Argan oil is derived from the nut of the Argan tree fruit, which is grown in the northern part of Africa, mostly in Morocco. Similarly to other famous plant cultures from the Mediterranean area, like olive trees, an Argan tree has a very long life span, and is regularly able to reach an age of 200 years. At the same time, the tree begins to bear fruit several decades after it has had been planted.
