USDA Organic Pure Argan Oil 1oz by Aura Cacia
Organic argan (Argania spinosa) oil is rich and deeply nourishing with the capacity to support the overall vitality of the skin, face and hair. Argan oil is an emollient, often used as the moisturizing ingredient in conditioners, balms, and serums.
Native to the Atlas mountain range in southern Morocco, the 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.
Ingredients: Organic Argan (Argania Spinosa) Kernel Oil
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).
Aura Cacia’s organic argan oil comes from a women's cooperative in the southern part of Morocco. The argan is cracked by hand, making it a very labor intensive job. Argan is one of the main sources of income for the women in that area of Morocco, so when you purchase our argan oil, you're supporting women across the world.
