What do we have in common with goats that climb trees? They eat the fruit of the argan tree found in Morocco, the same trees that create argan oil, which we love to rub on literally every part of our bodies.
Argan oil, also known as "Liquid Gold," has been used by Moroccan women for centuries for its beautifying benefits. The oil is so popular because it is a 100 percent organic source of vitamin E and essential fatty acids, making it something of a celebrity in the world of beauty.
