Founded in 2012 Finest Argan is a company committed to sourcing the highest quality Argan oil from southern Morocco. We visit our suppliers on a regular basis and examine the entire extraction process ensuring the product is 100% pure. We only purchase oil from EcoCert certified extraction firms which ensures that high quality of production standards are followed.
The Argan Tree
Argan is a unique endangered tree growing only in southern Morocco. Its roots can reach up to 100 meters underground and the tree itself doesn't require much cultivation. It is often seen climbed by mountain goats attracted to its fruit.
Oil is obtained from kernels of the Argan fruit. Local women collect the nuts from under the trees every season, then break them and sell the obtained almonds for extraction. This is a very laborious process and therefore the oil is expensive. Our suppliers buy the manually extracted kernels in bags and then use a mechanical screw press to produce the oil.
There are two types of Argan extract: cosmetic and culinary. Both are mechanically cold pressed. The difference between the two is that the culinary version is obtained from slightly toasted almonds. This is done in order to enrich the flavour.
What makes our extract different from others on the market is its organic purity. Mainstream cosmetics contain Argan oil that isobtained using cheap chemical extraction. Some suppliers are tempted to dilute the product for profit. We put a lot of effort into ensuring that our customers (pharmacies and alike) receive only the finest, most pure organic version of the product. Our suppliers only use mechanical extraction to produce high quality cold-pressed oil.

The culinary version of the oil has a rich and appetizing nutty flavour. It is great for salads, dips and deserts. The extract is also a good health supplement. Every day use improves digestion, circulation and skin appearance. We offer culinary Argan oil in 100mL and 250mL bottles.
