Pure Argan Co sources its oil directly from one of Morocco’s few Fair trade certified cooperatives. By only sourcing Fair trade certified oil, we stand committed to supporting the cooperative workers as they strive to improve their quality of life and that of their community.
With standards including protection of worker’s rights, the environment, and payment contributing toward the Fair trade minimum price and premium; Fair trade works to benefit small-scale farmers and workers, who are amongst the most marginalised groups globally. Through trade rather than aid, we help enable them to maintain their livelihood and reach their potential.
The raw materials used in our products carry certifications including ECOCERT. One of the most well-known and respected certifications. Eco Cert is the very first certified body in developing standards for organic and natural products globally. It guarantees that the product you are purchasing is not only of the highest quality but an environmentally friendly and organic one. Eco Cert currently certifies in over 80 countries and thus confirms our Argan Oil is not only organic and pure but that it was created from the Argania Spinosa tree using environmental-friendly cultivation and harvesting techniques.
Pure Argan Co believes that beauty should be cruelty free. We are proud to be Leaping Bunny approved. A global programme, Leaping Bunny requires cruelty free standards over and above legal requirements.
