How is cold pressed virgin argan oil made?
Argan oil is made from the kernels of the fruits that grow on argan trees. After the nuts have been collected, the nuts are dried to remove the fleshy part. Or it is removed mechanically to speed up the process before starting the extraction process.
Then the argan nut in the argan fruit is opened to collect the argan kernels, which is all done by hand. For culinary argan oil, the seeds are first roasted, with cosmetic argan oil this is not done to prevent a nutty smell.
The grains are ground and pressed into a brown puree, leaving a pure unfiltered argan oil. After this it is placed in barrels and the substance is left for about two weeks so that the solids can settle to the bottom. The clearer argan oil is filtered, leaving pure argan oil.
This vegetable oil has been extensively tested and approved for use in Cosmetics
