argan oil what should i know about it

Argan oil is an important traditional fat with many uses.

In small cooperatives skirting semi-arid forests in southwestern Morocco, Berber women have been crafting argan oil by hand for centuries. With a flurry of calculated peeling, pounding and roasting amidst stone mills and open fires, beautiful shimmering argan oil is created at their fingertips. The task is artisanal in nature, and left almost exclusively up to the charge of these respected women, who have learned the trade through generations of passed-down wisdom.
