic to nuts. Our Organic Argan Oil is processed for cosmetic use and should not be used for cooking or other methods of internal consumption.
