What are the properties and benefits of argan oil?

In Morocco, argan oil, found in all Zorah’s products, is called a precious oil. It has been used for centuries because of its many virtues. Argan oil is exceptionally rich in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, vitamin E and sterols, making it highly hydrating and a powerful natural anti-aging agent.

How can I make it part of my skin care routine?

Argan oil can be used in different ways for different reasons including to:

  • Hydrate the face and use as a natural anti-aging product
  • Remove eye makeup gently
  • Nourish the body at a deep level
  • Repair chapped hands
  • Soothe and treat eczema
  • Massage the body
  • Repair hair when used as a mask
  • Relax by adding 3 drops to a bath

Where does Zorah’s pure argan oil come from?

Mélissa Harvey, founder and president of Zorah biocosmétiques, discovered the impressive properties of argan oil in 2003 during her international development internship in Morocco. This precious oil, which has been used in Morocco for centuries, contains extraordinary dietary, pharmaceutical and cosmetic properties. It is extracted from the fruit of the argan tree—a tree unique to Morocco—which is grown to fight desertification and is protected by UNESCO. Zorah supports and invests in cooperatives run by Berber women who produce argan oil in Morocco. Learn more about our story in the video.
