Pure Argan Oil
Hammam Secrets produces an extra virgin argan oil from the collected fruits of wild Argan trees located on the Atlantic coast and in the southwest of Morocco.
The fruits are carefully selected to avoid any animal smell, caused by goats that in their natural environment climb the Argan trees to eat and leave a pungent odor. The seed extraction is manual as has been done traditionally for centuries to preserve the intact seed. Then they are cold- pressed, the oil is decanted, filtered and filled in bottles. Only in this way we get a high quality oil, 100% natural and virgin, preserving antioxidants, all natural properties and the natural aroma of Argan oil. All industrial processes which heat the oil (refining, deodorization…) destroy all natural qualities.
Argan oil is very sensitive to heat and light
Prolonged exposure to heat and light oxidizes argan oil and, as a consequence, the natural components of this precious oil are destroyed.
How can you avoid it?
Hammam Secrets produces a clean Argan oil because we do not use any solvents, we do not refine or blend it with other oils. To preserve the oil from sunlight and heat, Hammam Secrets fills Argan oil in dark glass bottles to preserve all natural properties in perfect conditions and to avoid oxidation.
Hammam Secrets Argan oil contains no paraffin, parabens, petroleum derivates, artificial preservatives, synthetic dyes, artificial fragrances, petrochemicals or detergents. It has not been tested on animals.
We have all kinds of products made with argan oil, such as natural soaps, lip balms, face masks and many more.
The New York Tilmes described it as “The last miracle ingredient”. Not surprisingly is called “The liquid gold of Morocco”. Argan oil is composed in a 80% of unsaturated fatty acids. The most important are oleic and linoleic acids, present in 45% and 35% respectively. Argan oil is one of the richest oils in unsaturated fatty acids, much more than olive oil. The proportion of tocopherol is far superior to other oils. They are natural antioxidants and vitamin precursors. The antioxidant is a molecule capable of slowing or preventing the oxidation of other molecules caused by free radicals.
Argan oil also contains phytosterols, plyphenols, sterols and triterpene alcohols with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
