Not for Eating, Folks...

Allegedly first discovered for use by the Phoenicians in 1550 B.C., Argan Oil has been an Eastern Hemisphere cosmetic staple for centuries. The fruit of the argan tree (Argania spinosa L.) is small, round, fleshy, and anchored by a hard “nut.” Each nut contains one to three small argan kernels, and workers must access these kernels in order to extract the oil. Most attempts to mechanize this process have been unsuccessful, so the fruit is typically peeled and cracked by hand.

Unlike other cosmetic oils (Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Coconut Oil, etc.), Argan Oil is noticeably silky, lightweight, and non-greasy; it absorbs quickly, and yet is still deeply moisturizing. Use it in place of face and/or body lotion. Smooth it into wet or dry hair to moisturize and tame frizz. Rub it onto dry, chapped hands and cuticles. This vitamin E and fatty acid-rich oil isn’t called “liquid gold” for nothing.

We’re selling each 1.7-fluid ounce bottle of Trader Joe’s Organic Argan Oil for $6.99. This comes to about $4 per ounce, which is an unheard of value – prices we’ve seen in other stores are at least $7 per ounce, and those versions are often non-organic, loaded with additives, and/or overwhelmed by added fragrance. You’ll find Trader Joe’s Organic Argan Oil in our health and beauty section.


Ingredients: Organic Argania Spinosa (argan) Kernel Oil.
