One of the world's most rare and potent beauty serums, this unrefined (virgin), certified organic, Moroccan argan oil is rich in nutrients, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids. As a non-greasy, fast absorbing oil, it offers better protection for skin and hair than any other oil on the planet. Argan oil is high in something called oleic acid and even though it’s still considered a “dry” oil, meaning it won’t leave an oily residue and will absorb quickly, it’s an oil which will keep the skin moisturized, help battle the loss of elasticity and reduce inflammation. Oleic acid adds a richness to oils, making argan oil an excellent deep moisturizer. It penetrates easily and deeply into the skin’s surface, replenishing lost moisture that naturally comes with age, it also helps the moisture from evaporating.
Argan oil's benefits for skin are many, here are the highlights:
- Enriched with antioxidants it protects skin from sun damage and helps with skin repair from sun exposure.
- A 0 on the comedogenic scale, this is a potent beauty serum, perfect for delicate or sensitive skin.
- Moistures skin, packed with vitamin E and fatty acids it hydrates, nourishes and moisturizes effectively and replenishes skin cells. Do you have mature skin? Here's 3 important skincare tips!
- Prevents and reduces stretch marks as it helps improve skin elasticity.
- Heals infections with it's anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Speeding up the healing process of wounds, infections and burns is a wonderful benefit of this amazing oil.
- Treats acne, heals blemishes and even's out skin tone.
This invaluable organic argan oil will also 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. Organic argan oil is truly a luxurious, superior, multi-purpose treatment for your hair and skin.
Moroccan Argan oil has multiple uses for hair and body:
- 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. Check out our BLOG for more information about this and amazing results you can see!
- Deep conditioner: wet hair with hot water, massage 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. Alternatively, apply to dry hair before going to bed at night. Wrap in a towel and wash in the morning for soft, silky locks. Argan oil helps with dandruff and other dry scalp symptoms.
- Makeup remover: put a couple of drops on a cotton ball and and gently remove eye makeup. Leaves the delicate skin around your eyes moisturized.
- 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.
- Beard oil: bearded people, you know what I'm sayin'. Or if you want something designed specifically for facial hair, check out our Men's Nourishing Beard Oil.
- 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.

Lightweight, silky and amazing for hydrating skin and hair
The first time I heard about using oil on your face I thought it was silly. I have an oily complexion, prone to outbreaks. I was concerned using an oil on my face. I am glad I tried it! I barely break out and it is not greasy. My face absorbs the oil and it feels soft, not oily. I also use it on my elbows and my heels. Will never use lotion or even an anti aging cream.
This oil was thick, but not uncomfortable. Great for those with dry skin.
I bought this to use for make up remover. It works great for your face. I have also used it for my hair. I have been mixing this with castor oil and it’s doing amazing things for my hair.
I want to love this but I can't get past the vile smell. I decanted some and added geranium oil to it which helped. I have used it on my hair ends and face. Both worked fine. I have no idea if that compromises the effectiveness of the oil. I wish I had gone for a sample bottle instead of full size. I had no idea argan oil could smell this awful. I'd like to say how well it works, but I'm so put off I will probably pitch it. There was disclosure prior to purchase about the natural smell but I'm realizing I had no idea what that was until now. It certainly isn't the fragrant, nutty aroma that the commercial hair product manufacturers had me believe. It's not skunk, but it's definitely wet cat in a medieval castle. Some folks might like that - Me, not so much!
Leaves my hair soft without weighing it down. It also helps control frizz.
I ordered this oil as an extra treat for myself. I read many reviews before placing my order. I'm using this oil for my hair. I only wash my hair every three - four days and use two pumps after I've washed my hair. I do allow my hair to dry a tad, wrapped in a towel, before adding it. Simply rub it between my hands and spread though my hair, with focus being from the middle to the roots. It offers a wonderful shine and softness and a little bit goes a long way. I'm not a fan of the smell, to me it smells a tad sour. However, I know this is because it's a pure oil and prefer a tiny bit of scent that I don't love over something that isn't pure. Plus, the scent dissipates quickly. All thumbs up!!
I had a bottle of Argan oil that I used previously and It was ok, but I had nothing to compare it to. After using Apple Valley Argan oil I would guess the other is not pure. Anyway, I get 1-2 pumps and add a drop of lavender essential oil to it and dab it on my face especially under eyes. The oil has a thicker consistency but does not feel greasy. Also it melts into my skin quickly and leaves it looking so nice. Whatever is remaining on my fingers I gently swipe into my fine hair and is lays nice with no flyaways and it does not cause it to get greasy at all. I have also rubbed this on my knees and elbows and it is amazing for smoothing and moisturizing skin.
I've used this product as a facial oil for less than a year. The oil is light and very effective. A number of age spots have disappeared and my skin is very soft.
I have been using this oil for a few weeks and this oil is truly amazing. I have very oily skin and after using my skin is less oily and so soft. I have a few smiles lines on my face and they are becoming less noticeable. I also use this on my cuticles and my nails will grow so fast in about a week after applying this.
