Argan oil is pressed from the kernels of the fruits from the argan tree (Argania spinosa (L.) Skeels; Sapotaceae) that is endemic to southwest Morocco. Cold pressed argan oil is characterized by high levels of linoleic and oleic acids, tocopherols (in particular γ-tocopherol), and minor compounds such as sterols, carotenoids, and squalene. The main fatty acids in these triglycerides, are oleic and linoleic acids (47% and 33%, respectively), as well as omega-6 fatty acids. Saturated fatty acids in the triglycerides of argan oil are stearic and palmitic acid (5.5% and 15.5%, respectively). Minor components of argan oil include polyphenols, squalene, carotenes, triterpene alcohols and sterols (spinasterol, schottenol). Pre-clinical and clinical studies report hypolipidemic, hypocholesterolemic, hypoglycemic and antihypertensive effects of nutritional use of argan oil in addition to its well-documented anti-oxidant and moisturizing effects used for external cosmetic applications. Used as food supplement and solvent aid for lipophilic compounds.
