Organic Virgin Argan Oil
This is truly a luxurious, superior, multi-purpose treatment for your hair and skin. Unrefined (virgin), certified organic Moroccan argan oil, one of the world's most rare and potent beauty serums, is rich in nutrients, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids. A non-greasy, fast absorbing oil, it offers better protection for skin and hair than any other oil on the planet. It's known not only for its anti-aging properties, but also for its ability to fight acne, heal blemishes, and even out skin tone.
This invaluable oil will repair and reinforce your hair while protecting it from environmental damage caused by weather, sun, and heat from blow dryers and hair irons. Celebrities call argan oil "liquid gold" and pay exorbitant prices to purchase it from high end spas and salons.
Argan oil has multiple uses:
- Thermal heat protectant for hair: put 2-4 drops in the palm of your hand and massage into damp hair after showering. Your hair will feel silky soft after blow-drying.
- Deep conditioner: wet hair with hot water, message a small amount into the scalp and down the shaft of the hair, wrap with a towel and let it sit for 15 minutes. Wash hair as usual. Argan oil helps with dandruff and other dry scalp symptoms.
- Facial moisturizer: apply a few drops to your delicate facial tissue and around your eyes and watch your skin soak it up and start glowing.
- Cuticle and nail repair serum: apply a drop to cuticles and nails at night and say good bye to cut, sore finger tips. Argan oil will strengthen and nourish your nails too.
- Expectant mothers: apply argan oil to your tummy to help prevent and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Our argan oil is thick and undiluted. We carry the more expensive, unrefined, cold pressed, undeodorized version which has all of the good stuff for your skin and hair still intact. No chemical processing involved. Because it has a slight odor, we add the tiniest amount of real vanilla absolute* to give it a light, warm, lovely scent. I use argan oil every morning on my face and 1-2 drops in my damp hair after every shower. I adore how it makes my skin and hair feel and smell.
This product is packaged in a 2 ounce amber glass bottle with a smooth treatment pump.
Try an 8 ml sample size HERE.
Ingredients: pure, unadulterated, cold pressed, undeodorized, virgin, organic argania spinosa (argan oil) and vanilla absolute.
*Vanilla absolute is a highly concentrated form of pure essence from the vanilla bean. It is not the extract that you use in cooking (there is no alcohol), and it is not the cheap fragrance oil that you find in most scented beauty products (nor does it smell the same - this is the real deal!)
PLEASE NOTE: our labels say "expeller pressed" but this was a mistake in labeling. Unfortunately we ordered a bazillion labels, and they are expensive. The argan oil is cold pressed, not expeller pressed. Rock on.

I got this as a sample and have fallen in love! I had used another organic brand that did not do so well and it turns out it was because it was expeller pressed. I was amazed at the difference in products. The scent in this is wonderful. I don't normally like vanilla but the vanilla absolute is quite nice. Also, as someone who suffers from acne and rosacea this is not at all irritating which is a must in a product for me. I just ordered a full sized bottle!

I had been using a different brand of argan oil which cost a bit more and didn't smell nearly as nice. Very pleasant scent.

Use this product on my face and it's easily absorbed, not greasy, and leaves the skin smooth. Does not irritate my rosacea.
Love this stuff!

I have acne-prone combination skin that tends to get very dry, especially in the winter. When I read about the lovely healing properties of argan oil, I knew I had to try it and ordered a sample. After using my sample for a week (and still more than half left since a little goes a long way), I ordered a full bottle! This stuff is a miracle! It absorbs well, and I'm noticing that my acne has been healing and any breakouts aren't quite as severe or frequent. As a result, I haven't been needing foundation as much. I use this once in the morning on my whole face and under-eye area. My skin looks healthy, and I hope that I'll continue to see improvement with the combination of this and the natural face soaps. I've struggled with acne my whole life, so this really is incredible. Thank you!

I have used this on my face and hair. Helps so much with extra dry spots and blemishes. Just a tiny bit goes very far.
Posted by Leah on 4th Mar 2015
I have been using the Aragn oil since the end of December. It is now the beginning of March with the dry winter air, I rarely have to use any other moisturizer on my face! I would love to see ANVS do a lotion to accompany this for those few days where something extra is needed!!! Thank you AVNS!!!
Great for face and hair!
Posted by Sherry on 1st Mar 2015
I love the results I'm seeing after using this oil for the past two months on my face and hair. I rub in a little of the oil on my face after washing it each night. I've not been able to use the oil on my hair after shampooing because it leaves it a little oily-looking no matter how little I use. But I run some through my dry hair at night and my morning shampoos are not so drying now. My hair is looking very shiny and healthy.
I wish I liked the scent, but I just can't get used to it. (That's the reason for only 4 stars.) I added lavender essential oil, but it doesn't cover the scent of the argan oil. I guess I'll just have to put up with the smell, because I love the results of the oil.

