We are pleased to introduce [Link Removed] , a 100% pure, wild-crafted product that is hand-picked by a woman's cooperative in Morocco. Sourced from trees grown without the use of pesticides or chemicals in the hilly area indigenous to the region, this argan oil is cold expeller pressed (unrefined) in Italy using a charcoal filtration process to remove sediment, odor and color while still retaining the wonderful properties of argan oil. Excellent as a daily moisturizer or to strengthen and condition nails and hair. Apothekari Argan Oil retains a subtle nutty odor and is light, penetrating and non-greasy. We think you'll love it!


For centuries, women in Morocco have harvested the nuts of the argan trees and milled them into what's been called "Liquid Gold". The finished product, argan oil, was then used for food, hair care, skin care and medicine. It's not surprising that argan oil found so many uses as it is naturally rich in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, carotenoids, ferulic acid, sterols, polyphenols, vitamin E and squalene. Together, these elements help to heal skin, reduce inflammation and fend off free radicals.

Argan Oil offers a multitude of benefits:

Moisturizes and protects skin
Neutralizes free radicals
Strengthens and conditions brittle nails
Conditions and restores shine to hair; helps tame frizz


Not sure how to incorporate Argan Oil into your routine? Consider the following:

Face Moisturizer. Massage a few drops of argan oil directly onto your face and neck to moisturize and protect. It absorbs quickly and is not greasy.
Face Glow. Add a drop or two of argan oil to your foundation, bronzer or tinted moisturizer for a dewy, luminous glow.
Leave-on Conditioner. After the shower, while your hair is still wet, add a few drops of argan oil to your hair, ends and scalp to hydrate and moisturize. It's especially nourishing if your hair is dry from daily use of a blow dryer, straight-iron or curling iron.
Hair Styling Shine. When your hair is dry, use as a styling product by adding a few drops of argan oil to the palms of your hand. Rub your hands together and run your fingers through your hair to create shine and tame frizz. You only need a small amount. It lasts a long time.
Overnight Hair Treatment. Massage a generous amount of argan oil into your hair, ends and scalp. Wrap your hair and leave it on while you sleep. In the morning, wash your hair and you'll have luminous, soft locks.
Cuticle and Heel Softener. Massage a few drops of argan oil into your cuticles to soften, moisturize and encourage nail growth. Use as an overnight treatment to nourish cracked heels by working a good amount into your feet and toes. Cover with socks and wake up to supple feet. This is especially timely as winter approaches.
Body and Bath Oil. Add a few drops of argan oil directly onto your skin, into the bath or body lotion. It's safe to use on a baby and to soothe a pregnant belly too.
