Where Old Tradition Meets Modern Technology

BeYouthful Argan Oil is produced by the Berber women working in South West Morocco. Our Argan oil comes straight from the Argan trees that naturally grow in that region. It is extracted from the kernels found inside the fruit of the Argan tree where these women in the cooperatives use an age-old traditional process paired with modern, world class cold-pressing machines to get only the best. To preserve its quality and prevent oxidation, BeYouthful Argan oil is then sealed in an amber glass bottle. This keeps it pure and fresh well after it reaches your doorstep.

Not only is our Argan Oil ethically sourced providing a good livelihood for these Berber women, but it is also not tested on animals, it is vegan friendly, and it is free from parabens, fragrances, and other additives as well.