I have been using this product for 2 weeks. Absolutely love it! It goes on smooth and is not heavy or greasy. It has replaced my old moisturizer. I use it on my face and hair everyday. I place 2 squirts in the palm of my hand, apply to my face and finish rubbing my hands through my hair.

I am absolutely addicted to everything AV. I have sensitive/oily/acne skin that can also get dry and itchy in the winter. I wear this as a facial moisturizer at night and have nice soft skin in the morning. Have been using it for two weeks now, and have not noticed any breakouts from this. I like the smell, it's not too strong. I have really wanted it to work in my hair in the place of leave-in conditioner, but one pump still makes my hair oily. I'm sure I'll find the right balance soon though. Great product!
Great for curly hair!
Posted by Sharon on 22nd Nov 2014
I use this on my naturally curly hair after a shower and in the morning. It doesn't leave it greasy like others oils. It helps with frizz better than any product I have ever used.
Posted by Jennie on 20th Nov 2014
I use the moroccan argan oil on a regular basis. After a shower I mix it w/my regular lotion and slather my feet, legs and arms with it. Keeps my feet, elbows and the backs of arms so soft and smooth.
nothing touches my face but AV...except my hubs
Posted by Cindy on 25th Oct 2014
Apple Valley products are a treat IN the shower and AFTER.....what's not to luv????????
Love this stuff!!
Posted by Amy O. on 23rd Oct 2014
I have only used the oil on my face and neck, but I LOVE this stuff! It does not smell good when being put on, but it has seemed to make my face more youthful looking.
Can't do without Argan Oil for my hair!
Posted by Sara K on 17th Sep 2014
As I age (I'm in my 40s now) my hair is starting to get a little wiry and dull. This Argan Oil really works magic on my hair! All I need is one pump rubbed between my palms and then delicately spread around my hair (especially around the crown of my head) and my hair looks more healthy, shiny, and youthful. I can't do without my Argan Oil!
Happiness in a bottle
Posted by Unknown on 19th Jul 2014
I just love this oil, it has a great light scent and a great light feel. I apply it after the shower and before I go to bed. It has really helped with making my makeup no so dry. I love it already!!!
I feel prettier already
Posted by Sarah Ochoa on 24th Jun 2014
This oil is fantastic! I was just complaining that my makeup was looking a little flaky lately, but after using this my skin stays soft and supple all day. It doesn't have an oily feel, and my makeup goes on smooth. As a matter of fact, after using the antioxidant face bar and this, I can go without makeup and have a beautiful glow. Only bad side, I don't care much for the scent, it's not pleasant, but fades away after a bit.
Posted by Unknown on 13th Jun 2014
I enjoy using this as a facial moisturizer - it leaves my skin soft without being greasy!
Perfect for Sensitive Skin!!!
Posted by Amanda on 11th Apr 2014
I've always had a hard time keeping my face moisturized. It's reacted poorly to the lotions I've tried over the years. This is the first product I've used that makes my skin feel naturally nourished and healthy. I have also had fewer blemishes since I started using this Organic Argan Oil about a month ago. I'm so glad I tried this product! Thank you Apple Valley Natural Soap. I'll be ordering again when I run out!
A Great Oil
Posted by Sarah L on 5th Mar 2014
I was really nervous about using this product, as my skin is pretty oily, but I love all their products so wanted to try it. After a few minutes, it really soaks in, and doesn't feel greasy at all. I love this product, and am so glad I tried it!
Posted by Karen on 3rd Mar 2014
This is my new favorite product! I use it as a facial moisturizer and also apply to wet hair after shampooing. I will never go without it! It works better that my expensive moisturizer, and my naturally curly hair is no longer frizzy. ;-) The scent is also beautiful, and the price is incredible!
Will never, ever be without this product
Posted by Rachel Bennett on 15th Feb 2014
Wow. It's like silk and a bottle. I promise I will never ever be without this product. Just amazing, completely amazing Apple Valley!
Posted by sandy gruhlke on 6th Feb 2014
I actually threw away 5 bottles of creams and lotions (which I have used for 30 years and sold for 10) and replaced them ALL with this oil. Dark circles, puffy eyes, bags under eyes, wrinkles, age spots, you name it! Pair it with the Antioxidant Beauty Bar for normal to oily skin or the Green Tea and Nettles for less oily
skin and you are good to go with or without makeup.
I can finally love my hair!
Posted by Unknown on 4th Feb 2014
I have always had hair that wasn't quite curly, or straight, or anything. Just there. With frizz. This oil is amazing. My hair actually looks fantastic. Gorgeous curls, just a rub in and shake head. Neat straight coif, comb through. Not oily, not clumpy, doesn't look wet all day. FANTASTIC! Thank you for finally making me happy with my own hair.
Organic Argan Oil
Posted by Sarah H. on 12th Jan 2014
