All things Oil

Moroccan Argan magic oil or liquid gold as it was fondly known as, rose to fame in 2010 when millions of bottles of the smooth, silky liquid flew off the shelves of every beauty store in the country. Used for centuries by Berber women to keep their hair glossy and their skin hydrated, it’s a trend the Western world have finally adopted.

The What, where, why and how of Argon Magic Oil

Derived from the Argan tree, this magical oil is full of vitamins, full of antioxidants and full of the promise of frizz-free hair and soft, supple skin. It is a plant-based oil made from argan kernels which are available in vast quantities across Morocco. The fruit picked from the tree is small and round, covered in a thick peel and containing an inner fleshy pulp. Reminiscent of the famous Russian doll ornaments of the eighties, once you peel back the skin and the inner pulp, you will discover yet another layer containing a hard nut, hiding three argan kernels full of the magical golden oil.

To extract the oil, the fruit is first dried in the hot Moroccan sun with the pulp being removed and used for animal fodder. The nut is then cracked and roasted to release the oil. The unfiltered oil is left to settle for up to three weeks before it is filtered and decanted into bottles. Argan oil is used for both cosmetic purposes and as a culinary product.

The oil that is used within the Moroccan diet can be used as a salad dressing, as a bread dip or to cook delicious Moroccan cuisine with. Various health benefits are claimed with the consumption of argan oil as it contains a large number of essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants. Furthermore, this wonderful oil is often used for medical purposes, acting as a natural anti-inflammatory agent.

So why is Moroccan Argan oil better than other oils?

It’s all to do with the harvesting process. Argan oil is cold pressed which is a much more delicate process, preserving the nutrients during the extraction method. The harvesting and extraction method of other varieties of oil use a faster, more convenient process, however, this fails to preserve the number of nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants found within the oil. Therefore, if you are looking for the crème de la crème of oils, look no further! This amazing oil does exactly as promised; whether used cosmetically or for cooking it has the power to hydrate, nourish, satisfy satiety and eradicate frizz forever!
