Argan oil, also sometimes called liquid Moroccan gold. A precious beauty ingredient that has found its way into the beauty industry in large numbers, especially in recent years. Everyone MUST have this in their products, but there is also a lot of counterfeit or poorly processed argan. It is therefore really important to find good suppliers of argan oil. SELF is also a very big fan of argan oil and you can find it in many SELF products!

Argan oil is the secret of the North African Amazigh tribes. They have been using the oil of the argan tree for their skin and hair for centuries. It is a beauty miracle of Mother Nature, but why? And why is it so precious?

Authentic argan oil is extremely expensive because a lot of manual work is involved. Pure Argan oil is one of the rarest oils in the world and is praised for its rich concentration of vitamins and minerals. The argan nuts must be collected and undergo a strict selection process to select the best fruits. But what makes high-quality pure argan oil so expensive is because opening the nuts is still done manually and because you need a lot of nuts to get 1 liter of argan oil. You can actually assume that cheap argan oil is not pure argan oil.

Why is argan oil such a wonder ingredient?
