What is Argan Oil?
Argan oil is extracted from the nut of the Argan tree (Argania spinosa) found exclusively in Morocco. Also known as “Liquid Gold”, argan oil has been recognised for its health-enhancing and anti-aging properties. The oil is highly valued for its cosmetic and health benefits. Scientists have now discovered that this exquisite oil is exceptionally rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin E, carotene, squalene, essential fatty acids.
The Acuralle Difference
Great care is taken to produce the highest quality of oil for your use and enjoyment. The extraction and production of Acuralle Argan Oil is eco-friendly as every part of the organic wild harvest is used. The semi-mechanised process to produce the Argan oil combines traditional know-how and modern technology resulting in a superior quality oil.
Processing of the oil takes place in a production plant with the highest standards possible. However, every litre first requires two days of work at the hands of women who have learned the generational secret of preparing the raw product in harvesting, hand sorting and hand cracking the notoriously difficult to crack hard nut. Thus the manufacturing process ensures a high quality product and at the same time benefits the rural women of Morocco and their families, by providing a good means of livelihood for the community.
Traditionally, after the kernels are roasted and pressed into a paste, water is added to separate the oil from the thick liquid. However, introducing water increases the potential for bacteria in the oil. In order to achieve superior quality and longer shelf life for Acuralle Argan Oil, unroasted kernels are processed and machine pressed at a low temperature instead. Plus, this cold pressed method encourages greater retention of the naturally occurring Vitamin E, essential fatty acids and antioxidants.
