Native to the Atlas mountain range in southern Morocco, the essential oil comes from kernels inside the pits of argan fruit. Argan trees can live for 150 to 200 years. Their deep penetrating root systems allow for long, fruitful life spans, even in very dry climates. Aura Cacia Organic Argan Oil comes from the women’s cooperatives of southern Morocco. The oil is cold-pressed and certified organic.
What’s the difference between organic argan oil and conventional argan oil?
Organic oils differ from conventional oils in that the botanicals from which they are derived are grown according to the USDA’s Organic Standards. Our manufacturing facility and all of our organic oils have also been certified organic by the established third-party certifier, Quality Assurance International (QAI).
