Argan oil is produced from an Argan nut coming from Argan tree, which only grows in Southwestern Morocco. This fruit is so nutritious that goats will climb trees just to eat them! Inside that little fruit, is the little nut that gives us argan oil. For generations, natives of the Argan Forest in Morocco have pressed the nut to extract this precious oil, to use as a dietary supplement, for wound healing and rash relief, and to nourish skin and hair. These slow-growing trees are so revered that in 1998 the Argan Forest was declared a Biosphere Reserve By UNESCO.
