Argan oil comes from the fruit of the Argania spinosa, a small evergreen tree native to Morocco. The oil is slightly darker in color than olive oil, it has a distinctive roasted aroma and a characteristic hazelnut taste. It contains more than 80% of unsaturated fatty acids (up to 50% oleic, up to 40% linoleic and max. 0.3% linolenic), while among the saturates the major components are the palmintic (around 15%) and the stearic acid (max. 12%). Furthermore, it is rich in tocopherols, flavoniods, carotenoids and xanthophylls, sterols and triterpenes. These compounds have antioxidant properties which make this oil resistant to the processes of oxidization, which explains its long shelf-life.
