Argan oil (or Moroccan oil as it’s often called in Canada) is an oil made from the kernels of argan fruit, which grows on the thorny argan trees found in southwestern Morocco and in parts of western Algeria.
Goats love to eat argan fruit, which looks like a shrivelled, yellow apple. They love it so much that they’ll scamper 30-feet up off the ground just to munch on some of the bitter, fleshy pulp. These animals eat the fruit whole, including the inner nut, which their bodies can’t digest. The goats either spit out or defecate the nuts, which are then collected by oil harvesters, dried out, and cracked open.
