Within each of our products lies a powerful story — and an essential part of who we are includes getting to know the places our products come from, and the people who create them.

We’re proud to partner with organic women-run argan oil cooperatives…

We’re proud to say our organic, cold-pressed argan oil comes to you directly from the women-ledargan oil cooperatives of Tamanar, Morocco.

Women working in a women-led argan oil cooperative in Tamanar, Morocco.Our extended Florecopia family includes the many artisans, connoisseurs, and families whose paths cross with ours — and ultimately, yours — as the earth’s treasures make their way into your hands, becoming part of your self-care journey.

It’s in our DNA to bring you the world's highest quality products — and for us that means investing in our suppliers, co-creating alongside them, and learning more about who they are and what they value most.

One day, the women in an argan oil co-op in Morocco looked down and noticed their hands were softer and younger looking... after a day's work spent hand-cracking argan nuts. How was that possible?

They soon realized the argan oil could be used as a powerful treatment for radiant skin health and hair, and their new idea was born…

These powerful women are celebrated for their dedication to integrity that touches every part of what they do — from how they train and care for their team members, to the careful extraction methods of their treasured Argan oil, to their devotion to a healthy rainforest, and more.

When we learned about the deeply conscious work they were doing throughout Morocco, we couldn’t wait to be part of it.

The city of Tamanar built its first rural, women-run cooperative for organic Argan oil production in 1997. Since then, it’s grown steadily into a small-and-mighty network that employs and guarantees an income source to women from the neighboring villages.

A steady income has empowered these families to afford healthcare, invest in education for their children and literacy programs for adults, and more. The cooperatives’ production of organic Argan oil is supporting and financially changing the lives of an estimated 3 million people.

Wildcrafted Organic Argan Oil to Nourish Your Skin & Hair

Argan oil ingridents, all pure, organic, and vegan.As part of a larger sustainable development plan, these native Moroccan women call upon their ancestral know-how — deep knowledge and experience passed down for generations — to harvest the argan fruit using the most environmentally sound practices.

To these beauty pioneers, the word natural always means:

  • 100% organic
  • 100% pure
  • 100% unscented
  • Preservative-free
  • Vegan and cruelty-free

Our values align with theirs at every turn — their oil is never diluted or blended with other fragrances, oils, or toxins.

The oil’s powerful simplicity has remained exactly the same over the centuries — rich in essential nutrients, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds.

Meanwhile, these environmentally conscious women are constantly spreading the word about the Argan tree, raising awareness about the dangers of deforestation among the native population.

Central to their mission is replanting and protecting the endangered Argan trees forest — they see it as an essential step on the path to socioeconomic and environmental development, and each day they lead by example.

How to Bring Argan Oil Into Your Self-Care Routine

Brining argan oil into your hair care routineAll skin and hair types can benefit from the rich, moisturizing properties of pure argan oil — as you’ll discover, there are many powerful reasons it's been around for centuries.

For glowing skin, use argan oil to:

Add moisture. Argan oil provides a major boost of hydration to the skin, thanks to its high quantities of vitamin E. To help seal in hydration, he recommends applying a few drops of 100 percent pure argan oil to your daily moisturizer.

Brighten skin and fade dark spots. Argan oil’s natural vitamin E compounds can stop the production of excess pigment from melasma or scars.

Cleanse your face. Apply argan oil all over your face as a cleanser — and reduce clogged pores and acne along the way.

For soft-yet-strong, healthy hair, use argan oil as a:

  • Conditioner. Argan oil’s moisturizing properties make it a healing conditioner or mask for your hair. Argan oil’s molecules are smaller than other oils, so it’s easier to penetrate the hair cuticles — leaving your hair softer and more manageable with less tangles and dryness.
  • As a soothing salve for an itchy scalp. Take a few drops and gently massage into your scalp, stimulating the blood circulation.
  • Heat damage protectant. Argan oil’s vitamin E and fatty acids in argan oil actually protect the hair and scalp from heat damage caused by styling tools. To protect your hair while blow drying, straightening, or curling, Rivera recommends applying a couple of drops of plain argan oil to wet or dry hair before and after styling.

The superior quality of our argan oil comes from doing direct business with co-ops like these. We can confidently stand by our products and bring you the healing, profound results you’ve come to expect from us.

Our artisanal argan oil has been lovingly, patiently handcrafted at every step of the way.
