     It is no coincidence that Moroccan argan oil has become the most sought after anti-aging product on the market. Pure argan oil extracted  from the argan fruit has been the Berber's beauty secret in Morocco for thousands of years. No other oil performs as well as Moroccan argan oil  at protecting the skin and reversing present signs of aging as argan which refuses to bear fruit anywhere other than the Sahara of Morocco.
     Argan oil is rich in vitamins A & E. It has a high plant squalene content similar to olive oil and is high in healing sterols. Non-clogging, non-greasy argan oil absorbs into skin upon contact. Amongst all of the oils tested over several years at Shea Terra Organics, argan oil appears to last on the skin the longest, offering a full day of moisture protection.
     Shea Terra Organics high quality, undiluted source of argan oil was hand selected by Tammie who traveled to Morocco to choose a women's group to partner with. Although Shea Terra Organics has been importing from a reliable source for over a decade, Tammie felt the need to benefit the women directly who are having the argan oil industry taken away from them by outside interests. 
     For thousands of years the production and sale of argan oil was in the control of the women. They make a delicious roasted version of argan oil as well as an unroasted cosmetic form. They sit laboriously for hours hand cracking each nut, stone grinding it into paste, and then kneading the dough until the argan oil can be hand squeezed out. Finally being recognized as a valuable anti-aging oil, companies from Germany to Japan to Italy have flown in to take over control of the argan oil from the women. They have now set up machines to replace the women's work, thus causing loss of income to hundreds of women. Shea Terra Organics' founder, Tammie Umbel chose a particular cooperative of women in Morocco who are still producing a very high quality argan oil by hand. This process also insures that the argan oil is produced at a much lower temperature than machines and no chemicals are introduced into the process. The nutty aroma of the argan oil is still present indicating its authenticity, pureness and 100% unaltered form for maximum skin care benefits.
Contains only: 100% pure argan oil
Your skin changes daily. Pollutants that it comes across, sun exposure level, your vitamin and mineral intake, the quality and amount of your water, and so on all affect and change your skin. Likewise, the skin oils that you use should change from time to time. What works for you one week might not work for you the next week. Plus, your skin benefits from the different nutrients that comes with changing up your oils. If one week your face feels a little oily, use a lighter oil and vice versa. 
Daily usage: Massage few drops into each of the five facial points. Lightly massage under eye.

Is your argan oil 100% pure?
 
Absolutely. We have been importing this oil directly from the women who make it for almost a decade.
 
How can you tell if argan oil is 100% pure?
 
We are well aware that there are companies that dilute argan oil. The oil is even diluted straight from sources inside Morocco. There is no absolute way of telling whether an oil is diluted or not. However, knowing the characteristics of argan oil helps. The oil should never be cloudy (it might be a little cloudy if it gets too cold). It should be golden in color, a little on the brown side but should not be clear or olive in color. It should have a distinct smell like soured milk mixed with almond. The odor is quite strong. It should not be greasy on the skin; it should absorb right in.
 
How can you sell your argan so inexpensive?
 
We buy this oil directly from a women's cooperative in Morocco. We do not pay middle men. But the real truth is that companies are ripping customers off with their artificially high argan oil prices. While the oil is one of our more costly oils to buy, it is not THAT costly. It takes a lot of argan nuts and a lot of labor to make a small bottle of argan oil, but again, the oil is not so expensive as to warrant prices of $40-$60 per two oz.
 
Years ago Shea Terra Organics crashed shea butter prices from over $100 a lb. to down to $4 a lb. Middle men were price gauging shea butter prices for a product that was extremely inexpensive straight out of Africa. Tammie felt these prices were unfair to consumers and did not benefit the African women who made the butter. They had plenty of supply, but because some greedy people tried to make huge profits off of their butter, demand for their butter was very low which meant that thousands of women were losing out on the opportunity to support their families. The same situation exists here with pure argan oil.
 
How does Tammie know that her argan oil is 100% pure?
 
Tammie visited several cooperatives in Morocco. She looked at methods of extraction and compared several qualities of cosmetic grade argan oil. She chose her supply group according to the quality of the oil and the commitment the cooperative had toward their members. The group she chose acted as generous hosts to Tammie and eleven of her children during their visit. And, unlike several of the other groups, they did not insist that she leave a tip.

Who Knew Oil Is Good For Your Face?
  Being a skincare newbie, I certainly did not. I have bought several products from Shea Terra, and this one is by far my favorite. I recently discovered my skin to be dry, and when I apply this oil at night, my skin seems to soak it up immediately and thank me graciously for it. It sounds silly, but it's almost as if my face wants it. And, contrary to my wariness, it hasn't caused any type of break outs for me so far. Also, I'm Asian with sensitive skin, so what the heck? I am in my early thirties so I can't say much about sagging, and it's been too short of a time to judge fully with wrinkles but I do notice that my smile line (I have one, on my left side) has become less noticeable. I'm using quite a lot of products right now but I think it's safe to say that this oil is an attribute! One thing I'll suggest is to use it at night, as opposed to the morning, as it does give your face an overall sheen.

Worth every penny
  I love this company, I loved following their facebook page and seeing where they sourced their oils. I feel like I'm buying something without a bunch of fillers or other oils. My boyfriend and I religiously use this oil. I'll blend a drop in with my daily moisturizer, and it works great!
