Argan Oil is exceptionally rich in essential fatty acids and sterols. These nutrients make Argan Oil an effective treatment for dry or sensitive skin boosting moisture levels and helping skin repair.
The Argan tree is found only on the Moroccan coast around Essaouira and Agadir. A real ‘beauty secret’ for Berber women, the oil is made from un-roasted argan kernels; it is also traditionally used for massaging joints and for nail and hair care.
Melvita Argan Oil is fairly traded from the Ounarha Woman's Co-operative in Essaouira. The women there hand-crush the kernels and then extract the oil using a cold-pressing system.
Our Argan oil complies with the ethical criteria for fair trade: fairness for producers when buying raw materials, preservation of biodiversity and the environment, and responsible, sustainable farming methods.
Argan oil is also fantastic to use to repair dry hair.