I am one of those people who loves argan oil, and I adore Apple Valley's argan oil. I have tried a few different qualities of argan oil, and Apple Valley's is one of the best I have tried. Argan oil does have a unique smell, so I love that Apple Valley adds vanilla absolute. I can still smell the argan oil, but the vanilla smell is quite lovely. And no, if you are wondering, they never compensated me in any way to tell you how much I love their products. :)
Best. Oil. Ever.
Posted by Grace on 10th Jan 2014
I adore this argan oil. I love the fact that it is so pure (organic & virgin), it is really is a luxurious oil.. I have been using this as my only face moisturizer morning & night and it works wonderfully for keeping my skin hydrated during these winter months. I also use it to tame the hair frizzes and as a cuticle oil. I don't know if it's just me, but I am unable to detect the vanilla scent in this, would love it if it were a bit more prominent. That being said, I would absolutely purchase this again and if you haven't tried argan oil before, you are in for a real treat!
My skin loves it!
Posted by Unknown on 3rd Dec 2013
I have dry skin, so it's just what the Doctor ordered. I am also using it on my baby bump. ;-)
Great for ends of hair
Posted by AM on 29th Nov 2013
I've primarily used this for my hair. I like this much better than the jojoba for hair as I feel like it is less visible in your hair if you accidently put a bit too much on! Jojoba is great too though, I use both :)
Posted by Lindsey on 12th Oct 2013
I've been using this as a daily facial, hair, and hand moisturizer. It makes my hair and skin feel super soft and doesn't leave a greasy feeling! I actually had someone tell me that my hands look really soft the other day! My hands usually get really dry, especially because I work in the medical field and have to constantly wash them. Since using this along with the Creamy butter lotion bar my hands feel soft and smooth! I'm excited to have these products for the winter because my hands usually get so painfully dry.
Helps a tired mom not look so ragged!
Posted by Sara Anderson on 10th Oct 2013
I bought this on a whim, as I have oily skin and have some other products I like. I LOVE this oil. It smells DELICIOUS, goes on smooth and soaks right in. I really feel like my face looked more rested and younger after just a week or so of using it! I use it on my face and neck and backs of my hands and cuticles. A little goes a long way. I am looking forward to using it this winter, as I am finally starting to use a moisturizer daily - as my skin ages it is getting a little drier. I am very pleased with this!
It's great but...
Posted by Alyssa on 2nd Aug 2013
This product works just as well as some of the over priced, higher end Argan Oils. Love the way it soaks into the skin and brightens it! However, I'm really not too fond of the scent at all, and i'm a Vanilla girl! (It honestly doesn't smell like Vanilla in my opinion.) But overall, it's a great product. I just can't give it 5 stars until it has a different scent...bleh
Posted by Twila on 29th Jul 2013
I use the facial soap and Argan Oil. My face looks so much better. I am turning 51 in August and my wrinkles are looking much softer and not as define. I love it. The product is so easy to use.
Skin feels great!
Posted by Elaine Haynes on 23rd Jul 2013
I bought a smaller version of this oil at first and I used every drop. My face feels so smooth and the oil does not leave a heavy residue. I even use a little on the ends of my hair. I have now purchased a larger size and will buy again.
Posted by Unknown on 20th Jul 2013
It amazes me how it moisturizes my skin but also leaves it super soft too!
Easy, organic moisturizer
Posted by Ambria on 25th Apr 2013
My face loves this argan oil. I rub just the tiniest bit in between my hands and then pat all over my face at night. The following morning, my skin is soft and glowing. It's a little pricey, but so are non-organic fancy moisturizers. Worth it!
Posted by Cindy on 26th Mar 2013
I use this as a Facial moisturizer. I love the way it makes my skin feel!
Posted by Bethany on 12th Mar 2013
I've been using the argan oil just for a couple weeks, and my face is no longer dry and flaky. My skin also feels a lot softer.
Posted by Elena on 11th Mar 2013
I recently purchased three items from Apple Valley and this is, by far, my favorite. The oil is so fine, there is no residue left on the skin so I don't have to worry about staining my clothing. I use it for my face, neck and damp hair. In fact, I haven't used moisturizer since. My skin feels so soft and smoothed out. Even my hands seem more plump and youthful (at first, I thought I was imagining it!). The only thing I don't care for is the smell which isn't very pleasing, however, it does seem to fade away quickly. Despite that, I'll be purchasing this again -- and soon. I only wish it came in a 4 ounce bottle.
Posted by Joan-Marie on 9th Mar 2013
I love this oil. After using it every day for a little over a week, I have noticed that the lines around my eyes have almost gone away. My skin is nice and soft without being oily. Great product!
