Still mostly unknown in Canada, Argan oil is highly regarded in Europe and in North Africa where Berbers have been using it for centuries for its cosmetic, medicinal and dietary properties.
Produced in agricultural development cooperatives, Argan oil is derived from the Argan tree, a tree unique to Morocco which plays a crucial role in the fight against rampant deforestation.
Argan oil contains large quantities of antioxidants such as Tocopherols and Vitamin E, Omega 3 and 9, Phytosterols, Sterols and Squalenes. Scientific studies have proven that Argan oil revitalizes skin, restores skin cells’ vital functions, repairs skin’s surface, and eliminates free radicals.
Just like olive oil, which belongs to the same oleic and linoleic family, Argan oil contains 80% unsaturated fatty acids, yet is far superior to other oils due to its essential fatty acid content of 34% linoleic acid. These fatty acids contain specific nutritional and dietetic properties that make Argan oil very beneficial against cardiovascular diseases as well as skin dryness and aging.
With its unique flavour of roasted almonds and hazelnut, culinary Argan oil is recommended for low-cholesterol diets to help protect against cardiovascular diseases.
