For centuries the native Moroccan people have used fruit from argan trees for their diet and skin care. Moroccan women have used argan oil, often referred to as “liquid gold”, as a beauty elixir. The oil was once extracted from the nut after a goat ate the fruit. Fortunately for modern technology, we no longer need to rely on goats to obtain this wonderful oil.
Housed in a recyclable glass bottle. The purchase of this product helps to support the social and economic welfare of the woman’s cooperative in Morocco.

About Wild Crafted Argan Oil: Better than Organic?
There has been a long-standing debate about which is better: “Wild Crafted” or “Certified Organic”.
Before there was Certified Organic, natural herbs gathered free of herbicides, pesticides, detergents and other harmful chemicals were referred to as “Wild Crafted”. Wild crafted herbs and plants are not farmed or sprayed with any kind of pesticide. They are plants that are wild, native and organic by their own nature and which retain the positive attributes of plants grown in their normal habitat. Certified Organic herbs and plants are grown on a farm and produced according to standards which translate into no harmful pesticides, fertilizers or GMO plants (genetically modified organisms) to enhance their growth. Healthy, yes. But because they are grown under ideal conditions and not necessarily in their natural habitat, they may not retain all the attributes of their wild crafted counterpart.
Both Wild Crafted and Certified Organic products are free of harmful chemical additives and are much better and safer than their commercial grade counterparts. However, one isn’t necessarily better than the other.
Apothekari 100% Pure Argan Oil comes from Wild Crafted Argan Trees.
