How is argan oil obtained?
Argan oil is obtained by pressing the seed pods of the fruit of the argan tree. These trees grow only in Morocco and are protected there. Argan trees are thorny, can grow up to 12m in height and have an large canopy. The tree starts bearing fruit only after it is 5 years old. Obtaining the oil is a very laborious process. First the harvest - the seeds are picked from the ground and not harvested from the tree directly because the trees are very thorny. The seeds are then dried in the sun, freed from the dried fruit pulp and opened. The seeds are then ground and lukewarm water is added to produce a paste which is kneaded until the oil separates.
