I bought this in the smaller bottle once before and I didnt have the exact amount and once BB found out they solved the problem for me. I went ahead and ordered a pound of this stuff, and was not disapointed this time. I got the exact amount I needed. BB knocks it out of the park with costumer service every time! This oil is not nutty scented which means that even though it was expeller pressed it didnt reach high temps. When argan oil has a nutty scent it means the nuts were heated before the extraction phase or during the extraction phase. It is a light oil and very moisturizing and even though it can be pricey it is so much and i mean SO MUCH cheaper to buy a full 16oz here than buying a 6 oz bottle from josie maran for the exact same thing. I put this stuff in everything I make from body oils, to balms. And even though argan oil tends to fluctuate in price BB almost always has it for the best price. TREAT YOURSELF!
Although I have not tried Argan oil in my recipes yet, I was researching its properties and reading reviews on the subject. I saw where one reviewer had an issue with the Argan oil sold here and it caused some concern for me and I imagine others as well when they read it. SOOOO... I immediately consulted the GOOGLE and did some extensive research on Argan oil properties and what to expect. The following has been copied and pasted from a Wiki article: Workers gently roast kernels they will use to make culinary argan oil. After the argan kernels cool, workers grind and press them. The brown-coloured mash expels pure, unfiltered argan oil. Finally, they decant unfiltered argan oil into vessels. The remaining press cake is protein-rich and frequently used as cattle feed. Cosmetic argan oil is produced almost identically, though the argan kernels are not roasted to avoid an excessively nutty scent. The decanted argan oil is left to rest about two weeks so that solids suspended in the argan oil settle to the bottom, creating a natural sediment. The clearer argan oil is further filtered, depending on the required clarity and purity. Pure argan oil may contain some sediment. This is a natural part of the production process and does not affect quality. (end quote) As you can see...there is a difference in the oils. I believe what is being sold here is cosmetic grade and that is what I was looking for. Thanks
This Argan oil is high quality and this is a great price comparatively speaking. Will definitely buy more!
I use this in my hair conditioner and a salve I make. I like that it is refined because it doesn't have a strong smell. It adds a nice quality to my conditioner that really makes my curly hair smooth with just the right amount of shine. It is also great in my salve and absorbs pretty well into my skin. Next I would like to try to make some kind of hair mask using argan oil but I don't know how or even where to start really. I guess I'll have to do more research. Anyway I would definitely recommend this!
First of all I was quite dismayed to see that it arrived in a clear plastic bottle. Rule No 1: Argan oil should always be stored in a dark bottle because light destroys it's best properties. I transferred the oil immediately to an amber glass bottle. Now I have bought Argan oil numerous times over the the years from different places so I'm quite familiar with how it should behave, smell like etc.This is first time I bought from Brambleberry and I'm really surprised that it doesn't have the light nutty scent typically characteristic of Argan oil. In fact no scent whatsoever. I put it in the fridge and it remains liquid. The old stock I still have from another supplier solidifies a bit in cold temperatures, which is how it should normally behave if pure and uncut. So unless u are saying all the other suppliers have sold me inferior Argan all these years then something has to be wrong here right?
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Louise! While I can't speak for other companies, I can tell you our argan oil is a real product. Our argan oil is refined, meaning it doesn't have as much nutty odor and it doesn't have any solids suspended in the mixture that would thicken upon freezing. We believe that not only is this product easier to work with without sacrificing quality, but we can also offer it at an affordable price point. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!
