You probably know that Argan Oil is used not only as a culinary ingredient but also in cosmetics. The technology behind the cosmetic Argan Oil and the culinary Argan Oil is a different.
The Argan tree produces fruits. They are gathered and their nuts removed by hand. Then – again by hand – these nuts are cracked and one, two or three kernels are collected. The oil comes from these kernels after they are cold-pressed.
If you roast them first, you get culinary oil. If you cold press unroasted kernels, you get cosmetic argan oil. That is the difference between the two.
