For centuries, the Berber tribes of the Southwest of Morocco have resorted to the Argan oil as a basic component of their diet and as an element of the traditional medicine. At the beginning of the 90’s, chemical tests confirmed the valuable nutritional and dermatological properties of the oil. The oil is extracted from the fruits of a tree, the Argan (Argania Spinosa), that today it does only exists in a determined area between Essaouira and Agadir, at the Southwest of Morocco.
The chemical tests reveal that Argan oil has a very important concentration of fatty acids. It is composed of up to 80% of essential fatty acids, oleic acid (45%), linoleic acid (35%). It is highly valued for the big quantity of antioxidants. Besides, it has antiseptic and fungicides effects. It is also a food rich in tocopherols, especially in vitamin E, that represents the 69%.
With no doubt the presence of this antioxidant vitamin explains that partly, the reputation as a dermatological protector and being able to heal. It also has phenolic compounds which combination is unique: the scotenol and spinasterol, a type of sterols not very common among vegetal oils.
