Are you worrying about the first signs of maturity in your skin?
Are you also a person who cares about the welfare of the Earth and Mother Nature?
Here you are going once again to discover a real nature treasure: Argan oil.
It comes for Morroco and brings a long endearing history.
• Short(ened) History of Argan oil
In the antiquity the whole area of North Africa was plenty of argan-tree. Nowadays it remains only a reduced area of approximately 28.000 hectares which was converted in a reserve of biosphere under UNESCO protection.
Over 3,500 years later, the women of Morocco are still regularly using this precious oil to their faces, bodies, nails, and even their hair, they apply it on their small children delicate skin… because they know what the rest of the world has just started to discover in the last 15 years:they still use old natural skin care recipes.
Argan oil is the result of a laborious manual process still very fruits a tree called Argania Spinosa. It proceeds from the arid and semi-arid regions of south-west of Morocco. Only certain aspects of argan oil production have been modernized to refine it and higher the quality of the oil: the ones related to removing impurities that would otherwise cause the oil to degrade and go rancid. The rest of the process it’s still being made today using the same traditional methods that date back to 1550 B.C. when the Phoenicians of Morocco are first recorded as using it as a beauty oil.
After the fruit kernels are sifted through for quality by the women then there are cold-press by machine to extract the precious golden oil. In some cases, Berber women extract the oil by hand grinding as well. However, the 100% Pure Golden Argan Oil comes only from the special cold-press machine; this is the way to extract the maximum amount of pure oil while ensuring that impurities don’t enter the oil to degrade it.
Just for a single liter of argan oil, it takes a single tree’s full season of fruit and over 2 days of manual labor… we have to recognize why it is so very precious: it is a gold treasure.
It is collected by hand and takes forty kilos of fruits to obtain one litre of oil, about sixteen hours of work.

• Community Benefits
I love this project and talking about it as well: support the women to emancipate the whole community and preserve the environment.
It is a simple but marvelous idea: it works for several years.
It is supported by the same government, The European Unionand other international organizations collaborating also with UNESCO in a perfect symbiosis. The social project created to support women and local communities are involved in a wide environment protection program.
Remember that Argania became a biosphere reserve.
It was created a daring plan to create jobs and empower Berber women over the whole community converting the argan oil production in real benefits for life.
There were created co-operatives providing women with an income, which many have used to fund education for themselves or their children. It has also provided them with a degree of autonomy in a traditionally male-dominated society and has helped many become more aware of their rights.
These Fair Trade Cooperatives empower rural women with future business development opportunities also: all around the production of argan-related products. This helps to prevent the migration of rural women and their families into the cities by making it economically viable for them to remain in their own communities.
The success of the argan co-operatives has also encouraged other producers of agricultural products to adopt this model.
* As well, these cooperatives, controlled and owned by the Berber women, work in partnership with UNESCO to support the preservation of the biosphere reserve, which protects the Argania Spinosa tree. A very important aspect related to the environment protection is reforestation promotion. So it makes sure this natural resource will be available as a source of income, food, and fuel for generations to come.
Furthermore maintaining the forest, these cooperatives are helping to slow the desertification of Africa, holding back the encroaching desert.
The Argan tree provides food, shelter and protection from desertification. The tree has deep roots which help prevent desert encroachment. The canopy of the argan tree also provides shade for other agricultural products and its leaves and fruit provide food for animals.
The argan tree also helps landscape stability, helping to prevent soil erosion, providing shade for pasture grasses and helping to replenish aquifers.

Knowledge, at Wprk!
A man in the Florida supermarket tries to buy half a head of lettuce.
The very young produce assistant tells him that they sell only whole heads of lettuce. The man persists and asks to see the manager. The boy says he’ll ask his manager about it.
Walking into the back room, the boy said to his manager, “Some asshole wants to buy half a head of lettuce.”
As he finished his sentence, he turned to find the man standingright behind him, so he added, “And this gentleman has kindly offered to buy the other half.”
The manager approved the deal, and the man went on his way.
Later the manager said to the boy, “I was impressed with the way you got yourself out of that situation earlier. We like people who think on their feet here. Where are you from, son?”
“Canada, sir,” the boy replied.
“Well, why did you leave Canada?” the manager asked.
The boy said, “Sir, there’s nothing but whores and hockey players up there.”
“Really?” said the manager. “My wife is from Canada.”
“No sh*t?” replied the boy. “Who’d she play for?”
