Argan fruits mature by June and they are picked and dried. After which, The dried portion is removed with a use of a machine. What are left are nuts that are manually crushed with the use of two stones by the women of Morocco. Crushing brings forth almonds that are either roasted (for culinary argan oil) or directly pressed (for cosmetic argan oil). Both culinary and cosmetic argan oils are made from the kernels of the argan tree and without any additives. Both are 100% all natural and are then poured in a bottle after being filtered.
