Rich in Vitamin E, Argan is used instead of any other moisturisers – apply morning and night to protect  and soften your skin.

Argan’s anti-oxidant properties from high Vitamin E levels contribute to the neutralisation of free-radicals, particularly useful in the polluted Western hemisphere.

Argan’s anti-ageing properties due to saponins which soften the skin, restore fluids to your skin’s lipid layer reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Argan’s anti-inflammatory properties from plant sterols cool and soothe skin that has been exposed to wind and sun, reducing dryness and redness.

Argan culinary oil is 80% unsaturated and contains eight essential fatty acids.

Argan  oil contains twice as much vitamin E as olive oil and is rich in anti-oxidants.

Argan oil contains rare plant sterols not found in other oils, which have anti-inflammatory properties, beneficial for arthritic or rheumatic conditions.

Most of all the rich nutty flavour  of Argan oil is delicious on salads, stirred into soups, with couscous or as a dip for freshly baked bread.

My passion for argan

began in 2000 when I visited Morocco to study Moroccan herbal medicine having heard of a renowned herbalist who had practiced his art for 45 years. He looked like a medieval wizard with his flowing white robes topped by a fez. We struck up a rapport immediately.

As a Chinese herbalist it was fascinating to compare our two disciplines. This is where I was introduced to argan oil and here my passion for this unique product began…

  • This cleansing bar is amazing, got it as a gift with the Rose and Frankincense facial oil a while ago but only just got round to trying it. Wow! Takes off all my makeup, better than my usual cleanser and my skin feels brilliant after, soft and clean. The extra benefit is its softening my hands at the same time. Will be getting more of this, its brilliant!!!
  • "It fills the bathroom with the heady aromas of rosemary lavender and rose and leaves my skin amazingly soft and supple. I never go travelling without a bottle."

  • "I truly did not expect to be so bowled over by such a simple product. The improvement in my skin tone & texture has been exceptional. After about 3wks of use I began to receive many comments about my skin and I could quite clearly see the difference myself. I have never experienced this with any other product I have used and have tried many face products over the years, expensive & inexpensive but nothing has come close."
  • "I travel a lot and work in extreme environments and have even used my precious oil on grateful colleagues who have burnt themselves in the sun! I can honestly say that this is the best beauty product I own."

  • "When I am feeling decadent I put it on my face at night and my skin feels much softer the next day! I would recommend this oil to anyone."

  • I love the facial oil and also the hair oil, both great but the cleansing bar really blew me away. I love your products and really admire your whole ethic regarding the quality and the way your ingredients are sourced. I must admit I have always just gone along with the crowd but a couple of years ago I had something of an epiphany and started to look at what was actually going into all the rubbish I was piling onto my skin. It's pretty horrible when you start digging around, bad ingredients, mass marketing, exploitation and animal cruelty. I'm sure you are well aware, so I am very grateful that there are people like you who actually care about what they create and the implications of production. Thank you very much. S.K.
