The argania spinosa tree grows only in Morocco

Argan oil is produced from the fruits of the argania spinosa tree in Morocco

The argan tree (Argania Spinosa - Argania trnista) grows only in the semi-desert areas of southwestern Morocco. The argan tree resists prolonged droughts and is able to survive even in extreme temperatures. Argania Spinosa has been growing for more than 200 years. Currently, the argan tree is an endangered plant species.

Sites with the occurrence of argan trees have been protected by Unesco since 1999 as a national treasure of Morocco.

Argan trees play an important role in the environment and food chain. They are able to adapt to the most difficult conditions and still provide quality fruits. For quality argan oil, argania spinosa trees must be protected, such as our production.

If the argan trees are not protected, they become a frequent source of food for goats and camels, which reduces the quality of the argan oil. Animals love to chew on argan nuts, but they are unable to digest them. Argan nuts pass through the digestive tract of these animals, people collect them directly from the ground, which is easier than picking fruits from trees. The oil that is made from these fruits is the lowest quality oil.
