100% Argan Oil Refined.
Our argan oil is extracted from the nut of the Argan Tree (Argania Spinosa), native to Morocco. The tree, Argania spinosa, or commonly called an Argan Tree, is spiny and thorny. It typically grows up to 30 to 25 feet, approximately 10 meters tall, and lives for up to 200 years. The tree produces a yellow-green petal and flowers bloom into an amazing broad fruit with a pulpy unpleasant odor inside, surrounding a hard nut, containing oil rich seeds. The seeds are pressed by expeller to obtain pure Argan Oil.

I was pleased until I placed it in the refrigerator with other oils to maintain freshness and it became nearly solid and separated. I've never seen pure argan do that before leading me to think it's not pure argan oil!
I have used this in sugar scrubs and beard balm....in love!!! If you were on the fence because of expense remember a little goes a long way and it’s totally worth it!!
