Argan Oil is extracted from the nut within the seed. This is most commonly used a skin moisturiser. It is high in Vitamin E and fatty acids. Originated in Morocco and Northern Africa. The extraction is very labour intensive. Argan fruit was originally eaten and excrected by goats after which the Moroccan women would collect the partly digested seeds. The seed shell is 15 times harder than a hazelnut. The oil shelf life after the manual extraction process is 3 to 6 months. Claims have been made that Argan Oil has been sold around the Mediterranean since the 12th Century BC. It is the rarest vegetable oil in the world. It is packed with anti-oxidants. You only need a drop or two of pure oil to benefit. Trocopherol within Vitamin E boosts cell production.
