100ml of our organic pure, natural, raw, cold pressed Moroccan argan oil is quite literally food for your body, both inside and out!  The vast majority of argan oil on the market is cosmetic grade, edible grades of cold pressed oils are treated with greater care and hygiene maximising nutritional content. Our edible natural argan oil is wonderful for skin, hair and nails with over 80% skin nourishing fatty acids, antioxidants and anti-ageing Vitamin E and by adding it to dressings, dips and smoothies you get all the nutrition profile from this oil on the inside too.

Our argan oil comes in a simple, pipet dispensing bottle and as you can see it’s not in fancy beauty packaging. We don’t spend money on expensive beauty marketing as we prefer to get the very best argan oil at the best prices in the UK because we love simple, edible beauty without the hype!  Our argan oil is 100% pure organic and unrefined (unroasted) argan oil. The oil comes from a charitable, non profit organisation that works with a local community in southern morocco to improve education for children and socioeconomic opportunities for women and their families.

Raw argan oil retains the distinct smell of argan, this is a very unique aroma, there is nothing quite like it.  It has been variously described as nutty, like popcorn, rubber bands or even an earthy muddy smell. Different noses will detect different aromas from a bottle of raw argan oil so it is impossible to describe it. This is because it is raw virgin oil and no heat has been applied to it.  It does not smell like deodorised argan oil (where heat has been applied to remove the raw smell) or cosmetic grade argan oils where the oil has often been diluted or perfumes have often been used to remove and change the scent. This means raw argan oil has the highest nutritional qualities for inside and out as it is in it’s most natural state. 

To produce the oil the argan nuts are sustainably harvested and cracked by hand. They are then cold pressed to preserve the rich nutritional profile producing a beautiful edible oil that is silky and smooth. It’s also not greasy and absorbs really quickly.

We disagree with the markup of inferior quality oils with added preservative and perfume nasties in beauty products and source the best quality organic oils in bulk that we can offer at the best prices.  Our customers can then get the very best pure oil for multi use just without the fancy beauty packaging and marketing!  Give it a try, we hope you love edible beauty as much as we do.

Argan oil has been eaten in Morocco with it’s known health benefits for years and we think it is only a matter of time before it becomes more mainstream like coconut oil and starts to be used in more recipes and restaurants.

We sell our argan oil in dark bottles to protect the oil, always avoid argan oil that is sold in transparent or plastic containers as argan oil does not react well to sunlight over time.  Note that in cold temperatures (winter) argan oil will form small clumps in the bottle.  Just add a little heat to the bottle by placing near a warm surface (ie. a radiator) and the clumps will disappear.

Our new Edible Beauty line is turning beauty on it’s head.  We’re simplifying beauty by offering the very best, certified organic, edible, cold pressed oils for all the nutritional goodness your body needs, both inside and out, at sensible, affordable prices.

At the RealFoodSource we believe skin, nail and haircare doesn’t have to consist of processed, preserved, unnatural and expensive products. Nor do we believe beauty products need to be a big cocktail of complicated ingredients. A few simple, high quality products to cleanse, nourish and moisture can be all that is needed. However, the products you do use should be the very best quality in their most pure, unrefined state. 

Why Edible and Cold Pressed?

Our food grade oils are collected on a first cold press of the nut, seed or fruit and usually in much better hygienic conditions than cosmetic grade oils. Cosmetic grade oils are often the cheap leftovers from later presses once the valuable edible grade oils have been collected. Cosmetic grades of oil are often extracted by other methods such as using distilling or solvents which remove the full goodness in the oil.  Edible grade means our oils have the highest levels of vitamins, minerals and fatty acids for your whole body.  Our oils are 100% what they say they are so if you try our awesome Moroccan argan oil it smells and looks like pressed argan nut oil but that’s exactly why it’s got the very high levels of vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids. It’s not been refined, deodorised, or bleached out.  

Why Certified Organic to Food Standards?

We believe many organic claims on cosmetic products to be quite dubious. There is no agreed EU organic cosmetic standards as there is for food and while many local bodies such as the Soil Association have created their own standard for cosmetics on best endeavours it is not the same as strict EU organic food standards.   By being certified food grade our oils are certified to strict EU organic standards.

Why the Excellent Price? 

Beauty doesn’t need to be expensive. Marketing budgets, third party distributors and fancy packaging are what make it pricey.  We are led to believe with beauty products that price drives quality. However, we are not driven by profit and we don’t add in expensive marketing to our price or unnecessary packaging costs, our oils come in a basic recyclable sunlight protective dropper bottle, jar or tub.  This means we can make our Edible Beauty products available at an exceptional price for the quality of the oil.

Don’t forget we’ve also got loads more food products in our range that can fill your beauty routine too.  From cocoa butter balms to apple cider hair rinses, to masks created from our oats and green tea there’s so many ways you can simplify beauty and get the best for your whole body inside and out.  We hope you love our simple approach to edible beauty and love our products as much as we do!