skeptical at first
Posted by Tammy on 21st Jan 2013
My friend recommended this oil and I have to be honest I was not sure. Thought I would splurge and try it and oh my goodness am I glad I did. I feel like I have given my face a new lease on life using this for a week. Just one pump and it is enough for my face. I was skeptical with the oil texture but as I'm putting it on my face the oil is absorbed and even though it feels like there is still oil on my hands, they are dry. I love this oil!
Posted by Molly on 20th Jan 2013
I have been using this on my face and hair for a couple months now and I absolutely LOVE it. The very first day I could tell a difference in the way my skin looked and felt, and I use it every day on my face. I am also putting a few drops in my hair after washing and it makes my hair silky and soft. A few drops will do it, so it lasts a long time, too.
Posted by Barb on 16th Dec 2012
I had done some reading about Argan Oil and had been really wanting to try it. I am thoroughly pleased with my purchase. The price was right, the service was awesome (three days and I had all that I ordered), the oil is everything I expected it to be. My son even uses it to keep his acne at bay, and his skin is looking so much better.
Posted by Unknown on 15th Dec 2012
I absolutely love this product. Being an older woman, my skin is dry. Since I am alternating between this product and the Jojoba oil my skin is dewy soft and appears less wrinkled. Thank you so much!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product!!!!!
Posted by Unknown on 3rd Dec 2012
I LOVE this oil!! My skin and hair loves it! It's the only moisturizer I use on my face now (I live in a dry climate). It's not greasy and is quickly absorbed into my skin and hair and feels like silk. The scent is light and lovely. I wished it came in a 4 oz bottle! :-) The 2 oz bottle will last me a while though. I'm so glad i went for the larger bottle instead of the smaler one. I use it daily and my bottle is still almost 90% full. Thank you for another quality product!!' Love the pump bottle. :-)
Not All Argan Oils Are Created Equal!
Posted by (Ms.) Dale S. on 20th Nov 2012
Apple Valley has the best organic argan oil currently available on the market. I've tried my share! Apple Valley offers an oil of substance - some out there are thin, even runny. Their oil absorbs almost instantly into the skin and gives a smoothed texture and youthful appearance. I am in my 60s, but the skin on my face now looks firmer! I use this magical oil from head to foot (hair, face, body - decollete!, hands and nails, feet). I also bought some for my mother, who is in her 80s, and she loves it! The pump bottle is super efficient, allowing you to pump out as much as you need. Although at first, it seemed a kind of luxury, I think it may be a must.
Get the Larger size!
Posted by Stephanie on 17th Nov 2012
I hesitated purchasing the larger size bottle for fear I wouldn't like it. But for a few dollars more, I figured it would be best to get the bigger bottle. I'm so glad I did! With the change of season from summer to winter, the air is more dry, causing my skin to be dry as well. I love this moisturizer! It feels like satin and smells wonderful! I'm so happy I went with the bigger bottle!
Posted by Unknown on 15th Nov 2012
I just started using the Argan Oil and so far it is great. I used it on my face after cleansing and I only needed a tiny bit.
Posted by Unknown on 13th Nov 2012
This oil is amazing...and leaves facial skin soft & smooth. Doesn't feel greasy in the short or longer term! My husband & myself are enjoying this super-easy moisturizer. And, a little goes a long way so it lasts quite a while. :)
Perfect facial moisturizer for combination skin
Posted by Melinda on 3rd Nov 2012
I bought this to replace my facial moisturizer, and I love it! My skin is prone to be a bit on the oily side, but also gets dry, irritated and pimply if I use cleansers that are too harsh. I've been using this with a gentle facial wash and it's just what I needed. Very natural, no ickies, but it has helped even out my skin tone and keep it fairly clear.
New Facial Moisturizer
Posted by Sue on 22nd Aug 2012
I love this product....it works on my dry skin much
better than the lotion I've used for the past 20 yrs
or more. I just reordered it and was glad to see
the applicator for the bottle is different...that was
the only thing I didn't care for on my last purchase.
Posted by Sue MI on 16th Aug 2012
Love this oil....the smell is not overwhelming and it makes my skin glow immediately but then lasts too.
One suggestion....the applicator that I received pours out the sides which causes me to lose some of it:(
Apple Valley Natural Soap Response: Keep the bottle in an upright position when pumping out the product. If you tip it to the side while you are pumping, the product will go up into the walls of the pumping mechanism, and the next time you go to pump it out, that will seep out. By holding the bottle in an upright position while pumping, you will avoid that issue! : )
