Zweena Argan Oil – Our Signature Ingredient

Ripening argan fruit

Argan oil is a rich source of antioxidants and Vitamins E, A, and F, containing 80 percent unsaturated essential fatty acids including Omega 6 and Omega 9. Referred to as “liquid gold,” organic argan oil is produced from the kernels of the rare and ancient Moroccan argan tree. It has been valued for its abundant cosmetic and medicinal substances for centuries by the Moroccan people. Many consider argan oil a “superfood” for the skin due to its healing, moisturizing, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties.

To slow down early signs of aging, the anti-oxidants in argan oil fight free radicals thereby protecting the skin from harmful environmental toxins. It also contains squalene, phenolic oils and phytosterol compounds which support healthy skin and hair. The impressive list of essential fatty acids include: oleic – 42.8% (omega 9); linoleic – 36.8% (omega 6); palmitic – 12.0%; stearic – 6.0%.

All Zweena elixirs have a high concentration of organic argan oil boosted by essential beauty oils made from fruit, vegetables, nuts and flowers. Argan is a dry oil that absorbs quickly and will not clog pores. Here are the benefits of argan oil for you skin, hair and body.

 

How Zweena Argan Oil is Made: 

Indigenous to Morocco, the argan tree produces argan fruit which is gathered after ripening and laid in the sun to dry. The organic argan nuts are then hand-cracked by local Berber women in fair-trade cooperatives. To preserve the high grade “virtue” of Zweena Pure Argan Oil, the oil is first cold-pressed from the raw argan kernels.

Argan oil is very precious and takes many hours of physical work for the Berber women to produce. In the cooperative, it takes three days and sixteen pounds of argan nuts for one woman to make one liter of Zweena Pure Argan Oil.

We, at Zweena Body Care, regularly visit with the Berber women in Morocco to observe their traditional techniques and feel honored to help them with each purchase of argan oil. These women now have the opportunity to provide for their families and receive an education.
