Mogador has specialized on argan oil production for 10 years. Worldwide sales are made from our office in Germany while our production plant is located right in the heart of the argan forest. Harvesting and processing is done by the Berber women alone
Originality: The pristine, premium organic argan oil of the company Mogador, is produced in the argan forest directly - a UNESCO Biosphere Reservation in southwest Morocco. The authentic oil is cold-pressed naturally and in accordance with the criteria for ecological production.
Consistency: All stages of production are carried out by locally trained Berber women. Trained under the patronage of Mogador Maroc, the AFA and the support of highly qualified professionals, the female members of the association have become familiar with the strict food directives for the production of certified natural products. Thus, quality of the organic argan oil produced on-site in the argan forest is very high while the resulting added value remains among the Berber women. This initiative to reduce poverty and increase the income of the Amazigh population in the argan forest, allows us to offer a high quality argan oil to our customers in Europe and all over the world, both in compliance with international hygiene and quality standards.
In this way, Mogador provides a product which promotes a high quality of life, whether as a delicious food ingredient and essential wellness and Cosmetic product. Even more, this product meets with our concern to improve the ecological and social conditions of the Moroccan Berber living in the argan groves.

Thus, our customers can enjoy a high-quality and natural organic argan oil with a shelf life of 24 months while at the same time, working conditions of the Berber women are improved and made easier.
