ArganOilShop.com Brings Argan Oil to US Market and Moroccan Women Reap Benefits from Its High Demand
HICKSVILLE, N.Y., Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Women who want to look good and do good can accomplish both tasks by buying 100 percent pure Argan Oil from ArganOilShop.com as proceeds help to improve the lives of women in poor regions of Morocco.
“ArganOilShop.com has brought to the west the liquid gold of Morocco which is Argan oil. When women buy our brand, they know they will be helping improve the lives of women who want better lives for their families,” said Hicham Ben Youssef of ArganOilShop.com. “Consumers in the United States can now use this precious 100% natural cosmetic product that effectively promotes beautiful skin, hair and nails and they will know that the people who produced the oil can buy food and send their children to school.”
The product has an EcoCert certificate, which states that the oil is pure and biological produced.
“The demand for Argan oil is continuing to rise,” he said. The oil has been well received because of its beauty and anti-aging benefits.”
The argan trees have thrived in the Moroccan mountains for centuries and for thousands of years, the Berber tribe of Morocco has been extracting oil from the argan nuts for cosmetic, culinary and medicinal purposes. Today the oil is considered a very precious resource and in poor rural areas of Morocco, this oil has given many families a chance for a better life.
“Although the work of producing this oil is time consuming, many women are happy to spend their time doing the labor needed to produce this oil. The oil’s market value has reached $40 per liter which ten years ago was only at about $4 per liter,” he said.
“All the argan oil products we sell are produced by a woman’s cooperative in Morocco,” he said. “We at ArganOilShop.com are quite happy to think that not only are we giving consumers a product that is absolutely effective in promoting beautiful skin, hair and nails but we are also helping dreams halfway across the globe come true. So to our consumers, every time you buy a bottle of argan oil from ArganOilShop.com, you are helping a mother’s or a child’s dream somewhere in Morocco become more of a possibility.”
The argan oil industry has also inspired other women and many other people across Morocco to make and sell their own local products including olive oil, dates and textiles. This is all because of the success of argan oil cooperatives, he said.