I generally do not use anything on my face except water these days and do not have problem skin at all. I figured though that a single ingredient oil might be nice to moisturise my skin and wow! It makes my skin so soft. It doesn't have the best smell, but I use it before bed and don't notice it so much after a few minutes. I also use a drop in my hair after washing (with delightful soap bars, of course!) and it makes my hair super soft too. My daughter had a little spot on her chin right before school picture day and we dabbed some on and it was gone in the morning. I am not to into the idea of having various beauty products cluttering up my bathroom, but this one is definitely worth it. One little drop goes a long way, so the bottle will last a while.
I've been using this product for awhile--before the addition of sandalwood--and really liked it. The scent of sandal-wood has taken some getting used to, but it's still a great product. I use it as my face moisturizer.
I LOVE this stuff!!!! It's all I use on my face and I use it in my hair. Love, love, love it!!!
I LOVE this oil and am addicted to it!! I've already ordered another bottle, so as never to run out!
With a recent purchase I was given a sample of the Organic Argan Oil. After the first use, I was blown away! I used one drop rubbed in my hands and gently massaged into my face. The redness on my cheeks disappeared, my slight wrinkles softened and I looked refreshed! I now use the argan oil to remove eye makeup, to smooth my hair, bedtime moisturizer and on any thing that needs it. My pores are prone to clog and I have never had a problem with this lovely oil. It's like my secret beauty weapon ;)
I actually bought this product on an impulse after coming to this site to buy something else. I had been using an argan/jojoba oil serum from another company that I wasn't entirely pleased with. This one seems so much lighter and smells amazing. My husband told me I smell yummy. I have acne prone skin, and this oil really helps balance things out. I mostly use it at night and I've noticed red acne spots are much lighter and soothed in the morning. This is my new go to moisturizer.
I ordered a sample of this argan oil a couple of weeks ago and it smelled amazing. I loved the vanilla scent and the oil itself worked lovely. I was excited to order a full size bottle of it because I loved it so much. I just got my full size bottle today and it doesn't smell like vanilla at all. I'm really bummed because I loved the smell of my sample so much. I'm sure it will work just as well but I bought this for the scent just as much as the actual use of the oil.
I live in Ohio and every year my skin gets so rough and dry during the cold winter months. After I apply Apple Valley's Argan Oil my skin feels well moisturized and so much better than if I were to use creams or lotions.
My daughter started using my Argon oil every time after she washed her hands, and was loving how her hands were healing from the weather chapping. So I've started, too, with the same great results!
I use this oil 2X/day on my face; it keeps my skin soft and supple even during the winter when I walk to work every day!
This oil is like no other skin care product I have ever experienced. My fingers & hands have not been this soft in years! Also like what it does to my face as well. Great moisturizer and replenisher.
I love the Argan Oil. I use it to remove eye make-up and it does a great job and I feel better about using that rather than the store make-up removers. I also use on my face and neck as a moisturizer and it feels great. I have very oily skins but still use this on my face. It is also great for hands and I use on my nail beds to push back my cuticles. Love love love this proudct.
My face was too sensitive for this, every time I used it I looked like I had a sunburn, but I really like it on my hair. It helps when I flat iron it, so my hair doesn't get dried out. I will buy it again, for my hair. =)
I have been using AVNS products to moisturize my face for just shy of a year now. I absolutely love how the Argan Oil keeps my face from getting dried out with the harsh MN winters. For the more humid months I fall back in the unscented jojoba oil. I couldn't be happier!
this was the only product I liked. the only product that really worked and it actually smells pretty good! I used it on my skin and hair and it was absolutely amazing!
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.
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.
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!!!
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!
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.
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.
Apple Valley products are a treat IN the shower and AFTER.....what's not to luv????????
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.
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!
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!!!
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.
I enjoy using this as a facial moisturizer - it leaves my skin soft without being greasy!
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!
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!
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!
Wow. It's like silk and a bottle. I promise I will never ever be without this product. Just amazing, completely amazing Apple Valley!
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 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.
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. :)
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!
I have dry skin, so it's just what the Doctor ordered. I am also using it on my baby bump. ;-)
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 :)
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.
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!
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
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.
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.
It amazes me how it moisturizes my skin but also leaves it super soft too!
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!
I use this as a Facial moisturizer. I love the way it makes my skin feel!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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. :-)
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.
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!
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.
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. :)
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.
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.
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! : )
I have been using this oil now instead of regular moisturizer after I wash my face. I was nervous at first because I tend to have sensitive skin and break out every time I try a new product. So far no major breakouts!! I am definitely sticking with this one as it makes my face feel and look so soft.
Great moisturizer. Love the vanilla scent.
I have been using Argan oil on my face after my shower in the morning and before bed and have truly had amazing results! I have tried several anti-aging creams and lotions in the past and have not had successful results. This oil has gone beyond my expectations! It has smoothed fine lines and given my skin a healthy glow. I love it and will never put anything else on my face!
