Argan skin oil
Argan oil in pure form
The pure argan oil, obtained by gentle hand pressing, is particularly recommended for the care of sensitive skin. It is massaged into the slightly damp skin after bathing or showering in a wafer-thin layer, is quickly absorbed and keeps the skin supple. The argan skin oil is also suitable for hands, hair and the delicate skin of children.
Skin caring argan oil. From Argand’Or
Argand’Or stands already since 2005 for high-quality care products, which are manufactured on basis of Arganöl. Only argan oil is used, which is extracted in gentle cold pressing from argan fruits of the Arganeraie. Argand’Or obtains it directly from the more than 20 women's cooperatives that have joined together in the UCFA (Union des Coopératives des Femmes de l'Arganeraie). This secures the income of the Berber families and preserves the social structures and the unique cultural landscape of the argan trees. All products from Argand’Or comply with the natural cosmetics standard ICADA (International Cosmetic and Device Association e.V.).
Valuable and Good for One’s Health.
The Moroccan Berbers have been using argan oil for thousands of years: The oil is an ever-present ingredient in the Berber cuisine and their body care products. In Europe, the valuable and rare oil has long since become an insider tip. For good reasons, because the creamy-nutty oil tastes delicious and contributes to protecting one’s health. The oil consists of over 80% unsaturated fatty acids, has a very high vitamin E content, and protects the human cell organism with its antioxidants. When applied to the skin, argan oil is quickly absorbed and leaves no greasy or shiny film. It moisturizes and has a positive effect on the skin’s tension. Even sensitive skin types or types or skin prone to irritation tolerate the oil very well.
The Moroccan Arganeraie.
The precious liquid is extracted from the fruits of the argan trees (Argania Spinosa). The trees – threatened with extinction nowadays – grow only in an area in the southwest of Morocco, between the Atlantic Ocean, the High Atlas and the Anti-Atlas: the Arganeraie. UNESCO declared the Arganeraie a Biosphere Reserve in 1998 to protect the trees and listed the traditional production of argan oil that uses stone mills and hand pressing as Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) in urgent need of preservation. Argand’Or uses hand-pressed argan oil from the UCFA (Union des Coopératives des Femmes de l’Arganeraie), an association of over 20 women’s cooperatives. These co-ops secure the incomes of Berber families while preserving the social structures and the unique cultural landscape together with the argan trees.
