— Choosing the Best Argan Oil —
When choosing high-quality nut oil, first consider the product composition. No flavor, preservatives or water should be added. Choose 100% pure argan oil products.
Quality nut oil should have a mild aroma. Flavor may have been added if the smell is too strong. The fewer the nutrients, the weaker the scent of the oil.
The texture of the best argan oil is smooth and non-greasy, but not too watery. It should be light gold in color. A very light hue may indicate a mix of other oils; if it's dark brown, it may be roasted argan oil used for culinary purposes. Always choose argan oil extracted by cold-pressing, as high-temperature extraction destroys the nutrients of most nuts; the nutrients are what make nut oil beneficial to the skin.
