Kahina Argan Oil: How It’s Made
Did you know Kahina Argan Oil comes from the argan nut? Using two stones, Berber women working in cooperatives crack these argan nuts open to get to the fleshy interior. The fleshy interior is then cold-pressed to make our argan oil. The video above, shot by Kahina founder Katharine L’Heureux, shows this traditional process. The women often sing or talk while they crack the argan nuts. Other than a chance to gather together, the production of argan oil gives these women economic opportunities that they would not have had otherwise.
