Okay, so, what exactly is argon oil and where does it come from?
Argon oil comes from the Moroccan Argon tree. This tree is special in that it is only found in North Africa. The oil is pressed and extracted from the nut found inside the fruit draping this Moroccan Argon tree.
Since this tree only grows in Morocco it has created a sweet economic boom in the country. While the oil may seem a bit expensive, imagine how many more jobs this one tree-breed has offered many Moroccan civilians.
Historically, the Moroccan Berber tribe was well known to have used this oil. Unsurprisingly, one characteristic this tribe is well known for is their amazingly silky smooth skin.
