Have you heard of Argan oil? It's supposed to be fantastic for your skin and hair.
This morning we stopped at the argon oil cooperative. Many young women work there pounding the nuts to separate the nuts to extract the kernal which is processed to get the oil.
They are young women doing the nut cracking. Our guide, Abdul, said its a good job for them. They get a decent salary and the business is a cooperative intent on improving the lives of women.
We got to see, hold and even taste some of the nuts, shells and kernels.
I bought some oil and creams.
The sample lip balm I tried was great.

Neat! Never heard of it but it looks like a lot of work. Glad you supported them by buying a few things
