Argan oil (also called Argon Oil, Argane Oil) is pressed from the nuts (or kernels, like a peach pit) of the Argan tree. The Argan tree (Argania spinosa) is well adapted to the drought conditions of southwest Morocco and has a deep root system which helps protect against soil erosion. Argan trees are thorny, their trunks gnarled, and up to 10 meters tall, they can live for up to 200 years.
