Argania Butter supports the Moroccan communities that provide our argan oil and the global community. Please join us in helping make the world a safer, healthier place for all who inhabit it.
Our Argan oil is imported from our producers and partners in Morocco who employ and empower about 500 women from 6 different female-run cooperatives and family farmers in Morocco. Fair-trade and sustainable development are the foundation of these cooperatives initiatives. Through fair-trade the women are guaranteed a competitive salary. This fundamental income propels the social status of the women and the cooperatives allow them to escape the isolation they otherwise face.
In addition to their earnings, the women are provided with opportunities for personal growth through education. Some personal growth includes:
- Advancement in literacy and environmental education programs
- Business skills
- Decision-making processes
- Needed income to support their families
- Better access to health care
- An overall better standard of living
It is estimated that three million people who live in rural areas depend on Argan oil for income! Because it has a direct impact on their socioeconomic status, the women take full responsibility of the harvest and production of argan oil. By supporting Argania Butter, you are not only benefiting your body, you are contributing to the protection of the argan tree and the empowerment of our women who produce this remarkable oil.
