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.

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.

Don't choose another expensive brand. This is all you need!
I have tried the other expensive brands with all the hype. This is BY FAR the best. And so affordable. I use directly on my face for extra nourishment, especially in summer months. I also use on the ends of my hair.
My go to moisturizer . Love the quality , bottle , price and mostly that I know I'm supporting the community making these . Purchased multiple times already for myself and family .
Love this stuff
Fantastic product for curly hair. Definitely not cheap, but 100% pure Argan Oil is much better than lower-priced blends that contain a bunch of fillers and things that weigh your hair down.
I initially purchased this product online (Walgreens-buy2get1free). Within the first few, 2-3, uses i was extremely impressed. Daughter and I have extremely dry hair. We noticed a difference right away. Within 30 days (a bottle later) we notice the growth and decreased shedding and breakage. So needless to say we were hooked. Once down to our last bottle i decide to invest in the line and could not be happier. Great products. It absorbs nicely and the moisturizing affects are pretty miraculous. No joke. 😐... Serious face. Id like to also add my nails have been so ridiculously strong and break way less. I know this is getting lengthy, but yall need to know this. I did not initially notice the nails. What usually happens is every few days or so i have to file them down from breaking, splitting, hanging, or whatever. It was maybe a few weeks in and i hit my finger on the door and the nail didnt crack. Strange right? Yeah. So then i noticed how long it had been since the big file down and how much my nails had grown. We also have started using the shea butter, Tamanu oil, and the eygptian oil for various reason. To sum it up, your products are the business. Thank you Shea Terra.
Argan oil :)
I have been using this product for a while now and I absolutely love it. I love knowing that it's organic and my skin is getting so many benefits from the pure oils and vitamins. It feels smooth on the skin and it's just a great product for skin or hair.

This is the only Argan oil I will use! 100% pure, organic, cold pressed. I use this from head to toe, seriously. Great as a light oil for my hair, a tiny amount on my face at night as a beauty treatment, on my cuticles so they don't get that winter harshness, on my heels to keep them silky smooth. Love this!

Best Hair Product!
I love this oil! I use 3-4 drops rubbed into my hands and then through my hair to soften the texture and keep it from frizzing.
I love the product. The smell of the oil reminds me of Kalamata olives, and it takes a while to get used to, but it does absorb nicely, and the smell does go away. I have used many high-end moisturizing brands over the years, to which I developed allergic reactions due to the myriad of unrecognizable ingredients they contain. I have been using the Argan oil for two weeks, on my face at first, and then on my arms and legs, and honestly my skin has not felt this completely moisturized and balanced in a long time. I highly recommend this product.
I'm on my second bottle of this. I add it to my body lotion as an extra moisture boost. I use it straight on my hands (including nails and cuticles). I absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a greasy feeling. It's also the best price I've been able to find.
from Tyler, TX.
Absolutey in love with this product. Makes my skin softer and helps with acne. If you ever get a blemish rub this on and its gone the next day. I try to remember to put it on everynight because when I do theres a noticeable difference in my skin. Also great for my hair. I always have a bottle and this company provides 100% pure. Worth the money! Fast shipping. this stuff is like gold to me.

Now this is great Argan Oil!
I am incredibly impressed with this product! This oil leaves your skin nourished without any oily residue. Best Argan I have tried! It smells a little strange at first,to some people, but I would say that is because it is the real deal in my opinion. The mild scent does not last long once it absorbs...and it absorbs very quickly. This is my first product try with Sheaterra, and I will definitely be looking and ordering here again!!!
from Indiana, USA.
I love to use this on my body and a drop or two to my scalp before drying my hair. It does not leave an oily residue and is a great skin smoother.
Also am loving the moisture this adds to my face, without the oiliness. Soaks in quickly, and has made my face appear smoother, with the fine lines fading out. Am trying to get my husband to use it...his skin is so dry. Ordered supplies for my daughter, who has been struggling with skin conditions most of her life - hope she has as good results as I did! I'm a firm believer!!
I cant say enough wonderful things about this oil. It feels so silky soft and always leaves my hair and skin feeling luxurious.
This argan oil is actually bought for my wife, she absolutely loves it and have me renew her stock every time it goes short (so far), so i'm happy too; the only thing that offers a certain annoyance is having to pay the custom tax for it, other then that everything else is quite peachy.
from Toronto, Canada.
Great for all over body
I have been maintaining my psoriasis outbreak with this product. I Love this product and will buy again!!!
Love this oil!
My first time using this oil and i absolutely love it! (Love the nutty smell as well) I use it on my face and hair every night and it does not only keep my skin feeling super moisturised, it also cure the dermatitis condition i've been battling with for months as well. Introduced it to my mom and she's hooked too! By far, the best natural product i've ever used and definitely won't be stopping anytime soon!
Love this oil!
This is the best quality aran oil, and at an unbeatable price! Compare to Josie Maran's oil....you'll be pleasantly surprised.
I have been using this, and i love it to tears. Absorbs quick, easy to apply, nutty smell good, natural, I dnt want to go back to regular lotions, creams, and the best thing is that the price is good,with the discounts. Thank you. Shukran katir, helba shukran for your hard work. Dont raise the price.
