The oil is traditionally used for cooking, as well as for cosmetic purposes due to its high nutritional and cosmetic value.Morocco is known to be the largest producer of argan oil in the world, and the oil is a significant source of income for many women’s cooperatives in the country. The production of argan oil involves a labor-intensive process, as the kernels are first roasted and then ground to extract the oil. The oil is then filtered and bottled for use.
Argan oil is rich in antioxidants, vitamin E, and fatty acids, making it a popular ingredient in skincare and haircare products. It is believed to have moisturizing and anti-aging properties, as well as the ability to promote hair growth and repair damaged hair.
