Shop Morocco.


I was a little doubtful

I was a little doubtful, kind of on the fence with this product. Mainly because of the price. But I took the risk anyway and bought the big bottle. I have to say it’s been so worth it. I use it every single day, mainly at night, sometimes during the day. I even use it under makeup. It as made my skin really soft and it moisturizes it really well. Malak Bio from Shop Morocco is one of my favorite products. I can’t imagine life without Argan oil. ~ Joan Wilcox ~ USA


Exfoliating body scrub

After much hesitation and conflicting advise, A friend put me onto Shop Morocco. They have a superb range of Argan products. The one that caught my eye was the exfoliating body scrub. I placed my order and with great supprise my order arrived within 5 days. So I finally got to try this luxurious natural exfoliating body scrub that softens your skin. It  is nothing less than incredible , the moisturizing facial scrub deeply cleans and hydrates your face and body, leaving a lovely tingling fresh feeling were ever you use it. , I use this in conjunction with cosmetic argan oil. I feel 10 years younger.  ~  Suzy  Gooney ~  FR

I was amazed

I have dry skin that gets extremely dry in the Winter, Cosmetic argan oil has been a lifesaver for me. I use it in the day instead of my regular moisturizer, I put my makeup over top of this and have never had a problem with it being too oily. At night I use Moisturizing Balm With Bio Argan Oil. Both products are by Malax Bio. I was amazed how little you use, you really only need a tiny bit of it for your whole face, I put a few drops on both cheeks, forehead, and my chin, it sinks in to the skin so beautifully and makes your skin look nourished, healthy and refreshed. When I use it under my makeup, I give it a couple of minutes to sink in before applying anything else. ~ Anne Cooper ~ UK


My hair is much softer

I have found that argan oil does make my hair much softer and easier to detangle than any other oil. I’ve tried coconut oil, broccoli seed, castor, etc. But nothing compares. To apply I take a drop, rub it between my hands and then smooth the hair past my shoulders down with my hands, then grab my hair as if I’m going to tie a ponytail and distribute the rest of the oil on the underside. I do this when my hair is not completely dry, but still partially damp. I think it works a little better in terms of softness. ~ V Tunny ~  UK





After trying every oil type under the sun to soften, detangle and tame my frizyness. I have finally found a winner. This was my last chance. I was fed up and disillusioned. However, I am so glad I decided to purchase this oil. It makes my hair feel like pure silk. I don’t even want to wash my hair because I looks great even after days of wear. I use Malak Bio Argan Oil and use about 10 drops in my long hair. Best hair decision I have ever made! This is an absolute must in my hair care regimen. I use is day and night, I LOVE IT!  ~ Kristi Homes ~ UK


Culinary Argan

A friend recommended Malak Bio culinary Argan, after trying it himself. I was amazed by the taste. I will never revert back to olive oil. The antioxidant virtues are really an added bonus for me. Boring salads have become amazing with a very special taste. I love the nutty flavor!, I even take a spoonfull on it’s own every morning. I also ordered the cosmetic version for my skin and hair, and its equally as amazing. My skin has recovered its elasticity and radiance. I’m A Happy customer.  ~ John Lowe ~  USA

Hooked for life.

After using Argan oil for a couple months I could really see a difference in my face, my skin felt smoother, toned and hydrated.  It’s even reduced wrinkles. I also started to put it on my neck and upper chest. Then a friend at work asked me what I was using on my face & neck. Well  I was hooked. She had noticed an improvement in the skin on my face and neck. Now I’m  useing it on my arms & legs aswell. A little goes a long way and I feel cost is fair. I buy Organic cosmetic oil from Shop Morocco. The shipping to the states is a little expensive, but the cost of the oil is very reasonable. Making the overall purchase very competitive. Plus it’s a great product. Guess I’m hooked for life. ~ Jule Dent ~ USA


Anti Acne

 I have oily, acne prone skin which can be a bit temperamental at times. Hearing so much about Organic Argan oil and how great it is for all skin types including oily skin, I decided as I had nothing to loose, to give it a try. Two weeks into using it, my face started to clear. Argan is a great oil for the under eye area. I love it, I use a very small amount around my whole entire eye area nightly and by morning the skin around my eyes is so soft and hydrated. Argan oil soaks in within minutes of application. You only need a small amount. I have no wrinkles, dark circles, or crows feet, but I do have a few fine lines and since using this oil there has been major improvements. I will continue to use it for preventive measures. The fact that it’s natural and doesn’t cause any irritation around my eyes is a definite plus for me. Argan oil is a great natural alternative to irritating eye and acne creams.       ~ Diane Collins ~ USA


aceite de argan1I Love it

This really is natural shine in a bottle. I use a brand named Malak Bio, a bio argan oil from Shop Morocco. I have use’d it on my fine hair, for several weeks now, mostly a few drops on the dry ends and to give my hair a nice shine. This is such a great alternative for all the chemical serums that are loaded with silicones! I use it both on wet hair (as a leave-in conditioner) and dry hair (as a finishing/smoothing product) and it never makes my hair too oily. I Love love, really love it.                  ~ Sally Jones~ UK






Now my hair is in great shape.

