Argan Oil Benefits

image001Argan oil is created by extracting the natural oils from Argan tree nuts. The argan tree is primarily found in Morocco but it can also be found in Israel or Algeria. Given the limited areas where this tree grows, there is a short supply of this oil, but high demand for argan oil products. This is further complicated by the difficult extraction methods used to produce the oil which limits its shelf life to 3-6 months, leading to high prices for argan oil.
