Back to my roots
Atlas Argan was founded by me, Saïd Mohammed. I’m the son of a Dutch mother and a Moroccan father. With Atlas Argan, I went back to my roots: my ancestors have been living in the Sous region in Morocco for over two hundred years. And this just happens to be the only place in the world where the argan tree grows.
TRICKS OF THE TRADE
As a child I was spoon-fed the love for the ‘Moroccan liquid gold’, as argan oil is called. During our family holidays in Morocco, we enjoyed a wide variety of argan products that have been used there for centuries. My great-aunt taught me how to roast argan seeds to make culinary argan oil, a deliciously flavourful addition to various dishes.
From farmer to product
I also soon began to make cosmetic argan oil, a rich and nourishing product with many active ingredients that do wonders for your skin and hair. We buy argan seeds from farmers in Morocco, paying them directly so that they earn more money to support their families and pay their staff.
MOROCCAN ARGAN OIL
The miracle to share
Ever since I discovered the miraculous effect of argan oil and saw its positive effects on my friends and family, I’ve seen it as my mission to share the secret of this nourishing oil with as many people as possible. With Atlas Argan, I want to introduce you to the many ways you can use this authentically Moroccan product. Let me take you on a journey of discovery to natural beauty and health.
From Morocco to you
The argan oil you buy from us has come a long way. Its journey began in southwest Morocco with the argan tree. The fruit ripens on the tree and dries in the sun, after which the oil-rich seeds are extracted by hand. Then we start the time-consuming and meticulous process of peeling, roasting, grinding and filtering them. That’s the only way to get the best argan oil.
PURE ARGAN OIL
Surround yourself with delight
Treat yourself to all the delightful benefits that argan oil has to offer. Give your hair a healthy shine and bounce. Awaken your natural beauty with silky skin and nourish your body with essential, healthy fatty acids and antioxidants. This is my Moroccan family secret for you.