 There are lots of oils that are great for hair, but without doubt pure argan is a great option for dry hair ends as it is fairly light yet very effective. More important for me it’s 100% natural. I use it overnight on my ends once a week, you only need the tiniest amount so it’s great value. Just make sure it’s cold pressed if possible and, more importantly, 100% pure; it should smell toasted/nutty. I use a different oil blend on my scalp, again overnight, and remove the lot with a very gentle clarifying shampoo the next morning followed by my usual shampoo and conditioner. My hair looks very shiny, bouncy and split ends are transformed. It’s easy to go overboard so use the smallest amount to start off with. This regime has replaced my weekly Aphogee regime now my hair is in great shape.  ~ Ivonne Keene ~ USA

 Face mask

I made my own face mask, after reading a little on the internet. As a base I used Greek style yogurt, about 4 teaspoons, 2 teaspoons of honey and several drops of Cosmetic Argan. The quantity of argan depends on the person and I suppose the pocket. I used about 6 drops. Mix well and apply to a clean dry face. leave  on for at least 10 – 15 minutes, then wash of with warm water. It always leaves me feeling fresh and rejuvenated and my skin silky soft. Argan oil is definately the best natural hydrating toner out there.                            ~ Jenny ~ FR

 It is delicious drizzled on a salad

Culinary Argan oil has a beautiful amber color and a smell similar to roasted peanuts. The flavor is unique to argan oil, nutty and complex. It can be used as a cooking oil if the tempreture is kept low, but is best reserved as a flavoring oil. It is delicious drizzled on a salad, with couscous, or on a pizza for, Used similar to the way sesame oil or fine olive oil is used. It also works very well with sweets, as in amlou (a delisious blend of argan oil, honey, and almonds). Culinary oil can also be used on the body. Just a few drops of argan oil conditions the skin, nails, cuticles, or hair, and it doesn’t leave the skin feeling greasy.                                                       ~ Caroline Batsford ~ UK

Facial body scrub

Have you tried this yet?  Facial body scrub with cosmetic agan oil” From Shop Morocco, it’s nothing less than fantastic. I bought a 250ml jar which for only €12.50, I felt a real bargain. It’s wonderfull, leaves my skin feeling fresh and radiant. It’s like I have a buzz in my skin for hours afterwards. I would definately recommend it. They say “This scrub eliminates gently impurities and dead cells which may dull the complexion.

Instantly transformed my frizzy mess

Over the years, I’ve pretty much tried every lotion and potion, at times I believed these dry, coarse, frizzy locks of mine were untamable. I cannot believe it has taken me so long to discover Argan oil,  it is truly a miracle hair product. Useing it for the first time it instantly transformed my frizzy mess. My hair dried in a fraction of the time and the straighteners just glided through it, leaving it all soft and swishy, you have to trust me, this has never happend. Don’t be fooled by the hype into thinking that all Argan Oil treatments are the same, they are not. 100% pure organic is the one for me. I would recommend “cosmetic argan by Malak Bio”.  ~ Ingrid McGrady ~ GER


Great oil for the under eye area

The brand I use is Malak Bio, from Shop Morocco. I use it not so much for my entire face. But it’s a great oil for the under eye area, I have oily, acne prone skin which can be a bit temperamental at times. I’ve heard and read so much about Argan oil and how it’s great for all skin types including oily skin, so I decided to give it a try. One week into using it, I experienced a couple of breakouts. Not sure if it was from the oil or my occasional hormonal breakouts, so I stopped for a while and returned back to it a few weeks later. The same thing happened again. So I quit using it for my face and started using it for my under eye area. I love it, it’s a great oil , . I use a very small amount around my whole entire eye area nightly and by morning the skin around my eyes are so soft and hydrated. It’s not that oily and soaks in within minutes of application. I’m always sure to use a small amount. I have dark circles (I had) and a few fine lines and since using this oil there has been major improvements. I will continue to use it for preventive measures. The big bonus for me is the fact that it’s pure and natural, It doesn’t cause any irritation around my eyes is a definite plus for me. What a great natural alternative to those irritating eye creams.  ~ Maxine Vensala ~  CA


making argan oil

Slop it on

The hell with a few drops, the trick is to slop it generously on your face, and massage for several minutes. Then leave it overnight. Don’t worry  that it’s oily when you sleep, it’s worth it. When you wake up the next morning your face is immaculate!! Forget make up. You can even skip the concealer.  I wake with my face totally transformed literally overnight from red and super dry and pimply to soft glowing and clear. At first I didn’t like sleeping with it on my face, but you soon get used to it. I have tried and used several brands but now I’m down to two and both are awesome. Aadaguen and Malak both are available from shop Morocco online. The only beauty product I need.   ~ Kari Lovich ~ UK

