Here we are, the 3 (4!) Arganeers, Mohamed, Chaima and Yassin!
We are so happy to welcome you to our blog, where we will regularly post news about us and our products.
You will be able to read (and learn) about everything that is going on in the world of argan and argan oil!
We’d like to let you in on all kinds of topics such as the history, the entire argan oil production process (from tree to bottle), and of course, you’ll regularly discover lots of useful and fun tips & tricks on all the ways you can use argan oil, and hopefully you’ll be enchanted by this magical oil, just like us.
As Arganeers, we have been using argan oil all our lives.
In our home, this oil always was always coming fresh from the region of Agadir.
Our mother used this oil to take care of our hair, so our hair was always shiny and healthy. We also use the oil for our skin care, or for our dry hands in winter for example. The only problem was when we ran out of argan oil…
If no one could bring us some bottles or send them to us from Morocco, we would have had to do a lot of searching in Belgium and the surrounding areas in order to hopefully find some argan oil, somewhere.
Even then, often the oil we could find was not of the quality we were used to, so we were forced to use more oil to achieve a similar effect. With argan oil, good quality is absolutely essential in order to get good results.
In order to solve our problem, and because the oil is so important to us, we decided together to bring top quality argan oil from Morocco to Belgium ourselves.
Since we are going to do this for us and this oil is so precious, why not share it with everyone?
That’s how we came up with the idea of selling our own argan oil.
After lots of brainstorming sessions and analyses, we started to make this plan a reality, step by step…
After three long years of hard work, the time has finally come.
We are extremely happy to finally welcome you to our Arganstore.
It was a long and arduous process, with a lot of travelling back and forth between Belgium and Morocco, innumerable visits to the argan groves of the cooperatives, with all the meticulous inspections that go along with that of course, eternal negotiations, countless lab tests, you name it…
We never dared to think that so much work is involved in the production of a quality oil that is 100% pure.
As Mark Twain once wrote:
“The greatest of all inventors. Accident”.
Had it not been for an acquaintance of our father, we would never have met Hafid.
Hafid is our fourth Arganeer. He’s one of the persons who also makes the Arganstore possible.
Hafid has lived in the Argan regions of Morocco for many years and knows them like the back of his hand.
Together with him, we’ve visited several cooperatives, and thanks to his experience and expertise, we’ve been able to find the perfect producer (you’ll discover more about this later, in one of our future blogposts, stay tuned!).
We are very happy and grateful that we can count on Hafid because that means that we always receive a fresh product of excellent quality, our labs in Belgium confirm it time and time again!
We’d like to thank you for reading our blogpost, and hope to see you come back to our website regularly.
On behalf of Arganstore, we would like to welcome you to our website and to the world of argan!
See you soon!
