Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: What is argan oil?

A: Argan oil is extracted from the nut of the argan tree (argania spinosa), which is found exclusively in Morocco. The argan tree grows wild in semi-desert soil and is extremely well adapted to drought and other environmentally harsh conditions. The fruit has a green, fleshy exterior that ripens to a bright yellow. It contains a nut with an extremely hard shell. Within the nut, there are up to three almond-shaped kernels from which the oil is extracted.

The oil is highly valued for its cosmetic and health benefits. Scientists have now discovered that this exquisite oil is exceptionally rich in Vitamin E, carotenes, squalene, essential fatty acids and unsaturated fatty acids.

Q: Why use Proarganics Moroccan argan oil products?

A: Proarganics Australia imports 100% pure organic argan oil directly from the manufacturer in Morocco, so you can be assured of the purity and quality of the oil. A sample from every batch of oil produced is independently analysed by the Etablissement Autonome de Contrôle et de Coordination des Exportations (EACCE) to ensure the highest standards of quality control.

The 100% cold pressed oil has no colouring, fragrance or preservatives added. The natural and highly valuable properties of argan oil are retained in the cold press extraction process.

Proarganics products are fair trade and contain a high percentage of Moroccan argan oil with no colouring added.