My experience with argan oil

I have oily but dehydrated skin, I’m extremely prone to acne with sensitive , clogged pores. That easily get eczema and/or rosaceea. In short I have horrible skin.
I have managed over the last year or so, to keep it fairly clear by diet and simple routine ,but i still felt it needed a little more. So I figured to adjust my routine by adding an oil . A friend suggested Argan, So after many long hours of reading reviews and articles. I decided to give Argan oil a try.
Being wary and a little sceptic, I started a small patch test on neck area. Massaging a few drops of argan oil. I left it on for about 15-20 mins then washed it off with cleanser.
In just a few weeks my neck is wonderfully smooth and I could feel that the argan oil had worked wonders, because at the same time. The untreated area of my neck and jaw line was covered in clogged pores and tiny spots.
Obviously I use it on all my face and neck area now, and I’m so pleased with the results. I love the way my skin now feels. It’s a pity I never found Argan oil earlier.
I would most definitely recommend Argan oil, It’s changed my life.

I suffer with joint pain

For 2 months I’ve been using this product. It was recommended by a friend who has a simular problem, I suffer with joint pain and artritis in my hands and knee joints. I use cosmetic argan on my surface skin, plus I take a teaspoon full of argan culinary every morning. It took a while to build up to a full spoonful but now I’m used to it I actually  love the taste. 2 months down the line and I feel better, I know this is a long term treatment. But the early results are promising, especially as it’s now winter, and thats when I normally suffer the most. The products I use are by Malak Bio from Shop Morocco. Who I wholeheartedly recommend.                               ~  Stefan  ~  USA

I have extremely dry skin and I love that this product is super-moisturizing.     ~  Connie ~  USA

Argan the Miracal Oil from Morocco

October 19th, 2014

Miracle Products and Liquid Gold.

Breakthroughs and miracle products have become a common occurrence in the beauty industry. Cosmetics and hair products popping up left right and center. All claiming to be the ultimate in beauty treatment and care.

whereas putting oil on your skin and hair, was once thought to be a big no no. Today the proliferation of oil extracts as an essential ingredient in hair and skin cosmetics. is becoming more and more popular. What seemed to be worst beauty tip, putting oil on your face and hair, is now an every day occurrence. Of course this is nothing new, For centuries it’s been a well-kept secret known only to the Berber women of Morocco, who use it to nourish their skin, hair and nails.

The times have changed and now it’s time to learn why this miracle oil, has become every beauty expert’s favorite secret ingredient. Argan oil, now the most hyped beauty cosmetic in the industry today. Extracted from kernels of the fruit nut, of the Argan tree. The tree comes under many names, varying from The tree of life to A gift from God, the oil often referred to as Liquid gold. The tree itself is extremely well adapted to drought and other environmentally harsh conditions of southwestern Morocco. Where it now grows. The genus Argania once covered all of North Africa. But now endangered and under protection of UNESCO. The argan tree grows wild in semi-arid soil, its deep root system helping to protect against soil erosion and the northern advance of the Sahara. This is the reason why the Argan oil is said to be a very rare type, which brings its price higher than other oil products.

Before modern times, the Berber women of ancient Morocco would collect undigested argan pits from the waste of goats which climb the trees to eat their fruit. The pits were then ground and pressed to make the nutty oil used in cooking and cosmetics. However Todays oil used in cosmetic and culinary products is harvested directly from the tree and processed with machines. The production of Argan oil is just as tedious as it is precious. The nuts are stripped of the soft pulp wich surrounds them. Then cracked open, the kernals are then ground to a thick paste. This is then squeezed out until the extraction of Argan oil is completed.

The production of argan oil is having a noticeable environmental and social impact. Argan oil production means that the trees are now seen as a valuable resource. This has led to their preservation with a secondary impact on the environment. The labour-intensive nature of argan oil production, now frequently carried out by women’s co-operatives, has provided a steady income for many women and their families, improved the social status of some women and has encouraged producers of other agricultural products to examine the co-operative model.

Dr. Philip Steig, Ph.D., M.D., professor and chairman of the Department of Neurological Surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College and Neurosurgeon-in-Chief at New York Presbyterian Hospital, said “experts are hailing the benefits of Argan oil as the newest super food. As a rule of thumb, about 30% of your diet should come from fat, no more than ¼ from saturated fats such as meat and butter.” The rest should come from healthier, mono- and polyunsaturated fats. said Steig”

Established sources of these healthy fats include:

• Nuts
