Some more info:

– Argan oil for cosmetic use
Is obtained by pressing of argan raw almonds. The color of the resulting oil is clear and is used on the skin of the whole body, hair and nails. This oil is particularly appreciated for its renowned moisturizing and antioxidant properties and has been used with great success as a functional ingredient for cosmetics skincare and haircare.

– Argan oil for food use
To obtain Argan oil for food you need to toast the seeds in advance. The oil thus obtained has a darker color and smell roasted. It can be used as a condiment for bread, couscous and salads. In addition, by grinding toasted almonds and argan oil, the locals get Amlou, a thick brown paste with a consistency similar to peanut butter.
